Nature’s Ginger Babies

As I was sorting through photos I’ve taken over the past year, I started noticing a trend.  Not only do I tend to find red heads great subjects for photos, I tend to take a lot of shots of other gingers.  “Nature’s gingers,” if you will.  Looking at these other forms of gingers, made me wonder:  Is there discrimination against gingers of other species like there is against human gingers in some parts of the world?  Are they looked down upon or thought of as inferior in some way purely based on the color of their hair/fur/plumage?  In an effort to get to the bottom of this question, here is a quick and completely unscientific look at red heads in nature.

Let’s start with the bird world.  Surely, there’s some discrimination against red heads there.

Here’s the Cardinal.  Nope. One of the most beloved birds in North America.  BECAUSE of it’s gorgeous red plumage.

The Woodpecker perhaps?  They did make a cartoon about one.  Woody Woodpecker.  But he was one of the most popular cartoon characters in history.

The Redhead duck? Nope. There is a brand of highly trusted, top quality sports gear named after this one.

Surely the parrot? Wait… Isn’t Jimmy Buffett’s entire empire built on his beloved “Parrot Heads?”

Ah, but humans are mammals, so this must be a mammal issue.

This is a Golden Lion Tamarin.  (Gosh, I wish this hair color came in a bottle!)  They are originally from Brazil and an endangered species.  According to Wikipedia, there are several conservation programs attempting to save this species.  Hmmm.  Wonder what the ginger-haters think of that?

Another ginger primate is this guy.  I’m not sure what breed he is, but frankly – red hair or not – he can do whatever he wants.

The Irish Setter?  Considered to be one of the most beautiful dogs ever bred (because of his gorgeous GINGER coat, I might add)? Disney movie, “Big Red?”  Don’t see ginger hatred here, do you?

Okay, let’s go to the infamous red fox.  They were hunted and hated, right? Um… but once killed, didn’t women drape themselves in the fox’s beautiful GINGER fur?  So it was because they like to eat the Lord’s pheasants that they were hated, not because they were red.

There you have the totally unscientific results of my red heads in nature query. My conclusion?  People who hate or discriminate against red headed people simply because of their hair color are insane.

Obviously, more testing is needed before I publish my report in the Journal Scientific.
