Do You Think Ginger-Haired Babies Should Be Swapped

Hi Guys!

Do you think mothers who have ginger-haired offspring should be allowed (legally) to swap them for non-ginger-haired babies in the maternity ward.

A) When no-one is looking?

B) Only when the nurses aren't there?

C) In full view of all (except the swapee's parent, of course)?

Please state A), B), or C) - with a brief reason.

Thank you All, and have a great day.

@mark noble,
all of the above, in the case of boys

many ginger (or red headed) girls are adorable

I never grasped this issue with Brits and red-heads. Is it bad luck or something. I think many red-heads are strikingly attractive. Hey, is this some Brit superstition?

@Ragman,
Hi Ragman,
It is not the ginger hair alone that is the problem. These seemingly innocent infants grow, and then they breed and produce more ginger-haired children. We have ways to rid the Uk of said vermin.............. We tell them there is a land of milk and honey (A Promised Land) accross the great divide (Atlantic).

And there you have it - The Birth of the US of A. Colonised by ginger folk from the 16th century on a quest to find said promised land.

And you thought we were thick......eh!

@mark noble,
I was told I had red hair when I was a baby and that it changed to brown before my toddlership.

Interesting idea you have here so I'll vote B. Those dang nurses can be the fly in the hummus of your plan.

@tsarstepan,
Hi Tsar!

Truth is: Your parents swapped their real child but couldn't get all the photos back. You're the substitute and your parents haven't got the guts to tell you.

Just live with it OK!

@mark noble,
I'll happily live with this notion though I'm wondering if I supposed to go to a wealthier family then I went to.

@djjd62,
My first love was a redhead.....I still remember his hair (down to his waist) falling over my breasts as we....well, TMI.

he was certainly oddish in his own way, but a darling and a worthy and wonderful citizen of the human race.

So there!!!

But really ginger (as opposed to auburn) haired WOMEN scare me a little.

This is because they appear more likely than average to have borderline personality disorders...which, oddly enough, appears to make some actual scientific sense.

I was looking at some data on male vs female pain thresholds...and redheads appear actually to have lower pain thresholds, on average, than the rest of us...eg they need more anaesthetic during surgery.

Given that it appears fairly likely that hyper-sensitivity can be inborn trait that renders us more likely to suffer ongoing damage under the emotional conditions that appear to create borderlines, redheads may really make up more than the statistical share of borderlines than you would expect!

I've read a lot of creepy articles about hate for 'gingers'.

I take it is anti irish, but I'm not sure of that, not living on your isles of delight.

So, from me, none of the above, with a further question, why do you seem to show approval of your choices? Do you agree with those choices?

Is this somehow meant for the humor tag?

Hi Tsar,

Nah! Just checked your ancestry - Some greek called onassis, I think.

Australia has a new prime minister.
She's a 'ranga"
She's Welsh
she's female.

This could be interesting.

@ossobuco,
Hi Osso,

Us here in the UK would NEVER hate the irish because of the colour of their hair. That is a terribly awful thing to think of us fun-loving, endearing, happy group of tight little islanders!

No! We hate the Irish just because they're Irish, nothing else.

Hi Dad,

She's Welsh, indeed. We sent her over there to reclaim what is rightly ours!!!
