Airbrush, anyone?

So Ikea wants to sell product.  Why are people incensed about the fact that their catalog was altered for a specific market?  What the heck?  Now here I am, incensed that people are incensed.
(Now I hear that Ikea has apologized.  Again, what the heck?)

It is possible that I am just too dense to survive in this world.

Who cares what they do to sell a product? There's all sorts of shenanigans going on every single day to sell us stuff and rarely is it good.

What did they do? Did I miss something?

Oh, Lin, they "airbrushed" (digitally, I'm sure) all of the women out of the catalog for distribution in Saudi Arabia. I mean, I don't care.
