This week, Michelle Duggar's son Josh was revealed to have fondled at least five children when he was a teenager. But Daily Mail Reports, back in 2012, years after her own son's actions were made known to her, Mama Duggar felt it necessary to speak out against a proposed ordinance by the Fayetteville City Council that would allow transgender people to use the restroom of their gender identity. The main reason that she cited in her opposition? Fear that transgendered men would victimize women and girls.
Read the entire transcript of the call, and listen for yourself. Is Michelle Duggar a hypocrite?
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 womens 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.
I doubt that Fayetteville parents would stand for a law that would endanger their daughters or allow them to be traumatized by a man joining them in their private space.
We should never place the preference of an adult over the safety and innocence of a child.
Parents, who do you want undressing next to your daughter at the public swimming pool's private changing area?
I still believe that we are a society that puts women and children first.
Women, young ladies and little girls deserve to use the restroom or any other facility in peace and safety. Will you speak up for protecting women and children?
