At the age of ten life seems simple, it's all about running jumping and climbing trees. By eighteen you have discovered the opposite sex, alcohol and nightclubs. By twenty five you are your own person, confident and full of life. Suddenly you hit thirty. You find yourself questioning your choices from the years that have past, feeling slightly left on the shelf, wondering where your life is heading, juggling family and friends and faced with ever aging parents. You are not alone, welcome to 30 years and countinga sideways look at life in your thirties.

Ha Ha you're ginger. No wait a second you're hot. Hot and ginger. No way.

Being ginger or at least a redhead here in the UK often means that you are mocked. Most of us went to school with a redhead or at least know of one and no doubt they have suffered the endless torment of being called carrot top or another similar insult at some point in their life. It has been said that insulting redheads is the last form of socially accepted racism in this country. Well I disagree with the idea that redheads are a figure of fun. I happen to think that redheads are kind of hot and after reading this maybe you will too.

Although only approximately 1% to 2% of the human population has red hair here in the UK we have more than most. Scotland has the highest proportion of redheads in the world; 13% of the population has red hair and approximately 40 per cent carries the recessive redhead gene. Likewise Ireland has the second highest percentage; as many as 10% of the Irish population has red hair and it is thought that up to 46 percent of the Irish population carries the recessive redhead gene. A cousin of mine visited from Canada a year or so ago who has red hair and was shocked at just how many people here do. You can’t get away from them.

A lot of people hate redheads with a passion. Maz’s sister for example is currently expecting a baby and has said several times that if the poor child turns out to have red hair she will shave it off. Personally I love red hair. From through burnt orange to bright copper. I prefer darker reds on the whole but think that a woman with red hair is a thing of beauty.

To illustrate my point I have gone to the trouble of finding some examples. Here then in no particular order are ten of the sexiest redheads I know. If this doesn’t set the record straight then nothing will. Enjoy.

So then are you still mocking redheads? What do you think then, hot or not? I’m firmly in support of redheads but what is your view? Have I miss someone from the list? Drop us a comment and let me know.

As a side note I would have included some famous male redheads only I couldn’t think of any. If anyone has a suggest then I welcome it.
