How would it be if I approached every brunette, every day with “Hi Browny, your hair’s exactly the shade of a load I dumped in the pan this morning” Would they appreciate the humour. Somehow I doubt it. I think they’d soon get fed up with being ‘shitheads’ it would soon start to wear them down.
All Brunettes are not considered to be the same, are not expected to think the same way, feel the same way or react the same way, yet society expects that all REDheads should react favourably when they are all expected to enjoy being the big joke.
Similarly if the nickname for blondes was not ‘Blonde Bombshell’ but was ‘Turnip Top aka vegetable head’ how many Mouser Mingers would make a beeline for the bleach?
Jokes against all other minorities are banned because there is a recognition of the destructive power of humour.
We all know what being the ass-end of a joke does for the ‘fat b*stard’, the bird with the big nose, the bint with the flat chest, or sagging breasts, or the lard ass.
Why are REDheads deemed so psychologically different from all other people that mockery and ridicule and ‘name calling’ will not adversely affect them?
Why is it presumed that having our ‘image’ turned into a big joke will not affect us as all other people are affected? That having our colour maligned, degraded and ridiculed will not affect us in the same way as Black people feel, when their colour is bought into disrepute?
There is no empathy. They do not ask “How would I feel always being the joke for a bunch of strangers to laugh at”
Personally I believe great sex starts in the mind and I’m surrounded by morons for can’t think beyond the size, or colour of body parts, frankly I find it pathetic.
I question all this with the full and certain knowledge that nothing will change because the same ‘Bland B*llocked, Mousey Mingers who bullied me at school are the same, now adult, psychologists, policy makers, psychiatrists and politicians who can’t see that there is a problem, as their right to ‘ginger nut, ginger tosser, F*cking ginger c*nt’ all REDheads ‘for a laugh’ is so deeply ingrained and entrenched their eyes and their minds are closed to any detrimental emotional, or mental health issues they cause.. That REDheads are a stereotypical joke has a beneficial effect on general society because they always have something to laugh at but being the stereotype, being the joke, has a seriously damaging effect on the individual. For any of you have read my cathartic, therapeutic ramblings and have realised that I am a certified loony, who’s thoughts and feelings are completely wrong, that I lack insight and capacity and should keep taking the mind-bending drugs supplied on prescription. They say I am obsessed which ,in effect, is true but it is societies obsession with calling me ‘ginger’ ginger’ ‘ginger F*cking ‘ginger’ names, that obsesses me. It ain’t my name, why do they keep doing it. Why? Why? Why? The question echoes into infinity………… and never any answers. Why? Psychiatrists tell me what I think and feel is wrong but nobody tells me why? Can You?
