I would also prefer to keep my Spotify in German. If you want to support ideologists, feel free to do so, but please don't make it the default setting and add an option for them to turn it ON separately.
Ok, someone else already had the "idea" to simply remove the gender asterisk (which would probably be the best solution). It's already closed.
Frankly, I am not very optimistic that Spotify will return to standard German. So, I would like to change my app language to English, wich is not possible on mobile apps. My "idea" to add this option was duplicate. So I can only support the original idea. But this idea will get closed too in a few weeks, because it is not gathering enough kudos (50 per year). It's pathetic!
I quite agree. I find it outrageous that the German Spotify team is abusing the platform for political purposes. The use of this so-called «gender-star» is by no means generally accepted, but on the contrary, extremely controversial.
I am not willing to finance such nonsense with my premium fees.
I agree. When navigating from a song to its album or artist, it was very clear and satisfying to press on "Kuenstler" (and i always associated a gender neutral and normal meaning with it anyway, like "band") . Now "Kuenstler*innen" takes away a few seconds of my thinking time and nerves every time i have to see this socially corrosive gender nonsense. They should at least make it optional.
