Time: Put Dumbledore Back in the Closet

Well, about a week and a half ago, J. K. Rowling, “outed” one of her main characters from Harry Potter, Professor Albus Dumbledore as being gay, citing some very well hidden hints throughout the book.  Are you serious!  You’re going back and making a character gay – come on.

In my mind, this is just a publicity stunt for Rowling now that all of her books are done – not promoting the acceptance of homosexuality as she claims.  If her true interest were to promote homosexuality, she wouldn’t have waited until after all of her books were already out and “safe” in the hands of readers.  I think it was a pure publicity stunt.

And a little off topic – not EVERY book/TV show has to have a gay person – there aren’t nearly as many homosexuals in the world as the media portrays, but that’s off topic.

Anyway – I think it was stupid of Rowling to pull this stunt, once she could only gain from it – if she really cared about homosexuality, she would have done this at the beginning, but that would’ve meant risking her now millions of dollars.
