Redheaded Girl Bullied Into Leaving School

Have You Ever Encountered Any Redhead Bullying?

For some redheaded (or "ginger") kids in the UK, where there's a virulent strain of prejudice against people of the flame-haired persuasion, going to school can be an awful experience. (Bullies, of course, will pick up on any arbitrary feature as a reason to taunt and torture.) Recently, one little girl in England was forced to leave school after receiving death threats from a bullying clique. She'd been so desperate that she even dyed her beautiful hair blond so that they'd leave her alone. This particular form of discrimination seems pretty foreign to most Americans, but we have our own, albeit less prominent, issues with redhead stereotyping and bullying.

Have you ever seen or been subjected to something like this? And have you ever been bullied for your looks in general?
