Make No Bones about Something

bone

If you make no bones about something, you’re speaking plainly and telling the truth. For example, if you are honest and admit that you didn’t do your homework, you’re making no bones about it. This expression dates back to the 1500s and some people believe it had to do with soup. If there were no bones in a soup, a person could swallow it without worrying about choking. Likewise, when you make no bones about something, people can feel confident "swallowing" your answer.

or "Make No Bones about Something", To say clearly what you think or feel although you may embarrass or offend someone.
