Unfortunately, ginger dad can be humiliating (9)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

degrading

'humiliating' is the definition.
(degrading is a kind of humiliating)

'unfortunately ginger dad' is the wordplay.
'unfortunately' is an anagram indicator.
'ginger'+'dad'='gingerdad'
'gingerdad' is an anagram of 'DEGRADING'.

'can be' is the link.

(Other definitions for degrading that I've seen before include "Small cucumber", "Debasing, demeaning", "Demeaning, humiliating", "disgraceful", "Causing humiliation".)
