What other controversies have Derick Dillard and his wife Jill Duggar gotten into?

Let’s be fair, Jill Duggar does not really get into controversy, it is usually her husband, Derick Dillard. Dillard making transphobic remarks and starting fundraising pages is not all the issues he has gotten himself into. For example, Dillard recently got into trouble online with feminists all over the world.

The reason this group of people got angry with Dillard was because he questioned their agenda and how they prioritized their goals as a movement. He also said that he hated the whole idea of abortion and questioned how as a group they could support it.
