So a redhead walks into a bar...

And a male redhead shouts, “One in 10,000!” and high-fives here. “We need to stick together, us Irish redheads.” “I’m not Irish,” the female redhead says. He ignores her and compliments her on her “beautiful blue eyes.” At least he got that part right, unlike the many bar flies who assume she has green eyes.... Read more »

Big, Important Chart: Assessing Power Redheads

Big, Important Chart: Assessing Power Redheads
Even though 2012 was dubbed, “Year of the Redhead” (I wish a Zodiac calendar for that existed), 2013 is seeing some traction for our race…er, kind. (Is kind any better?) My friend J. posted the imagefrom the New York Times Magazine (I think) to my Facebook. And oh is it just full of potential for... Read more »

Daywalker Dating Debate

Daywalker Dating Debate
I have two dating rules: 1. Don’t date gingers. 2. Don’t date ginger philes. Who does this leave me with? Ginger haters. Therefore, following my own rules would leave me dying alone and celibate forever. So I usually end up with ginger philes. And I usually end up getting burned because they see me as... Read more »

Hit on Someone Your Own Size

Hit on Someone Your Own Size
What happens when you mix a ginger gal (me) with an S&M-esque studded Madonna bra (worn outside of a shirt)? A lot of genuine male interest, apparently. And I don’t think it’s because of any BDSM fantasies, unless they are hiding it well. Anyway, I, for once, had legitimate, soberish conversations with two males at... 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.
