I got a lot of comments about being a redhead today. Random dude in the parking lot, guy (do you even go here?) on the quad. Then that man/woman? with a protest poster that read "The Revolution is YouTube." I yelled back that I'm already there. Is there some sort of stigma against redheads except that they have no souls? And as Katie the roommate pointed out, I'm not a natural redhead so it's not like I don't actually have a soul; I just wish I didn't. Honestly, though, I'm curious--why do redheads get so many comments? It's not like brunettes ever get the occasional "Whoaaaaa, girl, that is some brown hair on your head." Googlin' time.
According to Raising-Redheads.com, people may think that I'm hot-tempered, a free spirit, and/or sexually aggressive. Seriously, do people honestly subscribe to these kind of stereotypes over a hair color? Because that is completely ridiculous. Am I missing anything here? What stereotypes have you heard about gingers?
PS: I wrote Sanne's BEDA for Saturday. Read it if you'd like some mush.
