1 ENGL 1005H Love & Hate Mr. Hodges April 12, 2014 An Unbalance & Sexuality The American Psychological Association used to place homosexuality in the DSM, which is a book to diagnose mentally unstable patients. Like the APA, Jeanette’s church believes homosexuality is a disease, or worse, the devils work. Jeanette discovers through her life that she is not like normal girls, she is attracted to the same sex, and is open about it with her church. Her church preforms an exorcism and her mother punishes her by locking her up with no food. This however, does not cure her homosexuality. What the Bible teaches Jeanette is that the Lord will love all his children, and this means he will love her if she is gay, whether her mother or church loves her or not. In the novel Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit, the protagonist Jeanette is pushed around by her church and her mother because she is gay; however, the Lord will love her no matter whom she loves.
