"Dumbledore Is Gay."

So J.K. Rowling announced to a bunch of munchkins last week. I'm not sure why she announced it, since it adds nothing to either the character or the story and risks losing so much, risks distracting so much. It puzzles me as a writer. It's surely no "Baldur is dead!" kind of announcement.

So move along, people. Nothing to see here. Further up and further in.

"Nothing to see here."

Indeed.

Fr Freeman's post "A Single Word Shall Fell Him" is an excellent look at this announcement and childhood. Also, read the comment by "Death Bredon" attached to the post - he makes some excellent points about the cowardice of such an announcement now, as it were, at the end of all things.
