I'm a redhead so I'm really getting a kick out of these replies...

I actually am a redhead though. This happens quite a lot.

Hmm, only harrassment I ever got was a "fire crotch" here and there, maybe three times in my life. Then again, I'm almost a daywalker so I guess that helps...

/drapes match the carpets

The full-time dad, 49, says the abuse has become so bad that his 11-year-old son - also called Kevin - recently tried to hang himself.

Good effort....ginger.

90% of the thugs currently beat off thinking about the daughter, and will be trying to nail her as soon as they won't go to jail for it. The other 10%...same thing, but for the sons.

I heard somewhere that red hair is as uncommon as hermaphrodites...

So we're special biatches! Just like hermies...

/god that just makes it worse

Red hair is hot.

I just hope those thugs try to harrass Carrot Top next.

Buy the kids an aluminium baseball bat and send them out to play. Remind them to think kneecaps.

nothing wrong with redhead. where's the alyson hannigan pics?

Ginger hair, being fat, being gay, being short, being tall, doesn't much matter. The only cure for bullying is to find the leader and kick the shiat out of him.

It's how I survived public school as a chubby, book-loving nerd!

My dad passed on his condolences to the neighbour when he found out her grand daughter was born with red hair. She was blaming her son in laws family and took it very well.

The other day I was discussing my son's white blonde hair with a girl I'd never met before. She said to me "Thank god it's not red. The best thing about being a wog is knowing I'll never have a red headed child" I would have been shocked if I didn't laugh so hard I choked.

wtf is up with not liking red hair? on a chick it's hot.

what's up with you UK folks? why is it such a bad thing?
 
2007-06-02 5:34:08 AM  
I don't think those kids know how hot red-headed girls are yet.

Yeah, thanks, I'll take freckles, red hair and green eyes over some blond and blue biatch any day of the week.

I really don't understand this seemingly random hatred of ginger-haired people. One of my friends in middle school was a really hot redhead, and just got better looking as puberty, erm, did its thing. However, she got constantly hassled by people, simply because she was ginger.

Jeez, STFU and move to Ireland.

/my Irish Ma has red hair

I'm a red head..I mean my head looks like its on fire. Got my share of abuse as a kid, but nothing like the family in the article. I really got sick of all the Hoddy Doody jokes and the remarks about having red hair 'down there', but fortunately I have 5 older brothers with hair as red as mine who took care of the worst bullies. As I got older, the other kids figured out that having red hair also meant that I just may have a nasty temper when provoked.

I suspect something else is going on with the family in the article.

btw, I wouldn't change my hair color for love nor money.
 
2007-06-02 5:47:32 AM  
I have orange hair and I got alot of shiat for it as a kid.

Now that I am older I really enjoy my haircolor.

Trust me, you don't know what passion is unless you've shagged a redhead.

Bad attitude + red hair = AAAAAAH YEAH baby!

It's because we stand out.

On a random note, one thing I never got, why when you reach adolescence do people start asking what colour our pubic hair is?

I often wonder if it is an anti-Scottish thing.

ginger.
rhymes with minger.

2007-06-02 6:02:09 AM  
I never understood why it was bad. "Ginger" women are gorgeous!
 
2007-06-02 6:04:57 AM  
I'm not a ginger, but have the red hair and pasty white skin (a few freckles here and there). I guess I lucked out, the guys in my school always thought it was hot. Plus, it means I get to have 'redheaded' temper tantrums when I get pissy.
 
2007-06-02 6:05:51 AM  
The girl I love left me for a ginger.

So if you'd like an objective, unbiased opinion I'd suggest emailing me.

/always loved red headed girls so can't go through with the extermination plan.

I have a wacky theory on Southpark tackling 'gingers' - that is not a term I ever heard in the United States. It is British English, so why would Southpark pluck such an obscure thing to be the object of Cartman's hatred?

Then I had a vision - rearrange the letters 'g_i_n_g_e_r' to make reference to another skin color.

n_i_g...

Matt Stone and Trey Parker were very discretely ripping on the Blacks then went all John Howard Griffin and Twilight Zone on us like the episode when the Nazi was haunted by all his prisoners.

Dr. Mojo PhD: Yeah, thanks, I'll take freckles, red hair and green eyes over some blond and blue biatch any day of the week.

What he said and lots more of it.

Unless he is a she... in which case, what she said, more of it, and this thread useless without pictures.

/loves me the redheads
/also the non-tanned look
/also the green eye thing
 
2007-06-02 6:25:04 AM  
Thread useless without pictures anyway.
 
2007-06-02 6:25:08 AM  
Okay, not that I have anything against these people, but can we just come up with a name for them that's less retarded-sounding than, "Gingers"? Maybe it's a UK thing, but still...

/loves natural redheads
//and cleavage with freckles

I think it's just being predjudiced against irish/scots more then anything else. Remember, until a while ago, europeans actually considered the irish to be a different 'race' then they were.....cause of the red hair. Throughout european history red haired people have always been portrayed in literature and in art as being evil or sinister. If you ran across a red haired character in a novel you could be sure they'd turn out evil. Even Judus was said to have had red hair.

Jamieboy: and the remarks about having red hair 'down there'

I always found the best method of shutting them up is to stick you hand down your pants and offer them a handfull.

Surprising how many people don't take the piss after you've done that to them :-)
 
2007-06-02 7:55:39 AM  
WTF is up with this?

I never heard of gingers getting abuse before this. Never heard the term ginger before that South Park episode either.

I had red hair when I was younger, and still have freckles too kinda. This MUST be a UK thing against Irish, it's the only this makes any sense to me.

Albinos I can see getting picked on, just because it's so rare.

/Redheads are hot.
//Never seen an albino chick nekkid though... Someone wanna post a link?
 
2007-06-02 7:58:31 AM  
Are you shiattin' me? I have never heard of that before - I mean, besides on South Park. I thought they were just making crap up!
 
2007-06-02 8:03:48 AM  
For non-UK Farkers - this goes on all the time every day here. Imagine the most hacknyed insult ever - this is it.
