Bungles: The majority of blond men, and a significant chuck of brown haired men, have gingerish beards.

If you know a man you've never, ever seen with a little beard growth, even on holiday, you know why.

/the secret gingers.


Very very few blond men have blond facial hair, its usually either red or lt brown.

Ex-wife was a redhead. Have a drawer full of sex tapes with redheads. Currently dating a redhead. Apparently I like them.

Yeah my beard is like the redest natural shade of red and my mustache is like as red as it can be and still be considered strawberry blond instead of red red, but the hair on my head is like blond unless I get zero sun and then its like the blondest shade of strawberry.

Oldiron_79: As a daywalker male it surprises me how many women just wont date a red headed male


My mother is from Ireland and told me that when she was growing up in the 1960s red- haired men were considered bad luck. She has all the traditional superstitions, so it might actually be something going back hundreds or thousands of years (for whatever reason). In the Scottish Highlands there was no animus against red- headed men as far as I know but there was one instead against men with black hair and red beards, who were perceived as being aggressive and untrustworthy.

Interesting. I find it ironic that this superstition is from Ireland probably the most ginger country on the planet.

My wife is a redheaded half-Afghani sex fiend with a basement full of shotguns.
There are many people who are alive today because I remind her often that it is illegal to kill them.
And the sex is awesome.

I have no idea if there's any truth to this, but what I was told as a child is that red hair came from Scotland, so the Irish were particularly resentful of the increase in gingers in Ireland because it meant they were being overrun by Scots.

dopekitty74: I used to know kids whose dad was black and they had red hair. I'm guessing somewhere in his family line some ginger got mixed in. Those kids looked very unique. Super curly red hair, but darker complected than most whites.


At least one of the red head mutations is found on the gold cost area of Africa.  It would appear that a ginger took a massive trip a very long time ago.

A lot of this stuff has to do with folk memory and may not be totally scientifically accurate, but in general the population of Ireland and the island fringe of Scotland (which was colonized from Ireland, and called Gaels after their Hibernian cousins) tended to be represented by smaller dark- haired people, and this is somewhat borne out by the recent genetic map showing their common descent from the Basques and north/northwestern Iberians. By contrast in mainland Scotland there are a higher percentage of fair- and red- haired people who are taller than average, the kind of people who were described by the Micmac people as being like "trees" when they emigrated to Nova Scotia. In my own family we have had both strains, which in an informal way we call "Celtic" and "Pictish", running side by side for a couple of generations; I'm the Celtic type whereas my tall, redhead sister is Pictish, and my small daughters are each of one type, etc. Interestingly, the divide seems to be correlated with personality types as well.

I think the only place with such a high population of gingers besides scotland and ireland is probably atlantic canada, specifically Nova Scotia. Worked in New Minas for a couple of weeks in 2009, plenty of pasty and freckly redheaded folks there.

You'll be disappointed. The last trip to Ireland I took - I was the only ginger in attendance the entire trip. And the only one that liked Murphy's stout. As a friend of mine put it - you are Irish then most of Ireland.

It might be because their peckers look so angry.

It was a possibility, but luckily my little munchkin looks like something straight out of a Hitler Youth propaganda poster. And considering the rate at which he outgrows shoes, he could end up to be quite a strapping young man.

My wee leprechaun mother finds it in her freckled heart to love him anyway. :)

I've never dated a red- or blond- headed guy. Every dude I've farked has either had very dark brown hair or black hair. I just don't find blond hair on a dude attractive.

\no discrimination between curly or straight hair, though

I think you're right. My husband's head hair is black, but his beard is about 1/3 red.

I'm a weird sort of stealth ginger, well was until I started going bald recently. If I get a short haircut in the winter you would believe I'm a fairly dark brown. Till I let my hair get longer than about 3/4ths of an inch then it has a very very red tint to it. Longer than that and I range down to a strawberry blonde. Facial and body hair is all red all the time, though in a bunch of different shades. I have the freckles and oh my god the sun it burns as well. In someways that goes quite far in making my redness more stealth since the more sun I get the redder the hair is with a normal hair look for me. Spent 6 months working inside in a windowless environment and only going outdoors at dusk/night and was dark aired and nearly see through skin at the end of it. I don't know how I count though. I have a red haired parent, and a red haired daughter, (her mom is red headed as well) and my mom is a dirty bonde with a ginger sibling. I'm definitely a carrier if my silly 3/4ths of the time being a red head doesn't count.


Thinking if I get a promotion that I am currently up for letting my hair and beard grow out so that work has a 6'3" dude with a red braided beard and long red fringe.... It would be hilarious around the office.
