If you are a redhead, you see yourself as a redhead

If you are a redhead, you see yourself as a redhead

I learned this from the girl studying next to me at Overflow Coffee. Some guy from Yale came up with this amazingly brilliant insight. He also said, according to the girl, if you are black, you see yourself as black. If you are a woman, you see yourself as a woman. The girl’s friend, who was writing in her journal, upon hearing this, said “Wow, that’s really powerful.” I find it powerful that being ginger is in the same category as race and gender.

But personally, I really see myself as a blonde. How do you see yourself?

    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.
