Amy Duggar King Blames Josh Duggar’s Shameful Crimes On The Family’s Male Superiority IBLP Beliefs
The former reality TV star has not bitten back on her Duggar relations’ shameful secrets, and you can imagine she won’t start biting back now. In the wake of Josh’s 2021 arrest for possession of child sexual abuse materials, Amy became one of his, if not his most, vocal critics.
In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, the Duggar cousin opened up about the time she confronted Josh regarding the way he inappropriately molested his young girls, including his own sisters. Seems like Amy King is the tigress of the Duggar family.
Amy King – Opens Up About Confrontational Conversation She Had With Josh Duggar
Some years back, Josh, 35, confessed to having touched multiple young girls inappropriately – including his sisters Jill (Duggar) Dillard and Jessa (Duggar) Seewald – when he was aged 12 to 15.
When all this was happening, Amy was kept in the dark, even though she occasionally filmed with them at the time, and only found out about it when the rest of the world did in 2015.
“I was pissed. I felt like I wasn’t worth telling … that they didn’t want to protect me,” Amy, 36, said. “They didn’t want anyone to know, [and] they wanted to keep it inside their little bubble. Secrets breed in the IBLP. Things are hidden.” Amy courageously decided to confront Josh about it. Recalling the day it happened, Amy said, “He was staying in a trailer and I went in there and I said, ‘How could you do this?'” And I was very bold about that.”
Amy then said Josh confessed to not attempting the same thing on her because he knew better. She claimed that the now father of seven was aware of his actions and the hurt they would cause, but chose to do it because he knew the girls won’t tell on him.
Amy King – Blames IBLP For Josh’s Addiction To Sexual Activities
When it came to accounting for the way Josh did things without caring for their consequences, King blamed the family’s constant message of male superiority within the family’s Institute in Basic Life Principles religion.
“The IBLP prizes the first child, [and] it doesn’t get much better than if it’s a son. They hold the family name and the family value,” she explained. “If you’re valued from the moment you’ve been born and people hide your secrets and cover up things, and you never get in trouble for the things that you’re doing, I believe you just become numb to how the world really is, and how the law really is. It’s so sad how far it was taken, where he thought he could get away with anything.”
