dear god, even so, revealing that this master gay wizard is a homosexual has no real meaning,relevance,importance at all. she merely gave into the rumors and came up with some crack-pot fantasy story of dumbledore's escapades to further leech off the fanfiction.
This was a poor decision for J.K, as you said Tsu, stating this from the very beginning(hell, before the movies at least!) would have went over better.
jeezes, the fruity world of harry potter, A homosexual Old man and a strapping young wizard to be, what an uncanny duo!!
im actually more appalled at the fact she's left this secret(which obviously she knew the major reactions and publicity she would get by introducing a homosexual in a children's book, not saying its wrong, but you have to be a pretty ignorant author to somehow leave this to the last minute) to be uncovered at such a late time in HarryPotter(thats probably the reason why, HP's lost its appeal.
very bad taste
