Inspired to resuscitate (wow, that's a hard word) my blog since I'm sitting at my computer all day and all night anyway. (and all the time in between)

So one thing I had felt strongly about yesterday was this 'breaking news' of Dumbledore being gay. I think there are more important things to focus on in the world than to think about how it should be removed from libraries and school collections. Anyway, hasn't everyone already read it?

An article: "Seven Clues that 'Potter's' Dumbledore was gay' contains this clue. This is the stupidest f-ing thing I've ever heard.

The fact that so few of us realized he was gay. "No matter how many 'clues' I can put down that Dumbledore was gay, no matter how many millions of people have read these books again and again, Rowling surprised even the most die-hard fans with the announcement that Dumbledore was gay. And in the end, the fact that we never would have guessed is what makes Dumbledore being gay so real. So many times I have encountered friends who are gay that I never would have predicted. It has shown me that one's sexual orientation is not some obvious 'lifestyle choice,' it's a precious facet of our multi-faceted personalities. And in the end whatever the differences between our personalities are, it is time that our world heeds Dumbledore's advice: 'Differences of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open.' Today as I write this, I believe that it's time for our aims to be loyal to what the greatest wizard in the world would have wanted them to be: love."

Question: did the actors playing Dumbledore know he was gay?
