Duggar fans have some questions for the conservative reality TV family. After Anna Duggar shared a photo of her daughters attending “sewing camp,” many Duggar followers took offense to the fact that Duggar boys were not also in attendance.
“Mackynzie, Jordyn and cousin Emily enjoyed attending a sewing camp this week,” the mom-of-five captioned a photo of the girls holding their sewing projects. The sweet pic garnered a lot of attention, including criticism.
“Should have sent the boys too,” one fan commented. While another asked, “Why can’t they attend math camp instead??”
Another seemingly frustrated fan wrote, “Girls can other things too! Why only “women’s” work? You never see them do anything but babysit, cooking and [sewing]. 😡.”
Not all fans were quick to attack the Duggars. One wrote, “You should enroll them in some STEM courses too. Bet they’d love it!” While a second simply asked, “Just out of curiosity – if your boys had wanted to attend sewing camp would they have been allowed also?”
The Duggars have long drawn criticism for assigning gender-specific tasks to their children.
As Duggar fans know, in the Duggar family the men typically work outside the home while the women stay home and take care of the house.
