Re: Dumbledore is Gay

.....and?

I'm not saying, "who cares?" - I do have an interest the in the backstories of the characters, but really it seems like everyone expects you to have a really strong reaction to this news. It's either "WOO! YESSSSS!!!!!" or "EWW! NO! SATAN!"

As for me, it's just another descriptor to go in the box in my head marked Dumbledore: Old, powerful, fairly wise, grey haired, blue eyed, good teacher, worked for the greater good, and now, gay. It doesn't really change anything he did (perhaps sheds a little more light on why when it came to Grindelwald). He still was who he was, whom we loved, and had to get through all those experiences he had to become the person that we knew.

So yeah. Interesting, but not earth shattering. I don't think JKR necessarily concealed this fact on purpose - the books are about HARRY, after all, and his journey - but if she did, I certainly can understand why. She had enough nutters after her for the whole witchcraft thing.
