Redheads rejected by sperm banks

It’s so tough being a redhead the world’s largest sperm bank won’t accept donations.

'Survival of the fittest' at the earliest stage.

'Survival of the fittest' at the earliest stage.

That’s not a joke.

There’s no demand for redheaded babies says Ole Schou, the director of the Cryos International, in Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet.

“I do not think you choose a redhead, unless the partner — for example, the sterile male — has red hair, or because the lone woman has a preference for redheads. And that’s perhaps not so many, especially in the latter case,” said Schou.

The hue and cry of discrimination will not be raised by brunettes with brown eyes, whose sperm is in high demand.

There’s a severe shortage of Indian sperm, said Schou, because India does not allow sperm or eggs to be exported.

Those looking to make $500 for a donation face an upstream battle: Cryos has reached its peak capacity of 70 liters of semen and there’s 600 donors chomping at the tiny cup to give more.

Bite me. It’s a recessive gene. Know what that means? It WILL come back in your lineage, when you least expect it, maybe even in your own litter of spawn. Furthermore, THERE ARE STILL PLENTY OF WILLING DONORS to fertilize our eggs/seeds the old fashioned way, so um… despite all the yammering, we are NOT going extinct! Get over it.

Ginger kids are initiated in their unholy alliance at age 2 1/2. Why do you think they love Elmo so much? He’s RED!! BOOM!!!

Except for Ginger on Gilligan’s Island, I’ve never seen a good looking redhead. Most of those that do look good dye their hair. To each his own, but gimme a brunette. You junior high school kids can have all the blondes…

Simple way around it. Just dye your hair, but do a good job of it.

Personally I have a preference for redheads. The redder the better! And if they have matching facial or chest hair that’s the best of all.

I love my red headed husband. I can only hope my children will get his beautiful auburn colored hair (but my green eyes!).

Blondes are boring, brown hair’s okay, but I love my Day Walker!

When you guys grow up and want a REAL woman get yourself a true redhead! She will rock your world in every way imaginable and I promise you will forget all about those run of the mill brunettes and blondes!

So why is prostitution illegal when a more personal thing like sperm is for sale? If you can’t make your own babies, adopt.

@ Peaches, There’s no such thing as a hot red-head. Your skin is probably translucent and covered with all those hideous orange spots. I suppose you can take comfort in the fact that you can tell faceless people that you would rock their world. My response to you: Barf

@ CKM, amen! they try to play up the whole “oooh were different looking so therefore we must be hot! fiery! enticing!” when in actuality, no sweetheart, you are not. creepy white skin covered in freckles with orange hair just doesn’t do it for me.

If everyone were attracted to the same narrow subset of physical attributes, then you bigoted losers would all be vying for the attention of the same five hot women you have NO chance of getting. Fortunately for you, evolution has ensured that somewhere, somebody will find even the likes of CKM and Jeremy R attractive, (but not so many that you wear your tiny little zip drives out, thanks goodness!)

Fortunately for us, too, some people like strawberry flavored milkshakes and peach pie. And yes, we’ll make more.

WOW! I can’t believe all the people that are so ignorant. There is nothing wrong with readheads, gingers or whatever you all feel you need to call us. I have red hair and my oldest son has the same color red hair. I can say I have NATURAL hair…unlike all the nasty bleached blondes out there! Never will I understand why men love blondes with roots showing. I am glad I don’t look like all the rest of the boring women out there.

@ Ginger Mama, 1) I am a straight female. Therefore, I am not seeking out “the same five hot women” that according to you, I would “have NO chance of getting”. 2) One is not necessarily a “bigot” for voicing ones opinions in a non-violent manner. 3) I can speak on my behalf that men do find me attractive and am willing to bet women find Jeremy R attractive as well. If possible, I would post a picture. That being said, Farewell Ronald and have a pleasant afternoon coating yourself with SPF 50.

Both parents much carry a gene for a red haired child. My oldest has red hair, my father is red and my husband’s biological father is also. I had a Great Uncle who was also a red head. My cousin is a copper penny red and NONE of her 6 children is red. So, guess what: you may “think” you won’t have a red headed child, but that just isn’t the case. Good God folks, take what you’re given and love that child. Are we such a pathetic society that we reject haircolor now?
