"I won't pretend to understand the Brits' semi-serious disdain for gingers (a word that has seeped into American English, possibly thanks to Ginger Spice"

Yeah. That's where Americans got the term.

From what footage I've seen, I'm pretty sure the heroine in the movie is a Daywalker, not a Ginger.

I live in the the American South, where redheads are rare enough to almost be exotic. If you asspickles can't be bothered with gingers, SEND THEM ALL TO ME.

You'll get no sleep with a redhead!

Being a redhead girl is probably awesome. Being a red haired guy like me is significantly less awesome.

If it makes you feel better, there's currently a high demand for red-headed NFL quarterbacks.

I used to like redheads until every AW in the world started dying their hair some horrible obviously fake red color to get more attention.

/still like the natural redheads, but they seem to be few and far between.
//I'm also sure half of the "hot" so-called redheads posted later on in this thread will be fakes.

If you were already having passionate arguments you didn't start, adding kids to the mix would have likely just amplified that. And would have been paired with less sex. And you would have been pulled out of "party boy" mode before you were ready. You probably dodged a bullet.

I thought it was because historically virtually everyone in Scotland was a redhead? Oh wait, then we can't cue faux outrage can we.
 
2012-06-21 04:31:14 AM  
So she says it's a Brit "semi serious disdain for gingers", but does it not occur overseas as well? Didn't we export it properly? Did it only start in America after the South Park episode highlighted that gingers have no souls?

Also I don't believe that the ginger-hate comes from any historical time, I think ginger kids just look weird and get picked on as a result.

No, I have a stupid auto filler on this damn thing and I'm in the habit of not proof reading anything without a jagged red line under it. Although why men came out as kne I have no damn idea.

I had never heard of the term used until South Park. I knew there was a Ginger spice but I made no connection with her name and the color of her hair, but I see that now that I know the term.

It was one of the few smart decisions I made in my 20s. As the date grew near, the more I sat motionlessly and thought about our future, particularly her love of kids. What kind of asshole would I be if I lied and told her that I loved the idea? I'm now well in my 30s and still don't want children. I don't want to kick random kids on the street or use them as cheap labor; just don't want one of my own in the same way I hate my Verizon contract. Maybe I just hate diapers, I dunno.

You can always part ways with a spouse. You can't cleanly part ways with a child. I can't handle that.

The good news is that we're still great email friends. We live in different time zones and make playful threats to visit one another for a great night of teh sexy-time replayed in various ancient hotel rooms canopied by maple trees and mint juleps, but we're really just two folks who took different paths at the fork in the road. She has a baby girl now, and is happy.

That's what matters.

But godDAMN do I miss farking her. Sorry, it's tough to be a gentleman when talking about real redheads. Bonus: She was supermodel tall with that alabaster skin. Some sort of vision to behold. Slept like an angel.

So back to the article..

Instead of heralding the fact that a children's movie has a strong female lead who takes matters into her own hands, and refuses to be forced into marriage because of convention, this writer bemoans the stereotype of "the fiery redhead."

I think there are far worse things in movies to get upset about.

I've been sitting here trying to analyze the irritation that I feel when I read articles like this. It's really harmless - why does it annoy me?
I think, at the heart of it, it is envy.
I wish my life was so free of real, pressing, immediate problems that I had time, energy, and inclination to write articles like that, and to be bothered by matters of that magnitude.
That lady must have one nice life.
 
2012-06-21 06:44:58 AM  
While there's more than a grain of truth to the stereotype of fieriness when it comes to redheads, it's also true that there's more than even money on there being a certain amount of mental imbalance to go with that fieriness. Been married to a redhead for almost 20 years now. As for the Brits' disdain for "gingers", it's only because they are almost certainly Irish.
