I've been thinking about the use of the X to decenter gender binaries in our language and to be inclusive of all people. Personally, I remember learning about the X in Xicano when I was in high school and felt empowered to express my indigenous ancestry. Later I learned how Xican@ could also include people outside of Mexico and was a way of embracing an indigenous worldview. I think that the inclusion of the X in Xicanx is another way to incorporate this indigenous worldview that doesn't conform to a gender binary that is either male or female. #xicanxart #xicanx
