Throughout American history, women have consistently been opposed to political freedom. Most women’s groups have cared more about lobbying the government for special favors than equality. Feminism has become synonymous with Marxism. And the National Organization for Women has a committee that devises honorary awards for Tipper Gore, who is like Michael Moore except with more jowl action.
In an attempt to figure out why women hate freedom, Tim Cavanaugh of Reason.tv asked Allison Gibbs of Ladies of Liberty Alliance this question point blank:
As you can see, Ms. Gibbs doesn’t give a straight answer, which is to say she blames the socialistic tendencies of femininity on everybody and everything except women themselves. But thankfully, through the use of our male brains, we see that Ms. Gibb’s verbal meandering indicates the answer to Cavanaugh’s question: Women don’t hate freedom, they just don’t understand it.
Though women are as smart as men, their thinking relies much more on intuition, which evaluates the world in terms of fashion instead of content.
This is why women fall prey to serial killers. At first glance, Ted Bundy was a handsome, charming guy with a nice smell. Similarly, most political agendas look good, sound good, and they probably even smell good if typed up on high-quality paper, but that doesn’t mean they’re not going to peel off your skin.
Men, however, are more likely to spend their formative years in a serious, studious state until they understand the big ideas of life like freedom, why humans need it, and how to avoid that which snuffs it out. Unfortunately, reclusive study usually leads to not understanding women, which is why most of us libertarians are “dateless wonders,” as Cavanaugh accurately puts it at 1:21 in the video.
Perhaps a more fundamental reason why women “hate” freedom is that women, through no fault of their own, don’t have testicles. And to support freedom, we need to get really good at saying “no,” which is much easier when you have a good set of testicles for moral support.
The only reason government grows beyond it’s legitimate powers is because those in charge say “yes” too much. This is not only easier than saying “no,” but handing out privileges makes you feel like a big deal for doing absolutely nothing, which is every woman’s fantasy.
It makes sense that the growth of government—and so the shrinkage of freedom—works this way. When there’s an institution in society that is allowed to use force legally, like the government, people without the self-esteem to create what they want in life will naturally seek government to get what they want. And as long as they don’t have self-esteem, they won’t feel guilty about it, so it’s win-win.
This means we need public servants to be principled enough to deny even a .01 percent sales tax to build a playground for retarded kids. Women cannot even say “no” to sex with retards, which is how teenage boys manage to get laid.
So it turns out, not by coincidence, the two things we need to be awesome are the same two things we need to be free: philosophy and chauvinism. Ring a bell?
Of course, women are full of love, and they have a certain energy (and boobs) about them that makes philosophy and chauvinism worth our while. To quote Victor Hugo, “The beautiful is just as useful as the useful, perhaps more so.”
But if we let beauty rewrite the Bill of Rights, America would be like Haiti but with more Hello Kitty stores.
