The family's bigotry is just another reason of many to move away from the buybull belt.

Perhaps the abuser having been a man they think " that's different " ( i.e. all right ).. Such is the outstanding stupidity of some people ..She should pack and move out, because with such relatives, who needs enemies ?!

The writer is making an assumption that her being molested as a child a) is related to her general dislike of men and b) is questioning if it might have lead to her sexual attraction to women.

The problem in both cases is that there's no way to know if she wouldn't feel exactly the same about both genders had she *not* been molested as a child.

I grew up with a basic dislike of men, too. I was never molested by anyone. But I was growing up in a family full of adult men that were major a-holes and not worth their own salt. They were womanizing drunks with the maturity of 11-year-olds.

When I finally got older and started meeting men that weren't flaming a-holes and stumbling drunks, I realized that it wasn't *all* men that were the problem, just the ones I'd been around all my life to that point.

I'm glad Abby gave her the advice she did about seeking out a therapist. While it's perfectly normal to be gay and not realize it until after several failed straight marriages (especially in women, it seems), but it's not normal to dislike an entire gender based on the actions of one dirtbag.

What freaking right do they think they have to tell her she needs to move. It's her home! Nice family she has to rather her be dead than gay. I'm with Abby, I wonder what happened with the family and the molester. Did these family members claim to be Christians and I missed it? Please tell me they didn't.
