So is there any statistical backing to notion of redheads being as crazy as a shiathouse rat? There are some reds in my family, including my mom and some of her sisters, and they're definitely data points supporting the theory.

Self-fulfilling prophecy, really. If two people act the same way, and one of them is a redhead, observers remember the red hair and attribute the crazy to the hair.

A blonde who acts crazy is perceived as stupid. A brunette who acts crazy is perceived as "biatchy." A redhead who acts crazy is perceived as ... well... crazy.

For Halloween this year I went as Misty from pokemon (complete with temporary red hair) and I was amazed at the different reactions I got from people. Nobody told me I had no soul, but some girl threw up on my shoes. I figure had I been a brunette it wouldn't have happened.

Good theory. That makes sense.

I never heard the red head stereotypes. I just know they're hot.

What does it say about me that the redhead I dated for 2 years did more to damage me psychologically than anything short of being in a Columbian prison but I still lust after redheads?

What the hell do I have then? The psycho ex that did psychological damage to me was a brunette who forced 17-21 year old me into MFFs with redheads. That was her redeeming quality, otherwise she was shiathouse rat crazy.

They were fun at the time. The psychotic screams of "you paid more attention to her" afterward made them regrettable afterward.

It didn't take much forcing.

mr lawson: first girlfriend was a redhead..farked me up for life


My first girlfriend was phillipino.

I....strongly suspect that it wasn't her fault in the slightest actually.

It being me, and my damage, since that looks incredibly racist.

Though I also suspect it left me with more of a desire for 'not typical' girls (in many ways) than I would have had anyway. Blondes are boring, as are stereotypical women. Give me a girl who will fight with me on things and not condescend me, or put up with much bullshiat but still let me be romantic every now and then.

And probably someone to make me more silly and not take myself so seriously.

Bored at work and figure this thread will fade quick, ergo the random shtuff.

Good to know... I don't generally get all "When is she legal?!" on actresses, but redheads make me stupid.

I had a redhead girlfriend once. she was trouble. but, I got introduced to a lot of illicit substances and activities at a very young age and got to visit a mental hospital with her parents.

/ wow, although I don't feel like going deeply into the past on a fark redhead thread, I just realized that I dealt with much more serious shiat as a teenager than I have ever dealt with as an adult.
 
2012-01-18 04:57:58 PM
The one redhead I dated was probably the sanest, most balanced woman I ever went out with. This includes my wife, who is a dark blond/light brunette and six shades of crazy.
