Never thought I’d be crying over an adventure time episode but wow
Friendly reminder that:

What? But the writer said she was still Italian. When did this happen?
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.
signal boost the shit out of this. i wanna see this dickwad’s name everywhere.
Let me fucking take care of this right quick.
As a rape survivor, I would like to be the first woman to tell you to go fuck yourself with a spiked baseball bat you self-entitled little shit.
Ahem. Now then, if kink shaming me makes you feel better, then so be it. If you’re going to curl up in your nice little bed tonight and think “I did a good thing. I protected people because I called out that one blog for being into those awful things,” then so be it. But I just need you to understand what an ignorant fucking shit you are.
Rape is disgusting. I’ve been there. Having someone trusted, no matter if it’s a loved one, a play partner, etc. perform in consensual BDSM acts is not rape. No more so than plain old vanilla consensual sex is rape.
So basically, because I think you’re too fucking stupid to understand basic concepts, I’ll spell it out for you.
Consent= not rape (including, but not limited to, traditional vaginal intercourse, BDSM practices, and even consensual non-consent)
No consent= Rape.
That shit should not be so fucking difficult to understand. I have never been forced into any acts while practicing any type of BDSM, nor should anyone ever be. The line may be a little finer, and that just means we have to take the utmost care in respecting it. I’m not promoting rape, I just get my jollies by being spanked and loads of other delicious things. You can get yours by dressing in a nuns outfit and being an insufferable, judgmental bitch your whole life- but hey, I don’t judge.
