I am a ginger and I am done
With the jokes.
Here is a list of facts that I would like every one to know

Only I am allowed to call myself a ginger
I do not smell like copper
No I am not an umpaloompa
Nor am I a leprechaun
I am not related to all the other redheads in the world stop asking
I am not the spawn of Satan/ child of hell
Gingers can be hot AKA Amy on doctor who
I am not on fire
I don’t get sun burned by a light bulb
My hair does not match my mood
Not all gingers have Irish heritage actually I'm Scottish
Not all gingers are ugly
We don’t only drink ginger ale (I hate ginger ale and not just because of the name)
Just because my family isn’t all gingers doesn’t mean I'm adopted
My hair color does not define

I mean there are a lot of jokes.
But you know what I think.
You're just jealous that my hair color
Can be found in rainbows
And yours can only be found in the dirt

I get it. I too have red hair, and I think it's gorgeous.
