I wonder if any of these women accusing Donald Trump are basing their experiences on so called "recovered memories" or "repressed memories". The
concept of repressed memories became quite popular in the 1970's and 1980's - by that I mean the belief that a person who experiences severe trauma
will involuntarily suppress the memories of the event deep within their subconscious mind, and that these memories can be "recovered" through the use
of hypnosis or trauma therapy.
This is similar to way supposed alien abductees claim to recover their memories through hypnosis. Though it's been mostly debunked in more recent
decades, testimony of such trauma from recovered memories once led to innocent people being convicted of sexual abuse; in some cases people claimed in
court to have recovered memories of vast networks of satanic abuse, the basis of which was used to convict several individuals who were later proven
innocent. In some cases, such as the Oildale, CA case, people spent nearly two decades in prison based on memories of events that never happened.
I hope the media is checking out these Trump claims thoroughly. They need to ask the alleged victims if they were aware of the events when they
supposedly occurred, or the next day, or twenty years after the fact.
