On This Redhead Dating Site, Thing

Because I’m a redhead and obsessed with all things that involve my people, I stumbled upon this article.

The title was “Gingers Get Own Dating Site” which told me two things: 1) That’s racist and 2) This is a British thing.

Sure enough, a site devoted to matching “gingers” with other well suited “Top Carrots,” or whatever.

According to the article…

IT manager Sam Heakin, 22, who created the site, thinks it could help high profile redheads like Prince Harry, 27, and singers Ed Sheeran, 21, Geri Halliwell, 39, and Nicola Roberts, 26, find true love. Sam said: “I have noticed a trend in people seeking redheads in dating columns. As a redhead-lover myself, I want to make it my mission to help lonely gingers and ginger seekers find a that special someone. I will definitely find them true love.”

Something tells me that Prince Harry doesn’t need help finding love—and Geri Halliwell isn’t a natural redhead, FYI— but it would be nice to see them end up with other…gingers, to use their offensive language.

What do you think about redheads dating each other?

Redheads. We’re Being Exterminated.

As if we weren’t going extinct fast enough…

The world’s largest sperm bank has started turning down redhead donors because there’s a “lack of demand” for us.

The director of the sperm bank was quoted as saying:

I do not think you chose a redhead, unless the partner–for example, the sterile male–has red hair, or because the lone woman has a preference for redheads. And that’s perhaps not so many, especially in the latter case.

Excuse me? I am a redhead and a woman. But this pissed me off. Mostly because what he’s saying is partially true.

There has been real and open hatred of redheaded males in the media. Not just in calling them “gingers” but also in relegating redhead males to the role of comic relief (i.e. Ron Weasley in Harry Potter), rather than leading man.

By not showing redhead men in a positive light, it tells the world that they are unworthy, or undesirable. The same way that women who watch too many commercials often feel pressured to diet and work out, as a result of all the advertisements to lose weight.

When is the last time you saw a redhead male in a leading, romantic role? I honestly can’t think of one.

I’d just like to point out a few examples of hot redhead men- if not for my own sanity, then for that of some of the redhead males in my life. My brother, for example, and one of my best friends, Tommy.

Appreciate redheaded men while you can, trust me when I say that you’ll miss them!
