Beyonce Super Bowl Controversy

Beyonce Super Bowl Controversy
Do you ever stick your foot in your mouth? I did, on Super Bowl Sunday. You know how most girls respond to compliments by degrading themselves? Like when someone says they look great, and they respond that they don’t, but if only they had a thigh gap, then the compliment would actually be valid. Yeah,... Read more »

New Ginger Barbie Sucks

New Ginger Barbie Sucks
So Barbie introduced newly sized dolls. Big woop de doo. They still fit into defined categorizations of which most women are undefinable. For me, I wonder, do I feel a kindred spirit most with the one with curly red hair, even though she’s tall and a daywalker? Do I relate to the curvy one because... Read more »

Redhead Days Chicago Review

Redhead Days Chicago Review
Redhead Days Chicago, the first incarnation, took place this weekend. Redhead Days Chicago is a misnomer, because the event actually takes place in Highwood, IL. Despite it being a suburb, those of us who deal with the commute know that in the same amount of time we could get to Highwood, we could also fly... Read more »

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 »

    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.
