Politically Correct „Lord of the Flies“

Gepostet vor 1 Jahr, 1 Monat in Misc Share: Twitter Facebook Mail

Großartige PC-Literatur-Remix-Satire von Joe Keohane beim New Yorker: Politically Correct „Lord of the Flies“. (Danke Sascha!)

lord“Everyone, please!” Ralph shouted. “This is important. If a ship comes near the island, it may not notice us. We must make smoke on top of the mountain. We must make a fire.”
“Mansplain the world to us,” Jack crowed, “oh wise, almighty white cisgendered hetero upper-class man.”
The littluns wiggled their fingers.
“Oh, keep your hair on,” Ralph said.
“Microaggression!” a littlun cried. “My sister has alopecia.”

“Look, everyone,” Ralph said. “The sun is going down. We need to organize a party to go out in search of food.”
“We should hunt!” Jack said. “Kill the pig! Cut her throat! Spill her blood!”
They looked at him.

“It’s not necessarily sexist if the pig represents oligarchical capitalism,” Jack added.

“It’s certainly insensitive to vegans.”

Ich verfolge die Political Correctness-Debatte nach wie vor aufmerksam, es fällt bei diesem Thema allerdings schwer, vernünftige Quellen auf beiden Seiten zu finden. Am ausgewogensten finde ich nach wie vor die Beiträge von Jonathan Haidt und Conor Friedersdorf beim Atlantic, besonders gefallen mir die Nachbereitungen und Updates mit Lesermeinungen von beiden Seiten:
The Coddling of the American Mind
The Backstory to ‘The Coddling of the American Mind’
The Rise of Victimhood Culture
Readers Defend the Rise of the 'Microaggressions' Framework
Readers Lament the Rise of 'Victimhood Culture'
Why Critics of the 'Microaggressions' Framework Are Skeptical
