I, like two percent of the world's population, am a redhead. I also have freckles. But despite 140million people on the planet having one or the other - or both - to some people it's still completely acceptable to see this as something inadequate. A weakness. Ugly, even. Or, according to the latest ads, an "imperfection".

Ginger. Aaaaargh! It is a term I have loathed for most of my life, since it became clear to me the stigma attached to the label. It is now arguably one of the words I most use in my life. What a turnaround. I decided to use it in my blog name, in an attempt to grasp my USP, and perhaps to finally, once and for all, embrace the millstone it has become around my neck.

Ten Things I've Learned Since Going Ginger

Alice Hart-Davis | Posted 14.03.2015 | UK Lifestyle
Alice Hart-Davis

I know 1-2 per cent of the population in the UK is meant to be redheaded, but it feels like less than that in London. In any gathering of people - in a crowded shop, on a train station concourse - when I stop and look around, there is very rarely anyone else with such a noticeable hair colour.

Emma Kelly

Ginger prejudice and the bullying of redheads (actually, just bullying in general) are still problems in the UK because society continues to treat red hair as a bit of a joke. Somehow, it's socially acceptable to make fun of gingers, both at school and in the media, and it's got to stop.

Coming Out Ginger

My mentality towards being picked on for being red headed was that it was a pretty weak thing to pick on someone for. Which frankly made it all the more frustrating. That I was bullied by another ginger made it all the worse.

Emma Kelly | Posted 14.06.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Emma Kelly

Whether they choose to embrace it or not, redheads will be called 'ginger' at some point in their lives (or lots of points in their lives, more likely). Copper, auburn, chestnut-red, golden, strawberry blonde; it doesn't matter. They all come under the same umbrella. You are a ginger. But you are also a redhead.

I Go Back to... Blonde

What's in a mane? It's been said that blondes have more fun; that redheads are fiery and feisty (loathsome word though that is, applicable only to women who have opinions); that brunettes are serious and hardworking; that women with black hair are untameable and carefree (given the rarity and ethnic profile of the black-haired woman, that's a stereotype that merits a longer discussion on race).
