Disney Redheads Multiplying

Disney Redheads Multiplying
If you’ve been reading this blog, you know that a vital issue in gingerism is our depiction in the media. Most movies and TV shows feature a blonde or brunette as the leading female, with the exception of certain films that require fierce character development (ie Jessica Chastain in “Zero Dark Thirty”). Media often portrays... Read more »

Harry Potter Ginger Love

Harry Potter Ginger Love
J.K. Rowling let the world know that she regrets putting Ron and Hermione together in the Harry Potter series and that Hermione and Harry should actually be together. She also admits that in real life, Hermione and Ron would need relationship counseling. To this I have to say: THAT’S REDIST! Can’t we give the kid... Read more »

So here are a few key words in the ginger lexicon important to the redhead diaspora: ginger: redhead.

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 »

Thumbnail image for 'Why You Shouldn't Mess With Redheads'
Buzzfeed created this insanely awesome video that had me going, “Why didn’t I think of doing that?” Here are a few of my favorite quotes from the video: “Do you have the rarest hair color in the world. Probably not!” “I guess we just don’t go down as easily as the rest of the world.”... 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 »

Big, Important Chart: Assessing Power Redheads
Even though 2012 was dubbed, “Year of the Redhead” (I wish a Zodiac calendar for that existed), 2013 is seeing some traction for our race…er, kind. (Is kind any better?)

    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.
