Thousands Have Signed A Petition To Cancel 19 Kids And Counting! Find Out Why HERE!

| Filed under: Reality TVGIFs

no title

Uh oh!

A man from San Jose, California has started a petition that's gaining a lot of steam!

The petition, written by Jim Wissick (which can be found here), is called End LGBTQ Fear Mongering by the Duggars, and he wants people to sign the petition to get 19 Kids And Counting off the air!

He's doing it because he's sick of the relentless Anti-LGBT sentiments the show's family voice — especially the momma and poppa Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar!!!

Mr. Wissick also shared a letter that he sent to the network, and it doesn't mess around!

Here's what he wrote in a letter to TLC:

"The Duggars have been using their fame to promote discrimination, hate, and fear-mongering against gays and transgendered people. You need to take a stand on the side of justice and cancel their show."

The petition has been gaining a lot of steam and it now has 31,222 supporters. The petition's goal is 100,000 — which doesn't seem so far away!

In the petition, Mr. Wissick lists all of the reasons why the popular reality show needs to be taken down, and he makes the point that the Duggars — not just the parents but the children, as well — seem to use their fame to promote their own views and beliefs.

It's pretty scary!

Check out what the entire petition said down (below) !!!

"Update: The Duggars have thrown massive amounts of money to repeal this law so business owners and land lords can evict and fire people solely over gender idenity and sexual orientation! They need to be taken off the air!

Michelle Duggar of TLC's 19 Kids and Counting is warning Fayetteville residents that transgender people are child predators and that the law will somehow protect that predatory behavior.

Her recorded robocall says:

"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. "

Duggar words reek of ignroance and fear mongering. Just because someone is transgendered doesn't mean they are a child predator or a rapist. The claim that this ordinance would provide predators with access to women's restrooms in order to assault or leer at girls or women is nothing more than fear-mongering and spreading ignornace and hatred.

Transgender people — who are far more likely to be the victims of harassment and violence if forced to use a bathroom that is inconsistent with their gender identity or expression— deserve to have the ability to use the bathroom in peace and safety.

Josh Duggar has also taken a position at the so called "Family Research Council". The Family Research Center is such a hate-filled, anti-gay organization that the Southern Poverty Law Center in 2010 labeled it a "hate group" for its "dissemination of false and demonizing propaganda about gays and lesbians."

The Learning Channel & Discovery Networks need to seperate themselves from this bigotry and put an end to the Duggar's show."

    This guy needs to learn how to spell if he ever wants to be taken seriously. How hard is it to even use spell check? Anyway, his claims are completely inaccurate and last I checked many people use their "fame," to gain attention to their beliefs or causes that they work for. This guy is just pissed because he doesn't agree with what they do therefor he thinks he has the right to get them kicked off tv? So then all that should ever be on tv is thins pre-approved by him??? Seems a little ignorant to me is all.

    Ok let me try to explain Michelle's point of view… I don't think she meant all transgender people are predators but rather child predators could use the new law to their advantage by accessing women's facilities to do harm to children. If you think about it, it is a valid argument.

    Re: Wren – Exactly! She clearly states those with a past child predator history. People are taking this out of context.

    Ummm.. It's funny how this dumbass reposted what michelle said and just confirms he's twisting her words. She said those with a past record of being a child predator. Seriously , get a life. Stop picking on people to get your 15 seconds of fame.

    Hmmm what are we told when there is something/someone on tv or a movie or music that we disagree with or don't like???
    DON'T WATCH IT DUMMY!!! These are not hateful people. The "facts" hes trying to use are so distorted!! Everyone is entitled to their own beliefs, unless of course your beliefs don't jive with liberal media.

    I totally AGREE with Michelle Duggar on this! Boys use boys bathroom, girls use girls! I do not want my granddaughter in a public bathroom where ANY man transgendered or not, can throw on a dress and hang out in a bathroom! This is dangerous and it will lead to something bad happening, maybe even to a Transgendered person! If you are transgendered we don't need bsthroom laws, if you are a man dressed as a woman, go into the stall to do ur business, nobody will be the wiser, same for a woman dressed as a man, go into the stall! Leave the Duggars ALONE! They are free to think, say, or do with their money what they want to whether gays like it or not! It's called Freedom, stop trying to change and silence people, it is so hypocritical! TLC did not cancel Duck Dynadty and they will not cancel the Duggars because at the end of the day it's about money! Grow up! Everybody has people who do not like them,or agree with them, it's called life! Suck it up and move on!

    People are allowed to voice their opinions whether or not others agree with then. Let's not forget freedom of speech and freedom to practice whatever religion one sees fit. I'm sick and tired of people in this society hating on others because they don't have the same viewpoints. By making a petition and lashing out at the Duggar's this guy is now a hypocrite. He doesn't want them on tv because he doesn't agree with their beliefs/religion/ideas. Shut the hell up and worry about yourself and your own beliefs/religion/ideas. I was raised Christian but I would never judge others based on their beliefs that I don't agree with. Do you know why? Because I was raised to love and accept everyone regardless. And he's bringing the children into this? Doesn't that seem a bit malicious? LBGT who cares. We are all people and all deserve compassion.

    I agree that the Duggers ignorance concerning pedophiles needs to be stopped. It is a dangerous concept. Their beliefs protect pedophiles. Pedophiles can come from any race, creed, color or sexual orientation. It definitely hurts a group of people that have enough problems without being accused of being pedophiles. But the worst is that it spreads an ignorant concept that endangers our children. Educated knowledge about pedophiles will help keep children safe.

    Gays are allowed to be gays, but guess what? Christians are allowed to be Christians, whether you agree with their beliefs or not. So if you want people to respect your values, respect otheres, because what the duggars are doing is only what's been practiced in the last 2 decades, at least. So stop your whiuning.

    What? "want males with past child predator convictions" She said that. and HE wrote it to prove HIS point. He failed. He looks like a dipshit now.

    they are good people with strong beliefs. Doing what they can to do what they feel is helping the community. Whatever. They are harmless sweet people. Leave them alone.

    It's about time!! I believe they will go go to hell for their hate against the lgbt community!
    Please send the link of the petiton to everybody you know!

    Any of you who think she's right are complete morons. Sorry - but there it is. If you think child predators give a rat's ass about the law, you couldn't be more wrong. Child predators are illegal by nature, so the current laws do not in any way prevent them from going into the opposite sex's restroom. Who patrols these restrooms and reports on "offenders" now? Get the point? The proposal was aimed at helping those that need it, and in no way empowers those who would take advantage of the situation. Idiotic thinking from idiotic people… just like the over-breeding Duggar idiots.

    Re: Wren – that is idiotic. Men molest little boys, not just girls. There is no threat of perverts using the law to dress up like women to attack little girls in bathrooms. That's the dumbest fucking thing I've heard all day

    This is absolutely ridiculous. There are thousand of offensive options I can watch on TV that include violence, pornographic images, filthy language, etc. If something offends me, I do the obvious option-CHANGE THE CHANNEL. This show is hardly offensive compared to the options on say, HBO, but because it is not following the agenda of popular culture people are pressuring the network to cancel it.

    Re: DJ

    your argument doesn't make sense. If we all deserve compassion, how are we supposed to stand aside and let them discriminate against other people?

    Re: hello – I was wondering the same thing about you, i.e. If we were not doing exactly the same thing (to stand aside by compassion) by leaving your kind dictate us your gay values code? oh the irony…
