Comedian and activist Margaret Cho's righteous comic rage finds its targets with pinpoint accuracy and is meant not only to entertain but also to champion the civil liberties and raise awareness for the social injustices that are her impassioned causes-among them freedom of expression; gay rights; racial discrimination; and capital punishment. It is this blend of comedy and fervor that awakens the devotion of her legions of fans and permeates this book-her vehement, principled, and resoundingly funny political platform to shake us loose of the politics of disillusionment and get us through the years ahead. I Have Chosen to Stay and Fightchronicles Cho's adventures and misadventures in political activism and lays out what's right in no uncertain terms.

I admire this author for her passion for justice, but it is certainly not a light read or as funny as I had hoped.

I love Margart Cho! The chapter/essay "Feminism is a feminist issue " is something EVERYONE should read!!

Cho's angst is too real to laugh with. But what she talks about, racism and misogyny, are such important issues.
