American #libertarianism is sort of a mixed bag. A lot of male libertarians are very naïve about social reality, placing personal responsibility above everything else. They seem to take wealth concentration in the top 1% for granted, not realizing the complex reasons behind it.
Yet tons of people are born into poverty with almost no way out, particularly blacks in the ghettos and Native Americans in reservations. Yes, inequality is inevitable in any society, but it's morally irresponsible not to give a damn about it.
It's true that they tend to be far less #transphobic than social conservatives, but many of them judge trans women by "fuckability", which, needless to say, is #sexist. And many of them have an I-know-it-all mindset. Eric S. Raymond, father of "open source", is an archetype.
So you know I'm firmly in the camp of @FSF and highly respect Richard Stallman despite the differences in our political inclinations. That's why I use @Debian. Female libertarians are a different breed, especially those who have been working on the decriminalization of sex work.
@fsf @debian That said, there are some actual social conservatives (regardless of gender) in the Libertarian Party. It was a grave mistake to let them in. Allow me to repeat something I've said: The Libertarian Party needs to purge them all from the party or it's not going to have a future.
@fsf @debian I hope what I've said above doesn't come off as male-bashing, because it isn't. However, gender traits *do* make a difference in one's mindset and behavior, though that's by no means to say that all women are good and all men are evil. Hope I've made myself clear.
