There seems to be a trend (we’re aware of how terrible it is to refer to this as a trend, but the word technically works here so we’re going with it) of women who want redheaded babies. It’s apparently the baby to have these days. Problem is, sperm banks are a tad low on redheaded swimmers.
Only about 2 percent of their “collection” is redheaded, says a sperm donor matching service. And that’s nowhere near enough supply to meet demand. They made a Facebook post literally requesting people to basically fill a cup with their stuff, and drop it off at their favorite local bank. There’s pay involved for your genuine redheaded swimmers, too.
There’s even a hashtag. #savegingers
Just a few years ago, banks were actually turning away redheads because there was basically zero demand for redheaded babies. Oh how things change quickly.
How do you feel about the sudden increase in demand of redheaded babies?
