In case you hadn't figured it out, I'm a natural redhead, so of course I'm interested in redhead-related things. For example, did you know that redheaded women are the smallest genetic minority in the world? And that redheads in general are less responsive to painkillers than other people? And that the underlying biology that leads to fair skin and red hair may also make us more susceptible to autoimmune disease? (Now, that last bit might make for an argument against redheaded sperm donors, but I doubt that actually entered anyone's mind.)
I remember getting teased a little bit for being a redhead ("carrot-top") in school, but I always liked being a redhead. I liked being distinctive. I suppose I have my mom to thank for that-- although she's a brunette, she always loved my red hair and tried to find me redheaded role models, real and fictional.
Speaking of famous redheads, the ironic bit about that article above is that the sidebar features a link to an Emmy slide show that features a photo of none other than the gorgeous, curvy, red-haired Christina Hendricks.
