“I could see him getting more heated, he was upset with me about some of the questions — that’s OK — he was a little irritated, and that’s OK.” she said of what was going through her mind during the interview. “So, when I see Robert [Kelly] getting really upset, and he stands out of his seat, my initial reaction was, ‘Oh God, please don’t leave, please don’t leave.'”
And if that wasn’t enough, she goes on to say, “I never thought he was going to hurt me or hit me.” Classic Domestic Violence victim lines.
If you want to know how women end up in abusive relationships, Gayle King Just epitomized how women are sucked into abuse without even realizing it.
What was going through Gayle’s mind is exactly what goes through the minds of most victimized women when a man is towering over her with rage even if not directed towards her. “He was upset with me about some of the questions – that’s OK.”
Is it really OK? Obviously, Gayle is taking the blame for his behavior I am shocked not only at her, but at all her colleagues who in turn, speak out against Domestic Violence yet overlooked the violent display of aggression by an abuser and commended Gayle for withstanding the abuse!
Every person who has hosted a show about domestic violence questions why a woman allows herself to stay or get involved with abusive men; surely there were early signs, right? This sign was clear as day and everyone acted as if something very wrong didn’t just happen. To truly answer that question of why, you must experience this type of abuse to know what goes through a woman’s mind while it’s happening.
Gayle now has firsthand experience of the denial victimized women go through before one day waking up to realize they are being victimized. Hopefully she and all the celebrity advocates can learn a great deal about how an abuser draws in his victims and why his victims will do whatever it takes to calm him down before he “accidentally” hits her.
How can you admonish a thing you can’t even recognize when it’s in your face??
