Yes, it's a shame that when one hears "blond" they think of woman. But then one doesn't normally think of a man when one hears "brunette" either. Now "red head" is a little different. I know that the Celtic nba team had the the "Big Red Head" in Dave Cowens the center
There are 10 kinds of people. Those that understand binary and those that don't.
I think that hair-color descriptions refer to women unless otherwise specified for the same reason that Sarah Palin says that Hilary Clinton was treated unfairly when she ran for president. Women tend to be judged by and seen in relation to how they look--and that includes hair color. I don't always agree with Ms. Palin (now there is an understatement!!) but she nailed this one.
