So I’m sure most of you have seen that the oldest Duggar boy (married with almost four children whose wife married him knowing he did all of this) is apparently a child molester. Except people around the internet seem pretty content with saying “well he was just a teenage boy with hormones running amok” or “he was just a child himself” or “god forgave him” and I think that shit is fucked up. It also brings attention to TLC’s business ethic. June Shannon, or “mama june” from here comes honey boo boo had her show cancelled because she associated with a child molester, who was never featured on the show. The SECOND tlc caught wind of this the show was pulled. 19 kids and counting features an actual child molester as one of the main characters, and TLC ran a marathon of it today. It really tells you something about how they run their channel.
Update: I, who have never used my twitter at all ever, tweeted this to june and she responded o.o
I’m not saying she deserves to keep her show either, there is no excuse for her to expose her children to a child molester, one that is said to have molested her own daughter, but the duggars have proven time and time again that they’re bigots, homophobic, racists, animal abusers, and now one is a child molester and the family seems to have known about it the whole time. That’s fucked up.

Eh, honey, I think CHILD ABUSE goes considerably beyond “mistakes teenagers make.” Like, you can’t really put it in the same category as underage smoking or drinking or sneaking out when your parents grounded you.
Interviewer: Regarding franchise films, we often see how actors struggle afterwards to see success in their professional field. I’m just wondering, we haven’t seen that with you because you just keep filming and filming and [your] success is just blooming. Why do you think that is?
