F*ck The Haters! Why it's Awesome To Be Ginger

Red haired folk unite!

You are Unique!

Under 2% of the global population have been blessed enough to be born ginger. And of this 2%, it is thought that a quarter of gingers have died their hair. You are a genetic miracle, embrace it!

Redheads don’t go grey.

When you reach a certain age, you can bask in the fact that all of your friends are losing those golden highlights you once envied.

Good luck going bald bitches, I’m still a boss ass bitch!

In some cultures, people still believe that you’re a witch!


Americans and Asian’s love you!

If you are a fiery redhead, you are bound to have a few tourists ask to take a picture with you from time to time. If you are also Irish, CONGRATULATIONS you have just experienced what it’s like to be a celebrity.

Your body hair is blonde.

You could go a week without shaving your legs and no one would notice. You can head out on the town with legs like big foot and man, woman or beast would be none the wiser. PLUS, you get away with not bleaching/waxing your top lip half the time.

Easier for your friends and parents to spot  you in a crowd


You’re in the same category as famous legends

Examples: Ed Sheeran, Ron Weasley, Prince Harry


If you’re ginger, it’s probably likely that one or both of your parents are also ginger. The ginger gene is recessive so it’s got to be a strong ass underdog gene to make it past the blondes and brunettes. The ginger gene that you have is a genetic trait that has fought its way from your oldest ancestors to you. Be proud of your genes!

Always a hefty supply of factor 50+

On those hot days, when every factor 15, 20 and 25 are nowhere to be seen, factor 50+ stands tall and strong and waiting to be lathered upon your milk bottle complexion.


Every Irishman holds a deep sense of pride within their heart. Redheaded Irishman involuntarily advertise it.
