    It won't take long for these 'slurs' to become shopworn if they just get the eye rolling they deserve.
    Ya'd think, right? Yet, even with a lot of liberal leaning folks here on this site the first chance they get to drop an insult or attack somone, it frequently involves an implication that the other party in question night themselves be of questionable gender confidence. Implying homosexuality is apparently a real insult. But...being gay is no big deal, right?

    I think what it ended up was he was saying he needed to be there for his teammate "but not in a gay way."

    I use that on people who might feel insulted by it. Just like I say "hmmm...that sounds kind of 'liberal' to me" to someone who thinks "liberal is an insult." I had someone here think I was gay. I didn't take offense to it, though I did tell him I wasn't.

    That's so gay.

    Seriously...that makes it 'better'? And just out of curiosity when a black person is acting like a scumbag do you call them a nigger figuring that will insult them?

    If I did, at least I know some people here who would have my back.

    I don't call anyone "gay." However, when they spend sentence after sentence going on about butt sex, it seems to be on their mind an awful lot.

    It was the use of the word homo. That is considered to be offensive. Kind of like if he said "That's stupid, but not like a polack..."

    You know the "That's what she said" line of joking? Where someone says something that, if you try to think of it in a sexual way, could be "humerously" transferred to a female saying it. Like someone coming inside out of a rainstorm going "I'm all wet" and someone replies "THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID!".

    This is a similar joke, and at times even interchangable. In Hibbards instance, he was suggesting he did a bad job of helping out his teammate because the other teams players "stretched him out" on defense. Taking the same general statement, and apply "That's what she said", and you'll likely understand the timing joke of it better.

    Person 1: Man, those guys really stretched me out last night.
    Person 2: That's what she said!

    The differnece with the "no homo" line of joking is that instead of a second person responding to an individuals statement, it's the individual themselves making the comment.

    Person 1: Man, those guys really stretched me out last night......no homo.

    It's not saying he needed to be there for his teammates in a "gay way"...it was a joking statement suggesting that the MEN on the other team he was referencing didn't "Stretch him out" in a way one could be "stretched out" in a sexual manner, realizing that the phrasing he used could be jokingly twisted to such a meaning.

    The other instance I've heard it used, and doesn't seem to be the case in this instance, is when someone says something that the person thinks sounds like something a gay person may say but clarifying that they're not meaning it in a sexual/amorous way. Something like "Dude, I couldn't stop looking at that picture of Santonio Holmes junk!....no homo". In a lot of ways, that usage is similar to the "...not that there's anything wrong with that". One of those uses where an individual realizes something they said could be taken in a certain way, and clarifying the intent of the message.

    I'm just hitting 30, and it's not really too common in my immediete age group, but seems to be a phrasing that's popped up more frequently in the age group just back from mine.

    on what point are you having trouble grasping that no one was called a derisive term? "no homo" isn't used to insult a person, it's used to point out a term or phrase could have a double meaning

    example: someone referring to their asshole boss on night shift "he was riding my back all night" "no homo"
