How is my character a mary sue?

Ok here's what going on. I do a chracter, and for some reason people say it's a sue because I said her mother died, and her dad is a drunk. People go through stuff like this everyday where I live. So why is this? Don't people go through stuff like death, rape, in real life.

Update:

It cant be impossible. How is that? People die everyday, people are raped and abused everyday, I dont get it?

    Mary Sues typically have tragic, horrible pasts, which makes them more loved and pitied by other characters. It is totally possible to have a character like that and her not being a Sue, but most people take it too far. The combination of flawless features, an angst-ridden backround, and amazing abilities makes good authors/RP's barf. I don't know enough about your character to help you determine if she needs a little work, but you can e-mail me at riga@mailpuppy.com for that.
