TIME magazine: Dumbledore wasn't gay enough

Oh won't somebody just make the idiots stop publishing proof of their idiocy...

The gist of the article is that JKR shouldn't have bothered making the pronouncement about D being gay because he never acted gay. He never, like, mentioned to Harry, in the midst of imparting wisdom, "by the way, Harry, I'm gay". We never got to find out about any steamy gay interludes in the headmaster's office. And he died! And when gay characters die that means that they are "pay[ing] for their existence with death". And none of the minor characters was explicitly mentioned as gay which is, like, soooo unfair.

W. T. F.

You know, as far as my concern in this whole matter goes, Dumbledore never told Harry that he was straight, either. Why not? Because I'm imagining in between all the battling evil and earth-shattering revelations, the poor old guy didn't feel it necessary to confide in a student who he liked to have sex with.

Aaarrrrgggghhhh the stupid it hurts us precious.

You know, when I first saw the link in the post I thought 'ooh, the Onion -- how gay did we want Dumbledore?'

Then I realized the dude was serious. Which like you said, just hurts.

Because, you know, far be it from readers to have to pick up anything from the text instead of having D pause and go 'Oh, Harry, before you go off to kill Voldemort, you should probably know that I'm gay.'

Damn right.
having D pause and go 'Oh, Harry, before you go off to kill Voldemort, you should probably know that I'm gay.'

*giggles* Yeah that would be pervy. And nigh as inappropriate as him going, 'Oh Harry, before you go off to kill Voldemort, you should probably know that Prof. Trewlany and I have hawt secks all the time.'
