Pausing Gone Wild – Can We Press Play Already?

You wanna know what my junior high school days were like back in the ’90s. Joell Ortiz hit it right on the nose.

Boy, things done changed. A friend of mine teaches junior high over in East NY and he bestowed me with one helluva story. And it goes a lil’ somethin’ like this. Apparently, one of the bullies in his classroom was going around punching his classmates in their *ahem* private area and then screaming, “No Homo!”


You don’t wanna hear me talk about homophobia in hip-hop and I don’t wanna read your comments about it, either. What’s the point? This guy already broke it down beautifully.

What I do wanna see is more tales like my friend’s, where someone just took the pausing and no homo-ing to the extreme. Let’s call it No Homo Gone Too Far. It’s time to share…*ahem* no homo. —Jesse Gissen
