The usage of “no homo” is a phrase often used after one inadvertently says something that “sounds gay.” This phrase stigmatizes homosexuality and perpetuates a narrow understanding of masculinity. People sometimes use it as a disclaimer, for they fear that what they are about to say defies gender binary norms and will earn them ridicule from their peers. “No homo” is an expression of insecurity and homophobia and reinforces that to be LGBTQIA is bad.


The use of this phrase should be avoided because it promotes stereotypes, stigmatizes and is homophobic.
