This is coolbert:

See previous blog entry with embedded additional link as relevant:

"Derogatory fighter pilot call sign was homophobic and targeted RCAF female officer"

"Two senior air force officers will face hearings over allegations they failed to stop the fighter pilots from assigning the offensive call sign"

From the the original story [?] by David Pugliese  •  Ottawa Citizen | Dec 12, 2022.

"A fighter pilot call sign at the heart of disciplinary actions against Royal Canadian Air Force officers was based on an abusive and derogatory comment against a female military member as well as the LGBTQ+ community."

"Two senior officers were charged in October for allegedly failing to stop a group of fighter pilots from assigning an offensive call sign to another member."


"The call sign, which would be used to identify the pilot and would be written on their CF-18 fighter aircraft, was based on the male pilot’s consensual relationship with a female Canadian Forces officer. The woman later entered into a consensual same-sex relationship."

"As a result, the RCAF fighter pilots assigned him the call sign FAWG, which stood for 'F—-d A Woman Gay.'”

Contrary to what I had previously surmised the derogatory comment and nickname was assigned to the male pilot and not the female!

Can it also be reasonably inferred that if all the Canadian Air Force [RCAF] has to worry about is the nickname of a pilot their concerns with combat capability are exceedingly minor?

FAWG and now we know the rest of the story!
