Jinger Duggar Defies Parents, Announces Support For Trans Community

by at .

For years now, Jinger Duggar's reputation as her family's resident rebel has been well-established.

But up to this point, the 25-year-old's acts of defiance have been largely symbolic in nature.

Jinger was the first of her sisters to wear pants in public, for example, defying her family's long-standing tradition (some would say "dress code") which held that women should wear floor-length skirts at all times.

In recent months, however, Jinger has taken her rebellion to a new level.

In fact, her apparent rejection of her parents' tightly-held belief system has led to rumors of Jinger being disowned by Jim Bob and Michelle.

The shift from mild rebellion to full-blown revolt began when Jinger announced she'll be moving to Los Angeles so that her husband, Jeremy Vuolo, can attend divinity school.

One would think that the idea of their daughter being married to a pastor would be deeply appealing to the ultra-pious Duggars.

But Jeremy's beliefs differ from those of his in-laws in several important ways, and insiders say Jim Bob and Michelle are appalled at the idea of their daughter taking up residence in a bastion of liberalism like LA.

And it seems that Jinger's ties to the Vuolo family are about to cause her parents even greater distress.

You see, the Vuolos are a deeply religious lot, but they're not nearly as conservative in their worldview.

In fact, Jeremy's brother, Charles Vuolo, makes slightly-left-of-center Jeremy look like freakin' Pat Robertson.

Charles is a Boston-based film director and producer.

According to the always-reliable anti-Duggar Facebook account Life Is Not All Pickles and Hairspray, his latest project is a short film entitled Lupe, which tells the tale of "an immigrant struggling with their transgender identity."

Anyone who recalls Derick Dillard's bullying of transgender teen Jazz Jennings will know that the Duggars consider transgender to be mentally ill abominations and affronts against God.

It's safe to say Jinger doesn't share that belief, however, as she recently posted a highly favorable comment to an Instagram post about Charles' film.

“Wow. So amazing, bro,” Jinger allegedly wrote on a private post describing the project.

Jinger may not be shouting her support for the trans community from the rooftops, but many believe it's clear she does not share her family's bigoted belief system.

It's just one of many ways in which Jinger has become a needed breath of fresh air amidst the stagnancy of the Duggar clan.
