Political Correctness ist seit Jahren ein wichtiges Thema in Nordamerika. Zwar gibt es genügend Menschen die das Übertrieben finden, am aktuellen Kurs ist aber keine Veränderung in Sicht. Ein gutes Beispiel für Political Correctness kann man an Weihnachten beobachten. Hier wünscht man sich nicht mehr „Frohe Weihnachten“ (Merry Christmas), sondern „Happy Holidays“. Sonst könnte man ja die Gefühle der nicht-christlichen Einwohner verletzen.

Ein anderes Beispiel sorgte bei mir vor kurzem für Kopfschütteln. Die Dire Straits spielten mit „Money for nothing“ einen Welthit ein, der bis vor kurzem in kanadischen Radiostationen aufgelegt wurde. In dem kommt auch das Wort Faggot (Schwuler) vor, was einen Hörer zu einem Protestschreiben veranlasste. Das Wort wird dort 3 Mal genannt und veranlasste das zuständige Gremium, das Lied auf den Index für Radiosender zu nehmen. Es darf also nur noch gespielt werden, wenn statt Faggot ein anderes Wort gesungen wird.

Hier die kritische Stelle:

See the little faggot with the earring and the makeup
Yeah buddy that’s his own hair
That little faggot got his own jet airplane
That little faggot he’s a millionaire

Es spielte keine Rolle, dass diese Stelle nur ein Teil des gesamten Lieds ist, die sich mit dem abgehobenen Musikbusiness beschäftigt. Auch der darin stattfindende Dialog spielte keine Rolle. Ich persönlich kann auch wirklich nichts an dem Lied erkennen, was schwulenfeindlich wäre. Der Entscheid beruhte darauf, dass das Wort Faggot heutzutage abwertend wäre, und sich der Umgang mit diesem Wort seit 1985 geändert hätte.

Wenigstens bin ich nicht der einzige der darüber den Kopf schüttelt. Ich bin inzwischen im Internet mehrfach auf Äußerungen gestoßen, die diese Entscheidung für Schwachsinn halten. In den Medien traute sich allerdings niemand, sich so weit aus dem Fenster zu lehnen.
