The Redheaded Stepchild

The Redheaded Stepchild

The other day, a fake redheaded daywalker said, "You know, we're like the redheaded stepchild, and since I'm a redhead y'know, I know what that's all about."

If she really knew what that's all about, she would've realized that I, the only true redhead in the room, was about to go all ginja on her for having the cajones to use that evil phrase in my presence.

  • This got me looking into the source of the term; one indication is here.

    I suppose that you have already looked into the genetic basis for the term, but I suppose that Donald Sterling would have a different term for the same concept, which, essentially, seems to be Cinderella. Did you have evil stepsisters?

  • Interesting, never thought to look that up. Thanks for sharing.

    I actually am not a stepchild. My (brunette) parents somehow found in their heart of hearts a way to not divorce, despite having not one, but two ginger babies.

    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.
