A Michelle Duggar robocall has many people feeling pretty offended. The “19 Kids & Counting” star recorded a call that has her speaking out against an ordinance in Fayetteville, Arkansas that is focused on anti-discrimination.
Us Weekly shares that the ordinance would prevent discriminating on the basis of race, religion, age, sexual orientation and gender. It would also allow transgender people to use facilities in accordance with their gender identity. It seems this last part is where Michelle Duggar's robocall comes in.
The “19 Kids & Counting” star says that she doesn't think “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 reserved for women and girls.” She maintains the ordinance could endanger people's daughters and “allow them to be traumatized by a man joining them in their private space.”
Michelle Duggar's robocall doesn't bring forth any facts or figures about just how many transgender people have “past child predator convictions,” and many know that that's not what this is really about. Of course fans of the Duggar family and their conservative views applaud her stance, but others are quite offended.
This Michelle Duggar robocall isn't the first time the “19 Kids & Counting” family has offended people with their conservative views, and it's certainly not going to be the last. However, the show's fans adore the family and are counting down until new episodes begin in September.
