Michelle Duggar, star of TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting,” is participating in a robocall campaign to stop a nondiscrimination ordinance in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
In the robocall, obtained by the Fayetteville Flyer, Duggar claims that the ordinance barring discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity in areas of commerce, housing and employment would endanger “the safety of Northwest Arkansas women and children” and enable “child predators.”
Duggar’s husband Jim Bob Duggar and son Josh are also fervent Religious Right activists.

Hello, this is Michelle Duggar. I’m calling to inform you of some shocking news that would affect the safety of Northwest Arkansas women and children. The Fayetteville City Council is voting on an ordinance this Tuesday night that would allow men – yes I said men – to use womens and girls restrooms, locker rooms, showers, sleeping areas and other areas that are designated for females only. I don’t believe the citizens of Fayetteville would want males with past child predator convictions that claim they are female to have a legal right to enter private areas that are reserved for women and girls.
I doubt that Fayetteville parents would stand for a law that would endanger their daughters or allow them to be traumatized by a man joining them in their private space. We should never place the preference of an adult over the safety and innocence of a child. Parents, who do you want undressing next to your daughter at the public swimming pool’s private changing area? I still believe that we are a society that puts women and children first. Women, young ladies and little girls deserve to use the restroom or any other facility in peace and safety. Will you speak up for protecting women and children? Call 575-8330 and tell the Fayetteville City Council members and Mayor Jordan to vote ‘no’ on ordinance 119. The number again is 575-8330. For more information please go to www.freefayetteville.org.
