Has any of you ever used "no homo" after a sentence, or thought about using it?

For the record, "no homo" does not indicate any kind of homophobia. It simply means, "I realize that what I just said might have a gay subtext, but don't worry; I wasn't implying anything of a homosexual nature."

Examples:

  • Dude, you look good in those khakis. No homo.
  • I'm glad I saw that musical last night. No homo.
  • Pass the hot dogs. No homo.

By the way, I'm not suggesting that non-gay men necessarily should or should not use this phrase; I just want to get a read on who does. Your thoughts?

i have never heard nor read this phrase before.

and i think it is utterly unnecessary.

I think it's stupid...

Never heard it before.  I expect it's readily punctured with a snigger and "Yeah, whatever you say."

Never heard of it.  Sounds stupid.  If people think you're gay because of random crap like that, "no homo" ain't going to change their mind.

I think the phrase is unnecessary. I would hope your friends know you.

It's a joke guys my age say, usually after saying something very homoerotic. It sounds dumb if you are srsbsns about it.  

Regardless of its intention, it is a term derived from derogatory slang for gay people. Additionally, it is also implying that we cannot say things of an apparently effeminate nature without being associated with homosexuality while simultaneously implying we do not want to be considered a homosexual while saying these apparently socially unacceptable male phrases. Completely ridiculous phrase.

2nd. Well said.

Perhaps generational; never heard it used except here.
At my age I don't give a crap about what another guy would think about my sexual orientation.

Agreed. Unless someone is asking me out on a date, I really don't give damn what they think.  If I make an off the cuff comment and somebody misconstrues they can either man up and ask me to clarify or pound sand.

Now that was a funny post !

This link is hilarious!!
