don't listen to him, normal threads. Use an impact if you have one, I don't and I get mine off with a breaker bar, sitting on the bike holding the rear brake, sometimes they can be stubborn.

Normal, right hand threads.

Old trick: With the chain on the bike, lay a hammer handle or board across the swing arm between the spokes of the rear wheel, pushed as far forward against the rim as possible, and then loosen the nut.
