If you’re like me, everyone and their brother shared this Chicagoist article with you, as if though they were the first to discover.

Curly Haircut Salon Reviews Chicago

Curly Haircut Salon Reviews Chicago
In addition to being a ginger supremacist, I am also a curly hair supremacist. For some reason, it also seems that many redheads have curly hair. Whenever someone sees me with straight hair and gives me the backhanded compliment, “You look so much better with straight hair,” a little piece of me dies inside.

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.

    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.
