Ben Seewald's Sister is Jim Bob Duggar's Worst Nightmare

by at .  Updated at .

It should come as no surprise that the women of the Duggar family are a close-knit lot.

After all, it's not as though they can go outside their family for female companionship.

The Duggar women follow a set of rules so strict that it basically forces them to stick to their own kind - which is probably the point.

But for all their father's efforts to clip their wings, several Duggar women have left the nest, with mixed results as far as acclimation.

In some cases, they've found themselves ill-equipped for the wider world - while in others, they've adapted with astonishing speed.

The best example of the latter case is probably Jinger Duggar.

Jinge began wearing pants and other previously unimaginable items in violation of her family's strict dress code shortly after marrying Jeremy Vuolo.

Jinger's oldest married sister, Jill Duggar, has pursued a more traditional lifestyle, in keeping with her family's teachings.

(If anything, Jill's husband Derick Dillard has been scrutinized more than her father in recent years for his extreme views.)

And then there's Jessa Duggar, who's embarked down a middle path, not quite appeasing her parents, but not exactly rebelling, either:

Jessa is married to Ben Seewald, who never shies away from controversy, yet occasionally surprises with his nuanced opinions.

Though outspoken, Seewald leans slightly to the left of the ultra-conservative Duggars, in terms of his political and religious beliefs.

In the past, this has brought him into conflict with Jim Bob.

Fans may recall how Seewald endorsed the Black Lives Matter movement and the right of NFL players to kneel for the national anthem.

Now, it looks as though Ben's liberal (by Duggar standards) views and at least slightly more open-minded outlook are no fluke.

In fact, it seems like the entire Seewald family espouses beliefs and lifestyles that would condemn them to hell under Jim Bob's belief system.

That's a photo of Ben's parents standing alongside his sister, Jessica.

It was posted to the Seewald family Instagram page this week, along with the following caption:

"@jessicaseewald, congratulations on your new journey in law enforcement," the Seewalds wrote.

"We sure do love you and are praying for the days ahead! #backtheblue."

Becoming a cop might seem like just about the least rebellious thing in the world, but take a moment to reflect on what you're seeing here:

That's a young woman wearing pants and embarking on a career that's been closed to women for most of its history.

Sometimes a photo is worth 1,000 words. Ben's younger sister is basically Jim Bob Duggar's worst nightmare come to life.

And Jessica's rebellious ways (again, by Duggar standards) and wild lifestyle decisions don't end withthat, either.

She's dating someone. Yes, dating.

The 21-year-old reportedly has a boyfriend named Philip, and the two of them don't follow the famous Duggar courtship rules.

And we think it's safe to say Jim Bob would not approve of Jessica's choice of attire:

Shorts! On a woman!

Also, how about the neckline. Damn! Michelle Duggar would probably need smelling salts if she laid eyes on this pic.

But if you're worried that Jessica's far-left views and radical behavior will tear the Duggar clan asunder, fear not:

As In Touch Weekly points out, Jessica is a gun-collecting Trump supporter who's political beliefs lean far to the right.

Plus, her name starts with a "J," so she's probably just fine in Jim Bob's book. Even he's got to tip his hat to that, right?

On a side note, how is there no Jessica Duggar? Or Julia? They went with Jinger with a J and neither of those options?
