Ginger Pro-Philes: Zach Zaidman, "The Ginger Genius"

Ginger Pro-Philes: Zach Zaidman, "The Ginger Genius"
Thanks to commenter, Jack, I’m now aware of Chicago’s own ginger sports reporting hero, Zach Zaidman. I don’t like the Bears, so I don’t care too much, but since he’s a reporter and a ginger and in Chicago, I feel obligated to post about him. The first thing that popped up when I Googled ZZ...

Redhead Roundup - Yeehaw! And a rant about redheaded cowgirl stereotypes

Redhead Roundup - Yeehaw! And a rant about redheaded cowgirl stereotypes
It’s about time again for yet another redhead roundup. Did you know someone once told me they thought I looked like a country music girl? And that a girl who lived in a dorm dressed up as a cowgirl and all the men drooled over how great her hair looked under a cowboy hat? I’m... Read more »

Why "The Hunger Games" Discriminates against Redheads

Why "The Hunger Games" Discriminates against Redheads
Avoxes. Suzanne Collins says they are mute and redheaded. According to stereotypes, this may seem like an oxymoron. However, once you get past this point and realize some redheads are portrayed as shy or mute (see Charlie Brown’s Little Redheaded Girl in the Corner, who is never shown or heard), note that the Avoxes are...

3 Reasons Prince Harry's Nudity Scandal is Scandalous other than Actual Nudity

Gingers are allergic to everything

Gingers are allergic to everything
Gingers are like having Negative Type O blood. They can save everyone but no one can save them. That’s what the anesthesiologist told me when I had surgery last week. I rattled off a list of the antibiotics I’m allergic to — there are at least three — and she said, “Oh, that’s because you’re... 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.
