I have to admit
I find it quite ironic that people are implying that Rob is discriminating against ginger people in asking this question, when he himself is famously ginger. Lighten up people.

(For the record - I'm dark ginger myself)

Totally agree...
...I had no idea that such an innocuous topic (to me, anyway) would have such a histrionic effect on the masses.

Comparing it to racism, FFS - give me a break - as Reg D Hunter says, ginger isn't even a race, and barely a minority. There's plenty of issues out there to get on one about but this isn't one of them.

It may well not be a race
and to paraphrase Jason Manford, you can't compare how people perceive ginger people to the slavery of black people. Because if there's one group of people you don't want working on plantations in the Carribean sunshine, it's gingers.

But, is prejudice towards ginger people any less worse than mysogyny?

nobody in their right mind is claiming any form of racism...
at least I'm not... I just read most of these answers and think "what a bunch of fucking arse-clowns"

they're the same sort of people who consider Two Pint of Lager and a Packet of Crisps to be comedy gold

It's not racism
but it's still a form of prejudice.

I can see where you're all coming from...
...I suppose I don't understand the levels of vitriol associated with this from any angle because the difference between ginger-or-not-ginger doesn't really hold much meaning for me personally. Same can be said of actual racism as well.

See, I essentially class people in three groups; humans, chavs and corporate directors. Each is a unique breed in and of itself and they rarely ever mix well. I see no need for further sub-classification.
