I'm a redhead, and I don't fit any of the 'stereotypes' mentioned on this page. Actually, I was just researching the history of redheads and how redheads were persecuted and killed in with hunts. Than I read this page. How interesting to see the discrimination (fear of the 'Other', anyone different from the norm) still present in our perceptions.

I don't even have a bad temper - very peaceful in fact. But history as I learned stated redheads were 'evil' even... Some quote as well suggesting there never was a 'saint' born a redhead.

I don't have any freckles. My sisters and I are dark skin. The genetics of hair color are not related to skin pigment.... I was born with green eyes, whilst my sisters were born with brown eyes and dark red/brown hair.

What I do know is we turn 'white', not gray in older age. We also whiten later in life. This is due to pigment cells.

How are pigment cells related to personality types?

I don't get it? A joke? I've dyed my hair many times ill of the stereotypes.

And besides, carrot tops are GREEN. Bleh, I thought grade school was over.

Check this website on the historical discrimination and torture of redheads to believe it:

I myself am a redhead. i actually get lots of compliments, when walking around often women will say how lovely it is and ask if its real etc. which i think is really nice. i sometimes love and sometimes hate it. there is so much negative stuff about 'gingers'. im not particularly bothered by it as it is mainly made up by ignorant or plain stupid people.
strawberry blonde is actually the most sought after colour of hair dye for women even if they don't admit to it. red coloured hair in the past was seen as royal as many important people like kings and nobleman had red hair.
anyway, why would anyone want brown or blonde hair if they already have natural redhair? why be like everyone else..some browns and blondes are nice but lots of shades are dull and the majority of blondes in britain and the USA aren't natural.
i really like the shade of my hair, sometimes it looks blonde and i get really light highlights in the summer. it is definitely NOT ginger. i understand people with really ginger hair may not like it as it is not the prettiest of hair colours but if you have a really gorgeous unusual shade of hair you are really lucky, people who make fun of it are either jealous or bored.
im slim but not tall or beautiful so i consider my hair my best assest, its different and only people who i couldn't care less about have said they didn't like it.
whoever commented that if you go to scotland, ireland or wales you will be 'traumatised' it is such a lie. yes there are some pretty orange folk but it is just not true that all of us are hideous. there are four redheads in my year and they all are gorgeous.
to all reheaded men and women..consider yourself special because your not ordinary, pale skin can be beautiful too. plus tanningcan give you cancer so whap out the fake bake :)

well said.

however, it is oh so unlikely that strawberry blonde is a "sought after" hair colour. look at the prevalence of purple toners and ash blonde dyes, these are so popular, and aim to remove any orange or red hues from the hair.

and yes, pale skin can be very beautiful, if looked after correctly. i personally have milky white skin (not pink toned), but cover it with fake tan on most occasions - mostly to avoid 'casper' comments from fat old brit expats trying to impress their young filipino mistresses, while they stare at your chest.

and yes, that was rather unrelated and irrelevant.

Hey, i'm a red-head and i love my hair colour. I think it's real pathetic how some people make fun our hair colour becuase after all it's only hair and i think ginger hair just rocks...it's rare and really stands out :)
People who make fun of gingers are just jealous and sad and anyone who says gingers are ugly is really mean because who you may find ugly someone else will think is beautiful!

Sorry to burst your bubble guys,
Christina Hendricks is NOT a natural redhead. She apparently dyed her NATURAL BLONDE HAIR at age 10.

Furthermore, people need to make the distinction between "gingers" and redheads. Dark red hair, and dyed red hair can be very beautiful. However, when you combine an unflattering hair shade with pale, pink hued skin and an abundance of freckles, this can sometimes creep people out. It is usually not attractive, particularly when one's eyebrows are undetectable (as often occurs with gingers). The eyebrow absence is most likely why people think gingers look odd. And why people with overplucked eyebrows look so stupid.

There is a reason people like Nicole Kidman are able to transform into such beautiful creatures - Kidman, for example, coloured her hair a more flattering shade of red/strawberry blonde,and removed her freckles. Goodbye ranga.

Redheads are rare, thus might be why you are seeing less attractive ones, as most people(despite hair color) are average to ugly anyway. I don't believe in the "Redheads are either ugly or not, no in between." That is because there's plenty of cute Redheads out there. Red hair, as a whole, is desired by a lot of people, even if some do not admit this, to date or have the hair color. This color has sold more dye than other hair colors(least many times, reported by dye companies). Old Hollywood loved Redheads! The contrast of red to auburn hair on pale slightly sun kissed freckled skin, is ethereal.

I don't mind any haircolors, I've seen mega hot brunettes, redheads, etc..but I hate blonde. Hot blondes are so extremely rare, I can't understand the stupid hype surrounding the haircolor. Blondes come in 3 types: Most of them are very plain and boring, a small amount of them are cute (wayy too cute to be hot) and then there's the 5 pounds of makeup, whorish and cheap ones. Where is the appeal in those? I don't get it.

I looove having red hair,it makes me stand out,though i do have fair skin and few freckles on my face, it sometimes gets me down!..I get takin the p*** out of in school sometimes for example..When guys walk past me,they say Ginga,I have a twin sis who also has red hair and nearly all my friends have red hair but 2 of them are dyeing theirs, which i think is silly and betraying their hair colour!,Our hair colour makes us unique from every1 else!,My best Friend has flaming red hair,Though she does get more making fun out of than me..But i will always stand up for her and she would do the same for me!..
Red haired people stand For Passion,Sassy,Sexy,And Anger! LOL,Though i have been told i loose my temper pretty easy!..and thats probably why!..

Sometime,i feel like dyeing my hair but whats the point,if all the gingers did this then we would only have the two main hair colours! Blonde and brunnette,And How Boring would our race be!..Pretty Boring!..

Ive seen loads of Gorgeous Redheads!..Eg.Isla Fisher,Amy Adams..Luara Prepon(That 70s Show)..Marg Helgenberger(From CSI)..And So on!..

P.S Carrot Tops are GREEN!!!

I'm a natural redhead and i'm used to gettin' compliments on my hair. Alot of girls wish they had my hair..It isn't really RED RED, but you can definatly tell i'm a redhead and that it is natural. =] Even though some people might not like red hair, there are ALOT of people that LOVE red hair. i'm a redhead and i'm proud to be one. Most redheads can't get tanned as well as brunettes or blondes, but a tan doesn't matter really. Redheads look better with just a little tan.. not REALLY TANNED. Me and my mom look ALOT alike, she has red hair too and she is very pretty, i look up to her alot. So all those haters out there, it's your opinion. But, my opinion on redheads is that they have style, they're energetic, they're definatly NOT dull, and they are full of BEAUTY,=].

I have red hair andd at school i used to allways be bullyed about it i was called all sorts from carrot top to hob-nob it realy did upset me but now when i look back ii just realise how stupid i was to let it get to me people often stop me in the street and say how beautiful my hair is infact i have been asked on more than on occasion where i have had my hair died and how much it cost but ofcorse i couldnt answer that because it is natural.
I learnt to ignor bullys and be lucky i have this colour hair because some girls pay thousands trying to get a nice red hair colour.
And people who are sayin redheads have less athletic ability they people who dont have red hair are rong just because the colour of you hair dosnt mean you not good at athletics and not all redheads are ugly yes some are but so are some blonds and some brunetts every1 is differant and people who pass comment on redheads callin them names ect, are usaly jelous ;):) =P

Okay. I had to comment on this. I am a natural red head. I live in the United States. My mother has red hair, my brothers have red hair, my sister has strawberry blonde.

All of my life I was teased. At school I had no friends, no matter how much I tried or sucked up to people. I was 'different' - therefore I was the target. Maybe it had to do with small class sizes, or the fact that it was a private school, but I hated it. I was called every name in the book. "Ginger" "Fire Crotch" "Carrot-Top" I'd have people sing the rhymes "Red Head, Red Head, Fire in the Wood Shed" and all other types. If people out there think that those things didn't affect me you're dead wrong.

Today I suffer from avoidant personality disorder (google it), depression, and more. The doctor's say it most likely 'stemmed from my childhood tramas'. Well, so much for that, right? I'm twenty one, I've never been in a relationship, never had sex, avoid most people, don't know how to deal with compliments. And people do compliment my hair, a lot, but I honestly get embarrassed by it. I hate it. I've thought about dying it, but I think I'm more affraid of the change than the attention. I don't want to end up with a color I don't like, or roots that grow out.

I HATE being called ginger and carrot-top, even though people who call me that are just teasing or using it as a term of endearment. Mainly because it reminds me of all the bullying from my elementary school days. So to everyone on here who thinks hair color doesn't zero you out, or that 'teasing' doesn't hurt - news flash. It does. A lot.

And to everyone out there with confidence in themselves and their red hair, props. You give us a better name. As for me, I kind of just like to pretend I'm normal, and don't respond to compliments or comments. And sometimes I even tell people my hair is dyed, just so they leave me alone.

It really, really sucks.

Im a red head too....a curly redhead. the teasing all started in middle school i would have done anything to change my hair but my parents wouldn't let me. guys would purposely ask me to dance then they'd push me away and be say "ewww you have gingeritis" and they wouldn't just say it they would yell it. i hated it so much i even thought about suicide no joke. but now i've learned to just embrace the fact that I'm a redhead and that I'm different and guys that are willing to go out w/ me deserve it bc they like the fact that i have red hair even though its not viewed as sexy but in my book it is :)

@: Breezy
are you totally joking!!! I love red heads. My current boyfriend is the first red head I've ever dated and I absolutely love him and his red hair. I thought he was extremely beautiful the first minute he talked to me with his ginger hair. As far as people teasing and ostrasizing red heads because of their hair color... they are either very insecure or hideously jealous. I've always found red heads extremely more attractive than blonde and brunettes. I naturally have brown hair (dyed black) and I swear to god I wish I had naturally bright ginger red hair every minute I look at my ugly black hair...uuuhhhggg... All I can say is if your a red head and think every one hates your hair color... you are totally wrong. Because people like my self want what you already have... RED HAIR.
LONG LIVE THE GINGERS!

First of all, I dont usually bother with this type of internet site however I felt the need to defend my wife (she's a redhead). I personally feel that redheaded women are stunning! You have proberly only seen unattractive redheads, saying that theres alot of unattractive brunettes and blondes out there.

i have naturally bright red hair, freckles, white skin, green eyes.
-i don't play sports.. only because i dont want to. i'm more of the artsy type. i can sing like a motherfucker (:
-i've NEVER ever been picked on.
-there's never been a time when i didnt have a guy crushing on me, or trying to get with me. i could definitley get all the sex i wanted from quite a few people. the term "firecrotch" is a good thing, ya know? you should be proud of that. most guys LOVE redheads.
-uhh, i'm definitley NOT inbred. where the fuck did that even come from?
-& i couldnt come close to counting how many girls ive heard talk about how jealous they were of my hair. i get compliments on it everytime i go somewhere.
-guys who like just blondes are shallow and should rot. most blondes are fake and stuck up. and whores. and it's usually not even natural. and trust me, ive seen some ugly ass blonde and brunette girls in my time.
-and brunettes..really? brown is the color of SHIT. it's like someone shit on their head. dont get me wrong, i have seen some pretty brown hair.. but brown is such a boring and normal color.
-i'm proud of my hair. boys love it. girls envy it.
-as far as us all being ugly.. NEWS FLASH: it's not true. lol. i dont think im gorgeous, but apparently everyone else does. ive honestly only had two guys in my whole life of fifteen years tell me im ugly or dont look good.
so yeah.. everyone who says redheads are ugly and should die..
GO FUCK YOURSELF. you're just a bunch of jealous bitches. (:

A beautiful pale-skinned redhead has historically been considered "the creme de la creme" of beautiful.

Because most people of any hair colour aren't "stunning" and because there are so few natural redheads, it's a rare to see a stunning redhead. Nothing grabs my male hormonal attention more than a pretty pale redhead with some dainty freckles. I wish I had such features! lol.

There's another key aspect to be considered...

Redheads are the butt of unrecognised racism. Calling a redhead a derogatory name because of their difference, is the same as calling a black or asian person such a name. A lot of insecure olive-brown-skinned, brown-haired people are racist towards the whitest of people: redheads.
Hence, many redheads are insecure from a childhood of racist taunting from brown people.

And projecting a sense of sincere self-confidence is one of the keys of being attractive. That's the problem for many redheads I've met: racist taunting in childhood has sapped their confidence; damaged their self-image. They believe they're ugly hence they project "ugly": via posture, attitude, and a lack of making a little effort to enhance natural beauty with a little glamour etc.

PS - in reference to a previous poster, I'd love to live in Scotland or Ireland. In Australia I'm visually traumatised by all the orange-brown people with leathery skin and terrible bad blonde hair bleaching.

"That's the problem for many redheads I've met: racist taunting in childhood has sapped their confidence; damaged their self-image."
I don't think my confidence has been sapped and I'm a redhead. I've been taunted a bit, yeah, but my confidence hasn't wavered because of my hair. Almost everyone I meet says my hair has the most gorgeous color they've ever seen so i don't really have a problem with my hair. Even the reason my username is "SweetCinnamon" is because my hair color is called Cinnamon instead of broadly red, but it is red. I don't think being a redhead makes us lose any confidence.

Hi everyone im josh

Red heads are not any less attractive in anyway, we are all humans... unfortunately :p
we are all what we make of ourselves i hold the record for high jump at Rose Bay high school for a grade 9 so we can play sports,

you are not the king of ANYTHING..nobody except for like queen elizabeth. Im a red hed with fiery orange hair and the good thing is us red heads are unique in our own way. I sat in the middle of class with people talking about ME and my hair. they say why are you a red head..red heads are ugly and i said i dont care what you think at least im unique. i love my hair. maybe you should take less time talking about other people and listen to what other people say about YOU. I get comments on my hair all the time sure i get called names like ginger and leprechaun and all these others names but i only to one(okay maybe two) but it doesnt hurt. i like being the way i am. i have my flaws and i have my beauty, but what makes me stand out is my hair.

the truth is that the perceived ugliness of red hair is a ridiculous cultural phenomenon: growing up in england, my red hair was a hurdle i had to overcome to get girlfriends, and i was told i was "not bad looking... for a ginga"; in other parts of the world (especially where i now live in Finland) my red hair makes me much more attractive and i get compliments on it. a female friend of mine experienced the same thing moving from england to italy. so it seems to be something strangely cultural, with english people for some reason feeing uncomfortable with someone who looks too "celtic", or something.

i was reading this and was actually quite offended by some of the things that had been suggested by people...eg red-heads are rubbish at athletics i am a red-head i am not rubbish at sports i compete sucessfully at national levels in swimming and biathlon events.
i have not had any problems in finding lads at all and get regular compliments about my hair..some nobs chastise against redheads..this has only happened to me on rare ocasions but it is hurtful when it does happen and makes you feel extremly conscious about the way u look no matter how attractive u may or may not be..whats there game there plenty of good looking redheads out there.
Comment Hidden (show)
Oh yeah, this is interesting: One suggestion as to why redheads are almost extinct (less than 4%% of the population) is because we never had a chance to reproduce considering scores of redheads were massacered during the witch hunts. If I had known this before as a child, I think I would have said more to the 'jokes'.

I think there must be as many beautiful redheads within our 4%% as there are beautiful brunettes you see everyday in what 90%% of the population?

i too am a "red head" as they call it. i dont think i am majorly pretty or anything, but i certainly dont think i am ugly! its hurtful when people say things like this, especially as it is something that i was born with, and had no say say in, but it hasnt any affect on my personality! i am a human, just like everyone else, and the world would be a boring place if everybody looked the same. i do get a lot of hurtful comments, but i try not to let it ruin my day, and just keep a smile on my face, because i have also had quite a few comments from people who tell me not to dye my hair, they love my hair, its so unusual and all that stuff, so all of you people who talk about red heads in a bad way get a life coz you cant do anything about it so you might aswell get over it. i happen to be a nice person, and i think its stupid to hate people because of a COLOUR. because thats all it is. a lot of peoples fave colour happens to be red, and yeah sometimes its just playful teasing, which i can also laugh along with, but when it turns into more than that it stops being funny and it turns into bullying. btw my whole family is red head, and my mum is the most beautiful person i have ever seen, and i would be so lucky, if i was to become half as beautiful as she is when i reach her age. so for all you people who talk about red heads all the time thanx for making US the center of YOUR world!
Comment Hidden (show)
Okay firstly, I'm a red head and I love my hair colour and I wouldn't want it to be dyed. Secondly - saying that calling red heads names is not seen as a form of bullying is utter rubbish. I went through all of school being bullied and I have an identical twin who obviously has the same colour of hair and she was attacked by people in our school because of our hair colour. It doesn't make someone feel good about themselves either having someone comment on the way you look.

And not to single anyone out but the person that has said that most "red-heads are inbred" that is the most stupid thing i have ever heard. That could be taken very offensively and it is rather disgusting.

I'm a natural redhead. And actually redhead guys and girls are considered to be the most sexy and beautiful creatures of the earth. Men and women both fall for the gorgeous red hair and flawless pale skin brushed with some freckles. I actually like freckles. It's something redheads have that many people don't, making redheads unique. To me, freckles are just as amazing and magnificent as the stars in the sky. In fact, to me, they are a lot alike. Redheads are also not your typical tanned blonde or brunette. I'm not bashing on them or anything, but blondes and brunettes tend to have that tanned and cloned look, like they all look alike... Redheads have something different. I like tans, don't get me wrong. But something about that gorgeous porcelain skin is just amazingly beautiful. Also, redheads have the most powerful sex drive in humans, making them the best bed partners (;. Many redheads are bullied and picked on. However, I think that it's all over jealousy. Many people of the world would kill to have the hair and complexion of a redhead and luckily I am blessed with it, and I think it's absolutely amazing :)... Not to mention that red hair is the most rare hair color out there, making it all the more sexy. If you have a redhead, I would not let him or her go!

i think red heads are whatever they think of them selves they dont have to care what other ppl think of them and they sure as hell shouldnt think twice about it.i was born a natural fire red head and nobody made fun of me because they knew that they would get punched if they did guys hit on me like they would some one else i got good comments a lot probably because i was so rare not to many ppl could buy or be born with that color and about athletic ability dont say ANYTHING about that i played baseball and softball since i was three and always would come out on top you pick who you want to be u dont just wind out not athletic or not although you cant really pick if you want to be a red head or not to me i like standing out but i dont like the attention when ppl say "Oh you have such beautiful hair" it embarrasses me but i am proud to be who i am and i dont care what other ppl think of me it is as simple as that(=

ok so i read all these comments and decided to join in on this.

my hair color is a mixture of brown, red, and blonde. It isnt orange. not to be gross or anything but my pubes are more of a blacker shade.
even though my hair isnt the sterotypical "ginger" orange, i still get called names and all the teasing. when i was younger i used to be proud of my hair but now since im in high school its the only thing i get teased about. im not sure if its because these people cant find anything else wrong with me because i have plenty of friends, athletic, and i have a weird but hilarious sense of humor. the teasing HAS chipped away at my confidence but i had so much to begin with considering all of the things i have accomplished in life that im not lacking in confidence. definately not successful in the "getting a girl" department. im not sure why but i think its due the environment im in, in which everyone THINKS im a ginger and therefore are programmed by society to have a false opinon about me. the reason i think this is because i know that im not an ugly person. i look at myself and think im attractive. I hate how people dont think that "ginger" and "nigger" are equivalent. they are both derogatory terms yet maybe because there is a smaller amount of red heads than blacks on this earth that the term "ginger" doesnt carry the same effect as "nigger". i commend all of the red heads here that are bursting with self-confidence. but i think that the thing that gets me most angry is that people assume that my hair is fiery orange just because im white and i have freckles (not even that much). i belive that people think this because in my school there really isnt a ginger (i know this sounds a little ridiculous but our school is very small) so the kids need to label the few kids that slightly resemble one (like me) as a ginger and the bullying ensues. i like my hair and i would never stoop to everyone else's level and dye it just to fold to everyone else. i'm not sure if i will be somehow mentally affected by what i deal with somewhere down the road but its something i just need to deal with. luckily there is some great advice from most of these comments that i can use. but for now, the way society functions just doesnt make sense to me.

PS- if you actually read all of that congrats lol

Hi everyone, I made an account on here simply because of this question. I'm a redhead myself, and I've seen a lot of people respond on here about how redheads are really envied and every single redhead you know is highly desired and loved by everyone. Well, that isn't always the case. I spent every year in school getting those "carrot-top" and "ginger" comments as insults, and I hate them. Girls would constantly laugh at me as I walk by and say things like, "turn your heads before your eyes start to bleed, the carrot-top is coming!" I live in Washington state in the USA, and it seems just universal here that redheads are hated. I have a very good body, being petite with a good facial structure, and not heavy at all, everything that everyone has always hated about me is my hair. I've never had any friends during school, and I never had any guys ask me out and I never got to go to any school dances. I'm 19 now, past High School, and I never got to experience anything because everyone hated my red hair. So, at least here, its a common opinion that red hairs are the ugliest thing on the face of the planet.

Its also true that redheads are a minority though. If you look on the national statistics for the USA its estimated that only 2-4% of our population is a redhead. That's an insanely low number! That number is the ONLY reason I haven't dyed my hair despite the fact that I'm alone because of it; its too rare to get rid of.

So , I've commented on here quite a few time, but I just had to say this...
I'm a natural blonde and this weekend I decided to dye it a shade lighter and it turned redish blonde.
So I'm kind of a red head at the moment...

@: Breezy
I'm sure that looks good because you don't have to deal with what comes with having naturally red hair. Like the freckles, pasty skin, firecrotch, and lack of athletic ability.

So being a redhead makes us have less athletic ability than anyone who isn't a redhead?
Comment Hidden (show)
I'd so much rather be pasty white than disgustingly fake tan and get all leathery and look 10 years older then i actually am when i get older. Redheads are bad ass from the moment were born we're rebels no matter where we go we'll always stand out, not blend in like all the other boring blonds and brunettes. Freckles are adorable they add more to your character. and for non-athleticism where the hell did that come from?! thats like saying all redheads loose their left pinky toe at age 50.
Comment Hidden (show)
I don't agree with the 'lack of athletic ability' part. You could say that about anyone. I would definately agree if you said fat red heads or red heads who smoke could have a lack of athletic ability but red heads in general are just as good as the rest of them.

@: yes_tans_are_ugly

You can't compaire the taunting of red heads to racism. The colour of your skin can't be change but the colour of your hair can be changed. You could say the same for people who wear glasses or someone who is poor. Basically anyone who isn't mainstream.

I am a red head. Sometimes I get called names but I don't let it get me down. Infact I'm fond of the term 'Ginger'. It makes me different and 'there's nothing more worse than being ordanary.' - American Beauty

"colour of your skin can't be change but the colour of your hair can be changed" - Tell that to Micheal Jackson. Why the hell should a person have to change the colour of their hair because of the ignorance of others? The race/hair thing seems to be accurate to me as both are mainly based on colour.

okay listen guys. i am a real red head... all redheads are considered gingers.. some are pretty some are not... but everyone is different so theres alot of differents typess..see some redheads dont get tan and they have alot of freckless and are short and flat chested..and others are like me, tan long straight hair , like only two freckles on each cheeck , which u can cover with makeup, big boobs , skinny and very prettty ...all read heads are usually prettty.. andd very athletic i was a tom boy growing up...and now im getting in the modelling buisness. PLus the best thing about redhair is that it never gets gray or white. and redheads usually fall under the category or brunettes but often look similar to blondes (:

Nobody ever cares about all the blonde jokes out there...I really don't think calling someone a "carrot top" is meant to be offensive, just playful, I have a friend with fiery orange hair and We always call him a leprachan, just as a joke, we all think his hair is really awesome and he knows it is because it's unique. Granted, I'm more redish blonde now butI've been blonde all my life and people always tell me blonde jokes and I think it's funny. But, anything that makes someone feel bad about themselves is wrong,if anyone ever told me saying something about hair color offended them I would stop but I think they're like me and they know everyone is just messing and aren't saying things with malice.

The hair is simply a colour, does not make anyone less attractive or more attractive, apart from the brain dead males that are obsessed with the blond thing.

Facial looks and personality are what any normal and mature male will look to in a woman.

im a natural red head and the thing i hate the most is how people think that just because you have red hair that you are celtic....well red hair comes from all around the world. in fact i am 100%% Greek and from Greece and I have red hair...also, i tan great and better than some brunettes and dont get freckles...my hair is a dark red, but my facial hair shows up as bright red..not all natural redheads are pale skinned. i also had a friend who was Iranian who had an auburn shaded hair color. i know nobody in my family intermarried with other races because we are from a small remote island where intermarrying with turks or western Europeans is not as intense as in mainland Greece..we consider ourselves more purely Greek than most Greeks because in mainland Greece the Turks invaded and intermarried with the Greeks, giving Greeks black hair with a more middle eastern look..however, us islanders were not invaded as intensely and and if you ever go out there you will be surprised to see numerous blondes and red heads...so most people in the states are surprised when they hear my name is Vasilis Alexandrios Stravroulakis instead of Brady O'Brian or something like that...but in Greece, they know im an islander because of my red hair...and they know im not a foreigner because of my darker complection...zhto h hellas!

I'm a guy, have long curly red hair, and absolutley love it cause no joke i get positive feedback about it all the time from ladies of all ages, especially from random girls at school. The only downside is that douchebag kids will yell that i look like carrot top, but honestly that dude's a creep and we look nothing alike other than hair color so i don't let it get to me. But more often I get that I look like shaun white and that's cool cause he's an olympic snowboarder.

Im a girl, and have red hair, very fair skin, freckles and blue/green eyes. Im so pale that I can only wear the 001 rose ivory or pocelain rose foundation, and even they are darker than my natural skin! I have to wear factor 50 sun lotion too, because I burn really easily.

Reading through this, I've found some of the comments quite offensive - for example that red-heads are bad at sport. I enjoy sport and i'm quite good at it.

I live in the UK, and here I get a lot of teasing, name calling and general put downs on my appearance, and it has made me feel very insecure and self conscious. Being called ginga, fire crotch, ginga puebs, ginga minge, period head, carrot top etc by strangers is not really what you want when you're walking down the street - if a black person was walking down the street and people shouted nigger, blackie etc, they would probably have to face criminal charges...

People at school would come up to me and pretend to warm their hands on my hair. Once, on my way home from school, I got attacked by a bunch of chavs, who threw water on my and spat at me, shouting "Die ginger!". Even my friends constantly tease me and make jokes about me being ginger - they tell me to go back to my biscuit tin, or tell me to back away, saying they don't want to catch gingeritis :(

And this year, tesco's supermarket had to withdraw a christmas card that showed Santa giving a present to a red-haired child, and below the caption said "Santa loves all kids, even ginger ones". Well what's wrong with red-headed children?

I also get a lot of complements on my hair, from boys, and from strangers in the street. I've been told that its beautiful, and that i look like a goddess, that i look very Pre-raphelite (from paintings), and that i look like a porcelain doll...

Although it's nice to receive complements, it still shows that I draw alot of attention from my hair...at a recent interview for higher education, the first thing my interviewer said when I walked into the office was "Wow, what stunning hair"...I know he meant this as a complement but it would be nice to go by being a little less noticable...

I don't understand why people can't get over people with red-hair...

I am an all natural redhead. My hair is more orange than red but i'm a redhead none the less. I do not think i'm beautiful, pretty, or worth looking at. I don't think i ever will be. Sometimes i wish i had someone else's looks like there hair, eyes, face, or body. I have been complimented on my red hair, i didn't mind it but i never thought that my red hair was worth that much. No one has ever really liked me, i have never really felt truly loved, nor have a felt i'm on this world for a purpose. We all have a different opinions. You might think redheads are pretty, or u can think there pasty and disgusting. I am nothing special but at the end of the day i'm thankful for everything i have, i am thankful for just being me

I am a redhead from Scotland, where you get bullied for having red hair. Sure, some guys love redheads, and that's great, but I'm not lying when I say being ginger has a negative effect on my self-esteem. My natural colour is a medium/dark red, not really orange, with natural blonde highlights. I know that it's a pretty colour, when I think about it? But I can't stand it being the colour of my hair. Currently my hair is dyed blonde, because my eyebrows & roots are lighter so it looks more natural.

Maybe it sounds like I'm being overdramatic, but I got teased so much at school that I now keep my natural hair colour a secret. I don't think I'm stunning, but I don't think I'm ugly, though I can't help but feel personally that my attractiveness would go up tenfold if only I wasn't a redhead. And I don't give a fuck if you're "only teasing" - even things like walking past someone in the street and them saying "All right, *Ginger*?" with a smirk makes me feel self-conscious. I constantly keep my roots done and(sorry TMI) my 'carpet' shaved. I feel uncomfortable if someone notices any roots that might be creeping in and ask me if I'm a natural redhead. I really, really hate it.

It has a lot to do with where I live, because(despite being famous for the number of gingers it apparently has) Scotland treats red-haired people horribly. I am moving to the USA once I finish up university as there is a job for me there plus I have relatives Stateside - and I am actually feeling relieved and like I might finally be able to let my hair grow out.

So yeah you might have a friend that doesn't mind you teasing, or you yourself are redheaded and don't mind being teased.. but unless you KNOW for a fact that the person you're making fun of knows it's a joke? Don't.

I'm seeing a 19%normal here.. that's quite strange I think. Everyone has his own preference, maybe you just aren't attracted to that hair colour. I'm most attracted to brunettes, but with me it's not that there's a hair colour that i really dislike.
Maybe the ppl that are voting "not normal" are redhaired themselves and are feeling insulted, or they're thinking that this is discrimination but it isn't at all, and you don't have to feel insulted. It's the same as saying: I like white girls over black. This isn't racist because you can't control what type of girls you like. Is it discriminating to say that you like girls that you consider pretty over girls that you consider ugly?

I am a redhead, very orange one, and I was never fazed by name-calling when I was young. I just found it stupid and annoying. I think bullies should have come up with a few more names than carrot-top and ginger.

I don't think hair color matters as much as skin color. I'd much rather be tan than pasty white. I think white skin has a way of looking larger than tan skin, if that makes sense? Like, I could be the same size as a tan person, but look one or two sizes larger because my skin color is much lighter and stands out much more. I don't enjoy this feature.

I really do love my hair color though. I don't like what goes along with it - the pasty skin- but the color is so bright and vibrant. The best part is having the beautiful little hairs in other parts of my body, like my legs, under arms and so on. I think other colors are gross - no offence! - but it's just because the only color I have is orange and that's what I'm used to.

I hate the being called a fire crotch; it's the only phrase that truly insults me. People I barely know have called me that and I think that is the main reason I find it so distasteful.

Also, I don't understand why people would call themselves redheads if they're hair isn't bright orange or red. If you have to explain to someone that you're a redhead and it takes a second for them to realize, then you shouldn't be considered one.

I myself am a read head . I have blonde highlights in my hair. My teacher the other day said I have strawberry blonde hair. Huge argument happened over my hair because everyone has seen my hair before I got the highlights. Thinking about growing the highlights out possibly? Everyone loves my hair but I hate it because I look different. I obviously don't have te common brown blonde hair and I wish I did. My friends get into arguments with me because I think im ugly because I have freckles not a lot though. I'm not the only redhead in school there are two other redheads In my grade. I wish I was blonde or something. Redheads can never get a tan. It sucks. :'( . And of course redheads most of the time are either polish or Irish. I'm Irish(: anyway I hate my hair :(

For any numb nut that does not know their history, I have a big supprise 4 them!!

GINGER!!" to my girlfriend and when challenged dissapeared into the crowd. It is possibly one of the rarest hair colours in the world and even more so coveted around the world.

It is a misnoma that red heads are angrier than the rest of us, case in point, the lad that shouted it out!!!! And here I was thinking he was a scotland fan

As a red haired girl, I don't find it rational to assume that people of a certain hair color are inherently less attractive. We are not biologically drawn to blonds and brunettes. That's a cultural feeling toward them. That's why in certain time periods and regions of the world different characteristics are admired. During the Renaissance, being overweight was attractive. In China, at some point having very small feet was attractive. What I'm saying is that ideas of attractiveness vary.

If anyone's feeling self conscious about red hair, I found this facebook page called RedHot. It is awesome. This photographer is taking pictures of really attractive red-haired men in an effort to change the negative stereotype. They are all gorgeous and have faced some sort of bullying or discrimination for having red hair. My favorite is Race Imboden, a U.S. Olympic fencer and model. If you're into the bad boys, Jake Hold is smoking hot as well. I've had so much ginger pride after seeing that!

Well the taunting is a part of being a natural red head. If people hate it so much they should change hair colour because they don't have the confidence to live as a red head. It's not like there are 'blond-only toilets' and all the high-paying jobs taken by brunnets. No one can say it's anywhere near racism. I hate red heads who take those jokes seriously.

I hate generalizations. But it goes to show, cultural understanding is not gained through traveling the world. I think it is funny how you group an entire minority in a box, and thats all there is. It is also funny how you believe you have seen so much, but you clearly need to get out more.
Just like any other "group" of people Redheads have the ability to both inspire and illuminate. Vincent Van Gogh was a red, Mark Twain, Maitse, Galileo, Nepolean, Cleopatra, Queen Elizabeth, Thomas Jefferson,Vivaldi. Redheads have been in Playboy, redheads strut there stuff on catwalks worldwide, redheads are just as hardcore, beautiful,athletic, and accomplished as anyone. Not to mention redheads have risen above centuries of odd persecution and obsession, but I wouldn't expect someone so narrow minded to know that.

A fetish is when someone has a fixation on a certain thing, and often it's sexual. For instance some people have a big breast fetish, skinny girl fetish, blond fetish, red head fetish. Sometimes they get weird like getting sexually aroused by school girls or other such weird things. Some guys love red headed girls and find them sexually attractive.

racism against blacks and other minorities is out of hatred for them(at least extreme racism which is what I'm talking about). "Making fun" or "teasing" in jest towards redheads is not the same as hating them. I have friends that are red headed that I have teased about having red hair and a lot of people do but not seriously making fun of them to where they feel bad.

Ok, so if I were to jokingly call a black person a "nigger" or "jungle bunny", just for the sake of teasing, you would consider this ok because it is not true racism?

"high school we always busted on the ginger kids, haha." - To me, that sounds like bullying and is probably seen as more than just simple "teasing" to the person on the recieving end.

i don't know what else to say, we were not making the kids feel bad, it was like a running joke. I think you are taking my comments out of context. There was never any bullying of red heads going on at my school. And calling a black person a "nigger" or "jungle bunny" would never be considered teasing because nigger is a considered by most a bad word, hence the astericks blocking it on this site. Terms like "carrot top" or "ginger kid" are not bad words.

"Terms like "carrot top" or "ginger kid" are not bad words." - Yes, because it is accepted discrimination. This doesn't make it right.

"Jungle Bunny" isn't censored, "Biscuit Lips" isn't censored, "Blackie Kid" isn't censored, "Slanty eyes" isn't censored. Are any of these terms acceptable in society?

"we were not making the kids feel bad" - How do you know? Constantly harassing someone because of something they are born into can't exactly be something they will always be happy with. Just because you are not offended or the kids you do it with are too scared to say anything back doesn't make it ok.

Most redheads are really ginger so if you think of a clown you will know what I mean.

most redheads are inbred. That's why they're ugly. There are some hot ones though.

There are only 2 kinds of red headed women.
Hideously ugly gingers OR
Stunning sexy women with firey hair.

Sadly the chances of meeting the latter are far outweighed by the reality that the world is populated by more ginger sick inducing women than the stunning variety.
Just go to Ireland or Scotland or Wales and you'll come back traumatised.
