Seriously??? One of the most beloved characters of the Harry Potter series is no gay? Why at this point in the ballgame would we bring something up like this? Does JK think that now that the books are all sold and she’s made a ton of money, she can go back and change things?
Harry Potter fans, the rumors are true: Albus Dumbledore, master wizard and Headmaster of Hogwarts, is gay. J.K. Rowling, author of the mega-selling fantasy series that ended last summer, outed the beloved character Friday night while appearing before a full house at Carnegie Hall.
After reading briefly from the final book, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” she took questions from audience members.
She was asked by one young fan whether Dumbledore finds “true love.”
“Dumbledore is gay,” the author responded to gasps and applause.
She then explained that Dumbledore was smitten with rival Gellert Grindelwald, whom he defeated long ago in a battle between good and bad wizards. “Falling in love can blind us to an extent,” Rowling said of Dumbledore’s feelings, adding that Dumbledore was “horribly, terribly let down.”
To me this seems nothing more then pure political correctness. Why should this be in the book at all? I’ve had a hard enough time dealing with my love of the series amongst some of my Christian friends, now i have to deal with this as well?
