19 ways to denigrate LGBT people (and counting)

by Jeremy Hooper

Screen Shot 2013-03-18 At 10.28.20 AmThis is not surprising news to me, since the ultraconservative family has long courted the anti-LGBT groups and Josh himself has been calling into Tony Perkins' radio show for the past few months. But it is always disconcerting to see someone with a national TV profile lending credence to one of the most anti-LGBT organizations working today:

Josh Duggar, the oldest of the Dugger kids from the TLC show 19 Kids and Counting is aspiring to a career in the anti-gay industry. Josh announced that he is being considered for a job at the Family Research Council (FRC). FRC was listed as an anti-gay hate group in 2010 by the Southern Poverty Law Center for their continued lies and attacks on LGBT people, their friends, and family.

But you know, just this weekend at the GLAAD Awards, I saw Honey Boo Boo's mom, JWow and Snooki, the Kitchen Cousins, the Fabulous Beekman Boys, and a handful of Real Housewives. I think we can handle ourselves in the "culture war" battle of reality TV stars.
