Why did JK Rowling reveal that Dumbeldore was gay? What's the point? And who gives a damn? Of course, I have no issue with homosexuality. But I don't quite understand the point of, all of a sudden, after the last book as been printed, stepping up and saying, "Oh, so and so was gay. You didn't know???"
Yall know me. I don't give a damn about Harry Potter, nor his little wizard friends nor his teachers and all the rest of those goblins and whatnot. I read the first book only because it was a gift from a friend. And, yes, it was entertaining, but I grew burned out on the Harry Potter craziness over the last few years.
Quite frankly, Damn Harry Potter.
But, here's why this bothers me: Who cares? Was it necessary? What did she think she'd be doing by suddenly making one of the characters gay. Now, all of a sudden we're going to have everybody and their mamma reading the books AGAIN, going through them and looking for clues. Then you're going to have all of the right wing fools protesting and shit, saying that kids should not be subjected to reading Harry Potter.
And on and on.
Screw Dumbeldore, Harry Potter and JK Rowling.
No pun intended.
