Dear Ms. McQuoid:

You're right: the illustrative lentiginous face is beautiful. So forget the angel kisses. Tell your daughters the average heterosexual male finds redheads ravishing. Redheads are hot! Can you or your daughters really believe otherwise?

A redhead commands attention. A redhead looks smart, sexy, down-to-earth and exotic all at the same time. A redhead looks striking in green. Nobody but a redhead looks good in brown. In fact, a redhead looks really good in brown. For some reason or other, redheads seem to be disproportionately represented among the...ahem...stacked.

Redheads have a lower threshold for pain. (It's true: ask any dentist.) Do they have a keener sense of life's tragic-comic dimensions? It sounds reasonable enough to me.

Dear Mr. Pivetta,

It is fair to say my father quite agreed with you. My mom was an instant hit with his mother too, who was crestfallen when the offspring (me) did not turn out with red hair. It skipped a generation and my first daughter got all the desired attributes. (Along with her grandmother’s quick temper too --LOL!) I think the only reason we are not having to beat the boys off is because she is so smart it’s intimidating to her male peers in school.

The “angel’s kisses” were the creative device appropriate for when my daughters were in preschool and early elementary. Couldn’t really talk about being “hot” at that age.

Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts. Most replies were, like yours, quite positive although not all. One guy said I was “overly sensitive” and needed “to lighten up” -- LOL! I doubt there is anything to say that could enlighten that sort of attitude.

Take care, and have a wonderful day.

Meredith McQuoid-Greason
