In 2013, Duggar and her family joined the Family Research Council’s “Value Bus Tour” that drove around Virginia to support Ken Cuccinelli, a notoriously homophobic candidate for governor.
She and her husband Jim Bob have also spoken in support of the anti-gay politician Mike Huckabee, former Governor of Arkansas and presidential hopeful.
Alderman Matthew Perry had proposed a bill in Fayetteville, Arkansas, that would address discrimination pertaining to housing, employment and other accommodations. The bill eventually failed.
Duggar was the voice behind a robocall that addressed transgender peoples’ rights to use the correct bathroom. The robocall text is below.

Hello, this is Michelle Duggar. I’m calling to inform you of some shocking news that would affect the safety of Northwest Arkansas women and children. The Fayetteville City Council is voting on an ordinance this Tuesday night that would allow men – yes I said men – to use womens and girls restrooms, locker rooms, showers, sleeping areas and other areas that are designated for females only. I don’t believe the citizens of Fayetteville would want males with past child predator convictions that claim they are female to have a legal right to enter private areas that are reserved for women and girls. I doubt that Fayetteville parents would stand for a law that would endanger their daughters or allow them to be traumatized by a man joining them in their private space. We should never place the preference of an adult over the safety and innocence of a child. Parents, who do you want undressing next to your daughter at the public swimming pool’s private changing area? I still believe that we are a society that puts women and children first. Women, young ladies and little girls deserve to use the restroom or any other facility in peace and safety. Will you speak up for protecting women and children?”

City Attorney Kit Williams called her speech offensive and ignorant.

“The claim that this ordnance would provide predators with access to women’s restrooms in order to assault or leer at girls or women is nothing more than fear-mongering,” her statement said. “This ordinance does allow transgender people to use the bathroom in which they feel most comfortable and physically safe. Transgender people – who are far more likely to be the victims of harassment and violence if forced to use a bathroom that is inconsistent with their fender identity or expression – deserve to have the ability to use the bathroom in peace an safety.”
