KiplingKat872: O.K., #4 maybe real. But I think Tat'dGreaser:'s point is made.

It's the idea of the thing, not the real thing that *most* men want.

But I have encountered some real red-head connoisseurs, usually men in their 40's and 50's looking for a exciting ride, and mature/mellow enough to handle it.


I'm definitely looking for the real thing. I've been a fan for 25+ years and have never managed to make it happen. I was friends with a lovely redhead in college but it didn't work out, and I've not found myself with an opportunity since then. But with recent changes in my life, by golly I'm ready to go out on a limb and not be passive about it anymore. How YOU doin?

KiplingKat872: I never said you should stop, though that, and the fact you got so defensive over it...

In any case, all I am saying, which many people seem to take as some sort of personal attack, is that it irks me and its not the same as being the real deal. And long screeds are not going to change that.

BTW, my best friend in High School had mousy brown hair. She got it styled nicely and looked awesome. She didn't feel the need to change the colour.


I posted one comment, I admit I tend to ramble, but it seems a bit much to me to describe it as "so defensive". Honestly I've dyed my hair shades of blonde and brown, I just happen to like the red shades best.

I agreed bottle-red is not the same as the real deal. It doesn't look the same, eyebrows, lashes, skin tone, even eye colour wont match the way it does for a real redhead. But then bottle-blonde, bottle-brunette or any other colour that alters a natural one is never going to be as good as the genuine thing. Maybe you should really pity us copiers for not ever being able to have what you have naturally. No matter how many bottle reds you are ever surrounded by, you are still going to stand out by being the real deal.

It does seem an odd thing to be irked by. I wouldn't get irked by anyone dying their hair mousey blonde, I'd be thrilled that my natural hair colour was suddenly considered desirable. But then everyone is different and everyone will have their own likes and dislikes. People will do things you don't approve of, people will do things I don't approve of, lots of people wont give a damn.

But go ahead and be irked all you like. I'd prefer to find reasons to not be irked, but that is just me. I've rambled again and you will probably just think I am now irate or something, which was not my intention.

SuperChuck: Redheads should never shave


Agreed. A red carpet is my holy grail.

hubiestubert: I like redheads. I like brunettes. I like blondes. Dated my fair share of Irish, and Italian, and French, and currently a gal who's Irish and Navaho. All women have their own mystique. Indian, Hindu, Jewish, Irish, Scottish, Japanese, Chinese, Cuban, and more. Guess what? Mostly, that "mystique" is just them, and what their families raised them up in, and what they had to overcome and what they excelled in.


They're all pink on the inside.

Slaxl: MickCollins: The English disdain for Gingers is pretty simple. Most Gingers are Scottish,Irish or Welsh. English people have traditionally treated those groups like shiat. Mocking them for being Gingers allows you to make fun of them and not be called a bigot.

I don't buy that at all. Firstly because as a kid no one taught anyone to pick on gingers, it just happened naturally, secondly because non gingers in Scotland and Wales also pick on gingers. The English disdain also happens in every other country. I don't believe the English dislike for earlier inhabitants on their land led to such a pervasive dislike that transcends time and place and has spread to every corner of the world.

They just look weird as kids, that's all. Some people grow out of it and accept them as people, some find that difference alluring and grow up to be redhead fetishists, and some people never grow up and keep bashing them.

katerbug72: My 18 month old son just pointed and laughed his butt off at that picture. I'm not sure how I should feel about that. Are those hot dogs or breadsticks?

I don't know to be honest, however see if your 18 month old son can prove or disprove my above hypothesis. Did he laugh because the ginger kid looked funny, or because he was hungry and liked the sight of food?


He definitely wasn't hungry. My kid and food don't have a great relationship. He also jumps when Conan jumps and laughs at his string dance. Maybe he thinks gingers are funny.

We're red heads, we're kinda like that. ;) This is just "irked," you should see me when I'm dealing with politics. Then I get to "enraged."

Pax.
