What Labor Day Means for Redheads

What Labor Day Means for Redheads
Gingers, rejoice! Summer is over, and soon you’ll be able to go outside again without turning into a fireball. Ginger parents, be very afraid! A new school year could mean new bullying for your ginger. Consider homeschooling them, especially if they are male, or simply dying their hair blonde and eyebrows black. Also please consider...

Casting Call for Redheads

Well apparently the Hollywood people lump redheads in with twins and little people; I guess they think we’re all freakshows. That’s because “Chicago PD”, a runoff of “Chicago Fire” put out a casting call for extras and mentioned that they’re specifically looking for us. I can only imagine the plotlines. If you’re interested, the details... Read more »

Red is the New Black

Red is the New Black
Contrary to popular belief, the largest concentration of redheads does not exist in Ireland, but actually in Scotland. I know they’re pretty much the same place but tell that to one of them and they will go all fiesty ginger on you, even the non-ginger ones. Since ginger is the new n-word, a bunch of... Read more »

Gingers Finally Rally to Protest Redism

Gingers Finally Rally to Protest Redism
Redheads plan to demonstrate against gingerism in the most appropriate location, Scotland, next month on August 10. Numbers are expected to be in the hundreds. Apparently it’s a PR ploy by Canadian ginger comedian Shawn Hitchins. Yet, Scots aren’t treating the Ginger Pride Walk like a joke. I just wonder if there’ll be as many... Read more »

Happy International Kiss a Ginger Day!

Happy International Kiss a Ginger Day!
No, it’s not St. Patty’s Day yet. It’s Kiss a Ginger Day! Not to be confused with Kick a Ginger Day. Have you been kissed/kissing redheads today?

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 »

Boston Fails to Set Guinness World Record; Can Chicago do it?

Boston Fails to Set Guinness World Record; Can Chicago do it?
Boston attempted to gather the most redheads in one place at Irish Fest to set a Guinness World Record.   Based on my Twitter interactions and naked eye on the street, I’m noticing lots of redheads exist in Chicago. It’s a bigger city than Boston and there’s a sizable Irish population (though, don’t get me... Read more »

Hug a Ginga Day - New Zealand

Hug a Ginga Day - New Zealand
Man, I wish I lived in New Zealand. Besides it being the land Frodo travelled through to destroy the ring (and what a beautiful land that is!), there is a petition, via local radio station “ The Edge”, for “Hug a Ginga Day” on May 25, that not only requests warm, bodily touches but also a...

    thegingerphiles

    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.
