Jill Duggar is under fire yet again, this time for teaching her young kids sex education, and for the material she's chosen to do so.
Despite being fired from Counting On, Jill and husband Derick Dillard have stayed in the spotlight thanks to their social media presence.
The latest controversy involving the Family Dillard echoes, albeit less drastically, some of the views that led to TLC firing them.
As you can see below, Jill shared a picture on Instagram of the cover of a book that she's reading to her two young children.
Her sons are 3 and 1, respectively.
Reading to little kids before they can fully comprehend the material is something we all do, but the book here is “The Story of Me.”
This publication appears to be a sex-education book designed with young children in mind ... and a very Duggar one at that.
"Want to teach your kids about the [birds] and the [bees] before someone else does, but you don’t know where to start?" Jill asks.
"Someone [told us] about these books (4 book set) and we love them! Learn more on our *resources page* on our website!”
Naturally, Jill is shilling for the book as some kind of promotional endeavor, but for once, that's not where some fans have a problem.
The cover, which boasts the fact that it's a Christian Book Award winner, proclaims that it will teach us “God’s Design for Sex.”
The book's description: “It’s never too early to begin giving your child a practical understanding of his or her unique, beautiful body.”
Nothing too polarizing there. But ...
It also explains “why God designed it (your body) to be exactly the way it is.” A thinly-veiled dig at the transgender community?
Maybe not so veiled at all.
It discusses “the specialness of being made a boy or a girl” and “why God wants each baby to have a mommy and a daddy.”
Naturally, fans used to Derick's social media rants against gay marriage and various transgender stars weren't too surprised.
Derick has notably gone off on TLC's Jazz Jennings, Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent, and the cast of Lost in Transition.
With this context, it's no surprise that the couple's surprising sex ed endeavors reopened old wounds with fresh criticism.
Hopefully, impressionable Israel and Sam get a lot out of the "proper names" and "realistic illustrations" of their anatomy.
It's God's design, after all.
The wisdom of teaching kids about intimacy at such a young age is debatable in and of itself, but these are the Dillards.
When it comes to indoctrinating the next transphobic and homophobic generation, you might as well start 'em young?
