7 Things Some Redheads Want You To Know
Original Image

1. Not all redheads are pale.

Yes, I understand the majority are, however let’s be open- minded to the fact not all are. As shocking as it is when I go on vacation to the beach I do in fact get a tan and am more than capable of being out in the sunlight.

2. Freckles are also extremely common, however not all redheads have freckles.

Every redhead is different and every hair color is entitled to have some freckles. Not just red. Every person is entitled to be different than the norm.

3. Another misconception about redheads is that we all have bad tempers.

Let’s be real here folks, can’t we all get a little mad sometimes? The color red does symbolize danger and passion, so this is where people have came up with this stereotype. Therefore, most assume that fiery red hair leads to a fiery personality.Some choose to own that reputation, while others really do not care. Don't confuse our drive and motivation for being short tempered.

4. "Gingers do not have souls.”

If I’m being honest, I have never really understood this one. I have heard the saying, “Every freckle on a redhead represents a soul they have stolen.” Again, what if you do not have freckles? Totally, totally misunderstood.

5. When you were younger and I’m talking pre- Frozen, you always picked Princess Ariel as your favorite Disney princess.

Your blonde or brunette friends could not pick her because let’s be real you definitely had to be Ariel because you had real red hair and you made that very clear to them.

6. I know it is probably a lot easier for you to remember me by my hair color, but I do in fact have a name.

Of course, I am proud of my hair color and I am happy that is what makes me stand out to you. It’s just my name is not ginger, red, carrot top, etc. Don’t get me wrong here, most of my friends call me ginger, but if you don’t really know me I would definitely prefer you learned my name first.

7. The redhead in your life will always hold a special place in your heart.

Whether they have a fiery personality, no freckles, freckles, tan, or burn to a crisp they are unlike anyone you know. They posses unique qualities that make them one of a kind. At the end of the day every person needs a redhead in their life.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
