Blondes not welcome here

The Western Mail reports that the days of the blonde are numbered. According to scientists, within 200 years the image of a natural blonde bombshell could be a thing of the past, as a genetic quirk means fewer and fewer are being born. The last blonde is predicted to be born in 2200 Finland, the country with the highest proportion of blondes.

Apparently, the blonde gene is regressive, which explains a great deal. Let us hope that us redheads (or strawberry blondes as some of us prefer to be called) will survive this evolutionary cull.
Has the Western Mail not heard of a thing called peroxide?
According to the article
'Nature responded with a genetic mutation that produced light- haired, blue-eyed women who stood out from the crowd of brunettes, maximising their potential of snagging what few men remained.'

A better example of misunderstanding how genetic mutation works I cannot think of.

It's bobbins like that that gives credence to barmpot theories like intelligent design.

As if 'Nature' is sitting there thinking "now, how am I going to get these cavemen interested in these women....I know, I'll make them look like Marilyn Monroe."
apparently gingers are going to die out before and the people at real risk a green eyes
Regressive? You mean recessive?
Yes, I think I do. That will teach me to use the terminology adopted by the newspaper.
