Nicholas Lord, a Navy sailor since 2008 currently on active duty, is under investigation after threatening to rape a young woman who is a Navy recruit.
The young woman posted a photo of herself on Facebook, captioning it to say she’s proud of how she’s working hard to get in shape for the Navy, and she’s excited to be leaving soon. The photo was shared on the page for her Delayed Entry Program for her fellow Navy recruits.
Nicholas Lord, who is not a current recruit and who has been serving in the Navy since 2008, then commented:
You’ll end up pregnant real soon you fucking wh***. If I could and I knew you, I’d hold you down and rape you.
The next day, Lord gloated about his threat on his Facebook page, updating his status to say he’d been “trolling feminist pages.” In case it needs to be said, the Facebook page for a Navy program is not a “feminist page.” It’s a Navy recruiting page. (x) (x)
I don’t know what the Navy’s punishment system is like, but I hope he gets the worst possible. I hope they investigate his past history in the military, too. If he’s bold enough to outright threaten female recruits, under his own name, on public, Navy-run social media, I seriously doubt he hasn’t harassed and threatened female sailors. He may even have raped them.
Especially given the military’s problem with letting men get away with harassment and rape, they need to severely punish him.

Send it viral, and he will see ramifications.

If you only reblog one thing today I hope it’s this.

"Why can't men just learn to take a joke" they say the same about women. Please don't stereotype xx

They say the same about women.

That was the whole point of me writing that. All last week I was getting “Can’t you just take a joke” comments from guys pertaining to rape jokes and me just not “getting” them. The whole point was that men say that to women all the damn time. It’s their get out of jail free card.

That was the joke. And the guys hounding me didn’t get it (which, naturally, made it more funny).

And neither did you, but thankfully most people did. I mean, I wrote in all caps and ended it with two question marks. i thought it was pretty obviously a joke.

Also, there are a million ways that stereotypes are being used to actually perpetuate harm and hold the line on the status quo. I urge you to become concerned with one of those instead of my ways of combatting shit that I get from men on the regular.

can you please tag posts that feature rape (re: #iamjada post) it is extremely triggering for me, especially at this time of year. thank you. xo

I’m sorry. I thought I did, but apparently I did not - tagging now. xx

EDIT: Done!

Man to Man: Why?

Let’s talk about this like men.

Stop being such a little bitch.

Good job, ladies.

Man up.

I’m going to make you cry like a little girl.

Are you on your period or something?

You’re such a fucking pussy.

You scream like a girl.

Dude’s got a mangina, that’s why.

I find it rude that you publicly answer asks when people ask you for advice on private matters. Why do you do that? When your answer might be educational and you want to share it you could at least let the person be anonymous.

Did you know I also respond privately to asks when the sender requests this? That’s been my policy for three years.

Did you know that I also respond privately to emails?

Did you know that in one situation, I even gave my phone number to someone? I probably won’t do that again, but it was a very specific situation that I felt required it.

You don’t know all that I do to help people on this blog and off, publicly and otherwise.

Did you know that I always leave anonymous as an option even when I am getting terribly violent and triggering hate mail, because I want someone to be able to contact me anonymously if they really need it. I always want people to have that option.

Did you know that if someone sends me multiple asks in a row (essentially one long ask) and they send the first as anon, but slip and forget with the others I post them all as anon and don’t even look at their blog because I assume they didn’t want me to.

I get asked a lot of the same questions and stories are shared that can benefit people, so that is why my policy is the way that it is, but that is why I also offer a lot of options.
