John Gibbs argued against women’s suffrage, work in college anti-feminist site

Washington − John Gibbs, the GOP candidate running for the U.S. House in west Michigan’s 3rd District, authored a website in college that argued women should not vote or work outside the home.

Gibbs, 43, started a “think tank” called the Society for the Critique of Feminism, hosted on his personal web page in 2000 and 2001 while attending Stanford University, CNN first reported Wednesday.

On the archived site, Gibbs argued women’s suffrage contributed to larger government and increased spending.

“Increasing the size and scope of government is unequivocally bad,” he wrote. “And since women’s suffrage has caused this to occur on a larger scale than any other cause in history, we conclude that the United States has suffered as a result of women’s suffrage.”

Gibbs is a former Trump administration official who worked in the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and has the former president’s endorsement. He also worked as a Christian missionary in Japan and as a software engineer at companies in Silicon Valley, including Apple Inc. He studied computer science at Stanford.

He ousted incumbent U.S. Rep. Peter Meijer, R-Grand Rapids Township, in the GOP primary in August. He faces Democrat Hillary Scholten, a former attorney in the Obama administration’s Department of Justice, in a closely-watched general election matchup in November.
