When it is suggested that ‘gingerism’ is the same as ‘racism’ the idea is met with loud guffaws – which is one of the problems i.e that ‘Ginger hair is viewed as a complete and total joke – like the people who are born with it and that ‘ginger’ people can be treated as ‘amusing little things’ for the majority to rag-on at all times.
The REDheads claim for parity with the massive Black minority is viewed as political correctness gone mad because society does not view us as equal.
It is acceptable, obligatory even to call REDheads ‘ginger b*stards’ yet totally unacceptable to call a Black person a ‘Black b*stard’. To call a Black person ‘blackie’ or make any reference to their colour in a nickname would be ‘racist’[nobody tells Black people “if you were proud of/ comfortable with, your colour you wouldn’t mind being call Blackie].
It appears necessary, even obligatory, to call a REDhead ‘ginger’ and ‘ginger’ must always play a large part in every nickname.
REDheads should be recognised as diverse and individualistic as any Black person as any other person whatever their colour of birth.
It is only ‘racists’ who feel the need to keep raising the issue of someone being Black - other people just accept them as individuals. It is only ‘racists’ for whom a persons ‘Blackness’ is an issue that must be raised, equally it is only those who feel uncomfortable with REDheads who must mention their ‘gingerness’. It is only those who find ‘Blackness or Gingerness’ somewhat less than acceptable who need to constantly raise the subject of colour.
Anyone with half a brain cell knows that REDheads wear matching head and body hair – SHOCK, HORROR [just like normal people] how FREAKY, how FUNNY they feel it necessary to say with what they consider, sharp - but is NEVER, ORIGINAL wit.
It’s possible that MOUSEY MINGERS find the ‘Get your kit off let me laugh at your body’ sexual advance a turn on but it doesn’t work for me. Lets remember that ‘ginger’ is just an accompaniment to ‘tosser’ w*nker’ ‘b*stard and thus cannot be considered in any way complimentary, amusing, or a turn on.
REDheads should not be dismissed as just a hair colour just as it is not acceptable to dismiss Black people as just a skin colour.The colour of a person’s birth does not define who they are as individuals. The colour of a persons birth, whatever that colour is, should not limit and restrict them, should not be the sole focus of attention, should not condemn them to a lifetime of hate and/or ridicule and contempt
