Is Downy redist?

I was flipping through an issue of Cosmo recently when I happened upon an ad of a red-headed orange and discussed combining citrus and ginger. I can’t display the image here but you can view it here¬†. Apparently, it’s an ad for Downy. What do you think, insensitive to gingers? Or is that what I... Read more »

Elevator Pitch

I am now terrified of turning a quarter-of-a-century old thanks not only to my imminent (and already existing) wrinkles but also to a woman I rode the elevator up with today. Her commentary started off fine and quite sweet, like much of my redheaded brethren have experienced I’m sure. “I just love your hair. It’s... Read more »

The Millionaire Matchmaker Hates Redheads Too, and She Has Good Reason

Among gays, smart women and Jewish women, Patti Stanger aka The Millionaire Matchmaker has also criticized redheaded women. Personally, I don’t see what the big deal is since she has been criticizing redheaded women on her show forever. I would like to prove to her that she can set up a redheaded woman and have...

Even Chelsea Handler Hates Redheads (But Loves Midgets)

There is a an entire chapter in Chelsea Handler’s book, “Are you there, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea,” about dating a ginger male. I have to say, even I’m offended by the midget-lover’s description of “Big Red” aka Austin. I have to say though, she did distinguish between redheaded males and redhead females saying, “For a...

What's a ginger's worst nightmare?

Her ex’s new/old girlfriend. Who is a ginger too! Way to make me feel like you liked me for me, and not your weird and obsessive fetish with firecrotches. Seriously, it’s almost like the guys who have a thing for Asian girls; they’re always nerdy and watching anime. Redhead lovers aren’t even subculture nerdy, they’re... Read more »

Googled Gingers Recap - Redheaded Goddess Forums

On May 8, I wrote: “So I just googled “Ginger Philes” because I am a stupid ginger and cannot figure out how to put my blog in my bookmarks. Below my creeptastic entries, I found this:¬†Redheaded Goddess Forums. Someone gave a shoutout to my blog! Yay, ginges are reading this! I am not really sure... Read more »

Answer to the Blonde

Jenna Myers Karvunidis of High Gloss and Sauce commented on my last entry about greying a few vital redhead questions. Instead of responding to her comment, I thought I’d create an entry to answer her individual questions, which I am sure every other non-ginger (and maybe even some daywalkers) are wondering: Q: Do redheads get...

    The Ginger Phile has had the unfortunate disposition of being a ginger since birth. She has tried various medications to cure her gingervitis, including therapies such as tantrum-throwing. Her efforts have been to no avail. Instead, she is trying to write it out, via this blog. Unfortunately, she doesn't think it will bear a soul for her. The Ginger Phile is from the exotic land of Wisconsin, where she had daily inner turmoil over whether she was a ginger or a daywalker. So far, three of three votes say daywalker. She begs to differ, as someone recently told her they would want to be with her if they were biking at night because she is so pale.
