Is Butterfly any dumber than poor Gilda?

Subject: Pinkerton 

I think the opera paints him as something of a rube. Also narcissism was not such a big deal in thinking back then. But his actions are entitled. And yes, they are the same selfish ones of a Japanese man. 
Japanese housewives were grumps and geishas were trained in socializing. So Butterfly is a bit thin in the real geisha attributes, by the way. 

They are big time facilitators and founts of cultural knowledge. I had a big kahuna geisha as a friend. Butterfly is a western 
Male fantasy geisha. She is a newly minted baby geisha. 

Thanks for the great comments in this thread! This is fun!
