In her 1968 lecture, she said, "I do not approve of such practices or regard them as necessarily moral, but it is improper for the law to interfere with a relationship between consenting adults." Now a true libertarian can personally not approve of the behavior of another person, i.e. Rand's hatred of homosexuality was should have finally been put to rest after the time of her death when her main follower had to admit that ignorance was at the bottom of her bigotry: Although Rand offered no further rationale for her opinion, her designated successor Nathaniel Branden dutifully followed her lead for a time â with equally little rationale. But Branden gradually changed his views as did many others through the 1970s and 1980s. By 1983, a year after Rand died, Branden was willing to say that she was âabsolutely and totally ignorantâ about homosexuality, describing her view âas calamitous, as wrong, as reckless, as irresponsible, and as cruel, and as one which I know has hurt too many people who ... looked up to her and assumed that if she would make that strong a statement she must have awfully good reasons.â It took courage for Branden to speak up intelligently about the ignorance of Rand... My guess? Rand was a closet self loathing bisexual woman, but that's just a guess... The inconsistency in her view of libertarianism and gays remains a puzzle for many to this day.
