Food for Thought: “Why, Yes, I Am an Islamophobe”

From the Web site Altmuslimah comes this story by a lesbian woman struggling to live within a conservative Muslim society:

Even if I were not a lesbian I would find it difficult to make myself “available” to men because that is exactly what I have been expected to do since childhood. I was no stranger to men but could never see them as potential spouses or life partners. From a young age, unbeknownst to my parents, both family and non-family members sexually molested me repeatedly. When I failed to grow into the feminine man-loving woman society wanted me to be attempts were made to “fix” me through corrective non-consensual sex. Attempts were also made to force me to marry.
