    thenes saidOffensive? It's not meant to be offensive. And plenty of gay-friendly people use the phrase. It's just meant to indicate that the speaker is not actually gay after saying or doing something "gay" like complimenting a fellow male friend's looks. I swear, some of you guys will get upset over any inconspicuous thing.


    I find it distasteful and smeared with a bit of homophobia.

    Aside from the obvious homophobia implicit in a no homo, the main thing that phrase says to me is that the person using it is so ill at ease with himself and his place in the world, that he needs to constantly prove his heterosexuality.

    RollDontWalk saidNobody has said it to me, but if they did I'd definitely call them out on it. I've heard of the phrase before and found it bothersome.


    Yeah, riiiight, RollDontWalk.
    Y'all stop being SO HOMO!
    I thought i've seen some stupid posts on here before, but...

    How is there implicit homophobia? It's not "not faggy" or anything. There's nothing homophobic about it. And to assume that the speaker is "ill at ease with himself and his place in the world" is not only assuming an awful lot, but is also pretty absurd. It's just a phrase. And it simply provides straight guys with a way of complimenting each other. It's not the big of a deal.

    I can see your point but It just irks me that in order for a compliment to be give this stupid phrase has to be uttered to distance themselves from the horrible that is a homo.

    I don't mind the phrase. In fact I'll admit that I've used it and I mean no disrespect towards gay men.

    But now you're assuming that they themselves think being a homo is horrible when that is likely not the case. The reason for the phrase isn't because being a homo is horrible, but to clear up any potential confusion. Similarly, I've told several girls that they were gorgeous but then reassured them that I was gay so that they wouldn't think I was hitting on them. I suppose I could have said "no hetero" to the same effect. icon_biggrin.gif That's all it is.

    It's not like I call people out on it. I'm just conflicted as to whether to just ignore it or try and make a joke out of it.

    Yes, they do. I'm conflicted as to how to react when my straight friend says it, so casually. In a way it bothers me and feels homophobic to me. Should I just shrug it off and laugh about it?
    Tell them to knock that shit off, because it's basically like saying there's something wrong with being gay because they didn't want their comment to be perceived that way.

    I've heard a number of body builder jocks use it at gyms. I think it's funny as hell. I never interpreted it as being innately negative. People don't like to thought of as something they are not.

    Why is everything so serious?

    the psycho x friend of mine use to say that and a lot more, tried everything, from laughing at it to admitting to him that I am, yet he still went at it, that is a sign of a sick person who wants to get a kick out of your reaction. My suggestion is to get away from that asshole.
