Oh P.S. I think this article basically proves that people are comfortable with what they're familiar with. The Irish want redheads, but the Mediterraneans don't? Sounds like people want children who look like what they're used to seeing around them.
I wouldn't mind having a red headed child - I wanted red hair like my cousin when I was younger, used to dye my hair a similar shade of red. One of my sisters has the darker red and freckles.
A red haired, green eyed child would be nice...and unique! I think having a unique look is cool, no matter what that means.
Also, my ENFJ sister (who is not the redhead of my sisters) finds red-haired men sexually attractive. I personally do not, but if it was a sperm bank, then that doesn't matter, does it.

I LOVE red hair. I think because it is rather unusual, redheads stand out & people take note of the ugly ones more than they do with other hair colors. It's hard to appear average when you have such a unique & instantly noticeable trait; they tend to appear homely or gorgeous, with little in between. Plus, some common traits of redheads are not currently in vogue, like porcelain skin & freckles.
My mom is a redhead of mostly Spanish heritage (and it runs in the family); her hair when young was a darker red, not auburn though, and she has brown eyes. It's not as unusual as people may think for a Latin person to have red hair. I think Spain is pretty on par with the average percentages of redheads among Caucasians (something like 4%).
EDIT: In regards to the OP, I would not mind a redheaded child. However, like I said, it is not unusual in my family. Every generation has one redhead it seems.
