    It also disturbs me to read these comments where people seem to quickly disregard how appropriated Geisha was and how it was playing off of Asian stereotypes.

    This.

    This could have been a great launch point for people to learn something outside of their framing of the world; an opportunity to learn how to make their work more accessible across cultural boundaries. Instead people are cheering each other on for being intolerant.

      This! What's even more baffling is how some responses seem to say "branding doesn't matter". As if the choice of icon, product name, and supporting imagery aren't supposed to shape someone's perception of a product. It's very bizarre.
