It's been a full year since Jinger Duggar started wearing pants in public, and naturally, that minor act of sartorial rebeliion doesn't garner quite as much media attention as it used to.
Most fans have become accustomed to the sight of Jinger's denim-clad appendages by this point, but it seems there are some who are still shocked - shocked! - by the sight of the 24-year-old in a pair of Levi's.
"Beautiful. Wow she’s wearing pants I don’t think I’ve ever seen her wear pants," commented one fan on the above pic, which recently appeared on Jeremy Vuolo's Instagram page.
"Oh my goodness she is wearing pants.. Oh what is this coming to," wrote another user.
Granted, we follow the Duggars' fashion choices much closer than most.
(And since you're this deep into an article about Jinger wearing pants, you can probably say the same.)
But the idea that there are fans of the family who still had no idea that Jinger long ago cast of her skirt-shackles makes us feel like we're taking crazy pills.

Sadly, the ladies were only able to engage in this small insurrection because a man signed off on their efforts.
Jinger married Jeremy Vuolo back in November of 2016, and the young pastor was so firm in his belief that she should be permitted to wear pants that he addressed the topic in one of his sermons:
“It is your liberty as to whether you dress modestly with a modest pair of pants, or with a skirt, or with a T-shirt, or with a blouse,” Vuolo reportedly told his congregation
“It is not your liberty, women, to wear sensual, seductive clothing that is designed to draw the attention of your brothers."
Maybe someday the Duggar women will be allowed to make decisions for themselves without running it by their husbands first.
But for now, this is a step in the right direction.
A baby step in the right direction, but still ...
