Attack against: Morals
Area of case: Private
The sequence number 61 of the podcast "indubio" was deleted by Spotify, where the journalist Birgit Kelle was invited to speak about her book "Noch Normal? Das lässt sich gendern!" (Still Normal? That can be gendered!), which criticizes the gender movement. Spotify did not give any precise reason for the deletion, it simply said "content policy violations". Birgit Kelle has accused the streaming service of censorship functioning under the umbrella of the theme of "cancel culture". The Podcast "Indubio" has never used hate speech or any form of insulting behavior. The makers of the podcast have also filed a protest to Spotify for the unfair deletion, which was forwarded to the technical support.
Kelle wrote on her website about the situation: "Yes, I take it personally, because it concerns me personally.
The podcast is available on YouTube. There Kelle presents her book "Noch Normal? That can be gendered! Gender politics is the problem, not the solution" and is critical about a society in which everyone can choose their gender. She also warns the use of puberty blockers, which prevent the biological formation of the secondary characteristics of the visible sex of girls and boys.
