Not a week goes by without at least one news article about some kid who has been bullied and decided to react in some awful way. Today we bring you the story of a woman, who was bullied as a child, and how her grownup self reacts to negativity.
Margaret Cho, standup comedian and actress, last seen in “Drop Dead Diva”, recently had a Twitter rant when she received negative comments regarding how she looks. She tweeted, “You criticize a woman’s body – and young girls see it. You murder us all inside. You are responsible for our slow genocide. May you suffer.”
One fan took offense at some of the language that, the sometimes salty, Margaret used and said that she was no longer a fan. In response, Margaret took to her personal website with a heartfelt post that people need to read before opening their mouths with stupidity. Margaret writes, “I want to defend the children that we still are inside, the fragile sensitive souls who no matter how much we tried were still told we were not good enough. I want to make the world safe and better and happy for us. We deserve beauty, love, respect, admiration, kindness and compassion. If we don’t get it, there will be hell to pay. I am no saint, but I am here for you and me. I am here for us, and I am doing the best I can.”
