Why is "g" not equal to "g"?

console.log("ɡ" === "g"); // false

The left "ɡ" comes from the Oxford Dictionaries API, in the pronunciations for "go," "get," etc. It's HTML & # 609; and described as a "script g". The right "g" is HTML & # 103;, the standard ASCII keyboard "g". Why does Oxford Dictionaries use a script "g"? Are these different phonemes? I've heard of the "Oxford comma," but this is the first I've heard of an "Oxford g"!
