Redheads tend to be a polarizing bunch here in America. We know South Park’s Eric Cartman has some deep-seated issues with “gingers”. But what about Brazil?

In the feature, Cintia talks about how she hated her hair and used to scrub her face with rice water to get rid of her freckles. Now, “The Unicorn” as Men’s Health put it, acknowledges that “different is better”.

We still think you should have that third nipple removed, though.
