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.

Apparently everyone needs to jump on the bandwagon with this.

The only relevant point in the article was when the writer questioned why Rowling didn't put this in the books. I mean, if it was relevant to the plot, why isn't it there? I can't imagine an extra few lines of dialog would have affected the length of the books all that much.
Probably nowhere, as it really isn't relevant to the plot.

But that still begs the question, why bring it up at all? Unless she saved it for the "Author's Annotated Version", with the special extra wide margin with comments on how the characters developed, thoughts behind scenes, etc. *eye roll*
Sometimes I think she just *likes* pressing Vader's buttons.

And I guess she's in a position at the moment where she doesn't really care about the reactions.

And while he's very liberal, at least I prefer Scott Adam's methodology in that he's actually interested in the responses his comments provoke.

Because authors are evil and love stirring up s#!t, duh.

Maybe she'll live more information in the HP Encyclopedia :D
