Sorry about your grief. But, at 71, I feel your pain.

As for the girl herself, she was on Fox last nite. A delightful young woman.
I saw an interview with her and I don't remember who was doing it, probably FOX. She is a very beautiful young lady that seemed very well grounded and intelligent. She was most definitely undeserving of the ridicule.

One thing I noticed that I haven't seen mentioned is that dress was purchased off the bargain rack at a thrift store. Which means someone else thought so little of their culture that they discarded it.

This young lady should be commended for rescuing this symbol of a culture and putting it to its best use as a beautiful dress.

BTW, young lady is hot.

Don't stop moving, that's when things start hurting. At our age, walking is the single best exercise. Walk, and then walk some more.

Teenager’s Prom Dress Stirs Furor in U.S. — but Not in China
When the furor reached Asia, though, many seemed to be scratching their heads. Far from being critical of Ms. Daum, who is not Chinese, many people in mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan proclaimed her choice of the traditional high-necked dress as a victory for Chinese culture.

I am very proud to have our culture recognized by people in other countries,” said someone called Snail Trail, commenting on a post of the Utah episode by a popular account on WeChat, the messaging and social media platform, that had been read more than 100,000 times.

“It’s ridiculous to criticize this as cultural appropriation,” Zhou Yijun, a Hong Kong-based cultural commentator, said in a telephone interview. “From the perspective of a Chinese person, if a foreign woman wears a qipao and thinks she looks pretty, then why shouldn’t she wear it?”

If anything, the uproar surrounding Ms. Daum’s dress prompted many Chinese to reflect on examples of cultural appropriation in their own country. “So does that mean when we celebrate Christmas and Halloween it’s also cultural appropriation?” asked one WeChat user, Larissa.

Others were quick to point out that the qipao, as it is known in China, was introduced by the Manchus, an ethnic minority group from China’s northeast — implying that the garment was itself appropriated by the majority Han Chinese. In its original form, the dress was worn in a baggy style, mostly by upper-class women during the Qing dynasty, which ruled China for more than 250 years, until 1912.
Perhaps the counter to "cultural appropriation" should be "cultural outrage appropriation" whereby people who are not Chinese are proclaiming that others shouldn't "appropriate" Chinese culture when it seems the Chinese clearly do not share that feeling...

I'm guessing the SJW weenies want Chinese-style clothing to have a tag that reads "Chinese buyers only"...
