While the question of whether gingers have souls is still a matter of fierce debate, it seems that ginger people have been slowly, but surely, winning the war. One of the latest battles that turned in their favor is the recent invention of the “International Kiss a Ginger Day”, which, well… It has huge benefits, let’s be honest here!
And damn, some of those ginger cookie people are gorgeous!
And today is our chance, people! As Unilad reports, today, January 12, is the official “International Kiss a Ginger Day”, so if you have a crush on a ginger, or a friend with a foxy mane, here’s your excuse to give them a nice juicy smack on their lips! Or cheeks! Or hand! Or… the air, because you can always blow someone a kiss if they aren’t into bodily contact with you.
Some people, unbelievable, hate gingers though. And they even formed a “Kick a Ginger Day” campaign. But both gingers and decent people are fighting back!
So the “International Kiss a Ginger Day” campaign was made in response to the anti-ginger one.
Because anti-ginger people are stupid. There’s less than 2% of people with red hair in the world (according to The Cosmopolitan), and some people hate them? Like, what’s WRONG with you?
Is it… jealousy, maybe? Huh?
Because according to Werner Habermehl Ph.D., from the Hamburg Research Institute in Germany, and Everyday Health, gingers, especially female ones, have a significantly more active sex life than non-ginger people.
Well, how about that? Surely, it’s better to steal a kiss than be envious, no?

In his study, Habermehl wrote:
“The sex lives of women with red hair were clearly more active than those with another hair color, with more partners and having sex more often than the average. The research shows that the fiery redhead certainly lives up to her reputation.”

The world has plenty of red-head celebrities, including Amy Adams, Christina Hendricks, Jessica Chastain, Ewan McGregor, Isla Fisher, and last but not least, Prince Harry himself.
The roots of the stigma against ginger people (which is largely a joke, let’s be honest here) date back to the Middle Ages. People were so superstitious back then that they believed that having red hair was a sign that you’re a witch, or had made a pact with the devil.
Or maybe they were just jelly because red-haired women had more sex!

Anyway, we can all thank Derek Forgie for kicking off “International Kiss a Ginger Day”. Be kind, and at least blow them a kiss, they deserve it. Witches or not. Wink.
