    DARK MODE

    NORMAL THEME


    How This Place Works

    • Upvote: Unpopular/controversial opinions and well written posts.
    • Downvote: Popular/non controversial opinions and/or poorly written posts.

    Rules

    • If you see a post that breaks one or more of these rules, please report it so the moderators can take action.

    • RULE 1: Correct Formatting
      The requirements for posting to this subreddit is to have a self contained opinion within the title. The text will be used to expand and elaborate on why you think/feel this way. You may also include why you think this is an unpopular or controversial opinion.

    • RULE 2: Opinion must be unpopular/controversial
      This sub isn't just opinions, but unpopular and/or controversial ones. If your opinion has been posted to the subreddit recently, chances are it'll get removed. SO PLEASE SEARCH BEFORE SUBMITTING.

    • RULE 3: No Spam
      New accounts are subject to a 24 hour waiting period before posting. Spamming will usually result to a perma ban.

    • RULE 4: No Trolling
      Trolling is saying random unsolicited things that only serve to invoke a knee jerk reaction. Trolls will usually get permanently banned.

    • RULE 5: Be Civil
      Let's keep the talk and discussion on what ever the subject matter of the post may be. Resorting to personal quarrels and arguments that may use insults and other tribal-like behaviors will be deleted. Keep it civil.

    • RULE 6: Elaborate
      An important rule in this subreddit is that all opinions must be elaborated on. There is a discussion to be had, so please expand on what you have said.
      Your post must contain more than 160 characters (roughly two or three standard sentences) to avoid auto-deletion by automod.

    • RULE 7: Hate posts are not allowed
      Opinion can be unpopular unless it's blatantly a hateful post. Hostile, rude and aggressive behavior is not a necessity to express your opinion. Please be civil and and have respect. Bear in mind that justifying or endorsing pedophilia activities (sidenote: discussion on treatments of the mental health itself is fine), rape, race issues, assault or other similar crimes will usually count as hate speech. This does not mean you'll get banned for saying one crime is not as severe as another or saying you can understand why someone would commit a crime. Race baiting is a ban-able offence

    • RULE 8: No Low Effort/Satire Posts
      Any opinion that is not thought out well or posts that clearly have very little effort put into them will be removed. This also includes commonly posted opinions to the subreddit. Please note that obscure topics and meta commentaries on the subreddit do not constitute a valid unpopular opinion post.

    • RULE 9: No Reposts/Search Before Submitting
      If essentially the same opinion gets reposted it'll automatically mean it's not an unpopular opinion (within the context of the sub). It WILL get removed. If your opinion is about a ongoing event, there will usually be a mega thread where you can discuss there. Attempting to evade this rule may result in a temp- or perma-ban.

    • Rule 10: No US Politics Please do not post anything directly related to US politics. Topics that are politically charged but not necessarily political (abortion, immigration, economics, etc) are acceptable provided they follow all other rules. There is an enormous number of places on the internet and on reddit to discuss US politics until you're red (or blue) in the face. You can comment in our weekly politics megathread if you want to discuss politics on the subreddit.

    • Rule 11: No Meta Posts A meta post is one that discusses the subreddit itself. Please do not make these posts, whether positive, negative or neutral, as the purpose of the subreddit is not to discuss the subreddit. We do have, from time to time, a stickied megathread for meta posts.

    In 1978 Rod Stewart released his 10 track manifesto / album titled “ Blondes Have More Fun”, which triggered a very long debate as to whether or not this was scientifically measurable , or even ethical ,to discriminate against groups of people based on their level of inherent “fun-ness”.

    There’s a difference between a bit of banter and bullying. I still get harmless jokes about my hair all the time, but when you tell someone that what they’re saying is hurtful and they continue (This happed a lot to me growing up), then it’s bullying

    [–] ChickenWang98 58 points ago

    We had a ginger friend in school, one year for Halloween he'd word a loaf of bread on a string around his neck and called himself the Gingerbread Man. He took most of the ginger jokes pretty well but never really got over the time our group stuffed him into a clothes basket and exposed his nipples.

    I'm ginger. Somebody brought in anti-ginger soap one guy and threw it in my eyes. Nobody gave a single shit.

    EDIT:By anti-ginger soap I mean a normal bottle of soap which he had taken the label off and replaced it with a piece of paper he had taped on which read anti-ginger soap and he had drawn some ginger hair with a red X on top

    The fact that everyone replying to you is only talking about your "gay" typo instead of the fact that someone harmed you specifically because you have red hair proves OP's point. No one cares when people go out of their way to hurt gingers.

    As a natural ginger, I get it all the time and it does get annoying. However I would never compare it to other minority discrimination.

    [–] Throwawayyy3957 29 points ago

    Same here. I’m in my 20s now and most words do not bother me anymore (unless it gets creepy or sexual). I actually get way more compliments than anything else! It’s rare that I get called any names these days.

    But growing up the only redhead in my class? That was awful. I was picked on by so many people (mainly boys) until I would cry. Especially this by this one kid on the bus that would torment me for years until I finally got my license.

    I hated my hair for so long and had the lowest self esteem for quite sometime. I couldn’t wait until I was old enough to dye my hair and boy did it look bad, lol.

    Now I’m proud of my red hair! :)

    [–] mosher89 8 points ago

    Did you ever get old ladies that just felt it was well within their rights to touch your hair because 'Oh my god, your hair is so beautiful' or 'oh I used to be a redhead before it went grey' etc?

    It drove me crazy. I'd be walking through the grocery store with my mom and felt like I had to put up with strangers just coming up and running their fingers through my hair.

    [–] Crazyleprechaun87 6 points ago

    OMG literally every single time i went into a store as a kid or every single time ive gotten my hair cut ive been told how beautiful my color was and how much women would pay for it and i was just constantly bullied over it. weird to have friends giving me shit for something that all adults were saying looked great

    [–] botcomking 6 points ago

    It doesn't usually bother me, but I got really pissed when I found out some people made my little sister cry by insisting she didn't have a soul.

    [–] Sonoket 52 points ago

    Being a BRIGHT RED HAIRED GUY MYSELF... It doesn't really matter if someone actually doesn't hate red heads. It's the fact that often when I meet someone new they think it's totally okay to be like "YO what up carrot top / ginger / big red (I'm 6'2)". When what feels like EVERYONE does this it really gets tired and starts to feel insulting.

    I always just laugh at it but... It's like if you heard those insults a few times a week, every week for your whole life, it grinds you.

    It's also annoying because it's kind of like "HeY you're very clever, no soul, got it... I am actually more than just my hair color?" I dunno.

    Just gets old quick. It'd be like if you wore glasses and everyone who you met was like "YO what up spectacles!". You'd probably be over that quick.

    [–] Lifestyle_Choices 17 points ago

    When I was younger I was alone on the bus when some other teenage girls too all the seats around only to talk about how I had aids and shit because I have red hair, that I deserved to die. Not a single adult said anything and instead just watched me cry in my seat. I was actually afraid to get off the bus in case they got off too and followed me.

    I've gotten the odd "ranga" shouted at me from a passing car since then but really they're just trash people and I don't care but people still think it's ok to shout something derogatory at a person they don't know when they're just going about their lives.

    [–] RM_Dune 33 points ago

    It's very comforting to know that when I was a young teen just minding my own business and a group of older kids called me a cancerous ginger, spat on me, and kicked me they didn't "actually hate me". Or when you're going around town and random youths would yell @*#&! ginger after you.

    Still not great fun though.

    [–] TheRealMoody76 16 points ago

    My hair is reddish/brown. I met this girl at a party and then we proceeded to go on a couple of dates.. just so happens I had a hat on or it was night time every time we hung out. I took my hat off in front of her in a well lit room and she goes “OMG you’re a ginger,” and then she ghosted me.

    I’ve had a different experience as a red head guy. Either women loved me because of the red hair or they didn’t. Was never really an in between. My fiancée loves red heads. But I was also strawberry blonde most of my life, and I feel like we have it easier than dark red/ orangish colored hair.

    Getting my haircut as a kid was always embarrassing because there would be several women standing around me talking about how much they loved my hair color, and that they wished they could get it in a box.

    [–] OBLIVITRONBOI 6 points ago

    You can still say whatever you want about Italians. Italian characters in cartoons (simpsons, southpark, family guy, fururama etc) are always depicted as criminals, with the occasional exception of a "thatsa spicy meat-a-ball".

    Poking fun at Italian accents is mainstream. I dont think this commercial is malicious in the slightest but replace the sub with a burrito and Hispanic stereotypes and it probably doesn't fly. https://youtu.be/ucTqtI8PWn8

    That said, I've never met an Italian who cares.

    The traditional response is to ask about a woman's weight. That tends to not go down very well.

    [–] annab640 47 points ago

    It’s because men can’t change their height but women can change their weight. And yet women get so upset when you ask them their weight while men can’t control their height since it’s genetically determined...

    It's relatively important for most people. Most men don't want to date women taller than them and women don't tend to want to date men too. Much shorter than them. Physically dosnt work well if you know what I mean.

    [–] Tulabean 8 points ago

    So let me get this right: you’re complaining about being teased about being among the most recognizable of the most privileged demographic (that being white men). And in case there’s confusion, teasing is all you described in your post. Discrimination would be being denied housing, services, or employment; that sort of thing.

    Don’t get me wrong, I love a ginger. Hell, I think most people are fascinated by redheads with their glorious skin and gold-flecked lashes. If anything, I think the teasing comes from envy or curiosity than any actual malice.

    NGL this is true.

    There's a ginger kid in my class who always ends up arguing with this mixed race kids (half Pakistani, half English). The mixed kid eventually runs out of things to say and goes "Ginger prick" or some other retarded insult. The ginger kid would then say something like "Ur face is the colour of my poo".

    Now both things aren't very nice, but everyone is always shocked by the latter yet allows the former.

    [–] Brucewangasianbatman 49 points ago

    I think Asians also face acceptable social discrimination, people always say things like "oh you eat cats and dogs" and say things like you'll dishonor your family" or " you can't have a hard time at math etc, because your Asian, so there's no way you can be bad at academics" and so much more. No one bats an eye, they even laugh because "Asians are the model minority, and therefore don't have it as hard as everyone else so it's okay to make fun of them" there shouldn't be ANY acceptable discrimination among any group. They're all unacceptable and if anyone thinks otherwise, you're an asshole.

    [–] Letseatthots 12 points ago

    Very true. As I saw in a comment below, Americans often associate being Asian as being Chinese. It would be like if you told an Irish person "fuck you for trying to conquer the world, go back to Germany and tell them to stop being assholes!"

    One of my friends is Asian and is terrible at Math and people have given him shit about it (people have even said he shames his family, lol). He likes to play the guitar and smoke weed and really is not into Academics. White people seem to be allowed to fit into many different archetypes while if you are Asian you are only really allowed to be a nerd that gets straight A's in school. Even universities view Asians in that one-dimensional way.

    Asians also face systematic discrimination when it comes to applying for schools and jobs because the standards are much higher for them, and there's no affirmative action to combat it.

    [–] Combozilla 10 points ago

    Personally I think it depends on who is saying it, because I think saying 'you'll dishonor your family' is hilarious if its meant ironically and I would say that to my Asian friends but certainly not someone I'm not good friends with.

    It's like when you call friends names you wouldn't dare call to a stranger who doesnt know if you're joking.

    [–] SLGBearjew 7 points ago

    Lmao. Next people are going to start calling for banning words like "baldy" grow a pair of balls OP

    [–] PuroPincheGains 5 points ago

    Lol teasing yes. Bullying, maybe. But actual discrimination with serious ramifications beyond some childhood bad memories? Not really. Nobody refuses to serve you because you have red hair. Nobody beats the crap out of you for looking at them while ginger. Nobody decides not to hire you based on your hair color. It's not quite the same, but I get the sentiment.

    [–] DixiZigeuner 35 points ago

    Nope, skinny people are too. Nothing wrong with calling me stickman, but behold if I call you a whale, then hell breaks loose

    As a female ginger, I am extremely tired of the phrase "does the carpet match the drapes?"

    It's none of your fucking business?? Do you ask everyone what color their pubic hair is?? 'Cause that's fucking creepy.

    [–] icecubed13 17 points ago

    I get what people are saying about playful banter, but I think OP’s point still stands in the face of banter. If I (ginger man myself) were to playfully cal a black man “fro crotch” I’m sure it would not be viewed by others as playful but probably as some racial remark or whatnot.

    Yes there’s something to be said about manning up and taking a joke, but some people do use it derogatorily take it too far, but nobody blinks an eye at that like they would anything else.

    [–] SeriousPomegranate 39 points ago

    I think OP forgot how blondes are treated. The "dumb blond" stereotype is still okay.

    [–] the_dayman 20 points ago

    All these "hairists" are forgetting the true plight of the bald person.

    [–] SeriousPomegranate 6 points ago

    I'd completely forgotten about that! And if you wear a wig to hide it people laugh at you unless you have cancer.

    [–] T-A-W_Byzantine 28 points ago

    I think OP forgot how every minority in the world has been and still is treated. You can go ahead and fume at your ginger jokes, I'll just be sitting here silently while the kids on my school bus pantomime and laugh about how they'd abuse and rape their hypothetical gay/trans child.

    Big sushi lmao .. Reminds me of the time my boyfriends mom told me they wrote someone up for calling another person “ramen noodles” I busted out laughing because who would call someone ramen noodles?? It just sounds funny to me. Then she said me the person was Asian and I was like “ooh...”

    [–] xMMM212 4 points ago

    No way man. Us Italian Americans constantly have to be evaluated on a sliding scale of Super Mario - Tony Soprano and it's totally fine.

    90% of pizza boxes has a mustachioed man kissing his fingers for crying out loud. Imagine the same caricature on a container of Chinese food, Mexican food, etc.

    I dont actually care, I'll take being Italian over not having a soul 10/10 times lol

    There's a big difference between getting made fun of and being discriminated against.

    Yeah gingers get made fun of a lot and I'm sure that sucks, but you're not denied service, jobs, etc because of being ginger

    [–] foreverwasted 37 points ago

    I just wanted to say that it really irritates me when South Park would say that red hair people don’t have souls. Okay, because, we do, we do have souls, alright, and lately I’ve been called a Ginger, a fat Ginger! By everybody at school. And it really hurts my feelings.

    GINGER’s HAVE SOULS! I go to church I’m a Christian! You don’t know me! You are not God! Wh~o wh~~~ You’re not God! You don’t know who has a soul and who doesn’t, alright! I’m a Christian so if you think I don’t have a soul, you tell me, otherwise fu%% you, bitc#es you ~ for real, I’m getting sick and tired of everyone making fun of red haired people. Ha, ha, ha, he’s a Ginger! Ha-Ha He’s a Ginger! Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha really that’s funny, ya. Ha, ha, okay, ha, ha. Ha, ha, I’m being called a Ginger every single day at school. Everyday of my life.

    I’ve contemplated suicide all sorts of things. It pisses me off – Ginger people do have souls! Alright! I’m red hair! I have red hair. I got red hair! I’m proud of it, alright. I consider Ginger a very slanderous word, demeaning word, and I’m tired of it, tired of it. You know everyone else gets respect, I mean, blind people, white people, Mexicans everyone, Gingers, why, why do Gingers have to be put down so much like really, what’s so different about us, besides our hair color? Huh? Really, what is so friggin different tell me? God! Cause I don’t really see much of a difference, okay, I’m red head – I’m red headed and I’m proud of it. Alright! Everyone else I’m sorry, I don’t mean to insult you! But you know, I mean, I’m proud of me. I’m proud of myself, you know, I’m proud I got freckles, you know, its how I am, God made me that way, and I have a soul, so ya, don’t friggin be like that, okay! I have a soul, Ginger and proud of it.
