Comparison and Contrast of Red Haired Human and Red-Furred Cat Stereotypes

Red haired men and boys are often portrayed as either nerds or bullies rather than as heroes. Conversely, redheaded girls and women as heroic characters are numerous. The popularity also comes from stereotypes and character traits associated to hair color, but in this case those characteristics are positive. Just as ginger men are often seen as unattractive freaks, ginger women are usually feisty, impulsive and sexy.

Whereas red headed men and boys are most often portrayed as nerds or bullies, red-furred male cats are usually portrayed as heroic or irascible.
