Back in March of 2017 Jinger Duggar wore pants in a photo that was posted to Instagram by her husband, Jeremy Vuolo.
That may not sound like a big deal, but during her entire upbringing Joy was never allowed to wear pants, and she dressed in below-the-knee skirts at all times.
Now, nearly one year after the start of her sartorial rebellion, Jinger has once again left fans floored with her fashion sense.
The new season of Counting On premiered on Monday, and as you can see, Jinger tossed her family’s “modest attire” regulations out the window during a game of tennis with her husband, Jeremy Vuolo.
As The Ashley’s Reality Roundup points out, viewers were quick to praise Jinger’s courageous disregard for her family’s ridiculous rules.
“Oh snap Jinger! Sleeveless shirt and a short skirt. You better work that outfit,” tweeted one fan.
“Jinger looks so happy and beautiful,” wrote another viewer wrote.
“So happy to see her living life as a normal adult woman!”
“Jinger in that tennis skirt… #Rebel #JimBobIsCrying,” a third remarked.
Sadly, the #JimBobIsCrying hashtag didn’t trend internationally.
But hey, there’s always next week!
According to the strict guidelines under which the Duggar women are raised, women and girls must wear long skirts or dresses at all time as long as they live with their parents.
When they get married, it’s their husbands who make the rules about how they’re allowed to dress.
Jim Bob has reportedly clashed with Vuolo over the latter’s progressive (by Duggar standard) views, but at the end of the day, he has no choice but to respect Jeremy’s rules.
Vuolo, a Texas-based preacher, addressed the topic of women’s attire in a recent sermon.
“It is your liberty as to whether you dress modestly with a modest pair of pants, or with a skirt, or with a T-shirt, or with a blouse,” Jeremy told his congregation at Grace Community Church.
“It is not your liberty, women, to wear sensual, seductive clothing that is designed to draw the attention of your brothers.”
He clarified his views in an interview with The Inquisitr, saying:
“The emphasis of the gospel is not food or clothes. Jesus does not save people to make them wear skirts.”
Hard to believe, but the guy’s basically a lefty extremist by Duggar standards!
