January featured article

Mx (variously pronounced as mux [IPA: məks or mʌks], mix [IPA: mɪks], em ex [IPA: ɛm ɛks], mixter [IPA: mɪkstər], or mixture) is meant to be a gender-neutral alternative to the titles Mr. and Ms. Just as the Ms title gives no marital status, the Mx title gives no gender. Mx is the most widely-known of several gender neutral titles in the English language, largely because of the work of nonbinary activists who ask organisations to recognize it. Depending on the individual, people who have nonbinary gender identities may ask to be called Mx, or by a different gender-neutral title, or by a title that is not gender-neutral, or may ask that no titles be used for them at all.
