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 this since my boyfriend watches these fights but he stopped inviting me to watch them with him and his friends.

2. Trend alert that red hair is "in". Uh, they say this every season since it's about the only truly unique hair color without going off the "natural" hair color palette.

3. Miley Cyrus dyed her hair "red".

4. Christina Hendricks celebrated her 37th birthday.

5. Like Miley Cyrus, Brittany Snow dyed her hair ginger.

6. Somehow, this woman whose skin looks like "beef jerky" and hair is platinum blonde spawned a ginger child. Then she may or may not have taken her tanning in a salon. Considering the child is not oozing blisters, I'd bet 90 bucks the mother is innocent. I just hope she realizes no matter how old the kid gets, tanning will make her look like a disgusting daywalker. But platinum blondes never understand that tanning looks bad on redheads. Who else has been annoyed by the phrase only the olive-skinned use, "Everyone looks better with a tan."

7. Scarlett Johansson is talking about what its like to be a redhead. She was cast in this little Joss Whedon movie known as The Avengers. As if dumping a bottle on your head gives you the right and knowledge and sister/brotherhood to talk like one whose faced the tragedy of having red hair their entire life. As this article says, "It's like they left her head out in the rain to rust or something."

8. Some actress nobody knows gets attention for having REAL red hair. FOR ONCE!

9. The Bleacher Report listed the hottest redheads in sports. I'm pretty sure the writer is color-blind because most the women are brunettes.

10. Hairpin posted the best songs about redheads. Surprised they didn't included Bruce Springsteen's, "Man you ain't lived til you've had your tires rotated by a redheadhead woman."

11. January Jones is embarrassed by her baby because he's ginger.

12. The International Herald Tribune references Springsteen's "Red Headed Woman", emphasizing the power of red. Oh and Sylvia Plath. How depressing.

  • Hello - this question isn't related to your topic:( but i want your help:) i came across this site yesterday and being and 18 year old ginger guy it had an effect.. i find that generally having red hair helps as i find it easy getting girls and getting noticed when going out. however, i do have insecurities that come and go about it. spesifically i hate it when i read on the web that 'gingers don't have souls'. so basically i would really like to know if this is all a well intened joke or if it is almost like a hate site? because i attack myself about these kinds of things often. so yea just wanted to know your oppinion on the sites intention and the whole soul thing. thanks:)

    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.
