It is kind of a weird type of discrimination, to be honest. Pretty much all it comes down to is a couple of recessive genes that happen to be linked together typically. But it gets kind of extreme in some cases. Like I have heard that supposedly being a woman with red hair is an advantage in the dating world whereas being a man with red hair is a disadvantage? Do you actually feel this is true? I am unsure how to feel about it, since I guess it wouldn't affect me directly. Also, if this is true, why do you think that is? Why are more guys inclined to prefer gingers than girls?

Lol I never got the ginger teasing either.
My best friend would joke about ginger kids a lot - and I never understood why. She'd say something about freckles and red hair - even though she had freckles herself lol - and then talk about red heads and such.
I would just look at her awkwardly because when she said " ginger " I thought of gingerbread cookies :P not ginger people lol
So I related these " gingers " to cookies...which isn't a bad thing ha ha so I picture people with red hair having warm personalities and being sweet. Not the other bad things that somehow got related to them which I think was they're like mean or rude or some stupid preconceived sh*t.
I think red hair is very pretty - and I've seen some pretty smexy red headed boys - so people can poke fun all they want - lol some of those people are delish. ( like ginger cookies XD)
So yea - I don't get it. Honestly - I've heard some people say they have ginger hair - and their hair is clearly just brown lol so I don't know, I get a sense of people teasing, and people wanting to be red haired for the sake of the uniqueness.
And if having clearly sienna brown hair is being a red head - then me having black hair makes me a purple head lol :P
Seriously - this is red hair link
This is not - link
Lol so yea - I don't get that discrimination either. People always pick at any ol thing that makes us a tad different -_-
