Proud to be red   posted by Razib @ 1/29/2010 02:15:00 PM

A friend pointed me to this YouTube clip of a young red-haired man objecting to the term "ginger," and the opprobrium he's been subjected to since the South Park episode "Ginger Kids" popularized ideas such as the possibility that redheads have no soul. I assume the kid is joking. On the other hand, I have read that red-haired males are at some disadvantage on online dating sites, just like non-white males. Have any readers of the red persuasion ever felt put upon due to their rare pigment status?
