Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are at it again.
Last week, the 19 Kids and Counting reality stars made headlines when they launched an impromptu kiss-a-thon on social media, encouraging couples everywhere to post photographs of themselves swapping spit to the Duggar’s Facebook page.
Everything was going fine until gay couples started sharing their kissy photos. The Duggars quickly deleted them. But they were careful to leave up pictures of people making out with Godzilla, Diet Coke, Tide Pods and a 14-year-old cat.
Now, it’s been uncovered that Michelle Duggar has been on a not-so-secret campaign to warn residents of Fayetteville, Arkansas that all transgender people are child predators out to rape little girls.
According to sources, Duggar has enlisted the help of an automated call system to cold call residents. When they pick up the phone, the following creepy message is played:
Hello, this is Michelle Duggar. I’m calling to inform you of some shocking news that would affect the safety of Northwest Arkansas women and children. The Fayetteville City Council is voting on an ordinance this Tuesday night that would allow men–yes, I said men–to use women’s and girls’ restrooms, locker rooms, showers, sleeping areas and other areas that are designated for females only. I don’t believe the citizens of Fayetteville would want males with past child predator convictions that claim they are female to have a legal right to enter private areas that are reserved for women and girls.
Of course, this hardly the first time the Duggar family has tried to squash the rights of LGBT people. Last year, the couple endorsed sodomy-obsessed candidate Ken Cuccinelli for Virginia governor. They also encouraged their oldest son, Josh, to become an antigay activist. And they once embarked on a seven state bus tour to oppose marriage equality.
As a result of Michelle’s latest telephone scheme, an online petition calling for Duggar’s TLC reality show to be cancelled has begun circulating.
“End LGBTQ fear mongering by the Duggars,” the petition reads. “The Duggars have been using their fame to promote discrimination, hate, and fear-mongering against gays and transgendered people. You need to take a stand on the side of justice and cancel their show.”
So far the petition has garnered more than 130,000 signatures.
TLC is not yet issued a response to the petition.

I would highly recommend that Slutto Duggar go f*ck herself with her auto-shift broomstick… she’s got enough of them for her daughter also!
I want to be in the room when the Duggars are told for the first time about their gay child(ren). Watching them stroke out and die would make for some fantastic entertainment… and great ratings for TLC.
She looks totally insane.
mark my unhappy word – she will bury another child. 19 kids, anti-gay views, patriarchy run rampant, and a number of guns in the house….and “NO” gay kid(s)?
she will one day find one of her own children, lying dead in a pool of blood, by their own hand. i don’t want it to happen. but it likely will.
just ask rick warren.
Queerty linked to the petition to TLC.
At this point by doing nothing TLC isn’t being neutral. They are actively supporting and endorsing the anti-gay hatred and bigotry of this family.
IMO, having 19 kids is spousal abuse. There is no reason to glorify that by showing it on TV.
What a stud Mr Duggar is though. That’s some really study sperm he’s got. Kidding of coarse. He and his baby making machine are child abusers and shitheads for bringing more little bigots into an already crowded world.
@Paul Nadolski: And child abuse. Imagine trying to secure quality time with a parent who is constantly chasing around 18 other offspring. You’d do better in an orphanage or the foster system.
She (and her husband) are the definition of a religious nutcase.
@Trippy: i wouldn’t go that far, the siblings take care of each other and they seem to be reasonably happy, but i agree with the lack of parenting. I doubt they have a close relationship to their children. I remember seeing an episode where Michelle (probably the producers) wanted one-on-one time with her kids. She was playing with a sling shot with one of her sons and it looked so awkward. Neither seemed comfortable with one another. @atticusbennett, i agree, they most likely have a gay and/or lesbian child and i just hope they have the strength to venture out on their own and not spiral down with self hate.
Now it’s been uncovered? What, did she do it again or something? This was back in August, Michelle Duggar and this robo-call nonsense and that anti-discrimination ordinance passed, thank goodness. Hella late with this one, Queerty.
And thank you for the link to the petition. Just signed it… if nothing else, these creationist fundies need to be ostracized and not given clout in an educated country(?)
More LGBT oppression due to christianity. THANKS A LOT JESUS
19 huh? Sounds to me they invite chaos to avoid feeling or dealing with real, core pain. I know a couple of people who have several dramas, some spun out of nothingness, just to keep the chaos, a fine distraction.
What a crazy bitch. Look at her eyes — she’s in Lynnette ‘Squeaky’ Fromm territory.
You can see the crazy in her eyes.
And really, why does she care about trans people and what they do? I guess since her uterus has quit on her, she needs some new way to occupy her time. How better than hate and judgement, since obsessing on sex is all her little cult does?
@Ogre Magi: Hey hey, don’t blame Jesus for the fact that people suck and ruin everything good in the world. (Name ONE THING we as a species haven’t ruined)
After breeding like a damn pig sow her vagina is probably so prolapsed around her ankles that it’s sucking her brain out with it.
This is old news. Her robocalls were placed back in August, and the city ordinance she was opposing actually passed. Next non-story please Queerty.
A woman with 19 kids acting crazy. What a surprise!
I don’t agree with Duggar having 19 kids but on this point I agree with her. One of the reasons why the Republicans have won the mid-term elections is because of radical and dangerous ideas being propagated in the form of “transgender” access to bathrooms.
It’s time the gay community got real. Associating ourselves with the dangerous and radical aims of transgenders is harmful to the cause of homosexuality.
Homosexuality isn’t, “a cause” it’s a reality, a fact, an actuality upon which Republicans will be forced to acquiesce. The same politicians, pulpit panderers, and haters will hate no matter the excuse. The “T” in LGBT must be included in our fight for equality. For those who haven’t the spine to stay solidified with the more colorful elements of our community, know that the population at large makes no distinction between us. We are all to be hated and marginalized, irrespective of our leanings. We cannot abandon anyone on the battlefield.
Well, after 19 kids, you’re bound to get a little crazy. So yeah, she’s nuts. Want her and her family to go back into obscurity, stop watching the show and it’ll get cancelled and like that other famous reality show couple who got divorced because of his affair and whose name escapes me, will be forgotten.

Please explain exactly what is dangerous. You toss around that word but what do you mean by it?
Also, If the GOP swept because of this, then why was it they were fighting to hold seats in states like Georgia? It isn’t a mandate when you basically were fighting to hold and pick up seats in your own back yard.
@jason smeds: what i love most about your comment is that it’s no different from any other Anti-Trans comments on the internet: it’s made by a worthless anonymous Closeted coward who couldn’t even get his crap family to tolerate him.
anti-Trans gay men deserve every ounce of the hatred their families inflicted on them. you’re worthless and you always will be.
@Cam: At this point, why do you even bother responding to his lunacy? Regardless of what handle he’s using, he still spits out the same vile, self-hating B.S. I commend your efforts (as always!) but at some point, you may just want to ignore him. Maybe he’ll eventually go away if we all pretend not to see him standing over in the corner, wanking into his hand.
I heard the same kind of crap up here in Missoula Montana when we passed the very same ordinance, it ended up pushing our HRC score to 100! Think about that, Missoula Montana so call hickville received a higher score the Las Vegas aka sin city! Last week my mother even called me to ask where she could sign a petition to get the duggars off of TLC.
The more you keep pushing this radical and dangerous trans agenda, the more likely you are to have a Republican President in 2016. Just look at what happened a few weeks ago when the Republicans took the senate.
Trans folks deserve to be treated nicely, just like everybody else. However, they do not have the right to impose their dangerous and radical agenda on rest-rooms.
As to those who keep associating trans with male homosexuality, yeah right. Trans folks are usually anti-male homosexual.
Instead of fretting about men in women’s restrooms, she should be protesting her husband using her vagina like a clown car.
I would hate to be Ms Duggar’s uterus.
Duggar’s va-jay-jay must be the size of the Holland Tunnel.
“Christian” so often partners with “Hateful” and “Liar,” it’s difficult to separate the trio.
@jason smeds: Are you more obsessed with transgendered people or rest-rooms? From just your posts here, I would think you must spend quite a bit of time in public restrooms…kind of like Larry “I am NOT gay” Craig…for one
I think people like the Duggars are crazy and dangerous. They are the classic example of what can manifest when you have been brainwashed into believing ‘ Christian ‘ teachings all your life. These two people meet, get married and breed 19 children!! Sure they’re free to do that, after all it’s a free country and the little blessings can be brought up in the glorious ‘ Christian ‘ faith.
Mix the above with public exposure on a television show about their lives and that is when they have platform to spread the ‘ word ‘…..and the ‘ word ‘ tells us that LGBT PEOPLE are WRONG!!…..GOD THINKS YOU ARE WRONG!!
THE CRUSADE BEGINS!!…..
As I mentioned above……CRAZY and DANGEROUS!!!
@NoCagada: “After breeding like a damn pig sow her vagina is probably so prolapsed….”
I’ve read that a half-dozen times, and the tears of laughter are still streaming down my face.
I despise that entire family, and I agree that by having 19 children, each individual child is under-parented. However, we should at least be clear about what Duggar and others are saying about this trans bill before we oppose them.
As I understand it, the position of the bill’s opponents is *not* that transgender people are all predators or that transgender people will attack women or girls. Their concern is that by going from an objective/easily verifiable standard for gender (e.g., penis or vagina) to a subjective/difficult to verify standard (i.e., how I feel inside, or how I choose to identify), it will be impossible to keep males out of private women’s areas. Any cis male could declare himself a transwoman and there would be no legal basis to deny him access. The law would not allow anyone to take note of genitalia, dress, or secondary sex characteristics or to demand a doctor’s note. The only thing that would matter is the unproven, unverifiable declaration of the individual, and any male could declare himself to be a woman.
If safety concerns seem like a contrived fear, consider that this very scenario just happened in Toronto earlier this year. A cis male used a similar “gender identity” law to declare himself a woman in order to gain access to a women’s shelter. The shelter could not demand any proof and could not turn him away. Once inside, he raped 3 women and one 5-year old girl. Google “Christopher Hambrook” for more info. Duggar may be a horrible person and a bad parent, but that doesn’t mean that everything that comes out of her mouth is wrong.
@AtticusBennett: Yep. They never learn. Anyone with eyes who followed the Rick Warren and son’s suicide knows that kid was gay and killed himself because his father pumped so much hatred for who he was into his head that he couldn’t deal anymore. Sad, but true. The same thing will happen here. Statistically speaking, these folks have AT LEAST one gay kid.
@jason smeds: What’s this “radical and dangerous trans agenda” you keep harping on? That transgender people want the same respect as everyone else to be accepted for who they are and to be given the equal rights that they are promised in the Constitution? OOOOh! Sounds very radical and dangerous to me. And what is the obsession with bathrooms? I’ve never heard of a woman being assaulted by a transgender person in a restroom. When I was in college in the 70s, we had co-ed dorms with co-ed bathrooms. No urinals, but stalls and single showers with 2 curtains. Men and women peed and pooped next to each other, showered and brushed our teeth next to each other. I never heard any complaints and never heard any woman express discomfort. People like you and the Duggars need to relax and focus on real problems instead of panicking about imagined ones.
“that kid was gay and killed himself because his father pumped so much hatred for who he was into his head that he couldn’t deal anymore.”
– Source needed.
Jacob23, There wasn’t a source at the time (that I know of) however, the kid did seem to be struggling and thoroughly depressed and it was surmised at the time that he he killed himself due to the message is sham father was preaching against gays. Saddleback man is at it again, injecting his views into the up-coming visit with the Pope. He makes money preaching hate. When we win full equality, they’ll move on to some other marginalized lot. I predict Muslims will be their next bell-ringer-hate-dollars-generator. The Red Scare was a huge hit, then gays, then onto the next vic’. It’s the (bad) Christian way. I do remember thinking at the time that the kid killed himself due to unbearable pressures brought on by this very unwise man.
Wouldn’t her statement work against her.if a man posing as a women gets their jollies off by ”preying” on females that makes them a plain old heterosexual perv.
That’s assuming she had one to begin with.
