I truly don't understand why red hair is so offensive to so many in the UK. What is the reasoning behind it? I hate to sound ignorant, but I just don't understand why "gingers" would be persecuted.

I, too, always adored red hair. I went red myself for a while, but just feel more like myself as a blonde. I kinda have a thing for redheaded guys, too.
