When did you hear anyone ask Wesley Snipes, Frank Bruno or Kofi Annan if their bollox were Black? If they haven’t why haven’t they? If they have did would the questioner end up with eyes the colour of Wesley’s bollox?
As far as I am aware Prince Harry is the only man in the public eye [except Rupert Grint on the Pub Landlord programme] who has been asked this intrusive, abusive and obviously discriminatory question.
In both these cases it was a man asking another man. So what was the point of this discriminatory question? Was it to amaze? Was it to amuse the redhead? [NO]
Was it intended as a compliment? Was it an attempt to pull the redhead by showing an interest in his nether regions? Can the soldier or Al Murray explain their interest in another mans bollox? Why do the majority feel obligated to ask this abusive, intrusive question?
As a female who has been asked the question a lot I don’t know what the point is. I say to myself if this eejit doesn’t know the answer he ain’t got enough worldly knowledge to be much of a shag. If he does know the answer why is he asking the question? Does he really think I will be amused by a discriminatory question that I’ve been asked at least one million times. Can he really be so stupid as to believe he is the first to ask? Am I amazed, amused, turned on, embarrassed or humiliated? My reaction is none of these but that’s where I’m at a loss. What is my reaction supposed to be? I really don’t know I wish someone would explain I feel stupid because I don’t know. I do know it is discrimination. I know natural blondes are occasionally bothered by such a question but there are not the ready and uncomplimentary names that seem to automatically spring to peoples minds as with redheads. If you’re not my doctor and you’re not my lover on a need to know basis why do you need to know? Why do you need to ask? If you don’t know me why do you feel the need to call me contemptuously familiar names?
