    Pondering the use of "no homo" when guys say that they love each other. There was a big outcry when Roy Hibbert (NBA player) said this a couple of weeks ago, but I think that it should have been celebrated by those who were offended. When someone says that they love a kid, they don't say "no pedo", or when they say that they love their sister, they don't say "no incest". Those things are far enough outside of social mores that we don't have to clarify. The fact that "no homo" gets used indicates that it is becoming enough a part of social mores that clarification is needed. (whether or not that is a good thing is a completely different question, start your own thread :) )

    A hip hop throwaway phrase from about 8 years ago that somehow is still lingering.

    Truthfully, when I was an immature young lad and we(my friends and I) did something that could be deemed "homo," the funnier it was, but adding "no homo" was always lame and ruined the comedic-value of whatever of was being said/done. The more extreme and believable the funnier. Outside of saying it after doing something comedic, I still thought it was silly. If you're a man and say, "Man, I love that dude, but no homo," I always thought that it was a little silly. I mean, just really unnecessary.

    I find "no homo" to be far more humorous than just calling something "homo."

    essentially says you aren't comfortable with how your sexuality may be perceived with the conversation at hand, if you have to add "no homo" to it

    No homo, but I'd really like to have intercourse with someone of the same gender.

    "That's not gay, that's just considerate!"

    Seriously, though, that is all Hibbert said? I read like three different articles trying to find out what he said, but nobody would just declare it. I was forced to assume he had found some way to combine "n word" and "c word" and beat a puppy to death with them.

    That's fine if you're describing merriment circa 1920.

    We didn't call it either, the comedic-value was that it was supposed to be blatantly and obviously "homo," there was no need to call it anything. I was also 15-16, for the record.

    I thought the whole "no homo" thing was replaced with "man crush"?

    Or just whatever you feel like calling gay for whatever reason you feel like calling it gay.

    Had to look that one up in the urban dictionary. Clever
    Does this cover the old Italian kiss on the cheek thing?

    Possibly, unless it was the kiss of death. :dead:

    I think the "bromantic," relationship is a great comedic/dramatic dynamic. House and Wilson, Shawn and Gus, etc.

    All this time I thought Michael Corleone was gay for Fredo.
