“If you are a woman, if you’re a person of colour, if you are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, if you are a person of size, if you are a person of intelligence, if you are a person of integrity, then you are considered a minority in this world.” Margaret Cho
Margaret Moran Cho (born December 5, 1968) is an American comedian, fashion designer, actress, author, and singer-songwriter. Cho, of Korean ancestry, is best known for her stand-up routines, through which she critiques social and political problems, especially those pertaining to race and sexuality.

The Way I See It: I had enough of LABELS …who started labeling us per our sex, colour, size etc.. Who created these boxes and convinced us to enter willing into each one of them and suffocate to death!!! aren’t we all humans? breathing, thinking, have feelings, brains, minds, thoughts, goals and a life to live and enjoy!… We are the Majority and they are breaking us down to different type of Minorities …. black people come to this side…. gay people come to that side ….women will be here …. big people will be there ….etc …etc….
What I know …that day after day people are evolving toward the ONENESS concept and one day break free from all these boxes they have created for us. One day we, us the majority, will be able to regain our authentic selves …our true selves …our self-esteem and prevail, breaking away from all these labels that were meant to control us and making us feel like shit trying hard all the time to fit into the world they created for us. We will realized that they spent so much money and effort to teach us how to judge each other - to divide our world into a hundred labels and boxes that we don’t need.
Look for your self-esteem, look for your true self, love it as it is, honor it and celebrate it. WE ARE THE MAJORITY.
Love and Light
P.S.: I love the way CHO conveyed her message, so below is the link to her show where she said this quote and her message to us. I also wrote her beautiful words as well – couldn’t say it better CHO! (minute 1:22.00) (16+)
It’s going to be really hard to find messages of self-love and support anywhere especially women’s and gay men’s culture it’s all about how you have to look a certain way or else you are worthless … you know when you look in the mirror and you think oh I am so fat I am so old I am so ugly ….don’t you know that is not your authentic self but that is billions upon billions of dollars of advertising magazines movies billboard all geared to make u feel shitty about yourself so you will take your hard earned money and spend it at the mall on some turn around cream that doesn’t turn around shit …
When you don’t have self-esteem you will hesitate before you do anything in your life …
You will hesitate to go for the job you really want to go for,
You will hesitate to ask for a raise
You will hesitate to call yourself an American
You will hesitate to report a rape,
You will hesitate to defend yourself when you are discriminated against because of your race, your sexuality, your size, your gender
You will hesitate to vote
You will hesitate to dream
For us to have self-esteem is truly an act of Revolution
And our Revolution is long overdue
I urge you all today to Love yourself without reservation and to Love each other without restraint …unless you are into leather
