Police are looking for a possible connection between 2 women recently murdered.
Sometimes I wonder when I see women who dye their hair red. It’s like who would really sign up for such abuse. Having natural red hair is not something to be bought because redheads have gone through a lot to earn their red hair. The feisty nature of a red comes through by years of teasing and bullying. Plus, the hot sexy nature of red-haired women will be missing from the box. Why do you think Marilyn Monroe was so sexy? She was a redhead who dyed her hair blonde.
As a redhead guy, I could go on for hours about how I have been treated badly by society in general. Sure I might complain about how terrible things happened to me and I would not stop any other redhead from going on a rant so please do if you feel the need- I’m listening.
For myself, I would not trade in any of those assaults, jabs, insults, and abuse because it has made me who I am today. It takes a lot to survive in today’s world and I would be disadvantaged if I had not gone through all that. Plus I have come to realize that those non-redheads are just jealous anyways!
Growing up as the red-haired stepchild, literally, was tough. My own mom didn’t even like me. Neither of my parents had red hair. Getting called carrot top was the norm and it sucked. I would get blamed for everything and I was treated as a bad child even though I was a good. Other parents, teachers, priests, I guess people of authority looked down on me. I remember getting kicked out of class anytime someone talked to me. I spent most of the year in my desk in the hall looking in through the door. I became good friends with the principal.
The allergies started when I was 13 and they only worsened until I discovered that they were caused by milk and wheat. Acupuncture was the best treatment of all. In addition, I have a sensitive digestive system, its called irritable bowel syndrome now. They did not have a label for attention deficit disorder back when I was growing up. Good thing as I would not want to be put on any mental medication. Who knows what that would have done? I would spend the whole day mesmerized on the first day of snow. Every time I went to the dentist, I would really get high on the laughing gas although the drilling was still painful. I talk to people who never feel any pain at the dentist. Must be nice.
The negative attention stopped when I let my hair grow out. Everyone thinks I look like Sammy Hagar. He can’t look that bad. Maybe all redheads are related. Strangely, I find red haired women attractive, but have never wanted to date one. I wonder if its genetic. I love the exotic type.
I began to notice that other people liked to tell me their problems. I was watching a Dr Who episode where the Amazon lady states, “When you get a cut, look for the man with the most scars.” I guess that relates to me. Being a redhead makes you somewhat jaded and tough. I have the most wry sense of humor and its helped me stay mentally afloat. In my ’30’s I began to have shamanic experiences and have since been on a spiritual journey in that direction. Must have been the laughing gas. Yes I do feel like I am from another planet because I just can’t get over all this need for the material satisfaction. Personally I love to be in the mountains surrounded by large pine trees in the whispering winds with a spring of bubbling water nearby or by ocean watching the endless waves as the setting sun simmers and shimmers.
People with red hair have many different traits than the general population. I wanted to list my traits and see how they compare to other redheads. Here goes:
- It is so funny watching myself getting so crazy and all over the place making this website
- Curly locks
- Food sensitivities

- I don’t think I am affected by SAD-seasonal affected disorder-as much as others because I like all kinds of weather- or maybe I am

25 years ago, I was delivering mail along my walking route in San Diego, when I was stopped by an elderly lady who still had striking red hair despite her age. I was about to hand over her mail when suddenly she grabbed me by the arm, looked me intently in the eye and exclaimed:
“Did you know that being a red-head makes you different from everybody else?”
“Ah, no, I didn’t know that,” I stammered, taken aback by the purposeful address.
She went on, as though passing on a secret legacy, “Did you know that you fall into a 5% category, where doctors don’t know what medications will do to you?”
I shook my long red curls “no”, but as I thought about it, I began to realize I did notice that many things affected me differently, that I was more sensitive to medications, food, my environment, and other people than the average man. From that moment I was on a quest to discover what it truly meant to be a red-head.
This quest has taken me to subjects such as the Tuatha Danaan, Red-haired Egyptian Pharoahs, and Red-haired Mummies in China to Famous Redheads such as Queen Elizabeth and Mark Twain to Environmentally Sensitive Redheads and Redheads with Magical Abilities.
This site is an invitation to all gingers to join me on that journey!
