A RELUCTANCE to embrace gingerness is fuelling anti-ginger prejudice, it has been claimed.
In a bid to reclaim the moral high ground, pro-ginger campaigners have urged everyone to drop the ‘dark blonde’ thing.
Ginger person Emma Bradford said: “Every workplace has at least one ginger denier, who reckons they are strawberry blonde.
“What does that even mean? Strawberries are pretty much crimson, certainly they are not the colour of Robert Redford’s hair.
“Just embrace the ginger. Sun tans are for reality TV idiots and the carrot is the one vegetable that pretty much everyone likes.
“Also it’s high time we reclaimed the term ‘ginger nut’ and used it as a positive. It’s a classic biscuit with the perfect amount of rigidity for dunking.
“There are lots of great ginger role models. Mick Hucknall, Lindsay Lohan, Ed Sheeran.
“Ok I admit those are patchy. But how about that bloke from Homeland? He’s cool plus he got to pork Claire Danes.”
24-year-old Stephen Malley admitted having described himself as ‘dark blonde’: “Eventually I had to tell myself that when a colour gets darker it does not also get more orange.”
