About

No Homo is a slang expression used to clarify that the preceding statement said by the speaker was not intended as a homoerotic double-entendre. Coined in the early to mid-2000s, the phrase was initially popularized by heteronormal men as a way to reaffirm their masculinity, though its homophobic connotation has been satirized through a series image macros depicting bromantic situations that are suggestive in nature.Bạn đang xem: No homo là gì

Origin

No Homo was popularized in the early 1990s among youths in East Harlem, most notably rapper Cam"ron who later incorporated the phrase into his album lyrics in 2006. In the following years, hip hop artists like Lil Wayne and Jay-Z appropriated the phrase for their own lyrics as a way to excuse any reference that could be potentially misinterpreted, as well as other straight men who want to make a clear distinction that they do not take part in a secret gay lifestyle.

Criticisms

Parodies

In 2010, the cartoon The Boondocks aired an episode dedicated to looking at the phrase’s usage. Entitled “Pause,” a reference to another term used by heterosexual speakers to distinguish language that might sound homosexual, the episode first aired on June 20th. The episode depicted a man who was supposed to be a caricature of Tyler Perry as a closeted homosexual who used “no homo” as a way to distract people from his sexuality. Perry was furious with the parody and the episode was never aired again.
