Writer Illustrates Gingerism

American writer June Thomas’s article discusses the second season of British TV series Downton Abbey- which includes an example of gingerism. This is exemplified in a quip toward redheads Ethel and Mrs. Patmore.

“And given the Brits’ attitude to redheads if I were Ethel, I'd be asking Mrs. Patmore if she has anything in her pantry that also doubles as a hair dye.”
