What did they expect when they raised her that way?

The New York Post wrote about a formerly Haredi woman who's a lesbian, and nearly lost custody of her children over it. While I'm not happy she has to lead the kind of lifestyle she is now, and don't think it's a good example for children, I did notice this very telling paragraph that can explain almost perfectly why she wound up being drawn to the same sex:
Life wasn’t always so turbulent for Chavie, who had a typical upbringing — at least for someone raised in the ultra-Orthodox enclave upstate in Monsey, where she grew up. One of 10 siblings, she was forbidden from interacting with boys or anyone less observant than her. “When I was 12, my father gave me a prayer to start saying every day to get a good shidduch [arranged marriage],” she says.
And they're shocked she became a lesbian? If she wasn't allowed to interact with boys, it should be no surprise she could've succumbed to same-sex attractions, yet there's no doubt her family won't see themselves as the faulty party in any way, nor will they learn lessons from their mistakes, change their approach or even leave the insular Haredi community they're part of (which is bound to be Satmar, since they're a major presence in Monsey). Some of the cult leaders in the enclaves surely do this deliberately to cause all manner of insults to the intellect, under the full confidence their subjects won't complain or detach themselves from such an awful movement.

The Haredi clans who indoctrinated this approach are the guilty party who influenced the woman's mentality. But no chance they'll ever admit it or apologize.
