There are a number of folks these days, females mostly, crying wolf about sexual harassment and their being assaulted sexually. I know because I've been unlucky enough to have been falsely accused of the latter. Many of those fabricating these allegations are either crazy or looking f... or a big payday. In my case it was the nutsoid angle. (What else could it have been being I'm strapped?) Having said that, this is not to minimize or discount the ones who have for real been sexually harassed and in real life been sexually assaulted. Where it concerns me, though, again, the rape allegations are or were completely false, and I must assume the same is so with numerous others in my situation. Still it's the anguish resulting from these accusations which brings me to the reason for this nonfictional book. I was retired from writing when last March 7, 2017 I was wrongly accused of rape by a total nutbag (whose name will not be disclosed, or anyone else's name associated with this case). Her two trailer trash friends bought into her lies, so I had three accusing me of rape. Not to stop there, that psycho skank had the cops, the DA and judge siding with her, thus making each of these by association liars with her as well. So I had in effect a whole fucking gang of prejudicial liars against me, all following the word of one liar. And together it has been such an emotionally harrowing ordeal in my older age. It was a real tag team of punishments and hates hard to describe. On the other hand---and here's the weird part of it---I'm actually glad it happened, echoing what I stated in Appendix VI, page 215 of my book. Reason being, the shock of those lies forced me to confront the largely repressed sexual assaults, the REAL sexual assaults, I underwent as a child, which I have been able to fully process these many decades later. Let's just say in view of this, unimaginably stressful and hurtful as the whole experience was, the tradeoff was ultimately worth it. So I reckon I didn't lose after all. Topically there is a lot more to this work than said awful experience. Included herein is the dualism and dogma of revealed religion, which also brought so much pain in my life, as all lies bring, with these being the unparalleled worst of falsehoods and worst of pain, in large part because of its extreme power of deceit. More generally, another lie (contradiction actually) I cannot reconcile is our fucked-up criminal justice system in America which allows killer police officers to gun down unarmed innocents and the over-militarized fucks invariably walking free of their crimes while the average citizen guilty of the same is always sent to prison for life or to Death Row. These and other issues will be examined. In so doing I wanted to follow a common theme throughout. So I chose the modern cultural phenomenon of ageism and the troubles we as older generation folk often have to contend with. I chose this theme mainly because all the shit I just mentioned occurred in these my older years. It just seemed somehow fitting to me is all. I'm like "thus saith the preacher" in Ecclesiastes, something of a grump, bitching about this and that "under the sun" (this is a phrase I use with some frequency) only to concede in the end "all is vanity" and "vexation of spirit." So it is. On the page following every concluding chapter I will add prayers of mine. We may call this, if you will, the sanity or spiritual part of this work. Update, January 12, 2018: Today in court I took the coward's way out and agreed to have my case dismissed "without prejudice." Meaning, the DA and judge still think I am guilty or possibly guilty and are effectively leaving the case open for the next 6 years so they may retry me at any time. Feeling belatedly humiliated by this realization, I wish those motherfuckers would retry me. Next time I'm going to jury trial to get the acquittal I deserve.
