    NOOOO. Dumbledore does not love, alright? So he's not gay. Nothing against gay people, but good ol' dumbledore is way above human feelings and way below it at the same time... So no *shakes head in deniance* he's not gay.

    It IS a way to keep people talking. However, I must wonder whether that was the reason to release him from the closet. Neither can I imagine that it was the anticipation of getting people to talk about whether this was a publicity stunt. Which it will be, so I am out of here :)

    I have read other places that this "changes everything". Which I really dont see why, gay, straight. It doesnt matter.

    The only reason it matters to me is because it makes the whole thing with Grindelwald make more sense. Otherwise, nope, doesn't make any difference to me. :)

    No, cause I never even thought about his sexual orientation. Hey, old people don't have sex so it doesn't matter. ;)


    Love the thread title. lol

    yeah to be serious...when you're reading HP, the sexuality of Dumbledore is not the first thing that comes in my mind (otherwise Padmé would be VERY worried lol). It shouldn't matter in the first place...His sexuality has no purpose to the story so why bother what it is?! I don't mind that he is homosexual but it's pointless to reveal so...

    I never really liked Dumbledore.. But I don't think it changes that much about the story. It helps you to understand things better, I guess.
    But seriously, JK Rowling chose the right moment to tell people this, right? Obviously it was a publicity stunt.
