World's Largest Sperm Bank Says They Don't Want Your Ginger Sperm

Illustration for article titled Worlds Largest Sperm Bank Says They Dont Want Your Ginger Sperm

Cryos, a Danish network of international sperm banks and the largest one of its kind, has officially stopped taking sperm from redheaded guys. Despite an overall increase in donations, the demand for ginger sperm just isn't that high. Sorry, Matt.

Essentially, no one loves redheads sterile couples by and large don't want to make redhead babies. Cryos director Ole Schou even went on record to state that, unless a woman's partner was a ginger or she had a preference for red hair, he didn't see many people choosing red hair over other hair types. In fact, the only country where the specimens were running off the shelves was Ireland.

I just wonder how other hair colors factor into the mix. Platinum blonde can't be doing that much better can it? [Telegraph via Village Voice]

As a redhead, I am incensed by this. Seems odd to me that for not wanting the ginger gene passed to their offspring, the guys sure like the ginger girlies an awful lot.

I am a PROUD carrier of the precious ginger DNA.
