    Would that be considered an insult?

    People have said it to me in the past. While I don’t feel insulted when I am called that, I think that people are quicker to point out this physical feature as opposed to others that may be possessed by some other people.

    slightly modified for the google factor

    ginger is definitely an insult. i think.

    I thought it was still a good question. The problem was not about hashkofa, there are people who google different terms to see where they are mentioned, or stroll through here to see what we talk about. We try to avoid giving them fuel for their fire.

    Would it be as offensive as calling someone “baldy?”

    Yes, in general, it’s rude. Blondes are associated culturally with lack of intelligence, so it’s suggesting you’re a bimbo, even if that’s not what they mean. Calling someone by a derogatory nickname is against halacha. However, blondeness is also associated with beauty, so it’s possible the person was just trying to be nice or complimentary.

    It’s not associated with beauty. “Blondie” means “person with blond hair and pretty much no other features as far as I can see”.

    It really depends on how it’s said. Calling someone blondie, because you don’t know their name, isn’t derogatory, but when you roll your eyes and say, “she is so blonde” it sure aint nice.

    It can be derogatory either way, but if you call everyone by obvious features, e. g. “you in the blue shirt”, “brunette”, “tall one”, it’s dfferent.
