Ha Ha - What an awesome thread - As a life long ginger whinger, i can assure you that all the abuse i took growing up only made me impervious to abuse as an adult...
As soon as I reached that point... my hair started thinning, and turning grey.

In my completely unbiased opinion , gingers are the most charming, clever, talented, and damn sexy people on the face of the earth.
you think ?
I'd say they're either liked or disliked but rarely are forgotten, even when they'd like to be.

You learn to answer back it does help build character.

Ha Ha - What an awesome thread - As a life long ginger whinger, i can assure you that all the abuse i took growing up only made me impervious to abuse as an adult and honed my after school scrapping skills down to such a fine art that i now have a look that says 'don't mess with me'....very handy for chasing idiot drunks away from my missus outside the pub on a Saturday night!

Have to admit though, that Youtube is doing my race no favours...i suggest South Park The Ginger Cartman Episode as essential homework for fans of this thread...
It's funny here in Switzerland, gingers didn't get any abuse, at least I didn't.... untill that South Park episode came out....

Simply because there aren't that many around.
.... and I wouldn't try knocking one around anyway, we're hard to handle

Thats not true... They certainly tried to throw me in the skip bin when I was at school. Probably didn't help that I was ginger AND the son of a teacher! Luckily I was tall enough quite early so they usually didn't manage.

Re: Gingers

I don't understand it.....ginger is another haircolour. I mean the light fun poking, fine, fair enough, same as people with blonde hair, but proper abuse?? For being ginger?? it's ridiculous! I have a dark auburn hair colour, and when I was at school in particular, I had full cans of drink thrown at me, (for being ginger....because apparantly that's ok?!) got beaten up by a group of boys who were about 3 years older than me.....for being a ginger. Drives me crazy! I love my haircolour, and I don't really care whether other people like it.....I guess people have to poke fun at some people, and I was always the brunt of the jokes.....

So we stick out in a crowd.. Who cares ?
I certainly don't. Stick up for yourself.
I got teased a lot too, but honestly nobody really messed with me as kid because I was very much a tomboy.
Chin up, calm n' steady, no excuses and no explanations to anyone.. ever!
....and smile
