Disgusting AFA Article Blames Trans Teen for TLC Cancelling Duggar Show

By Melanie Nathan, July 20, 2015.

Screen Shot 2015-07-20 at 7.50.38 AMJust when you thought they could not stoop any lower, the American Family Association finds its belly hitting the ground below that of the most slippery of worms! In an article on their website they in effect blame TLC’s decision to cut the Duggar show on a transgender teen and her family.

In their article by a certain, Meeke Addison, entitled, “TLC Trades Wholesome for Wholly Confused” – Addison asserts about TLC:  ” So far it appears the purpose is to cave to the new protected class of citizens in America — those who identify as LGBT.”

Using the inane assertions through seemingly ignorant puppet Addison, AFA is furthering its anti-LGBT agenda with lies and in so doing perpetuating the bullying of this extraordinarily courageous trans teen.

Ignoring what the story of Jazz actually conveys, an eye opening lesson in love, courage and truth, AFA tries to distort the truth, in a warped attempt at scapegoating this extraordinarily brave teen.

Not only is there the purposeful disrespect by incorrect pronoun usage, as well as the flagrant misstatement of the teen’s gender identity, but the teen is scapegoated for the demise the Duggar show, while her parents are accused of abusing her though their support in pursuing her transition.

Here is this crazy assertion:

“In a recent interview, this sexually-confused teenage boy, whose family has aided his confusion by allowing him to fully identify a girl,…….

Again, according to TLC in an attempt to raise awareness about the abuse of children and so as not to offend viewers, “19 Kids” had to be cancelled. However, a 14-year-old sexually-confused boy who now lives as a hurting and rejected girl is totally fine. Chronicling the life of a little boy whose body has basically been abused by parents who administered hormone blockers for years and allowed him to dress as a girl is a better option than those wild and morally corrupt Duggars.

Yes to AFA’s way of thinking – happy teens and saving teens from possible suicide is child abuse! And those poor poor Duggars – that loving Christian family – they are the victims – and  though they happen to have the stain of sexual abuse in their ranks – they have suddenly become the victim of this naughty little boy who wants to be a girl – and the entire LGBT community and their agenda!

Here is Addison and her AFA conclusion:

“It’s important to note that absolutely no one in the Christian community excuses or makes light of what Josh Duggar did as a teenager. However, to characterize the entire family as sudden hypocrites or unsuitable for public viewing is, to say the least, perplexing. It almost seems as if the LGBT silence-our-opponents approach made the Duggars a target and the revelation of Josh Duggar’s past failures, as reprehensible as they were, provided the perfect opportunity to remove them from the public square.”

HERE is the whole disgustingly distorted article:

The Associated Press has revealed that TLC’s “19 Kids” featuring the Duggars “will no longer appear on the air,” this according to the network.

Marjorie Kaplan, group president of TLC, Animal Planet, and Velocity networks, said, “We spent the past month and a half in thoughtful consideration about what is the best way forward here.” So the network has decided to turn its focus to raising awareness about child sexual abuse.  TLC also announced “an ongoing campaign” connected to this new initiative, according to the Associated Press.

One component of TLC’s overall campaign is a one-hour, commercial-free documentary slated to air in late August, according to the network. Jill Dugger-Dillard and Jessa Duggar-Seewald are reportedly participating in the documentary. Just weeks ago, in a Megyn Kelly exclusive interview on FOX News, Jill and Jessa emotionally spoke of feeling victimized by the media when police reports identifying them as victims of their brother were made public.

Since 2008, “19 Kids” had been TLC’s most watched TV show — a distinction it maintained even as the show wrapped its tenth season just before Josh Duggar’s juvenile police records were made public. However, amidst what some called a “public outcry,” TLC decided to no longer produce “19 Kids.” According to a Yahoo! article, TLC is in the midst of repositioning itself as “a brand with purpose.”

A brand with purpose? One must wonder, “What exactly is the purpose?” So far it appears the purpose is to cave to the new protected class of citizens in America — those who identify as LGBT. This week TLC premiered a new reality TV show titled “I Am Jazz.” It follows a transgender teen named Jazz Jennings. Many people will be familiar with Jazz’s story. Now 14, his parents allowed him to identify as a girl at age 2 and then transitioned him to a girl at age 5!

Let me just remind you at this point that TLC wants to bring awareness to child sexual abuse… so they’re cancelling the Duggars.

In a recent interview, this sexually-confused teenage boy, whose family has aided his confusion by allowing him to fully identify a girl, said, “I wish that one day it [being transgender] could be something that’s normal and everyone will understand, but right now we’re not quite there yet, so I’m here to educate other people.”  In this same interview, Jazz Jennings lamented that “boys don’t really like me as much because I’m transgender, and they think that if they like someone who is transgender that it’s gross and that they’ll be called gay for dating another boy… so, I mean, it’s been difficult for me.”

Again, according to TLC in an attempt to raise awareness about the abuse of children and so as not to offend viewers, “19 Kids” had to be cancelled. However, a 14-year-old sexually-confused boy who now lives as a hurting and rejected girl is totally fine. Chronicling the life of a little boy whose body has basically been abused by parents who administered hormone blockers for years and allowed him to dress as a girl is a better option than those wild and morally corrupt Duggars.

It’s important to note that absolutely no one in the Christian community excuses or makes light of what Josh Duggar did as a teenager. However, to characterize the entire family as sudden hypocrites or unsuitable for public viewing is, to say the least, perplexing. It almost seems as if the LGBT silence-our-opponents approach made the Duggars a target and the revelation of Josh Duggar’s past failures, as reprehensible as they were, provided the perfect opportunity to remove them from the public square.

Yes, we all absolutely get it. Let’s commend TLC for moving “forward.”

I almost put this story in my Ha Ha Ha category – it was THAT ridiculous.  However I soon realized the seriousness of its abuse and the underlying hate.   AFA and Meeke Addison are attempting to perpetuate the harm caused to children, teens and adults who happen to be transgender, with insidious accusations and a flagrant refusal to hear and understand transgender people and their journeys.

      1. Queer (reclaimed as a term to cover many different minority sexuality es under one term. Change to acceptance by many activists started in the early ’90s) or when talking about youth just discovering their sexuality Q can also stand for Questioning. Many use the longer acronym LGBTQIA which also includes Intersex, and under A, asexual, aromantic and agender.

  1. TLC is the disgusting one to me. Just wanting to make a buck any way they can.Let’s wait and see how that beautiful child feels once an adult. TLC just wanting to cash in, they are not doing this to help anyone but themselves Stay Strong Meeke. You are not the evil doer in this.

    1. LOl – sore Ms. Mcoy! Is young Jazz hurting you? Yes indeed she is a beautiful child and your friend Addison is abusing her in public domain by suggesting that she is not who she – the child- says she is. I suggest you watch the film and see for yourself just how in tune this young person is with reality and her life. The film is about love and acceptance and a moving journey of a wise young super smart person. She is happy. Had her parents insisted she remain trapped in pretending to be that who she is not – I have no doubt the odds of her being another suicide stat would have gone up a good 80%. With that said people like you are the problem – you hate – and haters are evil doers. There are only 3 things I abhor 1) lies 2) lack of tolerance and 3) injustice and the article by Meeke enjoys all 3 of these!

      1. The let this child identify as a “girl” at two years old! This not something that should even be discussed with a child that age. I have a 3 year old now and some days he’s a dinosaur and other days a cat. They do NOT know who they are at 2. You can teach/raise a child to be whatever you steer them toward. This is so sad

        1. As it turns out – Jazz identified as being a girl from a very early age. Gender identity can root back very early. Unlike childish fantasies of being a cat or a dog. My daughter was very much a girl at age 2. Unlike my nehphews wh were very much boys at age 2. In the case of my daughter – she also pretended in her fantasy games to be a little doggie. At the same time she knew she was a girl – acted like a girl. And was very clear on her gender. This dispels the argument you are trying to make Leona. BUT what dispels your unschooled argument even further is the film itself. Watch it if you have yet to – and then come back here and have a discussion with me. If you were to see the film you would see how happy Jazz has grown to be and how her female identity has been strong – and how far time has removed her from age 2. She has remained on the same trajectory – never ever unsure of her identity. The only problem for kids like Jazz are people like you. Give it up and stop judging – least of all commenting from such an ignorant perspective.

  2. “…this extraordinarily courageous trans teen” is not courageous at all. He/she/it is just another effed up person pandering to the TV audience to make some money. The fact that we consider this “normal” is a perfect example of how degenerate American has become.

    1. In truth Jack M. you are evidence of how degenerate America has become. You participate in low morals when you hurt America with your discrimination, racism and bland ignorance. Transgender people are perfectly normal. The only thing that sets them apart from the rest of the world is the judgment of folks like you. So BUT for the judgment of the crazies like you, who cannot seem to cope with those who do not look like and respond to their brain-bodies like you do, life would be normal for trans people.
