"I use my clothes to control how others see me. As a woman, I don't have the power to stop others from objectifying my body, and I especially do not have the power to stop the fetishization of my "asian-ness". So I use clothes to stop any gazes thrown my way. This also makes my choice of wearing more "revealing" clothes special because I am letting people look at my body for one night only before I go back to my basic clothes."
