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

Bush

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.

These men also tend to have other sexual diseases, such as syphillis, which suggests that they are involved in unsafe sexual behaviour and are not using condoms."

Y3 Line-Up: Kanye West, Reggie Bush, Ian Thorpe, Slava Mogutin

Y3

An interesting line-up at the Y-3 show yesterday at Pier 40 for Mercedes-Benz fashion week in New York.

From left to right: Hip-hop artist, Lupe Fiasco, "gay dresser" Kanye West, Milla Jovovich, Kim Kardashian, football pin-up Reggie Bush, "not gay" Aussie swimmer Ian Thorpe, and model Veronica Webb. And then directly behind Thorpe are NYC-based artist and photographers Brian Kenny and Slava Mogutin.

Rufus Wainwright also apparently showed, New York's The Cut reports. They add: "Aussie Olympic legend Ian 'the Thorpedo' Thorpe['s]...arms are as long as you’ve heard but [he] wasn’t nearly as bloated as recent rumors have suggested."

Thorpe was looking sharp (where's travel companion Daniel Mendes?). Another shot of Thorpedo as well as Rufus Wainwright and Yohji Yamamoto, AFTER THE JUMP...

Ted Haggard Quits 'Spiritual Restoration', Cuts Ties with Church

Reverend Ted Haggard, the New Life church pastor who agreed to undergo a "spiritual restoration" aka "pray the gay away" following revelations that he was involved with escort Mike Jones, has reportedly quit that program and cut ties with his old church.

TedhaggardHaggard was forced from his position as the head of the megachurch following his admission of "sexually immorality" after Jones came forward saying the pastor paid him for sex over a period of three years.

The Denver Post reports: "Ted Haggard's leadership of New Life Church for many years was extraordinary and the depth of spiritual maturity that is found today in the church is in large part attributed to his leadership as the founding senior pastor," the statement said, adding that the church's 'overseers' and 'restorers' would not make further comment about Haggard's 'spiritual restoration.' New Life added that Haggard has joined another mega-church, Phoenix First Assembly of God, and that its founding pastor, Tommy Barnett, is overseeing an 'accountability relationship' with the disgraced Colorado pastor. Barnett could not be reached Tuesday night. New Life has been at odds with its former pastor since he left. In its statement Tuesday night, church officials said, 'New Life recognizes the process of restoring Ted Haggard is incomplete and maintains its original stance that he should not return to vocational ministry. However, we wish him and his family only success in the future.'"

Just one year ago today, a four-member oversight board announced that after three weeks of intense counseling that Haggard was "completely heterosexual".

UPDATE: Men's Fitness has supplied us with the real Reggie Bush cover.

We apologize for the fun poked at their draft copy (after the jump), thank them for reading Towleroad, and ask them to please continue the hotness!

Reggie Bush shows he's still in fine shape on the September issue of Men's Fitness.

What's not in fine shape, however, is the state of the magazine's editorial team.

The top coverline teases "10 Excercises that Suck" (sic). Apparently one involves copyediting.
