Jinger Duggar Wears Pants & Shoots Gun; Fans Freak Out!
Back in April, Jinger Duggar wore pants in an Instagram photo, and the Internet lost its collective mind.
That’s a bit of a strange sentence, but if you watch Counting On online, you know that pants and the women of the Duggar clan don’t normally go together.
In fact, Duggar women are flat-out forbidden to wear pants, and fans loved that the newly-married Jinger was rebelling against her upbringing and taking advantage of her newfound freedom.
So you can imagine how much they enjoyed the above pic of Jinger rocking pants and brandishing a sidearm.
Yes, the photo above appeared on Jinger’s Instagram page over the weekend with a photo reading simply, “Ready! Aim! Fire!”
Needless to say, the comments section erupted with praise and Random Capitalization:
“I am SOOOO happy to see that you are finally able to Be Your Own Person!!! You can now do whatever makes YOU happy! Good for you! Your smile says it all,” wrote one fan.
“Forget all the haters out there. You are a grown woman, do whatever makes YOU happy, girl!!!”
“Nice to see the new diversity in your life Jinger! Target shooting and pants do not define a person so please pay no attention to the judgemental comments being made!”
But not surprisingly, there were those who took issue with the pic.
And because this is the Internet, their arguments were always perfectly cogent and level-headed.
Just kidding, most of them were completely bonkers:
“You are a bloody hypocrite! What is a big Christian like yourself doing shooting guns, a weapon used to kill people? And why are you wearing pants? According to you and your hypocritical ass family, wearing pants is wrong and and guns are evil,” wrote one completely rational commenter, adding:
“You were dying to leave your own Christian parents so you could live how the heck you want? That is a sin, Ms Christian.
As you can see Jinger In Pants With Firearm has replaced Jinger Wearing Shorts as the most divisive work of photographic art featuring a member of the Duggar clan.
This one, of course, is a bit more divisive, but we suppose it’s because Jinger – perhaps unwittingly – touched on a timely political issue.
Watch out for Jinger Wears Pants and Poses For a Selfie With Vladimir Putin and Edward Snowden, which should be debuting sometime this summer.
