Exotic Redheads: Offensive?

Exotic Redheads: Offensive?
Growing up outside of Milwaukee, in a town with mostly descendants of German immigrants and then later attending school with mostly Scandinavian descendants, I stood out with my red hair but not overly so. I shared my paleness and blue eyes with at least half of the population. My best friends always had blonde hair,... Read more »

Craigslist Creepers: Men Who Prefer Dyed Red Hair

Craigslist Creepers: Men Who Prefer Dyed Red Hair
I got a notification in my Google Alerts for redheads for this Craiglist ad. Apparently, the man prefers dyed redheads over natural redheads. Isn’t that odd? Anyone else heard of this?

Ginger Phile No. 29

Ginger Phile No. 29
Last spring/summer, I dated a man who seemed to think I was the one. I was skeptical of his advances but agreed that something about us together just seemed right. We felt really comfortable with each other. He was sweet and nerdy and cute but not too nerdy. We laughed at the same things. We... Read more »

Redheads Dating Other Redheads

Redheads Dating Other Redheads
Apparently fear of a ginger’s wrath is real, because the guy I was seeing (not ginger) … broke up with me. Via text message. He always teased me for being a vampire, but I think his jokes were a crutch for his fear of my fangs. And he was right to be afraid. Very afraid.... Read more »

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 »

Ginger Love

There’s something about gingers that make other people want to hook us up. “OMG, you have red hair; I know the perfect person for you!” people have said within the first three seconds of meeting me. Usually said “perfect person” is not even a true ginger: either a strawberry blonde or one of those weird... Read more »

Why do homeless men love redheads?

In the spirit of making this blog completely un-PC, here’s my rant on homeless men: Why do they love red hair so much? Is there something psychedelic about it when they’re strung out or malnourished? Is it because it’s unique and they feel they can relate? Is it because we are both considered part 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.

      The stereotype for redhead guys is much different. Nerdy, weak, moody, argumentative. I hate it. I am it.
