Libertarianism has been unable to deal with the fact that the primary supporters of big government are women. The only way to get small government is to deal with this fact yet like with Republicans, most Libertarians refuse to deal with it. They will come up with excuses like “the libertarian movement needs to grow first”, which is an admission that Libertarians will not reduce government if a woman complains. Or they will say, “women were tricked into supporting big government because men didn’t respect women”, which is avoiding the issue by blaming men.
It’s clear that for many Libertarian women, Libertarianism isn’t about small or minimal government, but removing competing government programs that draw money away from government programs that give money to women. (This is a reason why we need Geolibertarianism or Geoanarchism because even Libertarians can’t be trusted to be Libertarian when it counts.) One way in which this happens is attacks on Libertarian men (or men “accused” of being libertarian despite not actually being libertarian) such as this article by Elizabeth Nolan Brown at reason.com where she says that libertarianism is being invaded by “misogynists” from #GamerGate, the MRM/MHRM, the MGTOW community.
Brown’s article is filled with minor lies such that GamerGaters commonly have Gadsden flags in their twitter profiles. In reality, GamerGaters are more likely to use anime characters or Vivian James, the #GamerGate mascot, in their profiles. Also, most GamerGaters are liberals/leftists or they started out that way but became (more) libertarian later when they realized that talk about alleged sexism in video games was Jack Thompson with breasts . The biggest lie in Brown’s article is that #GamerGate/MRAs/MGTOW secretly want a big government program to dictate gender norms. The is the exact opposite of the truth. Feminists have already setup a multitude of big government programs to benefit women at the expense of men. What the so called “misogynists” invading Libertarianism want is those government programs eliminated. They don’t want government programs.
What Brown has done with her article is a case of DARVO (deny, attack, reverse victim and offender), a common tactic used by feminists. She starts out with the assumption that big government programs that benefit women at the expense of men don’t exist (outside of a few minor cases, maybe). Then she accuses the so called “misogynists” of wanting big government programs against women. Brown reversed the victim and offender exactly since it’s feminists that created a multitude of government programs to hurt men, and her so called “misogynists” that want them removed.
As we know most GamerGaters aren’t Libertarians, so why is #GamerGate being lumped in with Brown’s so called “misogynists”. It’s impossible to legitimately be a Libertarian and not in principle support #GamerGate. The obvious endgame for the feminist war on video games is for the government to control what video games can be created since feminist infiltration of the video game industry is a failure and so is their attempt to replace video games with choose your own adventure stories. No legitimate Libertarian can support this, but many Libertarian women can’t admit this since doing so would expose them as fake libertarians who just want to remove government programs that block the expansion of government programs for women. In other words, #GamerGate by doing nothing but existing threatens to expose many Libertarian women for the frauds they are.
