No, I didn't find some new scientific study to back this up but this was just the conclusion that a fellow redhead and I came to on our walk to work.
After passing two other redheads while leaving BART I ran into a third lovely redhead woman (30ish, gorg complexion, tall and beautiful long (jealous!) red hair) who complements me on my hair and we start chatting. For a good 10 blocks! We both discussed how everyone tells us that redheads are going extinct but we see them everywhere. And no we aren't talking about all those bad dye jobs 'cause we can spot a fake. We had such a good convo about how much we love being redheads. Now I don't mean to sound conceited but I have totally come to love my hair. It makes me stand out, it helps people to remember me (seriously I still think people from college would prob call me the Alpha Chi with red hair), it's a conversation starter and helps substantiate my love of being Irish!
So this post really has no point other than to say, "yay redheads!" because sometimes we can get made fun of. Probably because you're all just jealous ;) But it was lovely to talk to another redhead and she was definitely a kindred spirit (please tell me some red haired girl got this Anne of Green Gables reference!) And there are some pretty cool redheads out there: Ariel, the little mermaid, Anne of Green Gables, Nancy Drew...and now onto some real people: Prince Harry (my future hubs), Julianne Moore, me (hahah jk)
So whether you call us red, ginger, daywalker, gorgeous (thank you homeless man under the overpass - I do appreciate your compliments!) or whatever...I highly doubt we are going extinct.
(obv, I love being a redhead...it's in my blog title! It's reference to the little girl Charlie Brown was always in love with. He had good taste!)
