Very often, women with allegations do not or cannot bring charges. Very often, those who do come forward pay dearly, facing off against a justice system and a culture designed to take them to pieces.

When my father left the orphanage he supported himself by gambling. He hustled pool, shot craps with loaded dice, played poker with marked cards, and past-posted horse races. The first and only woman he ever fell in love with was my mother. He was a teenager then, and she was four years older, a married woman with a son. My father hung around my mother like a lovesick steer. He ingratiated himself with her family, especially her father, a local club fighter. My father bankrolled that older man's fights and "waited patiently until my mother turned his way," said my brother. They were finally married when my brother was 9. I never knew that. I always thought they married when my brother was a baby.

After the game, my brother accused me of being selfish for playing hurt "just so you could score your points."
I believe my sister. This was always true as a brother who trusted her, and, even at 5 years old, was troubled by our father s strange behavior around her: climbing into her bed in the middle of the night, forcing her to suck his thumb behavior that had prompted him to enter into therapy focused on his inappropriate conduct with children prior to the allegations.
