So I got an e-mail sent to me that “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling “outed” the wizard Dumbledore. I thought it was a joke e-mail, of course, until I read the story.
I must say, it’s odd that she chose to do this … I mean, knowing he’s gay does nothing to add or take away from the books (I read the final two after watching the first five movies).
Read the story here.
A brief snippet from the article: On the one hand, Dumbledore is Rowlings’ creation, and she can make him anything she wants. On the other hand, this whole revelation just feels very weird after we thought we knew this character. Which may, of course, be the point.
