Rule 5 prejudice–what’s not to dislike?

In Viva Las Vegas, Ann-Margaret makes her glorious entrance wearing very tight very white very short shorts.  I was a child before that sight, a stunned adolescent afterwards.  You see, Ann’s “Rusty Martin” can trigger S.P.O.S. in susceptible pre-teens.  I can’t find a good pic of that moment, how about the shotgun approach?

Anyway.  S.P.O.S., Sudden Puberty Onset Syndrome, was first diagnosed by yours truly.  Without medical training even.

Of course, Ann makes grown men’s eyes bug out too:

The point of this is…redheads!  Ann-Margaret turned an unbiased boy into a prejudiced man.

You understand this isn’t a negative bias, right?  It’s also fairly mild; few of my long-ago dating partners were gingers.  But, everything else being equal, I gawk a bit more at–

Awareness of one’s prejudice isn’t that rare.  But I bet knowing exactly how it originated is.  Try it, guys.  Begin watching Viva Ann-Margaret as a child, and finish it as an adolescent.

Leaves a mark, don’t it?

This post (filled with Rule 5 ebony goodness!), tells how my love for a woman, “V”, led me to hate the Democratic Party.  V once asked me if I had a thing for black women.  I said, “not before meeting you.”  But now, everything else being equal,

a gorgeous-faced, Barbie Doll-shaped ebon woman does indeed spin my head milliseconds faster than an equally beautiful woman

who reminds me less of “V”. (Thanks again, besteyecandy

So, I have two positive biases about female beauty.  And yet they don’t reinforce each other. Rihanna-Red is beautiful, (h/t Essence) but not more than Rihanna-Dark.  But I’m perfectly willing to reserve judgement.  If any other Rule 5 followers want to display some African-American gingers, I’ll be first in line to check them out.

I've accepted that all of you are socially superior to me. But no pretending that any of you are rational.
