“When someone says something negative about my face or body I will always and forever just completely lose my shit, because I have so much hatred in me, a violence that lies just beneath the surface of my delightfully illustrated skin. Being called ugly and fat and disgusting to look at from the time I could barely understand what the words meant has scarred me so deep inside that I have learned to hunt, stalk, claim, own and defend my own loveliness and my image of myself as stunningly gorgeous with a ruthlessness and a defensiveness that I fear for anyone who casually or jokingly questions it, as my anger and rage combined with my intense and fearsome command of words create insults meant to maim, kill and destroy.”

Margaret Cho defends her profanity-laden Twitter tirade yesterday in a post on her blog. Cho had posted photos of some new tattoos she got on her ass and when she received a couple of nasty responses, she went off, prompting some of her other followers to say she was out of line. I think Cho has the right to post photos of her new tattoos. I think assholes have the right to call her nasty names. And I think she has the right to tear them a new one. I think she does that exceptionally well in the full blog post, which you can read here. [via Jezebel and NYMag.com]
