Say whut? This whole "cultural appropriation" thing has gone so far off the map of being reasonable, that it's in another universe. I suppose they think that in all the millennia that people have been piercing their ears (men, too), nobody else might have invented hoop earrings at least 2500 years before there was ever a concept of Latinx students? If it turns the language into a childish mess where it's a difficult thing for students to compose a complex sentence either in speech or writing, I would say that it is damaging. It's damaging when a language shifts to the point where one generation has no idea what another generation is even talking about.
