Tim Torkildson was until recently a blogger for Nomen Global Language Center, a Utah-based school that teaches international students English. But he says he was fired because of a blog post about homophones, which was interpreted to be about gay people, The Salt Lake Tribune reported. The school's owner, Clarke Woodger, denied that he fired Torkildson for that reason, but also said that "people at this level of English ... may see the ‘homo’ side and think it has something to do with gay sex."
