Ginger Pro-Philes: Lily Cole

Ginger Pro-Philes: Lily Cole
If I’d only be allowed to have one ginger I’m jealous of, it’d have to be Lily Cole. Cole is essentially a fairy princess who somehow rocks the cover of Vogue despite seemingly jumping off the canvas of a pre-Raphaelite painting. (P.S. I don’t know exactly what I mean by pre-Raphaelite. BUT I think you... Read more »

A Furry 'Red' Hero

A Furry 'Red' Hero
If you’ve ever been to PAWS Chicago in the past two years, you’ve probably seen or met Red, PAWS unofficial mascot. Red, a somewhat ginger-haired dog, was shot and paralyzed when protecting his owner from robbers nearly three years ago. Red is the face of resilience. Incredibly sweet, gentle and friendly, he defies pitbull stereotypes.... Read more »

Latinos & Redheads & PB&Js

Latinos & Redheads & PB&Js
Ok, this is totally stereotypical. However, it seems every Mexican/other Latino I’ve ever known has been obsessed with redheads. The other day, this manifested itself when for the first time, and LatinA (so female, NOT male), approached me and said, “I love your hair. It’s so pretty, and I am so┬ájealous.” Of course I took...

Another D-List Celebrity Goes Ginge

Another D-List Celebrity Goes Ginge
No, I’m not referring to Kathy Griffin’s Life on the D-List. Dying hair red is seriously becoming a celebrity publicity stunt. All these D-listers I’ve never heard of dye their hair ginger, and suddenly they are being covered by the Daily Mail. This time, it’s someone named Tamsin Egerton. Can someone please enlighten me as... Read more »

A Dancing Ginger

Thumbnail image for 'A Dancing Ginger'
This kid dyes his hair red so he looks like a daywalker (black eyebrows), gets weird glares from strangers, and responds by dancing. “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,” he says. Amen.

Disney Gingers

I can’t believe this! I found this image on Pinterest of all the redheads in Disney movies! I had no idea it was so many! I’ve always complained that Ariel is the token redheaded Disney princess, and let’s face it, she’s a daywalker! Now I have so many more ideas for Halloween costumes…anyone want to... Read more »

    thegingerphiles

    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.
