In the time of Counting On, Duggar fans have turned their attention away from Jim Bob and Michelle, and instead began to focus on the children — particularly the girls — as they blossom in to young adults. Perhaps no Duggar daughter has been met with as much scrutiny as Jana Duggar, whose relationship history and sexual preference has been called into question countless times. Now, fans think they have finally solved the mystery of her solitude — as they think they’ve identified Jana Duggar’s girlfriend! Check out the video above to see for yourself!
Rumors about the 28-year-old’s sexuality was first sparked when an alleged Duggar insider said that she “preferred the company of women.” According to the alleged insider, Jim Bob was going to great lengths to keep the “truth” about his eldest daughter a secret from their mostly religious and very conservative fan base.
And fans think that they have compelling proof that her “family friend Laura" is actually her “girlfriend Laura” thanks to the elusive Counting On guest star’s birthday wish to Jana. She shared a picture from the Duggars' trip to Australia (which she was inexplicably on) and wrote, “Jana is our favorite adventurous homebody, the queen of snacks and funny stories, and the kind of sister/friend that none of us deserve.”
So sweet! And so much more sincere than anything else we’ve ever read about her, right?
Unfortunately, if Jana is gay, it doesn’t seem likely that we’ll see her coming out anytime soon. The family has long been vocal advocates of what they call “traditional family values” — at one point, Josh even was executive director of the political group Family Research Council Action.
In 2015 — just before In Touch broke the story of his molestation scandal — Josh spoke at a rally where he
showed his archaic, anti-gay views preached about “traditional family values.” He said, “Natural marriage is something that has been clearly defined over the years. What’s really at stake here is the American family. Marriage is essential to the American family and every single child deserves a mother and a father.”
We’re pretty sure every American child — including his own sisters — also deserve to live in a house where they won’t be “forcibly fondled” against their will. Also, as far as we know, “conventional” marriages don’t include husbands with Ashley Madison accounts, right Josh?!
