Chinesische Plattform Weibo will homosexuelle Inhalte doch zulassen

Im Rahmen einer Säuberungskampagne wollte der chinesische Kurznachrichtendienst auch „homosexuelle Inhalte“ entfernen. Davon nimmt die Plattform nach Protesten Abstand.

Nach einem Sturm der Entrüstung hat Chinas Kurznachrichtendienst Weibo eine Kehrtwende gemacht und will homosexuelle Inhalte doch wieder zulassen. Die Online-Plattform teilte am Montag mit, dass ihre angekündigte Säuberungskampagne „nicht mehr auf homosexuelle Inhalte abzielt“. Der Schritt hatte heftige Empörung ausgelöst, die sich einige Hundert Millionen Mal unter dem Hashtag #IAmGay Luft gemacht hatte, bevor dieser am Wochenende von der Zensur geblockt wurde.

Der 340 Millionen Nutzer zählende Kurznachrichtendienst hatte am Freitag angekündigt, dass Comics, Spiele, Texte und Videos über drei Monate genau auf Pornografie, blutige Gewalt und Homosexualität überwacht und gegebenenfalls zensiert würden. Doch selbst das kommunistische Parteiorgan „Volkszeitung“ kritisierte den Schritt und machte deutlich, dass die Plattform zu weit gegangen war. Das Blatt forderte Toleranz gegenüber Homosexualität, die so „normal“ wie Bisexualität sei.

Homosexualität sei auch „definitiv keine Krankheit“, schrieb die „Volkszeitung“ in einem Hinweis auf die lange verbreitete und einst selbst in einigen Lehrbüchern geteilte Vorstellung, dass es eine Geisteskrankheit sei. In China ist Homosexualität seit 1997 straffrei. Gleichwohl sehen sich Lesben, Schwule, Bi- und Transsexuelle (LGBT) immer noch mit einem Tabu belegt. (axk)

 Chinesische Plattform Weibo will homosexuelle Inhalte doch zulassen

China’s LGBT people came out as a protest against an online ban on gay content. And it worked

China’s answer to Twitter, Sina Weibo, today (April 16) withdrew its short-lived ban on homosexual content, after people came out as gay to protest the ban.

On Friday (April 13), Weibo—one of the country’s most popular social networks—issued a statement that it had begun a three-month “clean-up” campaign on manga, games, short videos and other visual content relating to pornography, violence, and homosexuality. The crackdown was aimed at creating a “clear and harmonious” community in accordance with China’s new cybersecurity law, the site said, with more than 100 accounts and 56,000 posts touching on the banned themes removed so far.

Weibo’s move comes as China continues to tighten its control over the internet, punishing not only political offenses but also entertainment it deems unwholesome. Last week, authorities, citing “vulgar” content, shut down a long list of popular mobile apps, including one focused on tasteless jokes.

The ban on gay content is considered by many as yet another sign of stigmatization against LGBT people in China, more than a decade after the country removed homosexuality from an official list of mental illness. Authorities have issued bans on the portrayal of same-sex relationships on television and online series, and China’s official textbooks contain homophobic content. LGBT events are the routine subject of government crackdowns.

But Weibo’s crackdown backfired after tens of thousands of users protested against the LGBT ban under the hashtag “I am gay.” Many gay people posted their photos with the hashtag, and sometimes with rainbow emojis. One of the most shared posts is from an activist who uploaded a video from a public event where gay people, wearing rainbow-colored eye patches, asked passers-by to give them a hug. He wrote,”If I don’t say anything today, there probably won’t be any chance to do so in the future.”

In an usual move, Weibo then backtracked on its decision, and said in an announcement (link in Chinese) that its clean-up would no longer target any gay content, without offering more details. Weibo didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment on the LGBT ban.

In the past few days, a blog post (link in Chinese) with the title translated as “Hello Sina scum, I am gay” went viral on social-networking app WeChat, even though the original post and its reposts have been deleted numerous times. In the post, the author wondered why China, as the world’s second-largest economy, “can’t be inclusive of two sexualities.” At the end of the article, he made his Weibo account public, and decided to come out as gay despite long fears of discrimination. “I‘m born with it. It can’t be changed, and I don’t want to change,” he wrote.

The crackdown also spurred people to speak out in real life. Hundreds of people participated in a pride run event in Nanjing on Saturday (April 14), a day after Weibo’s announcement of the ban—a public display of activism that is becoming almost extinct in China. The event had in fact been planned and approved by local authorities before the Weibo ban was announced, but it took on greater meaning as a result of the crackdown, organizers said in a Weibo post (link in Chinese).”This is the kind of day worth remembering for a lifetime,” they wrote, adding that Weibo shut down the event’s live stream. Participants chanted slogans including “we have rainbows and courage” on the route, they said.

In the northeastern city of Jinan, PFLAG China, the country’s most prominent gay rights group, on Saturday held a support workshop for LGBT people and their parents. Though the event wasn’t planned because of the crackdown, attendees apparently took note of Weibo’s ban on LGBT content. According to online publication Q Daily (link in Chinese), two lawyers at the scene suggested LGBT people take legal action against Sina, including by suing the company in the US, where it is listed.

PFLAG China’s founder, who goes by the nickname Ah Qiang, wrote in a blog post (link in Chinese) arguing that Weibo wouldn’t have withdrawn the ban on LGBT content if were not for the “I am gay” campaign. “The essence of LGBT movements is coming out… When more and more people stand up, the only thing homophobic people can do is to delete their stupid decisions,” he wrote.

Weibo

Umkehren! Weibo und sein Maskottchen sind mit der Zensur von queeren Inhalten sehenden Auges in die Homophobie-Sackgasse gerannt. Nun wird zurückgerudert.

Die Zensuroffensive, die Weibo (das oft als Twitter Chinas bezeichnet wird) am Freitag angekündigt hatte, richtete sich gegen pornografische, gewaltverherrlichende und homosexuelle Inhalte. Drei Monate lang wolle man die Posts der User besonders gründlich auf diese Faktoren prüfen und sie im Zweifelsfall löschen. Die „Säuberungsmaßnahme“ wurde mit dem Motiv erklärt, man wolle ein „fröhliches und harmonisches Umfeld“ schaffen. Innerhalb weniger Stunden regte sich massiver Widerstand. User verurteilten die Gleichsetzung von Homosexualität mit Gewalt und Pornografie, die chinesische Division der LGBTIQ*-Organisation PFLAG bezeichnete die Zensur als „teuflisch“. Als Gegenbewegung wurden massenhaft Posts mit den Hastags #IAmGayNotAPervert (#IchBinSchwulNichtPervers) und #IamGay (#IchBinSchwul) abgesetzt. Über 300 Millionen Einträge mit diesen Markierungen sollen bis Samstag auf der Weibo-Seite zu Buche geschlagen haben. Sie wurden vom Unternehmen gelöscht. Aber sie haben offenbar gewirkt. 

Am Montag gab das Unternehmen Sina Weibo bekannt, dass homosexuelle Inhalte nun doch aus der Zensuroffensive ausgeklammert würden. Das berichtet die Nachrichtenagentur Reuters. Ob die Rücknahme auf direkte Anordnung der chinesischen Regierung erfolgt, ist nicht bekannt aber denkbar. Die Staatszeitung Renmin Ribao hatte auf den Aufschrei am Sonntag mit einem Plädoyer für Toleranz gegenüber LGBTIQ* reagiert und die aktuelle Debatte mit dem Statement kommentiert, es solle eher darum gehen, „vulgäre Inhalte unabhängig von der sexuellen Orientierung“ zu löschen.

Homozensur ist in China immer wieder ein Streitthema. Erst im Januar klagte ein Mann aus Shanghai aus diesem Grund gegen die staatliche Zensurbehörde (). 2022 finden in Hong Kong die Gay Games statt. Aktivisten erhoffen sich, mit der Veranstaltung eine gesellschaftliche Debatte über Diskriminierung von LGBTIQ* in China auslösen zu können, wo Homosexualität zwar nicht verboten, aber immer noch stark tabuisiert ist ().

​Weibo’s community manager said the changes were to “create a bright and harmonious community environment” and fulfil its corporate responsibility. The ban also covers the Grand Theft Auto game.

Within hours, Weibo’s announcement had been read millions of times and shared about 100,000 times. Hundreds of people starting posting “#Iamgay” in Mandarin, causing the slogan to start trending.

However, Weibo appeared to then ban the hashtags, and deleted most of the related 150,000-plus comments, Deutsche Welle reported.

China has banned homosexual content from its version of Twitter, prompting an angry backlash with floods of users posting “#Iamgay” in protest.

But within hours of the objection trending, the platform had also banned the rallying hashtag – and deleted most of the comments on the subject, it was reported.

The social media site Weibo issued new guidelines on Friday as part of a three-month cleanup of certain content, such as pornographic images and videos, “bloody violence” and homosexuality, according to What’s on Weibo, an independent website.

Messages replacing posts explained that they contained “illegal content”.

One Weibo member had posted: “I am gay and I’m proud. Even if I get taken down there are tens of millions like me!”

Twitter users described China’s clampdown as “a worrying development”.

One, LissofAo, wrote: “I have quit Weibo. And I heard from my friends that the tag #IAmGay, which was read over 210 million times on Weibo, has been deleted by the authority. China has taken measures to oppress LGBT groups. No surprise. And I bet there will be further steps to inhibit us.”

China, where traditional views predominate, has a poor record of tolerance towards homosexuality. A survey last year by a German website rated it as the worst country in the world for LGBT+ people.

The official account of Weibo on Twitter, @SinaWeibo, has not tweeted since 2016.
