Fazer's GEISHA chocolate.
BEcause apparently some troll said it was insulting towards Japanese and asian people, the same with the Eskimo ice cream.
The whole Inuit racial slur thing I understand but why is using "Geisha" in the brand name of chocolate considered offensive exactly? It's not even a beauty product (because if it was I would at least somewhat understand the rationale behind considering it offensive).
@Alineah said in Potential Reason for the Game's Censorship:
maybe sega can add a censored mode for those people, which should keep everyone happy
While I agree that the censorship should be optional for the most part (and even with that option they should least change or replace the bath scene so a Fazling newborn with the mind and body of a five year old doesn't feel up a teenager with said teenager responding by telling the kid to keep going (how is this not more sexual than a skimpy outfit? Did every anti-censorship person here just collectively decide to not consider why she wanted him to keep going?), the idea that everyone can be made happy with something like this is insanely idealistic (I say idealistic and not optimistic because I am a realist, not a pessimist).
Remember when Fire Emblem added the option to disable permadeath? Remember the backlash to people asking for an easy mode in Dark Souls? (even though history has long past proven that this would only serve to improve game sales and and only a select few opposed to the idea would actually stop playing the games, (in fact, I'm entirely certain most of the anti-cencorship crowd here (to be clear I'm mostly netrual myself as I don't like the restrictions to the height slider but as I've stated multiple times in this thread, I am opposed to bath scene as it played out, I'm also opposed to Al being naked when he first appears but no one seems to care about that being censored anyway) are still playing the game))
I don't know why they got so angry at the Geisha word.
But like I said, it was a troll who suggested it and I've recently heard the term of Cultural gatekeeping.
Something where you try and gatekeep some culture from X things or X places.
As for the Inuit/eskimo thing, I have never once thought it ment anything bad.
To me it just was a brand of tasty and good ice cream which would change the meaning from a negative to a positive.
The same which happened to the word Fag which turned from a cigarette to other things.
