Dire Straits - Money For Nothing -- Homophobic??!

I grew up with the Dire Straits - Money For Nothing song that came out in 1985 and loved the 'I want MTV' line and loved the music video--one of the firsts to use computer graphics. If you don't know, this is the song that says 'Microwave ovens' and 'I want my MTV.' But I listened it today on the radio (103.5 FM) and my dad thought it was a remix and it was actual the original song because it says 'faggot.' I was shocked to hear the word 'faggot' on the radio. I was shocked but yeah, this song has been controversial for years, for it being homophobic, sexist and more other stuff.
