A Ginger is a person with red hair. In the UK,they practically shune them,even if they have green eyes. They say it's some kind of folklore that says anyone who has red hair is "the devil's child. That to me is so dumb, people with red hair are cool!

It means that you have red hair, like me, and freckles. Some people use it as just a way to catagorize or put a label on you, but others use it as a way to be mean and make fun of people with red hair. That is often someones lame comeback to a person with red hair, if they say something that someone may not like. People will say " shut up your just a ginger". I wish the word just didnt exist at all.

But when a red head calls another red head a ginger they're fine with it. It's fun being called carrot top.....and ginger!

From what I understand, it started with the English making fun of the Irish. I don't think it's anything to get mad about. We all have names that we can be called that may get a rise out of us, but if they don't then the words lose their power.

A ginger is usually someone with reddish hair and freckles and blueish/green eyes like myself. My husband calls me "ginger" as a "nickname". A lot of people find "gingers" to be very attractive. I myself am proud to be a "ginger".

I'm a ginger and I run around school saying I'm a ginger and I'm
proud!

Most people hate me and my other friend Maddilyn for our hair but
oh well. Like they say in a video "honey badger don't care!" The rest
of our friends joke about our hair but I go along with it you have to
admit after awhile it seems funny. I say this to the gingers of ze
world: Embrace it hug and pet your head for giving you the best colour
hair ever!

I found out it means you have red hair, freckels, and people think ginger have black souls because along time ago people thought that the red hair was a sign that the child was one of the devil. But i think it's funny and cool. ^_^

It means that you have reddish orange hair, its really a compliment if someone says it, its just stating what your hair color is.
