The Redhead Version of "It Gets Better"

The Redhead Version of "It Gets Better"
The fairy-model Lily Cole claimed redism — or making fun of redheads — is as bad as racism! I joke about that a lot on this blog, and I, like most redheads, was made fun of growing up for having red hair. The worst of it for me, was being called “Firecrotch” as early as... Read more »

Ginger Pro-Philes: Tilda Swinton

Ginger Pro-Philes: Tilda Swinton
Who is Tilda Swinton? She came out of nowhere it seems, yet she was always there. She first came to my attention as the creepy ice queen in The Chronicles of Narnia. Obviously, this is redist and particularly hurtful considering our lack of melanin. I feel I HAVE to appreciate her though — she has a... Read more »

Redhead Roundup-Yeehaw

Redhead Roundup-Yeehaw
In redheaded news this week:   Those with a rare birthmark covering 80% of the skin surface are more likely to have red hair.   Rihanna approves of the girl who got suspended for dying her hair “Rihanna Red”.   Are redheads more likely to be in tune with the paranormal? I’d be interested to... Read more »

The Coining of "Ginja"

The Coining of "Ginja"
Kind of like calling a redhead “blue”, calling a redhead a “ginga” is ironic. Cause it’s ghetto, and we’re usually not. In a high school variety show, I was picked to ironically pretend I was a big hip hop/rap/hood rat person because I was the palest/most innocent looking/whitest person available. My pale, skinny, redheaded brother... Read more »

What's Red, White and Blue ... that has nothing to do with the U.S. of A.?

What's Red, White and Blue ... that has nothing to do with the U.S. of A.?
Australian ginjas, that’s who, damnit! In Australia, “Blue” is a super ironic nickname for redheads. Those darn Australians, they sure get ya every time. I sent a request to Nicole Kidman to see if she was ever called Blue, but she didn’t respond. Typical ginger.  

Finally, a real redheaded princess

Finally, a real redheaded princess
Fuck Ariel. When I saw her at Disney World on my post-college graduation roadtrip, we could tell she was cracked out. Of course, me being the ginge, I was forced to get a personal picture with her (while the blonde and redhead I roadtripped with snapped pics with sweet and sober Cinderella and Belle, respectively.)...

Hug a Ginga Day - New Zealand

Hug a Ginga Day - New Zealand
Man, I wish I lived in New Zealand. Besides it being the land Frodo travelled through to destroy the ring (and what a beautiful land that is!), there is a petition, via local radio station “ The Edge”, for “Hug a Ginga Day” on May 25, that not only requests warm, bodily touches but also a...

Redhead RoundUp - Yeehaw!

Redhead RoundUp - Yeehaw!
Happy Friday Ginger-Philes! Between a ginger spawn of a mom in blackface with blonde hair and even more celebrities dying their hair red as a publicity stunt (yawn), this has been a week chockful of news almost as disgusting as daywalkers: 1. Some Mexican redhead is in a boxing fight. I would know more about... Read more »

Why Ginger Philes are Worse than Foot Fetishists

Why Ginger Philes are Worse than Foot Fetishists
Does anyone else find they have a terrible problem with dating, wherein it seems like guys only like you for your red hair? You know the kind, they have a creepy fetish akin to that of somebody who steals more than 100 women’s shoes from the university library (yes, this happened). For me, it seems... Read more »

    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.
