People make fun of ginger head because this hair color is comparatively different and unique. Black/brunettes/blond hair color is thought to be normal in Europe and many western countries. Anyhow, people make fun of everything they come across with. They say blonds are dumb, brunettes are no fun, and people with red hair are gingers. They do it just for the heck of it.

I personally don't understand why people make fun of people with red hair? I think red "ginger hair" is really unique and I love that it stands out from any other hair color! Brown hair and blonde hair are such plain colors and so original lol I should know imma blonde! But I mean really people,GROW UP all those hair colors specially ginger don't make the person out for who they really are its just genetics! And by the way I'm dating a ginger an I love his hair color and for who he REALLY is:)

I married a Ginger and I think he's the cutest man I have ever seen!!! People tend to dislike what is different and there aren't many redheads around, at least where I live. I think having red hair is special because it's so beautiful. And you can always look at it this way...if people didn't find red hair so pretty, you wouldn't be able to find that color in a bottle. Just look at the women who try to dye their hair red.

Human beings are very hurtful to those who do not conform to the majority groupings. They put labels around them to make out that those of a minority grouping of whatever are somehow inferior, less intelligent etc etc.      In other words humans love to down on those that are not in a majority.   But what the hecklers do not take into account is that ginger haired individuals ( for example) are as varied in their other human looks and qualities as are a dark haired person So look at it like this.      The scoffers are totally ignorant as well as hurtful.

Personally I love gingers. Most redhead I know are really cool and funny. I guess people make fun of them because the color is so radiant and it's really unique. I love red hair though.

I'm a red head and they used to call me things on the bus but everyone who ive met have said how lucky I am to have my colour hair. My advise would be to ignore it and if they ever say mean things then remember that your special. :p

We do people that take the piss out of people with ginger/red hair have to be such arse wholes and DxxK-hxxds can't they just stop taking the piss and just think why are they actually taking the piss out of a person with ginger hair, most people that do this are people with no souls and don't care who they hurt as long as it makes them feel good or trying to be cool to their mates.

People make fun of ginger's beacause other people aren't ginger and they're jealous! Ginger is a beautiful unique colour and I should know, I'm ginger! My best freind is aswell. People pay about £60 odd pounds to get they're hair dyed ginger! I find it quite offensive that supermarkets and shops don't send ginger hair dye! They only sell red. We're the same as others, it's just our hair genes!

Because it's a different colour and not many people have it, anyway people that make fun of it are just stupid idiots that have nothing better to do! I've got ginger hair and I love it and I always show it off to my friends and even they get jealous sometimes.

I'm a ginger and I think there is nothing wrong with it I know a lot of red heads and we are nothing like what people say we are, yes we do have souls no we do not have 'gingervitus' and we are not the devils children. The only reason we are called 'firery redheads' is because we have been bullied and tortured for years because of our hair colour, so we have to react to it. We are no different than anyone else.

The same people who make fun of 'gingers' would never make fun of a black person - society dictates that's not ok..  You also shouldn't make fun of a asian person, again, it's not ok.

The idiots who hate for no reason are the same people who never thought twice about about voting George W Bush in again.
