Dumbledore is gay

Well, I really can't think of a better way to battle homophobia in schools. For those of you who haven't heard - Albus Dumbledore was outed as gay by his author J.K. Rowling. Such a respected character - someone who will stay for several generations through the books - is bound to help readers realize that being gay is ok.

This puts quite a different light on Albus' friendship and obsession with Grindelwald. At least now I understand Dumbledore's choices of action and delay in confronting Grindelwald later in life - love can make anyone blind.

Well, if Albus were still alive, we would ask him the same questions as we asked Harry:
  1. Are the fireworks bigger in wizard or muggle sex?
  2. Is it appropriate to use magical spells during love making, or is this considered cheap?
  3. Are wizards immune to STDs and unwanted pregnancies? If not, are physical magical forms of contraception and protection more effective?
The news also of course gives some Christians another excuse to call for a ban on the books. Previously the Harry Potter series were criticized as corrupt and satanic.
