    Like many other teenagers preparing for prom, Utah senior Keziah Daum wanted to find a dress that would stand out, "something that would be more unique and bold and had some sort of meaning to it," she said in an interview with The Washington Post.

    一如其他許多為畢業舞會做準備的青少年,(美國)猶他州高三女生琪亞.道姆要找一件能讓她鶴立雞群的裙裝,「一件更獨特與大膽,但又多少帶點意義(的裙裝)。」她在接受華盛頓郵報訪問時這麼說。

    Daum decided to browse a vintage store in downtown Salt Lake City, where she came across a red cheongsam, also known as a qipao — the high-collared, form-fitting traditional Chinese dress.

    道姆決定去(猶他州首府)鹽湖城市中心的一家古著店逛逛,並在此巧遇一件紅色旗袍—高領、合身的傳統中式裙裝。

    "I thought it was absolutely beautiful," said Daum, who is not Chinese.

    「我覺得它美呆了。」並非華人的道姆說。

    After the dance, like many other social media-savvy high schoolers, she posted a photo in her dress alongside her friends. "PROM," she wrote.

    舞會過後,一如其他沉迷網路的高中生,她(上網)張貼自己穿著旗袍與友人合影的照片,並附註「畢業舞會」。

    She had no idea it would elicit such a response.

    她完全沒想到這會招致此類回應。

    "My culture is NOT your …. prom dress," a man named Jeremy Lam tweeted days later, sharing the photos she posted.

    「我的文化『不是』你的…畢業舞會禮服,」一名名叫傑瑞米.林的男子數日後轉推她張貼的照片時,如此寫道。

    "I’m proud of my culture," Lam also wrote. "For it to simply be subject to American consumerism and cater to a white audience, is parallel to colonial ideology."

    「我以我的文化為榮,」林還寫道。「(讓我的文化)臣服於美國消費主義與迎合白人受眾,等同於殖民主義意識形態。」
