Reggie Bush: The Phrase 'No Homo' Should Be Rejected if it Offends


Asked New Orleans Saints player Reggie Bush on Twitter:

"If someone says 'no homo,' is that offensive towards gay people? 

Later adding, "I think if the 'no homo' comment offends anybody then it's most likely better left unsaid along with other degrading words...thanks guys!"

Dear Reggie, since "no homo" is used most of the time to make it clear that someone's not gay because gay is a bad thing, it's better left unsaid. Thanks for asking.

    It's VERY provocative. But listen carefully and watch to the end.

  3. Dear Andy,
    Would you have preferred that he didn't ask and kept using the phrase without caring? Didn't think so.

    Thanks for being a bitchy drama-queen fag.

  5. Christo67 and Philo, Reggie Bush is likely to never see your comments, but gay, black readers will. And for us, both "no homo" and your "no negro" counter wound. Even if you're trying to illustrate a point (and Christo, that's being generous), you're missing your target and instead alienating members of your own LGBT community.

    Robert , Boo don't worry Andy's crowd ran the Black LGBT's from here away during the Barack/Hillary battle in 2008 so the little bit of us that are still around we just dust it off the shoulder and keep it moving it's obvious we have queens that still have issues with race. That's why I can't understand their problems with the Tea Party???

  6. The only offensive thing here is the dumbfounding torrent of racial abuse unleashed by some readers.

    My question is, why is this permitted? Blatant abuse and bullying of this kind should be immediately stamped out by site moderators.
