End LGBTQ fear mongering by the Duggars.

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.

Petitioning TLC's "Cake Boss"

Publicly apologize to the transgendered community.

On June 11th, 2012 - TLC aired an episode of their hit show "Cake Boss". The episode was named, "Bar Mitzvah, Beads & Oh Baby!" featuring special guest, Carmen Carrera. Carmen is best known from the show "RuPaul's Drag Race" on Logo and has since become an activist for the Transgendered community (shortly announcing her transition after a special episode of "What Would You Do?" on ABC). In the "What Would You Do" episode, Carmen speaks out about transgendered people and the struggles they encounter on a daily basis.  She is also appearing at the San Fransisco Pride Parade as the Grand Marshall due to her work as an activist for the LGBT community. The plot of the episode was to use Carmen to lure one of the bakery's employees to flirt with her as a prank. Before filming, Carmen educated producers on what terms to use and what phrases would not be offensive, i.e. "Carmen was BORN male" or "Carmen is a transgendered woman". Producers AGREED to respect her wishes, however, when the show aired it was a blatant "THAT'S A MAN" moment - very reminiscent of (trashy) shows like Jerry Springer or Maury. Carmen's intent was to promote acceptance of trans women and make it ok to flirt or be attracted to someone who has changed his/her gender. This type of ignorance should not be allowed. There are people around the world who kill themselves because of gender identity disorder. There are people who are bullied, tormented and feel indifferent every single day. This episode brought Carmen Carrera to tears because she does NOT want any part of a program that promotes such ignorance and miseducation. Please, fight for the rights and the RESPECT of PEOPLE. Not just the trans community but for everyone, equally.

TLC Airing Domestic Violence - Anfisa and Jorge.

When Anfisa and Jorge first hit our screens in 2016 as the volatile couple on Season 4 of '90 Day Fiance' people were shocked at Anfisa's behaviour towards her then fiance Jorge. She destroyed his property (car, phones, etc.) and was verbally abusive. In season 5 of '90 Day Fiance' Anfisa and Jorge tied the knot. But unfortunately their relationship has now become violent. In episodes 3 and 4, viewers of the show witnessed Anfisa physically attacking Jorge. Jorge admitted on film that he is scared of Anfisa. People who are familiar with domestic violence will recognise her actions as signs of an abusive and dangerous partner. An estimated 10 million Americans are the victims of domestic violence each year. TLC needs to take a stand against domestic violence and stop normalising it by airing it every Sunday on its popular tv show '90 Day Fiance'.

Remove the Duggars from TV

The Duggar family should have been permanently removed from television when news broke of Josh's molestation scandal in 2015. Once again the family has made headlines, but this time with Derick Dillard's disgraceful transphobic tweets towards Jazz Jennings a teenage girl. TLC once known for its educational content, was one of the first networks to jump on the reality tv bandwagon. The fact that TLC thought it was a good idea to give this family a spinoff show following a scandal is outrages. Honestly, how far is this network willing to go to make a buck? Enough is Enough. If you agree please sign this petition to remove the Duggars from tv permanently before the next scandal breaks.
