People are debating how to draw the letter 'x' and it's surprisingly controversial.

There are some things you just do without thinking. For instance, the way you draw the letter 'x' was probably something you learned as a kid, so you don't put too much thought into your technique, right? After one Twitter user posted a chart of all the different ways to draw the letter 'x', the internet is officially overthinking how they've been writing the letter.

@SMASEY asked Twitter one simple question: which way do you draw an X?

They shared a colourful chart which included the various ways one might draw an x. Needless to say, people quickly declared their allegiances. However, not everyone agreed on the "correct" way to write the letter 'x'.

People provided very compelling reasoning for why their way was the proper way.

Most folks had strong feelings about 7.

And people threw in new and innovative ways to draw the letter 'x'

To be honest, the whole debate was making people rethink everything.

Thinking that a friend or family member might be a 3 is quite frankly SCARY.

Judging by people's answers, 7 and 8 seem to be quite popular. 5 and 6 are also techniques that people admitted to using. Folks were skeptical about many of the others but we know for a FACT that people who use 1-4 walk among us–hidden in plain sight.

What do you guys think? How do you write the letter 'x'?
