I hate that we have to talk about this, but it’s blowing up the internet and various people keep asking me about it. It appears in a recent selfie of eldest unmarried Duggar daughter Jana that she may have photoshopped ugly skirts onto people in the background wearing shorts. Jana Duggar exhibits mad photoshopping skills or is this lame?
Do we really expect anything else from people that think seeing someone dressed in a way that violates their own personal standards they get to shout ‘Nike!’ to warn all the males to look away? This is exactly what the hyper modesty mindset of Quiverfull looks like. The double sided coin that is purity culture/rape culture. The inability to tolerate people different than you, making value judgments on others based solely on outward appearance.
Still not sure why Jana would not just use one of the newer photo editing softwares that allows you to just remove others from the background. Or she could have simply blurred them and their attire. Would have solved her modesty issues and no one would have been the wiser.
I’ve seen a real photo of what the two young women were wearing and it just was not that revealing, standard shorts most women wear in the summer in Southern states. This photo took place on a midsummer night at a Tontitown, Arkansas grape festival. Running into people dressed differently at a public event is a given.
This altered photo was posted on Instagram and immediately divided Jana’s followers. The squad of people that excuse any and all transgressions by the Duggar family chimed in it was sweet what Jana did to protect her brothers.
But many pointed out that Jana was completely disrespectful towards the two young women, manipulating their images without their permission, forcing them to reinforce her modesty standards.
What do you think? Fair game for photoshopping in the background or just disrespectful of the ladies?
