Take a stand against Kick a ginger day!

I don't know if anyone here has heard about what day it is today, 20th of November is announced as Kick a giner day.

Since I'm a ginger myself, I'm against this. And when people start comparing this to rasicm, I can't do anything else than agree 100%.

It might have started as a fun thing, but today, ginger kids at Norwegian schools are afraid to go to school. And that ain't right.

So I just wonder if anyone here have any thoughts about this day.

That's ridiculous, who came up with such an idea?  I'm sure we don't have anything like that here, or else the gingers would rise up against the rest of us, lol!  I agree it's just complete discrimination, and to have taken it to the point where kids are afraid to go to school is terrible.

It was actually South Park who came up with it, in an episode where one of the characters decides to go against gingers, or something. Since we, according to them, have no souls and stuff. *sighs*

Thanks for the support Vic!

OMG Am I the only one who finds this extremely hilarious? Haha seriously... When is the Punch a Blonde-day and Slap a Brunette? Come on people, waste your time on other things, please!

BTW It is not that South Parc thinks you're soulless... It's actaully an old Christian thing, it's Develish, just as green eyes and being left handed.

Yeah, I think you are. The "hate" against gingers are much stronger than that against blondes and brunettes. We're fewer, and stick out a lot. And still, even though it's an old Christian thing, South Park got more influnece on most people, which makes it dangerous.

And there were several kids here in Norway who actually got beaten up. We had no cases of that during the blonde and brunette days.

Pamela, is it funny to you that people are being beaten up for a trivial thing like hair color??  We'll see how funny you think it is when someone is beating the Hell out of you because of your hair color, or your eye color, or because your smile is too wide.  You have completely shown your ignorance to the world we live in.  Am I right in thinking you want to be a therapist, if this is your train of thought I would suggest you look for another career track or improve your mentality!

i'm surprised...LOOK, this isn't AT ALL "hilarious"!!!

it doesn't matter to me what makes people do these things or where it all came from, blah, blah, blah!!! IT'S WRONG TO HURT ANYBODY!!!!!!!!! THERE IS NO GOOD REASON! I DON'T GET HOW THIS CAN BE FUNNY!

pam, i really disagree with you on this one...idk HOW you could ever find this topic funny. things like this happen a lot...there are so many days where different people from different places get hurt for the most cruel reasons!!! and it never stops...the world is sickening. and whoever finds this the least bit funny, i just can't understand. any decent human being would not laugh at this shit.

Wow... I really spiced things up, didn't I...

Okay first of all, let me clarify myself, because obviously I gave the wrong impression. I find it extremely hilarious that people are actually as stupid as they are to make up a day like Kick a Ginger-day. I mean, seriously... What's wrong in your brain when you make something like that up?

I do NOT find it extremely hilarious to see people being hurt and if you people would have read previous comments on other threads by me, you would KNOW I do NOT EVER approve of violence. I do NOT think it is funny to see how people are discriminated and how they are beaten up for being who they are. I do NOT think it's EVER a right thing to use violence when you disagree with something or someone or when people are just different.

With that being said, I hope I have eased all of your tempers and I hope some of you can take back the horrible comments they've made. They were insulting to me as a person, I feel insulted for saying what I actually think and how I feel. I feel judged and I feel attacked on a personal basis. That's NEVER right. I respect your thoughts and feelings and I expect you to respect mine as well. I don't expect it, honestly, I demand it. Just like you all demand to be respected. I am hurt by your comment, Vic, I thought you'd never say anything like that. I don't think you have the right to judge whether I'd be a good psychologist or not. I'm sorry, Vic, it's just not right to say things like that when you know it's my purpose in life. You question my skills and me as a person and it's hurting me big time.

I do NOT approve of Kick-a-Ginger-Day, I just thought it was funny how STUPID people actually are to think up those kinda stupid things. I do NOT think it's funny people are beaten up, I just think it's funny how people can actually hate others because of their haircolor. And I think it's rather strange that there is a special day on which you can express your hatred towards those people. I actually find this rather interesting and maybe I will try to investigate this kind of topics when I am done studying psychology, if only I can make it through and finish it.

If one person had taken offence to what you said then yes it would have been a misunderstanding but given that THREE of us have I think it is your fault rather than ours.

Your initial statement suggests that you DO find it "hilarious" that people are beaten for having red hair.  Maybe next time you say something like that you should consider your words more carefully.

Pamela; "us people" DO read your comments in other thread and that is why I have pulled you up on this statement.  Most of the things you say to people hurts them but none of us dare take you task about what you have said because you always shout us down.  You talk to most of the people here as if they are five year olds.  Not only that but you treat us all like idiots and you are the most intelligent person here.  You have a severe attitude problem, and THAT is why I said you should consider another career track.  You need to learn to talk to people with the same respect that you demand from them.  And that young lady, cannot be taught at University.

You say the things we wrote offended you and so you want an apology, well the things you wrote offended us so should we expect an honest and genuine apology from you?

I gave an honest opinion, Pam.  Surely I'm allowed to share an honest opinion...?  I don't say hurtful things for the sake of of hurting someone, that is not in my nature.  But you offended me and my beleiefs and so that took presidence over anything else.  You say psychology is your purosse, well elimnating racism and discrimination is my purpose in life.  I question your skills talking to people which is a vital thing in psychology.

Even finding "it funny"  that people hate each other is hurtful to me.  I find it disgusting that people hate, I would never describe it as "funny".  Consider your words.

Thank you Carina, for bringing up some articles about it aswell! All Norwegian newspapers are in Norwegian, so it wouldn't be of any help if I posted them here.
