Despite "The Hunger Games" being a mediocre book/movie at best, not to mention ripped off "Battle Royale", I see some serious inaccuracies in both forms of the story. Suzanne Collins proves to be redist and portrays gingers stereotypically.
First, there's Foxface. Foxface is unusually clever. Oddly, the actress cast in the movie does not have a face that looks like a fox at all but does have red hair. What's up with that? If "Foxface" immediately conjures an image of a round-faced redhead, then I'm offended. Also, is there even any significance to Katniss nicknaming the girl from District 7 (6?) as Foxface? Except maybe, because foxes are clever?
Second, the Avox girl from District 1. She's in the book and not in the movie. I get that she's portrayed as a positive character but she's still a traitor. With her tongue cut out. Only redheads can be portrayed this rebelliously, it seems.
Third, Katniss. Does she not have the typical spirit of a ginger? She reminds me of Anne of Green Gables in many a'way. Not to mention, wouldn't a redhead be most likely to win anyway? With our soulless capacity to kill and our fierceness and our cunning?
Anyway, I hate that media tends to portray redheads in this way. Remember Victoria from Twilight? Ron Weasley from Harry Potter? Pretty much any other redhead in a movie/book you can think of?
I promise you my copper locks you'll find rampant redism in the nearly all mainstream media.
Should we start a protest?
