For Discussion: The Phrase “NO HOMO” is Completely Getting Out of Hand

For some reason, the phrase “NO HOMO” has become apart of the urban community’s everyday conversation. Why do people feel that when they pay a compliment, for example, “I love your jeans,” it has to be followed by a “NO HOMO” disclaimer. This makes absolutely no sense. Jermaine Dupri brought this up in a recent post on his blog:

WHATS UP LIFERS HAPPY FRIDAY. LAST NIGHT AT THE J’ADORE PARTY A GUY WALKED UP TO ME AND SAID JD I F*CKS WITH YOU, YOUR MY IDOL NO HOMO. NOW WE TOUCHED ON THIS A LIL ON LTL ONCE BUT MAYBE I’M GETTING OLD. WHY DID HE FEEL THE NEED TO SAY NO HOMO? SO THAT’S TODAY’S TOPIC. WHY ARE THESE NI**AS SAYING NO HOMO SO MUCH I DON’T GET IT. I’M STARTING TO FEEL LIKE ALOTTA THESE GUYS THAT’S SAYING IT ARE IN THE CLOSET AND THEY TRY TO THROW THAT OUT TO KEEP US OFF THEIR TRAIL. CAUSE IT’S BEING SAID NOW LIKE U CAN JUST SLIP INTO BEING BISEXUAL. SO THE FIRST QUESTION FOR YALL IS HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THIS TERM OR SAYING?
WHAT’S THE PURPOSE OF SAYING IT AND WHAT ARE THEY TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH ?

We agree with JD. There must be some underlying reason for people to say this. Unless a female comes up to another female and says, “I like the way them t*t-tays is poppin’ out that shirt,” then there is no need for it. On the male side, unless a male comes up to another male and says, ” Man, I like the way your jeans are hanging off your a**,” then the phrase “NO HOMO” is not needed.

Why do people feel the need to use this term? Does it really justify a person’s sexuality or are they just hiding behind this phrase, “NO HOMO”????

    This post is gay – NO HOMO

  • ALWAYSONPOINT

    I think people are saying it just because they heard it and they think its cool to say. Just like the word “phat” it will die out soon. hopefully sooner than later

    “has become apart of the urban community…”

    It’s “a part,” dammit. I swear, reading this site is like checking my 8-year-old nephew’s spelling homework.

    The level of homophobia in the community is really depressing. The gays are going through their own civil rights campaigns and we should be helping them every step of the way. It always strikes me as strange that people will get on their moral high horses over homosexuality, but will sleep around like crazy(70% percent of black children being born out of wedlock).

    If we’re going to progress, we need to let go of Christianity and it’s fairy tales which are causing more harm than good. You can’t reach rational conclusions on homosexuality if your thinking is dominated by ridiculous superstition.

    Embrace Atheism boys and girls, it’s the only logical path!

    I wrote my post in a rush, so it doesn’t sound quite right. I’ll check back later when I have time to get my thoughts together. But remember, Christianity and belief in a non-existant God is the number one cause of homophobia.

    People, mainly dudes, probably say it cause they’re afraid of being labeled as a homosexual as homophobic as people act nowadays. They would like to give credit where it is due (ie, clothing style) but maybe feel they need to say “No Homo” so it is taken for something else. It is a bit redundant though.

  • Girlie Girl

    Cause people are always calling someone gay.O you hugged your friend your gay and so on. It’s like you can’t do anything without someone like aww snat he or she is Gay. I say it all the time no homo.

  • http://www.lynnmonroe.net ChicDCChick

    I mean he has a point, why do males feel the need? I think its gay that men have to keep saying that they aren’t gay. Making a comment isn’t going to make a man think you are gay.

  • tiff

    well….ms lorretta looking good with her “shaved head” in all….NO HOMO!

    it’s just a freaking saying….i.e groovy, jive, right on, pimpin, fly, popin…etc.
    NOTHING is original nowdays sooo who cares about “no homo”? like i go around thinking ppl gay based on a freakin sayin.

  • Jade Silver

    Well it appears the gay community is taking over society, hence people feel the need to differentiate themselves.

    @ Medievalpoetry – the same way it was not intended to have children out of wedlock, it was not intended for us to be attracted to the same sex. So don’t condemn one action and promote another.

  • http://www.lynnmonroe.net ChicDCChick

    @medievalpoetry I can agree that homophobia is huge, but I can’t agree on a think you said about religion. It amazes me that ppl think like that. No offense to you.

  • drenk

    sayin no homo comes off sounding gay, if youre not confident enough to compliment another man, without fearing being seen as gay then youre doing other stuff that makes people quesiton your sexuality

    @NOPHACE THE GREAT

    “I WILL BE LAUGHING AT YOU WHEN YOU ARE FOREVER BURNING IN HELL”

    That’s mighty Christian of you…

    The Gays want the get married…to me thats fine…they want to be treated like a couple as far as life insurance…and spousal rights…thats fine. Plain and simple to me, the “civil rights” they are fighting for, and the “civil rights” that we had to fight for a two different dimensions. I get it, but to sit there and say that we need to help them??? Like its our duty? I think not.

    I have plenty of Gay Friends and everything, but to me, Man and Woman where made to go hand and hand. I think these days ppl just do what they want, which is fine.

  • I'm Just Me- WE LOVE 'EM BIG, WE LOVE 'EM CHOCOLATE!!

    I am with the people that say it is just a phrase like Phat and Right On, Jive Turkey and all that stuff is. I don’t really care about that stupidity either way because the people I converse with don’t feel the need to say that. They say what they say and you take it how you take it. That is how conversation is anyway.

    @MC Hamster

    hahaha,your funny. I’m a christian, but i hate how violent we tend to be.

  • Ummmm

    Its clear that Atheist feel like they have burned by God or Jesus…go to church. I mean what do you do? Go somewhere just to slam how the Bible is wrong? Slam Jesus, and God? Find scientific reasoning for every question? I think you have too much time or your hands.
