Margaret Cho

 

I have always found Margaret Cho extraordinarily brave and bold, fearless in her own way, she is more a comedian than a singer, but every time she touches something it is outrageous and funny… some may not find her very funny but nobody can stay indifferent, she is a provocateur and I imagine that this recent video for Peaches’ song ‘Dick in the Air’ has probably chocked a few right-thinking people… I had a hard time to remove these fuzzy pink and yellow costumes from my head afterwards. I saw Cho at Largo during a Fiona Apple show, as she hangs out a lot with the Largo crowd, and she told us very dirty jokes. 

Margaret Cho plays it funny but she is also often very serious and very talkative on Twitter. Over the weekend she revealed very dramatic stuff about her personal life: She repeatedly affirmed her support for sex workers, divulging she had been one of these prostitutes when she was a young girl

‘Sex work is simply work, ‘she tweeted. ‘For me it was honest work. I was a sex worker when I was young. It was hard but well paid. There’s no shame in it.’

‘I support sex workers because I was one and I know that it’s a job that’s needlessly shunned by society when frankly we should be worshipped’

And when someone asked her about how this kind of activity may affect relationships, she told even more about her very painful past:

‘I don’t believe so. I think being molested as a child had more to do with that. But as a sex worker I had power+$$$’

‘I have way more PTSD from rape. That’s real. Sex work was just a good way to make money. At least for me then.’

So you have it, fearless Cho was raped when she was a child and then became a whore? She actually talked about it 2 months ago in Billboard magazine, ‘I was raped continuously through my teenage years, and I didn’t know how to stop it.’ So she wrote a song about it… ‘I Want to Kill My Rapist’, which is featured on her new album. ‘I’m a victim and now a survivor of sexual abuse and rape, and I think it’s really hard to talk about it,’ she says later in the conversation. ‘I think having a song to perform live will allow others to talk about it. It’s a huge issue, and this was cathartic for me.’

Since, she has repeated her support to sex workers: ‘Sex work is public service. The more wads shot, the fewer guns are shot. We keep male aggression at bay and we deserve a fucking medal.’ And If you read the whole interview, you will see that Margaret went through a LOT of awful horrible shit, ‘But all I have is ownership of my own suffering,’ she says at one point. She is truly a badass survivor.
