    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.

  14. Coming home today to Canada made me feel so very lucky. I think of how many people don’t have a safe place to call home. I take that for granted all the time. As one-sided as the news usually is, it is still a good reminder that the world is not as picturesque everywhere as it is here and we should consider ourselves so very lucky for everything we have and realize how many people are still living in a world without that safe and secure feeling we take for granted.

     

  15. I am so fucking sick of being told I am crazy for feeling like women do not have the same respect and advantage in this world as men. SO FUCKING SICK OF IT!
