    :lol: a Ginger having a blonde moment!

    i added Ginger, Gingers to the tags but it doesnt show in HUKD search -- why is that i wonder?

    What frustrates me is that it's acceptable for people to say 'I hate gingers' or 'all gingers are minging' or making sweeping negative generalisations about the characteristics of 'gingers'

    Replace 'ginger' with 'black people' and that's unacceptable

    tintern dont think that's what they said in that thread in fact some of us thought some are hot, and it is regardless of the hair colour. think it's amazing ...

    There were some similar comments - I wasn't quoting directly from that thread, I just find it hard whenever this debate comes up that for some reason it's acceptable to **** off a whole group of people because of the colour of their hair, when it's (rightly) unacceptable to do so because of the colour of peoples skin

    yeah and those people who said stupid things they got told off ... it's them who have a problem/issue of trying to thumb people into a predictable hole so i wouldnt engage too much with them if i were you. have enough in life ahead to think about

    i totally agree with this

    If you feel strongly about it, then you should discuss it in the "Feedback" forum.

    A wee bit playful banter is fine....(yes I was ginger - married a 'strawberry blonde' and have a ginger for a daughter) but regrettably the above statement is absolutely correct. I read the thread and most of the posts were in jest but some were pretty unnecessary too. A little bit of mutual respect doesnt spoil the fun guys.

    and yes i found some remarks highly offensive

    i always remember visiting cornwall as a kid and there seemed to be loads of gingers there i felt really at home lol

    The HUKD search doesn't search tags, from the looks of it! I can find the thread when I search for "gingers" - not for "ginger" as that word is not mentioned once in the post.
