A US Sikh student's dignified response to a tasteless post making fun of her facial hair has earned her a legion of fans. A man took a photo of Balpreet Kaur and uploaded onto Reddit in the 'funny' category with the tagline 'im (sic) not sure what to conclude from this'. The aspiring neurosurgeon discovered the picture and instead of flying into a rage at the person behind the cheap dig, she posted a comment explaining why she didn't remove her hair: "I'm not embarrassed or even humiliated by the attention [negative and positive] that this picture is getting because, it's who I am. Yes, I'm a baptised Sikh woman with facial hair. Yes, I realise that my gender is often confused and I look different than most women."
