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