I truly believe that Gingerism is no different than racism in that what brings about the majority wrath is the colour we are born.
Many of the majority say that fat people and others get bullied as well, which is true but them bragging about the amount of bullying that goes on in British society is another debate.
I object to being likened to the fat, being ridiculed like the fat
a] Fat is not a minority - obesity is an epidemic
b] Fat is, for the most part, a lifestyle choice something that happens when you do something wrong like eat too many pies.
c] When the 'fat' tire of being ridiculed, loose weight and conform - the majority will hoop and holler and congratulate them. Can Redheads really conform when body hair is the most contentious issue.
The current Gingerism debate on Redheads dying their hair is whether that is conforming, or escaping from majority sniping, bullying - does it depend on how bad it gets - how isolated you are within the majority group?
I dye my hair not because I don't like it but because if I don't, the majority continue to kid themselves they are sharing a joke with me - and that it is OK for them to carry on?
I don't mind at all if you disagree - I like a good debate - maybe some of your thoughts have never occured to me - let me have them. madasahatar
