Hello all,

F’n Wook is back on Facebook!  Oh yeah – great stuff on there…go check it out.  It is now posting as Wookie Monster.

Please be sure to check out the page and don’t forget to report it.  Not to stop “free speech” but to create some good order and discipline.

SGT Gary Stein – who founded the FB page Armed Forces Tea Party – was administratively discharged for failing to promote good order and discipline and to remove that FB page.  Speaking politically seems to be against the Marine Corps policy…but promoting mysogyny and sexual violence is okay fine by them!

My father served in the Marine Corp…he is proud that I served in the Army…I wonder how proud he would be of this?

F’N Wookie Monster

May 23, 2013

Hello, Friends!

In case you missed it – I received the following from an individual calling “herself” Wookie Monster – she states that she was the page administrator of the Facebook page F’N Wook:

Hello Overly Sensitive Internet Crusader,

I am Wookie Monster, known throughout the Marine Humor circles as this name from my time as an adnimistrator – arguably the primary administrator – of the F’N Wook page.

I bet you’d be surprised to know that those pictures you featured were sent to me by the female Marines themselves – mind blowing, huh? In as much as humor is experienced subjectively, it is also expressed in a very subjective way, which is why I do not find certain comedians funny.

Congress Wook has made it seem as though we were some sort of underground rape club within the ranks of the Marine Corps – which is flatly false. I do not dispute that our humor is bitter, misogynistic and offensive. I find Westboro Baptist offensive and most Christians – or theists, in general – offensive, but you don’t see me crusading to shut down pages which encourage people to pray for rape victims or pray for Oklahoma tornado victims as opposed to getting off their lazy asses actually doing something beyond emailing and “liking” pages on Facebook.

You know, the picture of the woman in bondage that I posted, I bet she had some pretty awesome sex during that photoshoot. That was clearly an expression of her sexuality and I merely captioned the picture – it was not a “rape situation,” whatever that phrase means.

If you want to ask me some pointed questions instead of rambling, feel free to contact me at

Sincerely,
~WM

Now – I am not posting this separately so that people can attack what she has to say – so please be kind in your comments. 

The reason I am posting this is to talk about the military culture, the way this all works out for some people.  I want to share one of my own stories about SGT Jerk that I am not sure if I have shared.

SGT Jerk is actually one of the funniest people I have ever met.  He comes off as a fun-loving, happy, “out for the soldier” type of NCO.  I have nearly pee’d myself on more than one occasion around him because I was laughing so hard.

When I was assigned to his platoon there was another female NCO there that I will call Angela.  Angela was a good person…she seemed pretty good at what she was doing…she could be a little “off” at times.  She wasn’t the best NCO I have ever met – but she was okay.  I had actually known her for sometime…but we didn’t see much of each other.

Slowly but steadily, SGT Jerk would point out what she was doing wrong.  He would assign me to do things because, “SGT Angela just doesn’t quite get it right.”  I was fine with that.  Over time I became convinced that she was a sub-standard NCO.  I had no problem going around her or over her as needed.  SGT Angela finally got transferred out!!  Whew…what a relief…cause she was really gettting bad at her job!

A few months later I got my stripes and we realigned platoons somewhat.  SGT Jerk explained that he was going to make SPC BS his 1st squad leader because he felt I was too new a SGT to have that position.  I was placed in a position below an E-4…but that was okay, I just needed to “prove” myself to SGT Jerk.

Suddenly – people started noticing when I made a mistake.  Or someone would say – “SGT Jerk said you really screwed XXXX up.”  I didn’t screw anythign up?  What is up with that!!  SGT Jerk would disappear with SPC BS into the NCO room and leave me to run the platoon.  Next thing I would know he would be in my face about something I did that he didn’t like – or he would accuse me of saying something I didn’t say.  Then he got violent.  At first it was little things, grabbing or pushing – dropping me in front of the platoon.  Before he was done with me I was on the ground in front of the platoon being beaten with a large stick.  SPC BS, who was also a friend of mine and a good guy, actually stopped him.  (The BS is literally his initials 🙂 )  However, SPC BS claims he doesn’t remember any of it.  He protected SGT Jerk. 

Suddenly things became clear to me.  He had three female NCO’s leave his platoon in any way possible.  They all left under the same idea that they were “incompetent.”  They weren’t terrible NCO’s – this is just how he got “rid of us.”  Paint us as lousy soldiers, convince others – even other females, and then you have full control.  The female who he is targeting can’t get anyone to stand with them – because it isn’t SGT Jerk’s fault…it is her fault.

Wookie Monster states that her page is all in good fun. Yeah, there were a lot of things in the military done and said in good fun.  Hell, I had an NCO give me the call sign “D-O-G” (di-oh-gee) because he wanted me to roll over and give head, I mean play dead…that was just fun.  I was the platoon’s only female, might as well have fun with the BITCH concept.  (We even had several of the older/higher ranking females take BITCH names)  After all, these men were my friends and my “brothers” – it is just part of the military humor.   These men weren’t like the “others” that had assaulted me.  I loved these guys and they loved me!  Nothing to fear.

That was until it went too far.  Until I had to file a complaint to make certain things stop.  I had male NCO’s privately tell me they knew he was wrong and to watch my back – but when push came to shove…they supported him.   The NCO who gave me the call sign DOG even came to me privately and said, “If I have done or said ANYTHING to hurt you – please tell me.”  He had not, I had never felt like a “female soldier” under his command – I was just a “soldier.”  But when it came time to stand…they all stood behind him.  Even the other females.

26,000 rapes last year.  There is a rape culture!!  Not only is there a rape culture because of 26,000 of them – there is a rape culture because Commands do very little, or nothing at all, to protect the victims or to proscecute the rapists.

Wookie Monster may find me over senstive – but I have a right to be!  I have a right to worry about next year’s 26,000 and last year’s 21,000!! 

You see, Wookie Monster, you may be providing harmless and funny humor to thousands who just see it as funny.  They don’t believe it – it is just funny.  But what about the few who not only believe it – but act on it!  You may think it is funny to be part of the culture of mysogyny…you may think it makes you one of the guys.  Maybe for some it does.  But what happens when one of them decides to rape a fellow Marine?  One of YOUR sisters…Is it funny now?  Do you really want that to be on your head?

Take my advice, please!  You don’t want to join this club.  You don’t want to see anyone else join this club.  And you don’t want to be part of making it happen!!!

I was raised by a Marine – so I know the pride and honor that the Marines hold for the rest of their lives.  Don’t dishonor them by thinking that this is okay.

Blessings,

Joan

Thanks to the hard work of Representative Jackie Speier, the military has once again been outed for demonstrating it’s penance for mysogyny.  This time it was a facebook page called “F’n Wook.” 

Looking through the Urban Dictionary it took me a while to find the appropriate definition….but apparently a “wook” is a term for a sexually indiscriminate girl…a combination of the words “wasted hooker.”  It is more popular around college campuses than in the military – but somone decided it was an appropriate way to describe women in the Marines.

This is the culture folks.  This is what we are talking about!  Last year, SGT Gary Stein was discharged from the USMC for refusing to take down the Facebook page – Armed Forces Tea Party.  It was against the “good order and discipline” of the USMC.  The Marine Corp states that they knew about the page – had been watching it for 3 years – but they didn’t have a problem with it.  Apparently, hatred and violence of women is NOT against the good order and discipline of the United States Marine Corp.

I display a couple of these images in this blog to show exactly what this culture is like.  To display the “culture”  that exists in the military. 

1.  The only way a woman can get promoted is through sexual favors.

2.  Rape is not only tolerated…it is encouraged.

3.  Physical violence against women is acceptable.

These photos are the least disturbing I have found!  Some of the truly horrible ones display women in bondage and in rape situations.  It is truly quite disgusting.

Even worse are some of the internet comments.  People said they are unhappy it was taken down – that it was all in good fun.

Okay Mr. “All in Good Fun”…what if this was your sister?  What if it was your daughter?

This has to change.
