    I’m surprised and saddened that the F word is trending so high. I’ve tried to get my nephew to see that “gay” and “no homo” are hurtful, but without much success.Report

    I always found “No Homo” to be an interesting phenomenon.

    Essentially, it’s saying, “I’m going to engage in what might be a stereotypically gay behavior but I’m not gay!” Which you would think could serve to disarm stereotypes. It doesn’t seem to do that but I wonder if, over time, it is breaking down those stereotypes.

    It doesn’t make it any less offensive, of course.Report
