REDHEAD BANNED FROM SCHOOL FOR BEING TOO GINGER
« on: April 16, 2015, 11:12:20 AM »
Redhead banned from school just weeks before her A-levels - for being too GINGER

A teenage girl has been banned from school just weeks before her A-levels as her hair is too GINGER. Emily Reay, 17, was told she cannot return to lessons until she dyes her trademark look to a more 'natural' colour. Pretty Emily, who is naturally auburn, has sported the same hair colour for three years but has now been told her redhead locks are inappropriate. Teachers hit her with the bombshell when she returned to Trinity School in Carlisle, Cumbria, after the Easter holidays and believes the ban could affect her exam prospects...

This is ginger nuts! Natural redhead banned from school for having hair that's too bright

"The irony is she is playing Scaramouche in the school's adaptation of We Will Rock You, which is about society suppressing people's creativity and self-expression," said mother Mrs Reay, 44... "But the laughable thing is my hair was brighter than this on prom night, and I won best hairstyle award."...

Her mother Julie, was equally furious about the ban telling telegraph.co.uk: “The school’s uniform policy clearly states no unnatural hair colours, like blue or green”. “Is ginger not a natural hair colour?”

Thank you for keeping the spotlight on this persecuted minority, Justin. Kyrie, eleison.
One hides amid pornography, angry music, television that shows the worst of mankind, misanthropic politics, an internet populace led by all the passions: and then one asks, "Where is God?"

I've never understood the big deal about hair color.  If it is a distraction it is only for a few seconds and people move on.  There are many more things that kids can do or wear that are much more of an issue.  Make them wear uniforms but let them express themselves a little bit through hair color at least.
"However hard I try, I find it impossible to construct anything greater than these three words, 'Love one another' —only to the end, and without exceptions: then all is justified and life is illumined, whereas otherwise it is an abomination and a burden."

It's a natural color, they look pretty. Discrimination against people with ginger hair, especially in schools and especially in a modern western country is irrational to say the least. What is wrong with British people on this issue?

I am glad that at least this is one mental complex that does not seem so common in the US and most other places.
