Snippet from Book One of Heritage revamp

Not sure why, but this snippet always makes me smile:

Beth turned to Dryden with a tired smirk. “Q dropped by again this morning Number One.”

Dryden scowled. “We really are in for something aren’t we?” He looked to Griffin who was listening and Beth turned to assure he was included in the conversation.

“I have no doubt. He told me that we weren’t looking hard enough and I have to agree. He also told us to stay away from the Onias and Japori sectors because the ‘fate of the galaxy’ rested there.”

Dryden shifted in his stance. “That means that’s exactly where we’re heading.”

Beth smiled. “Although the Admiral wouldn’t confirm it, I know it to be the truth.”

“Do we always do the opposite of what Q asks?” Griffin inquired.

Beth smiled and looked to Dryden. They both turned to Griffin and simultaneously answered, “Yes.”

If you are a woman, if you’re a person of colour, if you are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, if you are a person of size, if you are a person of intelligence, if you are a person of integrity, then you are considered a minority in this world. …And it’s going to 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 ‘oh, 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 at the mall on some turn-around creme that doesn’t turn around 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 call yourself an American, 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.

— Margaret Cho
