Internationaler Frauentag: Madonna über Altersdiskriminierung


Zum Weltfrauentag ein Hinweis auf Madonna, deren neues Album am 6. März erschienen ist. Zuvor hatte sie der Zeitung Rolling Stone ein Interview gegeben, in dem sie sich sehr deutlich über Altersdiskriminierung bzw. Ageism äußert. Einerseits hebt sie die Unterschiede hervorhebt, die es bei Altersdiskriminierung zwischen Männern und Frauen gibt, anderersetis betont sMadonno den Unterschied zwischen Altersdiskriminierung und ethnischer oder rassistischer Diskriminierung.

"It is still the one area where you can totally discriminate against somebody," she says, "and talk shit. Because of their age. Only females, though. Not males. So in that respect we still live in a very sexist society."

Weiter sagt Madonna Rolling Stone: "No one would dare to say a degrading remark about being black or dare to say a degrading remark on Instagram about someone being gay," Madonna continues. "But my age – anybody and everybody would say something degrading to me. And I always think to myself, why is that accepted? What is the difference between that and racism, or any discrimination? They are judging me by my age. I do not understand. I am trying to get my head around it. Because women, generally, when they reach a certain age, have accepted that they aree not allowed to behave a certain way. But I do not follow the rules. I never did, and I am not going to start."
