On Being a Redhead in Norway

On Being a Redhead in Norway
In case you haven’t been stalking me (cough Jack cough cough), I just returned from the land of the Vikings — Norway. Now I used to believe that this is where us redheads came from, but apparently new studies have proved this false. My experience on being a redhead in Norway (as compared to Israel,... Read more »

Louis Vuitton Exploits Gingers for Good

As I was flipping through The Wall Street Journal Magazine (pretend I didn’t just say that), I saw a Louis Vuitton ad that shocked me. Not only did was a ginger modeling what’s considered an elite brand, but also she was half naked. Among a blonde, a brunette and an Asian, she was the one... Read more »

Why Set Ups Always Go Wrong when you're a Redhead

Why Set Ups Always Go Wrong when you're a Redhead
Every time a friend has ever tried to set me up with someone, it’s gone wrong. Every set up attempt has followed a specific pattern, and I am 90 percent sure of the primary reason for failure: they always try to set me up with a redhead. There are 3 types of people available for... Read more »

"Don't Trust the B in Apt 23" Redism

"Don't Trust the B in Apt 23" Redism
This show is seriously amazing, partially because it’s so relevant. I had a roommate who seemed like the most normal person I interviewed but who I’m pretty sure was intentionally trying to kick me out of the apartment by doing things like having parties without warning me. However, the show is irritatingly typical in that... Read more »

Redhead Roundup: Yeehaw!

Redhead Roundup: Yeehaw!
Welcome to the third installment of The Ginger Philes Redhead Roundup! Gingers were cray this week but that’s not new news is it? Let’s take a look: 1. The Washington Post did a ridiculous article about some idiot who thinks she has a “thing” for gingers. She’s quoted as saying, “I have a thing for... Read more »

Latinos & Redheads & PB&Js

Latinos & Redheads & PB&Js
Ok, this is totally stereotypical. However, it seems every Mexican/other Latino I’ve ever known has been obsessed with redheads. The other day, this manifested itself when for the first time, and LatinA (so female, NOT male), approached me and said, “I love your hair. It’s so pretty, and I am so jealous.” Of course I took...

CTA Workers & Gingers make the Perfect Couples

CTA Workers & Gingers make the Perfect Couples
Or so my futuristic self thinks. Yesterday, as I was humbly trying to get through the gates at the Roosevelt station, I felt someone talking to me from behind. I turned and looked at him and realized three things: 1. He said, “Beautiful hair,” to me. 2. He was wearing a lime green vest that... Read more »

Craiglist Creepers - Leprechaun Style

Craiglist Creepers - Leprechaun Style
On Sunday, I was miffed about not being offered free green beer on St. Patrick’s Day. If people tell me I look like a leprechaun, shouldn’t they give me a drink on the one day a year it’s OK to be told that, dammit? While trolling for the semi-regular Craiglist Creepers series, I found my... 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.
