Any interesting debate started on Guinn's public page today regarding her stance on trans bathrooms (the argument made it over to Pickles, and you can see it here). https://www.facebook.com/Duggar-Family-News-Life-is-not-all-pickles-and-hairspray-269181913180625/?fref=ts But, the liberal Duggar friend, Krista, responded this way, which I found interesting: I'd like to point out that I don't believe individuals fear trans people using a bathroom, they fear sexual violence. And, in order to move forward, we really need to identify this fear. Also, would you want someone who looks like Cait Jenner in a men's room? If we're truly afraid of individuals being sexually hurt, Cait is at a much larger risk than ANY OTHER POPULATION for being assaulted if she was to use a men's restroom. Also, what bathroom are individuals who are intersex (born biologically both male and female) to do? I understand your fears, friends. I understand how scary it is that America is moving away from traditional values. I understand how frustrating and scary and confusing it is to wonder, "What would Jesus want? What does Jesus do?" In all of this, whether you support trans bathrooms or not, we ALL MUST ASK OURSELVES, "Is what I'm about to say/write going to push readers closer to desiring God? Seeking redemption and draw me close to my creator? Is it kind YET truthful and defending righteousness?" If you had to question yourself, don't post it. I know Michelle made the news for doing a campaign to keep trans out of women's bathrooms. And then we all know Josh came out as a child molestor, and the Seewalds scolded him, so I'm just surprised the Seewalds commented on this. Thoughts?
Hello guys! I'm officially "new" here although I've read the forums for some time. I have a question I am hoping you guys can help me with. This is the only forum I can post in, so if this belongs somewhere else, please forgive me and point me in the right direction. I follow this girl on instagram named Krista G. (kristaann_vt) who is a friend of the Duggars. I've always been interested in the "duggar friends," because I feel who your friends are says more about you than just about anything else. Until Krista, I see that they were only friends with fundies. I remember in earlier episodes (or maybe an interview?) where the Duggar parents said they are really selective about who can hang around with their kids (in one episode it said the only babysitter they could have was Grandma, because she supports their rules). Anyway, this Krista girl is just different than any of the other friends I've seen them be around. From what I gather, she goes to a real college (not a IBLP sanctioned thing), wears pants, has a nose ring and is a pretty average American college student, who just so happened to meet the Duggars at their crazy home church (why she was there I have no idea, or how she got there!) So this just kind of baffled me, and I couldn't find any other info about her online. So, does anyone know why the Duggar kids are allowed to hang out with her? Or why she would choose to hang out with them? Are they trying to convert her? Does anyone else know if they've ever had "friends" that they were just trying to pull into their cult? Krista still hung out with them several times after the sex scandals broke, so I'm just trying to figure out if maybe she knows stuff about them and they are keeping her close to keep her mouth shut? I'm currently working on my master's degree in psychology, and hope to eventually become a profiler. So, when I see people that I just can't fit into a box (like this Krista/Duggar situation), it fascinates/frustrates me, and I try to figure it out. Thanks in advance for the help!
