Duggar Digs a Ditch Defense

The only thing I know about the Duggar family is that there are many of them, loads of them, and that a brother, Joshua, allegedly(?) molested four of his sisters when they were all minors. The women, now all adults have sued the magazine, 'In Touch,' for publishing the sordid deed and also,the police department of Springdale, Arkansas for giving information that was meant to be private. Well, I can't blame the women for feeling yet again violated. Although, under the Freedom of Information Act, what the police and rag mag did was legal, it certainly seems morally reprehensible by exposing these women. (pun was not intended, but I'll leave it)

What is new in this ongoing family of too many, is that brother Joshua wants in on the lawsuit, claiming his life has been ruined as well by the release of the information. He blames the law and media for his troubles.

Although I do find (Judge Thingy, here) the magazine guilty of being the shits they are, seems everyone in this tale made money from sharing their lives for all the world to see. If the women really thought this was going to go away, then they are na├»ve, and since I have never watched the now cancelled, "19 and Counting," reality 'show,' I can only assume what goes on. Although I have sympathy for the Duggar females, I do not agree with keeping dirty secrets hidden, as if the women had done something wrong. This is 2017 and we still cannot seem to be able to understand that the person who has been raped, sexually assaulted, and/or abused is NOT at fault.

So, back to Joshua, who is married and carries on the family tradition of begetting more offspring, ugh and ugh. I sincerely believe child molesters, no matter what age, will always be child molesters. I worry, worry, worry for the victims. I'll say no more.
