Very much not part of the discussion, but all babies should be named "Anaheed" for a generation.

This dovetails real nicely with the recent Dissent article about criticizing big philanthropies.

The fuck is wrong with companies trying to get those sweet sweet "cap hill" $$$s??? Orange Gym should just stick with their regular shtick and blanket the area with dudes in Orange-man suits.

What's egregious about the whole campaign to me is its scale. In addition to the billboards there are also the branded tour buses going up and down the hill, and an app tie-in to a promotional campaign is such a waste of resources. It's even more unnecessary since they already have one of the most effective promotions by giving out those heavily branded shot-producing fridges that are a highly visible staple at most bars. It's poorly planned and poorly executed.

Also, while we're on the topic of contentious nomenclature, it's not called or pronounced "Saki," dum-dum gaijin.

There's also the touchy matter of Mozilla Corporation being the open-source tech-hippie cousin of a browser, and being owned by the non-profit Mozilla Foundation. Mozilla as part of a non-profit lives and dies by its public image. Being known as the Prop 8 alternative to MS, Apple, and Google software would have been disastrous.

This isn't even getting into the issues associated with a CTO transitioning into a CEO role.

Blaaargh I really appreciated #notyourasiansidekick, but Suey Park really is going off the rails in a pretty vile, prejudicial way. This is definitely reminding me of the Don't Ask Don't Tell activist Dan Choi and the consequences of his time in the spot…

Are we living in some revisionist fantasyland where talking about race is anything but messy? Or where social justice activists are pleasant, perfectly stable people? Suey Park is the Twitter queen of hyperbolic pushback and gives crazy interviews, this is clearly known. But if you think it's happening in a vacuum or is part of some"speech-chilling" conspiracy among minorities who should be happy with what they get, then I guess you live in the aforementioned fantasyland.

WTF is all this boo-boo baby "I'm a man and she offends me / she is trying to chill free speech" crap? It's verging on some weird racist intersection of Men's Rights garbage.

Why are we even focusing on her clearly hyperbolic hashtag rather than Comedy Central's ineffective PR management? Some response so simple as "Hey, that tweet looks really bad taken out of context, we're not always on top of our job, sorry," would be nice. Instead it's turned into an indictment of 'dour, humorless Asians' who somehow have a fraught relationship to mass culture after being the butt of the joke over and over again.

"Folks" is the new "You People," apparently.
