Jim Bob Duggar Is A ‘Dictator’ Who Controls The Sexual Feelings Of His Kids

Repression appears to be the root of the Duggar family’s issues, and Jim Bob Duggar is the family tyrant who forces it upon them.

As the Duggar family continues to crumble in the public eye after being rocked by a series of major scandals involving son Josh, People magazine has spoken with close sources about the Duggars and how Jim Bob teaches his sons. Unsurprisingly, Jim Bob teaches his sons to repress their sexual desires.

According to People magazine’s source, when Jim Bob Duggar sees a hot woman walking towards his sons he says a code word that forces them to respond by averting their eyes downward to avoid looking at her.

This particular detail is included in the book “Growing Up Duggar” published in 2014 that describes how the word “Nike” is used to “signal to the boys” that it’s time to look at their shoes because God forbid they look upon a woman…and like it.

“They say it, and all the boys look straight down to the floor every time,” the source confirmed. “It’s like an automatic military thing. Things like that blow my mind.”

And Jim Bob also freaks out on people outside his own family if he sees them doing something he disapproves of such as an unmarried couple kissing. But the source says that once confronted, Jim Bob sticks his tail between his legs and moves on because he isn’t used to being challenged.

“Jim Bob’s favorite word is ‘no.’ He’s like a dictator. He once saw a guy kissing a girl before marriage and confronted him about it. And the guy said, ‘Jim Bob, show me that verse in the Bible that says we can’t kiss. Get out your Bible.’ And Jim Bob was like, ‘Uhhhh …’ because no one ever confronts Jim Bob. No one.”

So basically, sexual repression throughout his teenage years could be a major reason why Josh Duggar struggles with issues of porn addiction and adultery. And stats seem to confirm this. Conservatives, who make up a large portion of members in fundamentalist Christian churches, actually watch porn more than anyone else according to a recent study.

The Duggars are a textbook example. Instead of simply allowing his children to be normal teenagers, Jim Bob raises his children under a strict moral code that is impossible to live up to. His kids have to be chaperoned on dates and they aren’t allowed to kiss until he gives his permission. Jim Bob also has to approve of the match before his kids can marry. Those kids live under a roof where it is forbidden to challenge their father, while they are taught that women are inferior to men and using birth control is a sin. It’s a draconian system that makes it unsurprising that the Duggars are so screwed up and it really should be classified as child abuse. And it’s abuse that will only continue as new generations of Duggar kids come into the world and are forced to grow up abiding by these insane rules.

Forcing teens to repress their sexuality only makes it harder to be an adult in the real world. Just ask Josh Duggar. He’s the perfect example of why his family’s extremist Christian philosophy is a terrible thing for kids to grow up with.
