THIS IS NOT SPAM, I PROMISE!

For my Personal Interest Project in the Society and Culture HSC course I am trying to discover Why are redheads discriminated against?
One of my methods of acquiring quantitative responses is these questionnaires.

REDHEAD QUESTIONNAIRE

People with natural red hair please fill out and return Questionnaire 1- For Natural Redheads. Non-red haired people please fill out and return Questionnaire 2- For non-redheads. Your answers will be anonymous; recorded as statistics and research findings.

If you have any redhead/non-redhead family members/friends who might be interested in filling out a questionnaire, PLEASE forward it to them/ get them to do it in the same reply to Bella-x3@hotmail.com

Your contribution is appreciated!

Instructions: Simply make your answer obvious, by bolding, underlining or responding to the question.. Remember this is quantitative research, meaning great detail is not required- simply, truthful answers are necessary and appreciated.

My opinion is that redheads aren't really that much discriminated against. It is a cliche though, that redheads are often portrayed in the media as having a "fiery" personality, so that could create assumptions that it is true. I personally have nothing against redheads and do not assume anything about them, besides them having red hair of course.
