Derick Dillard; don’t know him? Well, he married into a family that made its name by the number of children its matriarch popped out, as though that’s some kind of achievement.
Yup, he’s Duggar-adjacent; he’s also a transphobic asshat who bullies teenagers online, which is a lovely Christian thing to do.
See, Derick—drop the ‘e’ and the ‘r’ and he’s just a dick—is the son-in-law of 19 Kids and Counting having-children-for-a-paycheck family, the Duggars, and stars on its spin-off show Counting On which is about illiterate rightwingnut Christian extremists spreading their seed into their wives and having children they can ill-afford unless they sell their lives to reality TV, decided to go after 16-year-old Jazz Jennings, trans activist, because, wait for it, she’s getting a reality show too:
“What an oxymoron... a "reality" show which follows a non-reality. ‘Transgender’ is a myth. Gender is not fluid; it's ordained by God.”
Um, asshat, perhaps you should—ALLEGEDLY and I’m just basing it on the way you look—lay off the meth and think that, since you believe in God, and God created all things, maybe God created gender fluidity to give ignorant folks like yourself a lesson in, oh I dunno, not judging other people?
And if God didn’t come for you, Twitter certainly did, asking how Christ-like it is it to bully a teenage girl; and Dillard replied:
“I want to be clear. I have nothing against him. I only have issue with the words and definitions being propagated here.”
First off, you fucking bigot, it’s ‘her’; learn a lesson. And for someone who is living off the coins they earn because they can impregnate a woman, who grew up in a family that made a career out of impregnating women—which borders closely to sex trafficking when you think about it—when they weren’t trying to protect their child molester son from “duggaring” his sisters and their friends, you have no stones to throw.
This kind of intolerance, masked as Christianity, infuriates me, and then I read how Jazz Jennings, herself, responded:
“Every day I experience cyber-bullying, but I keep sharing my story. Today was no different.”
Simple; and with those simple words, she shut down a cyber bully ... well, maybe he had to go impregnate his wife again because they need a new washer and dryer.
