So, the overall message of your little collage is – women and children make false allegations of sexual abuse because (a) they are easily suggestible and unable to differentiate fact from fantasy and (b) it’s a good way of getting attention and money.
Doesn’t look like “skepticism” to me – looks like misogyny.

No one disputes that children are sometimes molested by adults, or that daughters are sometimes molested by their fathers. Recovered memory was a destructive fad that peaked around 1993, and yes, its adherents were easily suggestible and unable to differentiate fact from fantasy. I don’t think any of it stemmed from a need for attention and money.

False allegations of child sexual abuse by children are rare

Recovered memory has been proven to exist and has high accuracy rates.
