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).

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))
meh I can go on with how much bs fireemblem has that the addition is the least of my worries, it takes trial and error with perma death and youre just going to reset the game anyways because you dont expect a new wave of troops to appear out of the blue and slaughter your people left and right because you weren't prepared for it. Also when it comes to dark souls, theres a lot of difficulty when it comes to balancing difficulty when you want the experience to still be similar, and it's not like the game is going to be so unfair to you, you can always take your time to become stronger before taking more of the content head on, or you can think of your plans or how to deal with enemies, etc, the game throws tools at you that you have to look for, youre basically going to thumb down the experience if you simply just slap difficulty being easy because dark souls is built around the world and not just the gameplay itself, its not in the likes of a game like Bayonetta where it's mainly centered around gameplay.
Kinda reminds me of how some car enthusiasts have called car manufacturers sellouts for releasing sports cars with automatic transmissions when they haven't before despite the fact that automatic transmission these days are superior to manual ones in most situations except for things like drifting(and it helps them keep profiting in those cars on top of that).
