Hey cait345 and Gig Goer (sorry I used Gig ‘Spider’ before - that’s a friend’s nickname!)
Great to see the community working and encouraging if they said they’ll restore it. My only thing with using change.org and the like is that they can provoke negative backlash and more complaints when other routes are available - and we need to give Spotify some time to follow up on their promise :)
Well, that would actually be homosexual pride (gay is everyone's word and means happy and also means flamboyant, not homosexual), which is not even a genre; it's just that they are trying to infiltrate everything and so many people and organizations want to jump on the bandwagon to support what is popular. But remember, what's popular isn't always right. I never noticed anything about the Christian genre, or sub-genre being gone. I was just going through posts and just saw this and was curious. If ya'll want it back, then start spreading a link to this post on social media, or start other posts.
Are ya'll referring to it being missing from the list of genres, under "Browse"? I saw that it's still there. I just checked. I have noticed that they support other ridiculous things like this attached playlist.
Hi madmanonwheels, yes we’re all referring to the ‘Christian’ genre no longer showing. I just checked again and still can’t see it in the browse genres/moods section, though evidently Spotify have promised to restore it. Can you post a screen shot? BTW while we could use social media to ask for it to be restored, in my experience this could stir up negative comments and more complaints from those who don’t want it, so I’d prefer to give Spotify a few days to follow through on the promise ... cheers :)
OK so since I posted my reply your screenshot came through in full, definitely showing the Christian genre. I’m wondering then if its been removed in certain countries. FYI, I’m in New Zealand. Where are you?
I'm in Australia, and it isn't visible. Probably Spotify thinking that since "gay marriage" vote passed, it's all good to go the extra mile and remove a genre which only "bigoted" Christians would like.
