you are right. maybe you can modify the current logo and make it look a little more graphical and abstract, less like a drawing of an actual onion from a biology textbook for children? if one can still recognize the onion maybe the move wouldn’t be too controversial.
i think a more stylized logo would definitely help make Tor look like the serious tool that it is and not like some likeable, but amateurish hobbyists project.
