Why I’m Skeptical of Abuse “Revelations” In So Called Memoirs Written For Profit

I’m skeptical often of people who put accusations of abuse and such into so called memoirs etc. that they’re writing for profit. Especially if they NEVER made the claims until they were trying to drum up interest in said books.

It’s a well known, albeit unfortunate fact that in our society, scandal sells.

Also, claiming victimhood of some form or another is en vogue these days, unfortunately. People who claim victimhood for attention or profit do a disservice to people who’ve actually been abused, and they ruin lives and legacies w/their false accusations as well, sometimes irreparably.

It’s also interesting to me how many times, such accusations are made after the accused has died, and can’t challenge (or at least answer) such charges. In such cases, it’s the family of the accused that suffers the fallout.

False Rape Accusations & Accountability

What I am about to write may tick off certain people, but it needs to be written. Sometimes, false rape accusations are made against people. The reasons for the false accusations may be as varied as the accusers themselves.

For the record, I am not saying, or implying in any way, that ALL rape accusations are false, just that false accusations do at times happen.

Just as rape is wrong, so is falsely accusing someone of such a crime. I believe that just as a rapist ought to be held accountable, a person who levels false rape charges against someone ought to be held accountable as well.
