I'm a red head
I have ginger hair and have done all my life. My friends have always mentioned it but in a funny way. I've never had bullying for it. My patience and tolerance is exactly the same as anyone else's, I am a very cheery person on the whole, and really don't care what people have to say about my hair.
I have been told countless times that my hair is beautiful and that people would love to have it. So I believe red-heads who use 'bullying' or 'exclusion from society' as their reason for being aggressive or angry, are pathetic. :)
