Red Heads: 2 Distinct Types

Angie Everhart was on the Kardashian's the other night and her appearance got me to thinking (1) Thank God for gorgeous natural red heads, its super models like her that give my breed a good name. And (2) There is a real distinct difference between the "pretty ones" and the "gingers" and we all shouldn't be grouped into one category.

First: Red hair occurs naturally on approximately 1–2% of the human population. It occurs more frequently (2–6%) in people of northern or western European ancestry, and less frequently in other populations.  Red hair appears in people with two copies of a recessive gene onchromosome 16 which causes a mutation in the MC1R protein (source Wikipedia).

That means I'm special (and not in the way my bother use to make fun of me), more special than all you poo and pee heads with brown and blonde hair.  How normal and plain you are - Boring!

Second: I never understood how my minority-haired group got such a bad rap, where did this "ginger" harassment come from?  Not all of us should be considered "ginger", we're not all soul-less and vampire-like, like described on urban dictionary. I'm pretty sure I have a soul (last time I checked) and I'm definitely not vampire-like.  Like a previous post, I'm the tannest red head you've ever seen so that myth is totally debunked. 

I personally think there should be two separate and distinct groups, just like brown and brunette.  There should be red and ginger.
