J.K. Rowling says that Dumbledore is gay. i shared this story with a Harry Potter-addicted friend and she went on and on about how this makes sense considering...[insert list of factors written in the books].
but I feel that this news is awfully convenient, now that the book series is over. it appears that J.K. didn't want to offend part of her audience, which may have affected book sales. now, she can say whatever with little damage.
