Am I Ginger or Blond?

Ginger or Blond

It is very rare for me to write about a truly serous subjects but some topics are so important that they must be discussed. The question I am about to ask might be the greatest question ever asked in the history of question asking. I advise that the weak-hearted among you stop reading now.

The debate created by this question will send shock waves around the world as faction who support opposing theories clash in open displays of violence. Lovers will be torn from each others arms, families will be split apart and countries will be divided. The very fabric of reality might even fall apart. However, despite these dangers this question must be asked and more importantly, this question must be answered: Am I ginger or blond?

On the surface this might seem like a simple question but underneath it is a raging sea of complexity and confusion. When I was a young child there was no denying my identity as a ginger. I could have easily been mistaken for a walking and talking carrot but over the years my hair colour has faded and become lighter. I continued to call myself a ginger but recently other people have started referred to me as a blond. Then, when Tess from Thoughts and Such asked what it was like to be a ginger I suddenly realized that I did not know how to answer her question.

Could it be that I have been living a lie? Am I no longer a ginger? Am I an outcast among my own kind? Am I no longer allowed to use the word ginger under the reasoning that I am ‘taking it back’?

It’s up to you to decide. Am I ginger or blond?

    I am truly color blind, but I have to say it ginger roots with blonde tips or if you like from wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blond, sandy blond or stawberry blond……

  2. roxanne says:

    Definitely ginger. And I consider myself an expert. :P

  3. ChickyBabe says:

    Well, as long as the collar and cuffs match… :P

    Easy… you’ve got ginger roots.

  4. tenakalaz says:

    oh it’s ginger……. and no poll or vote will change…..

    Some lighting chages may be deceptive but wear your gingerness with pride stu..

  5. Matt says:

    Anyone who calls you blonde is an idiot, the slightest bit of red and ginger. It’s like rabies, you have it or you don’t – you can’t be a ‘bit’ rabid! :p

  6. Invader Stu says:

    Stavanger – I can live with being in between the two.

    Roxanne – Gingers of the world unite.

    ChickyBabe – I wont be providing photographic evidence to prove if they match… I know… I’m a spoil sport.

    Tenakalaz – I will (Muttun Lamb is actually one of the people who thinks I am blond believe it or not).

    Matt – You can’t? Dam, that doctor lied to me.

  7. tenakalaz says:

    Muttun, your joking?? He is not really an authority on hair…. have you seen how much he has..

  8. sophie says:

    haha come on you are ginger!! no doubts, the only thing is that your hair took some “aristocratic copper-coloured shades”… be proud, you have a style!!! :p

  9. Wezz6400 says:

    You might not be as much of a badass Ginger as I am, but you definatly are ginger. Wear it with pride, or face an early outcast, which comes with a free boat ride and a nice though bit heavy pair of shoes. ;)

  10. Invader Stu says:

    Tenakalaz – That is true. He does have enough hair for 3,4, maybe even 5 people.

    sophie – Thanks :)I’ll have to market it

    Wezz6400 – Suddenly I feel like the out come of this poll will bring life or death for me :p

  11. Jake says:

    Yeah, you’re ginger. And we’re very upset that you’re trying to deny it.

  12. BlondebutBright says:

    I’d say strawberry blonde – but I would really like to see pics of you when you were younger to really decide. I don’t care what anybody says – the hair color you grew up with does influence this answer!

  13. zed says:

    I’d also say strawberry blond.

  14. suus says:

    Yep I agree: hazel brown

  15. tenakalaz says:

    STRAWBERRY BLONDE!@!!!!@#!$!$@#$@ Stu run, the blondes are trying to recruit you and bring you over to the light side….. RESIST, RESIST…… Say it loud, ginger and proud!!!!!!

  16. ChickyBabe says:

    Let’s face it… you got blonde highlights over the ginger. And you got regrowth. Question is… what do YOU want to be? And please don’t say a brunette!

  17. tenakalaz says:

    in his defense, and I can vouch for this.

    That hair has not been dyed, there are no highlights… that is him au naturel, with fake roots and all.

  18. Invader Stu says:

    Jake – I’m not.

    BlondebutBright – Maybe I’ll show you some later

    zed – A few people have said the same thing

    suus – That’s a new one

    tenakalaz – But, but, they said if I join them they will give me a cookie.

    ChickyBabe – My hair has not been dyed at all. I think it’s just the lighting that is making it look like that. I’m more worried by what looks like a little bit of grey on the left side.

  19. Tess says:

    I never realised a ‘simple’ question like that would cause an identity crisis dear Stu… *should’ve kept quiet ;) * but for what it means i would say you are definitely a ginger… :9

  20. Dragon lady says:

    Stu I have the same problem. Unfortunately the ginger fades over the years but eventually you go a nice shade of silver grey. Not ordinarry dull grey but bright shinning silver grey. Do what I do when it fades to much, dye it.I,like you am ginger and proud of it. (I’ve never seen a blond strawberry)

  21. sophie says:

    blond strawberry?? what is that? please, can someone upload a pic of this rare specimen? these types of blond don’t exist in spain :-) I think you should follow the advices of dragon lady, a ginger always is more more attractive than a plain blond (sorry…)

  22. Invader Stu says:

    Tess – You were not the only one who brought it about but the question did give me the idea of making it into a post. Looking at the results I think it is safe to say I am ginger :)

    Dragon lady – I think I can already see a little grey in the photo

    sophie – Don’t let blonde but Bright hear you say that :p

    Your life is saved, for now…
