Added DiffLines:

* AsianDrivers: Subverted. During one performance where she was sharing the bill with several other comics, she had to sit through act after act with some variation on the "bad Asian driver" joke. When she was finally up, she opened with, "So, I'm actually a pretty good driver."

HUGE gay following. We're talkin' second Creator/JudyGarland here. It helps that Cho has been quite open about her love for gays for her entire career.

* FluffyFashionFeathers: Inspired by Music/{{Cher}} and Music/{{Bjork}}, Margaret once wore an outlandish peacock dress to the Grammy Awards. While she didn't win the Grammy she was up for, she ''was'' named Worst Dressed by various {{fashion magazine}}s. This was met with cheers, since it came after a rant on how everybody at award shows dress the same, and the ones named Worst Dressed are really the best since they created their own look.

* NWordPrivileges: Large debate as to whether or not she has these when she pokes fun at Asian and/or LGBT culture. One's view on the debate often makes the difference between loving her and hating her. The biggest issue with this is that despite being an advocate on Asians not being type-cast and for gay rights and equality, the majority of her Asian jokes rely on the concept of [[FunnyForeigner Funny Foreigners]], most of the gay men she jokes about are CampGay, and most the lesbians she jokes about are [[ButchLesbian Butch Lesbians]].

** As a rape victim herself she felt she was allowed to make jokes about being molested and raped ... at a Rape Victim Benefit. She shares how although ''she'' thinks she should be allowed to make those kinds of jokes, the audience of the benefit [[DudeNotFunny most certainly did not]].
