Did you know?

Did you know that redheads have more sex?1

Redheads are more sensitive to pain.2

And redheads need more anesthesia.3

 

There are a lot of myths about redheads. I guess that will happen with any specific grouping of people, right? We like to think in terms of groups, classification, stereotypes. I read that bees sting redheads more than other hair colors. I am not certain I believe this. Anyone know of a scientific study that supports this claim?

Red hair is a genetic mutation. A genetic mutation I am thankful for. And no, this picture is not of me but worth sharing all the same. Long live the redheads.

Another attempt to save the gingers

In lieu of my genetic need to see my species survive, I will continue to bring you different ways you can help save the redheads… watch this video from Stu Stone as he attempts to do a charity cause video for the benefit of all redheads…

Save the redheads!

Ok, I found the most delightful game yesterday!

GINGER DAWN

The premise of the game is to help keep the redhead gene from becoming extinct by populating the world with little ginger babies.

You, fearless redhead (man or woman), must work with what you got… sensitive skin, limited time and limited partners to produce a certain number of redhead babies each day before you meet your demise by the blazing sun (Oh, how true to life this ending is…). One little, two little, three little redheads…

I have made it to day 6 but not to 7 yet, yet! YET! I will get there, I mean we are a rather determined bunch (redheads), aren’t we?

And guess what? This wonderful game is fun and FREE! You can play Ginger Dawn here.

Redheads & Gingers: Myths and Facts

Friday, May 1st, 2009

We’ve all heard that blondes are dumb, brunettes are smart and dependable, and that curly-haired women are unhinged , but of all the hair stereotypes out there, no one suffers more injustice than redheads do.

This article was sent to me by a friend because well, I am a redhead. =) I have noticed we often get a bad rap. In movies redheads tend to be evil. They lie, cheat, connive and hurt others. They are selfish. They are often the villainous sexpots out to gain power or money. Or we are portrayed as hideous or ridiculous Ronald McDonald-esque freaks–smothered in freckles. Cartman from Southpark started a Hitler-like movement against “gingers” becausehe believes Gingers are “disgusting, inhuman, inherently dumb, have no souls, and are unable to survive in the sunlight. The second class of Gingers according to Cartman are the “day walkers” who have red hair but not pale skin or freckles.

Someone even declared a “National Kick a Ginger Day”. (Bring it on retards! I’ll show you the crimson wrath!)

Judas, the great betrayer of Jesus, was said to be a redhead…as was Mary. Literature is littered with references to our inherent evil nature.

What is true is we are unique, rare. We are the least common hair color and this makes us different. And it makes a lot of other people idiotic in their reactions to us. Studies have proven we are harder to sedate before surgery and are more likely to feel pain in general.

Redheads are often given nicknames, some are simple like red, carrot top and crimson, others are rude like tampon-top and fire crotch. People do not have so many nicknames for other hair colors.

Well, what do you call a redhead with an attitude? Normal. =) See, we are capable of laughing at ourselves but can’t we all just get along?
