Red head dating
That in and of itself, however, does not mean it will slowly go extinct- since redheadedness is not an especially maladaptive condition- that is, it’s not a trait that makes it harder to survive, and so there’s no reason for it to be selected out of the gene pool.Nearsightedness and color blindness, for example, are more maladaptive recessive genes, and they have thrived just fine.
The final conclusion that the Aalborg University study drew was that the ‘redhead’ gene (or MC1R for you scientistas out there) is far more intricate and complex than the simple blonde or brown haired gene, affecting far more of the body beyond red hair- in fact, we’ve only scratched the surface!In this instance, I think "fascinated" is a nice way of saying "obsessed." She admitted to being a redhead, and, therefore, the object of such ardor. The universe makes only so many redheads, and so it makes an impression when a man is beauty-napalmed by one. I've probably dated 50 percent brunettes, 50 percent blonds.She's asked these men why they are so drawn to the crimson-haired, and the best she ever got out of them was "Redheads iz just hawt, yo! I have had a lifelong attraction to redheads: their alabaster skin, constellations of freckles, and combustible temperaments. I love both, and I've never encountered the usual stereotypes affixed to their hair tones.So take heart, redheads- you may have been oft-bullied in your youth, but know that’s probably only because you might just be genetically superior to your bullies. Well, my wife has promised me that I have a place in her new world order- so long as I keep doing the dishes.(The Frisky) -- A reader wrote in asking me why most men are "fascinated" with redheads. And those men who love redheads likely focus on them because of their genetic rarity.That above article is the first I’ve heard of it.) So redheads are here to stay, barring some sort of catastrophic, nightmarish genocide or unforeseen illness that only affects redheads. They actually might be better selected for procreation.
A study done by the Université de Bretagne-Sud, in France, discovered that redheads are approached far, far less by men than by women- overwhelmingly, in social situations men will approach blondes the most and brunettes the second most, leaving the poor redheads far in the dust.
But upon deeper inspection, the research team discovered something interesting: the men didn’t approach the women because they found them less attractive. As it turns out, both of those are linked to a wider, far more complex gene than previously imagined.
In fact, it was because they found them more attractive: they didn’t approach them because of fear of rejection, assuming the redheaded women were more assertive and temperamental. It’s not that redheads feel pain more- in fact, they feel a different kind of pain entirely.
(Sadly, no one makes those for us ever-common brown haired folk.) Irked at their high horse, I decided I would write a scathing (yet gentle) article about how redheads are actually a genetic dead end and that everybody widely agrees they’ll be gone in a few generations due to the utter weakness and inferiority of the redheaded gene. Put simply, there is a common wisdom that redheads will go extinct because red hair is a recessive gene or because Scotland’s going to get less cloudy due to climate change. This has been oft-repeated, but is (thankfully) still wrong.
First off, it is true that the gene for red hair is recessive.
Redheads are almost-universally considered across cultures to be more assertive, confident, and capable- a recent study done by University of Tennessee and Dalton State College found that redheads are 4 times more likely to be CEOs than their demographics would suggest.
