I love to visit blogs. Hell I spend half my work day visiting blogs (shhh..don't tell my boss). One thing I've noticed in regards to the comment section of blogs is the phrase "no homo" written in parenthesis after a compliment is given to a celebrity. This phrase is used by both women and men commentators. I have read posts from men who will compliment a man on his shoes and put "no homo" behind it. What the hell is that about? Are people so afraid of being labeled gay that they need to make public declarations of heterosexuality from behind the computer screen? Who in the hell cares about your sexuality? I don't think people, gay or straight, visit blogs to make love connections so why would someone need to reassure people whom they have never met that they are heterosexual? Seems a little silly and immature to me. Why can't a compliment be given and it be just that? In 2006, we should be past all that shit, I guess some things never change. Maybe when I leave a comment on a blog I should put "no idiot" in parenthesis just so everyone knows I'm not an idiot. Fatwa "no homo's", it is written!
