Life is tough for a Duggar woman.

Like, real tough.

You get married as young as possible most of the time, and from then on out you’re pretty much just a baby factory. Yep, if your last name is Duggar and you have a uterus, you best believe that uterus is going to do some hard time.

Oh, and definitely be prepared to be judged for each and every choice, valid or terrible, you make while parenting your gaggle of kids.

One of your "duties" is to make yourself available to your husband at all times — meaning if he wants sex, well, then you better get to sexin’.

If you like fashion and beauty, you don’t have too many options, because you have to dress modestly and haircuts should be few and far between.

(Apparently perms are OK though? Whatever, Michelle.)

The Duggars believe so strongly in their fashion choices that it’s been actual news when one of the girls has worn pants. For real.

Now that we’ve gone over all that, let’s take a gander at this new photo of Joseph Duggar’s wife, Kendra Caldwell, with Amy Duggar:

With the rules of Duggar ladies fresh in your mind, there’s a good chance you see a few issues with the picture already, right?

If you don’t though, don’t worry — Amy posted this photo on Instagram, and you know her followers were ready and willing to tear this apart.

First, let’s take a look at Kendra’s attire here. Because yes, she is wearing a skirt while tubing!

"Is that a skirt in the snow?!" one concerned citizen asked.

Another said "It’s weird to me to be sledding in a skirt — it’s actually hilarious to me."

For the Duggars though, the skirt does make sense. Kendra’s wearing pants underneath the skirt, but the skirt’s purpose is to hide any of her figure that might have shown through the pants.

Modesty, get it?

The bigger issue here for most people is that Kendra and Joseph just announced that they’re expecting their first child, so for Kendra to do a physical activity while pregnant, that’s not OK.

One person called this "not something you should do while pregnant," and another said "Kendra um aren’t you pregnant not very wise."

"I’m not her doctor but I do care about a precious unborn baby’s safety," someone else wrote. "I don’t think people should intentionally do things that could cause harm to their unborn baby."

"I would just not risk getting a injury to myself or my baby if it wasn’t a must," yet another cautious commenter said. "I’m sure there is safer activities she can do while she’s pregnant that are fun and less risky."

"She can flip on the tube or hit a bump or tree. I just don’t think it’s the best idea."

The thing is, and many of Amy’s followers pointed this out, Kendra is barely three months pregnant, if that. Doing some tubing down a hill like this isn’t going to hurt anything.

What do you think: should Kendra take her skirt and her fetus inside, or is she fine?
