Aello: I said _I've_ never gotten any rude or demeaning remarks about mine. I grew up in New Orleans and Baton Rouge in working class neighborhoods and that may be a reason why. But, I have heard stories of higher class women using lemon juice and milk to get rid of freckles.

Now that makes me wonder if you could convince a really dumb rich broad that a daily semen facial will fade her freckles, and how long she'd let you blast her in the face before figuring out the truth...

I am a highly freckled redhead and I wouldn't have it any other way. Although when I was a teen I used to dream that one day my freckles would meld together and I'd have a rockin' tan.

Tell you what. Send all your beautiful but freckled babes between 19 and 35 years old to me.  I shall take on the task of dealing with this most serious problem. Don't say I didn't do you any favors.

Most humans may be descended from apes, but redheads are descended from cats. Freckled redheads are descended from calico cats.

One day a grizzled lobsterman, still in hip waders, came toward me down the stone steps of King Ro Market, our village's general store, which kept an enormous block of hard cheese on the counter, to be sold by the slice, as well as motor oil, Wonder Bread, and my objective whenever I escaped the carob and kale of my childhood home: Swedish fish and other penny candy.

Did freckles write that sentence?

I'm heavily freckled, less so on my face. Auburn hair. Blue eyes. I like my freckles.

However I've also had similar experiences, they just never really bothered me too much. I never tried to cover up my freckles. I have one on my lip that I'd rather not have (darker spot when I apply lip gloss) but that's not really a big whoop.

I have had people be extraordinarily nasty about it though, including one college professor I literally got into an argument with. His daughter had freckles, he talked in class about the genetic lottery of freckles...and how AWFUL and UGLY freckles I was in the front row. My arms are fully covered with freckles, and I pushed back my sleeves (was winter, I don't hide them :P) to make sure he saw mine. Then confronted him after class about it. It culminated with him demanding (yelling in my face no less) what he should tell his 8 year old daughter when she sobs about how ugly she is.

I told him he should tell her she's got a shiatty father. (I really did). Among other things. Only F that remains on my academic record (I attempted to withdraw but apparently was too late, he was the only one who taught that specific course, blah blah blah. Never has hurt me either, since the rest are all pretty much As, and then once you enter the real world no one gives a shiat what your scores were. Ever.)

That was by far the nastiest. But there were many such incidences. I can easily recall many, most when I was a child. Fortunately I was a mouthy, know-it-all, Irish brat, so truly it didn't bother me. I liked 'em. My dad is also covered in them, as is one of my brothers.

I also didn't mind the comparisons to Pippi Longstocking (she was cool) but the Annie stuff...well that I did truly hate. ;)

Anyhoo long post shortened, while it didn't bother me as it did the woman in the article, you've really no idea how farking rude and shiatty people can be about it. And how often ADULTS thought it was okay to either make nasty comments, or (and this actually would piss me off) attempt to REASSURE me about my freckles. /rolls eyes

It does seem to trigger 'ew diseased!' reactions in some. I did have a friend confess to me she thought they were creepy the way my arms were covered in spots. They are on my face too, just very faint because I sunblock (for cancer prevention since I'm very very pale, not freckle prevention).

Oh and I also have no soul, but you guys knew that about us right? ;)

I saw carrot top in vegas last year...I really wanted to hate him. I really liked the show, though. He was a bloody farking riot.

I don't hate carrot top, but he can't speak in this thread, and regardless of how funny he is, he's not exactly what I'm looking for in a hot freckle thread.
