    Red is the new black...

    There's a funny, if sometimes disturbing, piece on gingerism by Ginny Dougary in the Times today. She's recently completed a choral piece entitled Ginger Chorale, the story of a bullied ginga (or gingette) who ends the song feeling triumphantly special, after hearing the rollcall of all the amazing redheads who have existed throughout history, and a paean to the wonders of diversity. I heard something similar on the radio recently: a boy who had just started wearing glasses was taunted by classmates on the novel - and inverted - basis that he didn't really need them and was just trying to be cool like Harry Potter...

    There's a media law angle here somewhere.
