This is a way of blocking your opinions, denying your reality and shutting down the conversation.
If you say something about the abuse disguised as a joke in front of other people, your abuser will likely either give you a hug and say he didn’t mean it or look at you like you’re crazy (discounting your reaction). After all, abusers need to make sure other people believe you are overly emotional so their stories and lies about you will stick.
I should have paid attention to the first time Dr. Dirtbag ridiculed me about my weight. We were eating dinner in front of the TV and out-of-the-clear-blue-yonder, he said, “Ya know, the reason fat people are fat is they don’t know when to stop eating. Your plate is so clean when you get I through eating I don’t even have to wash it.”
Discounting is an attempt to deny that the victim of the abuse has any right to his or her thoughts or feelings. It may come out as criticism—but criticism of a particular kind. The abuser may tell the victim on a regular basis that he or she is too sensitive, too childish, has no sense of humor, or tends to make a big deal out of nothing. The abuser thereby denies the victim’s inner reality, indirectly telling a partner that how they feel and what they experience are wrong.
