Reddit Users Attempt to Shame Sikh Woman, Get Righteously Schooled
Soyeun Choi stashed this in Fuel for Life
I love Reddit users that admit that they are douchebags:
A Reddit user going by the handle "european_douchebag" posted a surreptitious photo of a Sikh woman with the caption "i'm not sure what to conclude from this." The user's apparent confusion stems from the fact that the woman — bound by her religion not to cut her hair or alter her body — has an abundance of dark, untrimmed facial hair. The mind of european_douchebag was SO INCREDIBLY BLOWN by the fact that women have hair on their bodies — and, yes, faces — and that some women are bold, self-assured, and pious enough not to cave to western beauty standards (and gender expectations), there was nothing for him to do but post her photo online and wait for the abuse to flood in.
And I love that the woman wrote back to him. That's all kinds of awesome.
And I love that the original poster apologized.
Faith in humanity restored.
It's all about communication! Once people learn more about the world and each other, the less of a douchebag they want to be.
That's true for some but not for all.
Some douchebags will die douchebags. The sooner, the better.
Ha ha. I just wonder about the name too. Who self-identifies himself as such???
Self-aware douchebags. The most dangerous kind: they're douchey and they know it!
