Frequently Asked Questions:
Q. How do you pronounce “Xi Xon” and what does it mean?
A. Xí Xọn, pronounced “see-sONg”, is a Vietnamese adjective that means vain, provocative or sassy. My parents would use this term to discourage unladylike, inappropriate behavior or dress. I am reclaiming this phrase and overturning narrow, patriarchal ideals of women (read: quiet, pretty, happy and skinny).
