Jessa Duggar Gets Put Through the Wringer Over Her 'Modesty'

You've got to be kidding. Jessa (Duggar) Seewald is facing criticism over her modesty ... for teaching a seminar about modesty. No, really, this is a thing that people seem to be legit upset about.


The Counting On star is reportedly scheduled to be a guest speaker at the Heavenly Highway Tabernacle, where she will host a session called Fashionably Modest with Jessa.

It makes sense, as the Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar's daughters are notoriously modest, and keep everything from their necks to their knees covered. Plus Michelle has said that she instructs her daughters to wear (long) skirts instead of pants because projecting femininity is important. Wouldn't want any gender confusion, after all.

Anyway, if you're into that sort of thing, why not attend Jessa's seminar on being cute and modest at the same time? Because how dare she charge people to come listen to her advice, and her shirts are too tight anyways!

Yeah, apparently people are upset that it costs $20 to get into the June 24 event in Ohio. Vendor spots are $50. It's unclear if that's for the whole Heavenly Highway Tabernacle, or just the Fashionably Modest with Jessa session, but apparently the $20 also includes a lunch and a meet and great with Spurgeon and Henry's mama, according to Radar Online.

Seems reasonable to us, but some took issue with it, and let the family know. One comment on the Duugar Family Blog wrote, "Being paid to talk about your modest lifestyle seems like an oxymoron." Another chimed in, "It feels immodest to talk about how modest you are."

At least one person took issue with her maternity wear, because they believe that she has taken too much liberty with her baby bumps. "Will Jessa be discussing modest attire while pregnant?" a fan inquired. "Everyone has seen her too tight, overstretched T-shirts hardly modest."

Let's hope that person never saw Jessa in her maternity bathing suit. She was wearing shorts and a tank top. Scandalous!
