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.

Well as an attractive Ginger I have had more than my share of males hitting on me BECAUSE of my auburn hair, include but not limited to my brunette husband. I really wanted a redheaded baby but it is recessive, so I got brunettes. But I long for a red headed grandchild one day.

Because their skin is so light, ginger kids must avoid the sun, not unlike vampires.

Whether male or female, redheads are HOT! The pale skin and freckles are nice too!

I’d take a pale redhead ANY DAY over those tanned jersey shore losers.

Eugenics, look it up. No more top of the Earth people with their snowshoe feet and Siberian Huskie eyes. Only James Michener’s “Golden Man” becomes acceptable. As species are reduced or become extinct all other remaining few species become susceptible to extinction. Easter Island comes to mind.

Whew!!! Last week there was the same article saying that the sperm banks would not accept blacks with kinky black hair and IQs below 85. Whew!! I guess they made up for it this week with the redhead story.

Why do any of you, male or female – redheaded or not – think that sexual prowess and abilities are somehow defined by the color of one’s hair (real or manufactured)?

Ladies if the sperm bank won’t give you a loan because of your red hair, just look me up. I will help for free!!!

I’ve seen exactly two redheads I thought were attractive. Melissa Gilbert and Patricia Tallman. I’ve yet to actually meet a redhead in person that is attractive to me. I don’t like pale skin–I’m actually a white male that prefers black females–or the millions of tiny liver spots.

Yes, I have strawberry red hair, very fair skin (No freckles,thank you very much), hazel eyes, real men can’t get enough of me – I’m that elusive dream girl – don’t knock it, if you don’t know anything about it….

Been seeing a dermatologist every 3-4 months since 6/1975. Light skinned, light haired, light eyed people, according to all my dermatologists, have over twice the chances of developing skin cancers and precursors if exposed to the suns rays as often when no precautions are taken. When one is over exposed to sun rays through whatever means and reasons, one is likely to develop one or all of the three skin cancers and the third will be fatal if not noticed and eradicated in a relatively short time. This is a possible major problem for all, who are genetically redheaded or blond. I am genetically a blond.

My husband and both of his siblings are redheads…neither of their parents or grandparents were, and so far none of the children in the next generation are redheads either…

So somebody please tell me why they seem to think that red hair is suddenly a dominant gene that they can remove by simply not allowing redheads to donate? lol

I feel special and empowered because of all the controversy over something as boring as hair color… oh, also because I’m a full bred readhead with porcelain skin and an attitude. What more could you ask for?

Obviously some people have never known the pleasure of a good game of connecting the dots or finding constellations on beautiful dappled skin. Or for that matter, looking at red hair in full sunligh.t. The universe is in there. Poor Eric C.

Hello, I am an attractive individual with auburn hair. I have a great personality, big brown eyes, a great smile, and most tell me I am so nice to look at. I find this appolling due to the fact that you focus on hair color. What about education, class and personality? Everybody color has its beauty….it is all about the characteristics other than hair colr. So, per say, redhead sperm donations would be denied, but A dark haired man on welfare and no education would not be. So FUNNY! What about a hairy man? Some women hate a man with hair on their back. Let’s face it, if you have class, everybody, regardless of hair color, is equal.

[...] banks even set restrictions on hair and eye color; the world’s largest sperm bank recently stopped accepting sperm from redheads because nobody wants a goddamn carrot top, and their stockpile of ginger jizz was going to waste. [...]
