Redheads going extinct hoax

Just wanted put a note here that I have two posts, here and here about a new incarnation of the “redheads are going to go extinct” meme. The current culprit is National Geographic Magazine. The only reason that I know about this is that there was a spike of traffic from message boards on my other blog attempting to debunk the story using some stuff I’d posted earlier.



  1. I never dye my hair blond.. what for? to advertise that Im ditzy and probably stupid?

  2. there are many blonds who aren’t ditzy or stupid!

  3. I was just kidding Razib, just offering another point of view on the “scarcity’ of blondes.  
    I know they are out there somewhere but probably dyed their hair darker… :) ( again, just kidding)  
    Also, just want to share this with you, its just so funny to me…

  5. Dolly Parton on being a dumb blonde: 
    “I know I’m not dumb, and I know I’m not blonde.”
