‘Counting On:’ Jinger Duggar Just Defied Her Parents’ Values in a Major Way

Jinger Duggar has earned the reputation of being the Duggar family’s biggest rebel. On several occasions, Duggar has proven that while she still has a strong relationship with God and the church, she is also trying to live her best life — and that means not being chained down by her parents’ super strict views and values. Recently, Duggar defied her parents even more by supporting her brother-in-law’s new film — here’s why Michelle and Jim Bob would not approve.

Duggar has always been the rebel of the family

Throughout the years, the Duggars have gained the reputation of being one of America’s strictest families. The Duggar parents, Michelle and Jim Bob, set extreme rules in place for their children, which were highlighted on their TLC show 19 Kids and Counting. The daughters had to wear skirts so as not to show off any curves, and the kids couldn’t engage in any intimate activity until they were married. But once Duggar got out on her own, she began to defy her parents a bit. She moved to Laredo, Texas, which is hundreds of miles from her Arkansas home. Duggar started wearing pants and even recently posted a photo of her wearing a tank top.

She recently announced she’s moving to Los Angeles — a city that is notoriously liberal

Duggar and her husband, Jeremy Vuolo, recently announced that they’re moving to Los Angeles in order for Vuolo to pursue graduate classes. Los Angeles is notoriously a very accepting city, and it’s a lot more liberal than the Arkansas town where she was raised. While Duggar and Vuolo have both stuck to their religious roots in a lot of ways, they’ve also branched out to accept plenty of other walks of life.

Duggar reportedly had great things to say about her brother-in-law’s new LGTBQ film

According to reports, Duggar’s brother-in-law recently made a film about an immigrant struggling with a transgender identity. Duggar reportedly left a comment on a private Instagram account praising the film and her brother-in-law’s hard work. While it doesn’t necessarily say that Duggar supports the LGBTQ community, it does suggest that she supports a movie highlighting LGBTQ causes, which comes a lot closer to acceptance than her parents ever would. And if Duggar watched the film, which it appears she did, she must not have a strong aversion to the LGBTQ community.  It’s important to note that since the comment was from a private account, it isn’t accessible to see and hasn’t been proven.

Duggar’s parents would never approve of the LGBTQ community  

Duggar was raised in an extremely religious household, and there is no chance her parents would ever endorse anything regarding the LGBTQ community. The Duggar family often expresses their distaste in left-leaning social issues, such as abortion rights and gay or transgender rights. But with Duggar moving to Los Angeles, she may be trying to open her eyes a bit to different kinds of people, since the big city is nothing like small-town Arkansas.
