Is it a better compliment for women to be beautiful or to be funny? [x]

Just watched the trailer for this—kinda wish the movie was just all about her.
Dear internet - you are awesome for making these
Dear White People (2012)
DEAR WHITE PEOPLE follows the stories of four black students at an Ivy League college where a riot breaks out over a popular “African American” themed party thrown by white students. With tongue planted firmly in cheek, the film will explore racial identity in “post-racial” America while weaving a universal story of forging one’s unique path in the world.
“If you are a woman. If you are a Person of Colour. If you are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, if you’re a person of size, if you’re a person of intelligence, if you’re a person of integrity, then you are considered a minority in this world. And it’s gonna 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’re worthless. You know when you look in the mirror, and you think, ‘Ugh, I’m so fat, I’m so old, I’m so ugly’, don’t you know that’s not your authentic self, but that is billions upon billions of dollars of advertising, magazines, movies, billboards, all geared to make you feel shitty about yourself so that you will take your hard-earned money and spend it on some turnaround cream that doesn’t turnaround 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 wanna go for. You will hesitate to ask for a raise. 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.”Inspirational Women I Love —> Margaret Cho
When I was little, probably 8 or so, I used to tape Margaret Cho on Comedy Central and watch it over and over and over. I wanted to be like her so bad. At the time, I thought it was just the ability to “be funny” but over time, its the realization that Cho is just living her life on her terms, as a survivor, as a badass, and as so much more.
And that is what I want.
yo even though i am a little iffy about margaret cho this is def one of the best encouraging quotes i’ve heard
sorry, this is not fun, but it is lovely!
