Reality TV should be about real people - all people - including the ignorant.  If my long term readers remember when the patriarch of that Duck show went anti-gay I raised the question of, is reality TV taking reality out of reality TV.

Michelle Duggar who is pregnant again [correction as noted by a reader - it is her daughter Jill and not Michell - I remember when I read the story it took twice for me to understand it was the daughter - sorry for the confusion] , after losing one child, and nearly losing the previous child, has decided to enter the political realm of discrimination in favor of discrimination.  This is her right - but it is also the right of TLC to drop their show if they decide it will hurt corporate profits.

"Duggar also suggests that gender identity is the “preference of an adult” and that should never be placed over “the safety and innocence of a child.”

No Michelle - science has proven it is genetic.  But given she believes in homeschooling out of fear her children might learn real science it is no wonder she does not know this.

But she does not stop with renouncing science - she goes on to an incredible level ignorance.

 "She goes onto describe “males with past child predator convictions that claim they are female” who would enter these private areas."


It is absolutely her right to enter politics and support any group or position she wishes.  But when her show gets cancelled because the sponsors believe her words will hurt their profits, she does not get to complain.  One thing I love about all of these fake conservatives is, when capitalism silences them they all of a sudden find god and denounce capitalism.

I simply do not understand what makes these people think they can enter the realm of extreme ignorance, denounce science, and think their show will stay on the air. 

When you are given the opportunity to be on reality TV, one would hope you have enough commonsense to stay away from the hot button issues.

With 19 children and counting, what makes these people think they do not have any transgender, bisexual or gay children.  They are in for a shock.  At least on of their sons may be transgender or gay.  The producers do a good job in editing it out, but sometimes it is too hard to hide.

Michelle is not pregnant it is her newly married daughter Jill.

You are 100 % correct - I read your first 4 words and then remembered the confusion when I initially read the story. I will make the correction and note it as a correction.

Thanks for the professional manner in which you brought my mistake to my readers
