Dumbledore’s Army Really More Like a White Party

Beyond flashing the audience at a recent press conference, JK Rowling also managed to add a little more fuel to the evangelicals’ book burning fire.

Responding to a question from a child about Dumbledore’s love life, Rowling hesitated and then revealed, “I always saw Dumbledore as gay.” Filling in a few more details, she said, “Dumbledore fell in love with Grindelwald…. Don’t forget, falling in love can blind us. [He] was very drawn to this brilliant person. This was Dumbledore’s tragedy.”

I’m guessing the tragedy was not being gay in itself, but falling in love with an a-hole like Grindelwald. Oh Dumbledore. Men are nothing but trouble. Surely someone of your wisdom and (ahem) life experience knows that. Although, it does explain his unnatural interest in wandlore. I’m just sayin’.
