Remind me again why red hair is such a BAD thing?

apoptotic: 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.


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 have had several redheaded girl friends. They are stunning to look at and are the tiger form of femininity in bed.

RedT: This is actually pretty interesting, since I am the sole redhaired child of two dark haired, dark eyed Itailans who produced three children: two with dark hair and blue eyes and one redhead with hazel eyes.

I guess they didn't really find me on hte doorstep as I had long suspected.

hovsm: Why does everyone talk Ireland when discussing redheads? Scotland has a higher percentage than Ireland.


Yeah, but who wants to talk about Scotland in any context whatsoever?
