On Being Different

On Being Different
I am unique. And not in the “I’m a Millennial, look at me!” way. Instead, I am statistically unique: 2 Percent: I have the rarest hair color in the world: red. 1 Percent: Even rarer, I have the rarest hair/eye combination in the world: red/blue. 1 Percent: I have the rarest personality type in the...

Christina Aguilera Is Now a Redhead

Christina Aguilera Is Now a Redhead
I would never consider Christina Aguilera a style icon. She’s always too much: too much makeup, too revealing of clothes, hair too blonde for her coloring. And as you know if you’ve been reading this blog for a while, I DESPISE fake redheads. Specifically the ones who love to talk about how feisty they are... Read more »

Redhead Days Festival Carrot Cake Competition

Redhead Days Festival Carrot Cake Competition
This weekend, a dream I never even knew I had came true: I judged a carrot cake contest at Redhead Days in Highwood, IL. I gave myself permission to ignore my doctor’s advice and my (mild) dairy & egg allergies in order to participate, because I couldn’t let a few rashes and my throat closing... Read more »

Who's your redheaded celebrity look alike?

Who's your redheaded celebrity look alike?
Remember Celebrity Doppelgänger Day on Facebook a couple of years ago? Everyone posted pictures of the celebrities they looked the most like as their Facebook profiles, and their e-friends either called them out for being narcissistic or obliviously commented on how great they looked. Me? All I could think to do was post a picture... Read more »

No Gingers at Grammys

No Gingers at Grammys
Why are there no gingers in music? Florence Welch….who is bottled. Meghan Trainor just dyed her hair red. Who else? We have Isla Fischer, Amy Adams, Julianne Moore, Jessica Chastain, Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman (formerly), Lindsey Lohan (formerly), etc. etc. Why aren’t redheads musically talented? Is this a strange part of our MC1R mutation? Oh... Read more »

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 »

Nicole Kidman Back to Red

Nicole Kidman Back to Red
Nicole Kidman has finally decided to go back to red for a Jimmy Choo ad. Hallelujah! I swear actresses lose any sense of self they had once they go blonde (and they always go blonde from being red): see Lindsay Lohan. However, I will admit it only recently dawned on me that maybe they didn’t... Read more »

Ginger Pro-Phile: Adam Lambert

Ginger Pro-Phile: Adam Lambert
HOLY SHIT! My friend N. just BLEW MY MIND. ADAM LAMBERT/GLAMBERT IS A GINGER!!! AND NOT EVEN THE DAYWALKER KIND. How did I not spot one of my own? I did feel something eerily familiar when I looked into his hauntingly blue eyes on the TV screen, and I did wonder how someone with his... Read more »

The Redhead Version of "It Gets Better"

The Redhead Version of "It Gets Better"
The fairy-model Lily Cole claimed redism — or making fun of redheads — is as bad as racism! I joke about that a lot on this blog, and I, like most redheads, was made fun of growing up for having red hair. The worst of it for me, was being called “Firecrotch” as early as... Read more »

Redhead RoundUp - Yeehaw!

Redhead RoundUp - Yeehaw!
Happy Friday Ginger-Philes! Between a ginger spawn of a mom in blackface with blonde hair and even more celebrities dying their hair red as a publicity stunt (yawn), this has been a week chockful of news almost as disgusting as daywalkers: 1. Some Mexican redhead is in a boxing fight. I would know more about... 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.
