Daywalker Discrimination

Daywalker Discrimination
Ariel looking high as a kite at Disney World, 2009

Today I learned I'm just as bad as the redists. I discriminate against a marginalized group -- aka the daywalkers.


See the commentary and response from the Ariel/Daywalker episode below:

  • redmoon said 6 hours, 39 minutes agoHey! Even us daywalkers are still redheads. I might not have freckles and maybe I'm not pale, but I still am a redhead. I still was made fun of growing up, there was no "exception clause" bestowed on me to the insults I got (and still comments even in a facetious manner are made to date as an adult) So go easy on Ariel--well if you could tell she was fake with dyed hair or a wig then F-ck her.
    Just because Halle Berry isn't as black as Dotcom from the show 30 Rock, doesn't mean she is somehow less African-American. It's hard enough being looked as different from the rest of society, let alone fellow gingers, so lighten up on your "day-walker" brothers and sisters.


  • thegingerphiles said 6 hours, 34 minutes agoWait, let me get this straight. So you're saying...daywalkers are people too? But redheaded mutants have to lack melanin, so how can you possibly spend time in the sun without getting burnt? Scientifically, it doesn't make sense. Therefore, you must be an aliem...

    No pale skin? No freckles? You were ONLY made fun of for being a redhead? Sounds like an easier life to me.


    Thoughts? Do daywalkers at least deserve the lowly status of gingers or are they already a step above? I'd say a step above, obviously.

    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.
