Killing yourself because you’ve become ginger is taking things a bit too far

Surely being ginger isn’t so bad that you’d kill yourself over it?

However that is supposedly what has happened in the UK after a woman feared she was turning into a ginger.

A young office worker who had been suffering from anxiety and stress killed herself after becoming anxious about her hair colour, an inquest heard.

Frances Warren, 26, was concerned that her long blonde hair had turned a shade of ‘yellow’ or ‘ginger’ and was desperate for it to be fixed.

Miss Warren had seen her GP a couple of weeks earlier reporting symptoms of anxiety and stress and had been offered anti-depressants and had referred herself to a counselling service.

She was so anxious about the colour of her hair, she texted her hairdresser 50 times requesting her for help, an inquest at Avon Coroner’s Court heard.

I can understand day walkers wanting to hide their true soul-less existence but killing yourself over turning ginger is just hopeless.  Read more »

The March of the Daywalkers

It is kind of like the Zombie Apocalypse, except these people aren’t dead, just soul-less and day walkers marching in a Ginger Pride parade.

How does someone without a soul have pride?

GINGER FACTS & MYTHS

GINGER FACTS & MYTHS

1. Red hair is seen on the heads of only four percent of people. Most of these exist in the U.K., the Republic of Ireland, and Australia.

2. There is a belief that redheads are prone to industrial deafness. This actually could be true as the melanocytes are found in the middle ear.

3. A 2002 study found that redhead are harder to sedate than any other people requiring twenty percent more anesthesia. Inadequate doses cause people to wake up during surgery and have increased recall of procedures.

4. In the late 16th century, the fat of a redheaded man was an essential ingredient for poison.

5. The Egyptians regarded the color as so unlucky that they had a ceremony in which they burned red-headed maidens alive to wipe out the tint.

6. An Irish judge in 2001 fined a man for disorderly conduct stating “I am a firm believer that hair coloring has an effect on temper and your coloring suggests you have a temper.”

7. Redheads have always been thought untrustworthy. Judas is most always depicted as a redhead displaying the prejudice against red hair.

8. Adolph Hitler reportedly banned the marriages of two redheads as he feared their children would be “deviant offspring”.   Read more »

Ginger Oxygen Thief Receives Natural Justice

UK Police have released CCTV footage in an effort to track down the attacker of a soul-less day walker with a blaze cap ginger hair who was socked in the kisser to award him a medal seek justice for the attack:

Alex Kosuth-Phillips had been out celebrating his 23rd birthday on February 24 last year, when he was attacked outside a takeaway pizza shop in Selly Oak, Birmingham at just after 1am.

CCTV footage shows the moment the sales assistant was floored by a single punch, which broke his jaw in two places, and left him unable to eat solid food for three months.
Kosuth-Phillips said he was targeted because of his red hair: “All I remember is walking into the pizza parlour and there were two of them [the attacker and his friend] sat on the left hand side.

“One of them said something to my girlfriend, I asked what he said and he started swearing, becoming abusive and mocking my ginger hair.

“I said I didn’t need it and I was leaving. All I remember was opening the door and the next thing I knew I was in hospital, where I had to have two lots of surgery.”
Detective Constable Louise Corcoran, from West Midlands Police CID, said: “This was an unprovoked assault which left an innocent man knocked out cold and requiring surgery.

“The offender walked into the shop and made an offensive comment to him before hitting him in the face.

“It’s had a lasting effect on the victim, who has been left physically and emotionally scarredby the assault.  source

The attack was completely unnecessary and unjustified. A better suggestion to deal with day walkers is to send them to Palmerston North, or trade them for ginger beer. 

Jail too tough for Ginga Diddums

According to the article, a poor little ginger headed boy is being picked on in jail.

A legal adult scum burglar was bad enough to get a jail sentence (that takes some doing!), and the fact he doesn’t like being there may just be something called consequences.

Jordan Terrance Marsh, 18, has been at Manawatu Prison since early last month after being arrested on five burglary charges.

One of those burglaries was at the Palmerston North house of 71-year-old Margaret Storm.

Ms Storm turned up to the Palmerston North District Court yesterday and was initially reluctant to face Marsh.

But that changed after she heard him read a couple of letters he had written saying how sorry he was and how he sits alone in prison thinking about his family and his victims.

‘‘Just yesterday a Nomad gang member spat in my face because I ate my breakfast and didn’t give it to him,’’ Marsh said.

‘‘Prison has been really hard for me being a little red-headed white boy.’’

Hand me a tissue already.

Ms Storm then faced Marsh and said she felt better for hearing him speak.

‘‘I hope you make the most of it because you have a long life ahead of you and I’d like to see you succeed,’’ Ms Storm told him.

Judge Barbara Morris decided to sentence Marsh to seven months’ home detention for that burglary, which happened on October 15, and order him back to court in March to check on his progress.

He will then be sentenced on the other matters.

As Marsh left the dock, he waved to Ms Storm, but she was not looking.

“[A] little red-headed white boy” better use this chance to sort his shit out.  If not, the  judge should stick him back in jail for a very long time.

 

They still have no souls

Petty ginger whingers have had their complaint about an ad for ginger beer upheld. Apparently it is offensive to mock soul-less ginger people:

An advertisement that invited parents to trade in their unwanted red-headed children for ginger beer has been ruled discriminatory and offensive.

The posters for Hakanoa ginger beer showed a mother abandoning her red-headed child at a dairy in exchange for a six-pack of ginger beer, with the headline: “Swap your ginger for six.”

The ad said “no one really wants a ginger” and encouraged people to trade them for “something you really want, a delicious six pack of Hakanoa Ginger Beer”.

The campaign ran for a week from late July before it was pulled following a flurry of complaints.

The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has now ruled the ad was likely to cause serious and widespread offence.

What rubbish, gingers are a tiny proportion of the population, universally loathed and avoided…there is no way there would be widespread offence.

Anyway they have no souls so I can’t see how they could be offended.

As predicted, the soul-less are outraged

NZ Herald

I said yesterday that the soul-less gingers would be outraged…and so it comes to pass:

Parents who are “unfortunately cursed enough” to have “ginger spawn” are being told to trade them for free ginger beer.

Local company Hakanoa Ginger Beer’s campaign has caused outrage, with an anti-bullying helpline saying the campaign’s aim is to boost sales based on controversy.

“If they’re consciously using the pain of some people in order to market a product, I really think that’s crossing a certain line,” Youthline chief executive Stephen Bell said.

I note though that even the anti-bullying people say there is pain in being a ginger….goes without saying when you are soul-less.

Still Hakanoa has gained millions in extra advertising thanks to the “outraged”
