    … I honestly had no idea that “gingerism” even existed. My girlfriend’s a ginger, and I think she’s gorgeous.

    I want to quote your post in my blog. It can?
    And you et an account on Twitter?

    thank MAUD that’s about the only “ism” that hasn’t taken root in the states. i get nothing but compliments about my hair and have never been teased about that. many MANY other things, yes, but my hair color/complexion, no.

    I often hear gingerist statements used knowingly to make fun of other prejudices such as skin colour – because (outside the UK only, perhaps?) it’s sounds as irrational as – well, as small earlobes. When Australia elected its first female PM (a redhead), I really enjoyed that people were able to deal with her policies rather than her femaleness, and part of the way they did this was jokingly focussing on the importance of her bring the first ginger PM, rather than female.

    My mind boggles that this is even a THING.
    Like… Japan I could understand bullying on that front (understand meaning I see where they’re coming from), being virtually uniform in hair color.
    But in Britain and Australia? Really? Failure.

    lol the first boy I ever had a crush on was a ginger. :P Gingers are adorable.

    I think redheads are the hottest of all women. But I don’t discriminate too much. :)

    Oops – should’ve saved my rant for this ep. Sorry.

    This totally hpaepned to me in middle school in KY. To this day people sneer and snicker when they have the opportunity to use the phrase redheaded step-child in my presence. Yea. Real effing funny folks. And you wonder why redheads are charged with having raging tempers. Kind of explains the chip on my shoulder, eh?
