They're only mocked because people are jealous.

I have many ginger friends, they mock themselves!! One of my best friends is red head as is her boyfriend. They're funny My brothers best friend is now technically a gringer, grey/ginger. The possibilities are endless!

If I was breeding for colour I'd go for freckles!!!

My husband was adopted, so we have no pedigree information. So was my dad. We're like breeding rescues.

I'm adopted so no background to show.

I have temperament issues. I'd definitely have to go to a pet only home with no other dogs or children. XD

I can honestly say I've never been mocked -- over my hair color, lol. But the auburn shade doesn't seem to get the same reaction as the lighter reds.

Both my parents side has cancer, though more so my dads. My dad has severe allergies, and diabetes runs in my dads family, as does obesity. My moms family has heart failure, though that seems to have stuck to the males. Oh, and both sides have male pattern baldness at 20 years of age

I need glasses, 2 of my teeth are too small, constant migraines and allergies to pretty much everything. Oh, and I have bad asthma now, but that's due to Swine Flu/H1N1. My brother and sister turned out fine though, (well, my sister is overweight), so there's hope?

ETA: oh, yah, I also have depression and major anxiety issues. And ovarian cysts. When my mom makes fun of me for all my issues, I tell her she shouldn't have found the unhealthiest person around to breed to. She then points out that my sinless are fine and it's just me XD

I have myasthenia gravis -- which is one of the many reasons I knew I did not want to have children. Also, I was greatly feared I'd wind up with one with my sister's/mother's temperament -- or my dad's, for that matter, lol. And culling is frowned upon.

Other than that, though, I wound up with disgustingly decent genetics.

I never plan on children, and the health issues in my family are a big part of it. Allergies and severe digestive issues, a bleeding disorder (which may have finally died out, nobody in my generation has it)...nope. The digestive issues and allergies alone made bits of my childhood terrible. I wouldn't wish them on anyone.

I definitely would be a pet...

There are a number of health issues in my background and I am quite looney

...also I am a snark and do not play well with most others. I am only for the experienced handler
