Anonymous asked: hey there! congrats on your recent win. I just happened to notice you've dubbed your new (very lovely, btw) dress as "chinese style", "chinese dress", with your name on the back in chinese. you may not be aware, but chinese culture and language isn't a cute accessory for non-chinese people to play with as they wish, and is quite disrespectful. next time, perhaps think twice before appropriating another culture for your solo costume.
Awkward for you.. I’m half Chinese.
I’m just going to send you all of my bully anons from now on and let you deal with them, that was perfect! I don’t understand why anon was so upset though…. Is it really so wrong to appreciate another culture whether you are or aren’t directly related to it? Think of how many irish dancers aren’t irish and we copy irish tradition every time we dance. I don’t understand why it would be so terrible to immerse yourself in another place or people…… And your dress is gorgeous :)
