I well remember the ‘Shock, Horror’ headlines when it was discovered Keith Chegwin had ‘ginger’ pubes. I remember too the totally negative press ‘ginger’ Tim ‘ginger’ got mostly for being ‘ginger’ in ‘Big Brother’ and they never forgot to mention in any report that he was ‘ginger’. When that well renowned raconteur and wit Jade Goody was her phenomenally funny self apoplectically screeched that she’d turned into a ‘ginger minger’ nobody batted an eye which was in stark contrast to the international furore caused by calling a darker skinned minority woman a ‘POPPADOM’. Does life reflect art or does art reflect life. Chesney got the ‘ginger’ this week, the last time someone’s hair colour was mentioned on Corrie Shaun made a ‘ginger refuge’ remark to Gary and round that time Rita made clear she was NOT a natural redhead Ha! Ha! Hee! Hee! Though I rarely watch Eastenders I tuned in to find Bradley berating himself as a ‘ginger failure’. It does seem imperative to mark out ‘ginger people’ as different, as not normal and hair colour must always be mentioned lest we forget we’re only ‘ginger’. The obligatory pubic question must be asked of every ‘ginger’. Every day some reference must be made about a ‘ginger’ person’s ‘gingerness’ it would seem. I’ve been a recluse for four years because I’m told I ‘IMAGINE’ that British society is obsessed with bringing ‘ginger hair’ into every conversation, AM I PARANOID or do I see the world as it is? Recently Loose Women were sharing some ‘ginger’ laughs even though there wasn’t a redhead in sight. On the subject of policitical correctness, yes it has gone mad. We can’t have Black jokes, Poppadom jokes, Mahatma Coat jokes, Muslim jokes, Jewish jokes, Irish jokes etc., because the destructive power of humour is well accepted and documented, however the bigoted British bully can and does unremittingly pick on the smallest global minority, the most highly visible, easy target, that does not have the political voice or power of these other so called minorities. I remain bored, rigid and kept insane and obsessed by the bigoted, British bullies obsession for talking about and laughing at ‘ginger hair’ even though I’ve rarely been outside for four years. If it is my imagination – my paranoia – how can I quite so readily quote all these examples of ‘gingerism’. Even if you are driven from mainstream society like I have been to escape ‘gingerism’ there is no real escape but death but l’ve been a bit of a ‘ginger failure’ at suicide. I guess I’ll just have to suffer until the bland bollocked, mousey minged, funny, clever majority bore me to death with ‘ginger’.
