The wearer and the clothes together tell people who you are. Therefore, it’s not your gender [that] can distinguish you, but you as a human being with [different characteristics].

Q11: How do you understand this sentence?
This sentence reminds me of the quote: Everyone is born equal. Gender may not determine your choice of clothing. This sentence pays due respect to those people who may have different characteristics.

Q14: After reading this passage, how can we write about our view? 
First of all, we need to put forward an argument (论点). Second, we should mention some valid detailed information to support our argument by using data and giving examples. And sometimes, quoting professionals (引用专业人士的话) can make our passage much more convincing and persuasive.  

Read for critical thinking
Q15: What is your understanding of fashion? 
Fashion may refer to the beautiful clothes worn by famous models. But from my perspective, it also means being comfortable with myself in my surroundings. It also means the clothing and style we choose as individuals. To me, it is expressing myself outwardly in harmony with how I feel on the inside. It is a reflection of my inner self. Just as the world’s most famous playwright William Shakespeare once said, “To thine own self be true (做真实的自己).”

1. Review what you have learned.
