American rocker BETH DITTO was terrified of coming out as a lesbian in her home town, but preferred that to the alternative - getting pregnant.
THE GOSSIP frontwoman was raised in Arkansas, where many locals viewed homosexuality as a sin, and thought girls should start producing children when they were barely into their teens.
