Ginger Moustache in The Female Man

By Joanna Russ

Ginger Moustache

The second of the three men who hit on Janet during the party on Riverside Drive, Ginger Moustache is young, hip, and a fan of 1970s slang words like "grok," "groove," and "chick." He's a high school teacher, but seems to think he'll be fired soon because of his Socialist leanings. He's married and lives with his wife and kids in Vermont, though that doesn't stop him from forcing Domicissa to leave the party with him. Although he seems nice enough when he's chatting with Janet, his actions later reveal him to be an even bigger creep than Ewing.
