Dumbledore's chamber of secrets revealed

Harry Potter author JK Rowling has revealed that one of her characters, Hogwarts school headmaster Albus Dumbledore, is gay.

She made her revelation to a packed house in New York's Carnegie Hall on Friday, as part of her US book tour.

She took audience questions and was asked if Dumbledore found "true love".

"Dumbledore is gay," she said, adding he was smitten with rival Gellert Grindelwald, who he beat in a battle between good and bad wizards long ago.

Why did she have to go and ‘out’ Dumbledore? Why couldn’t sexuality be kept out of Harry Potter? Most of us are sick of homosexual propaganda. We couldn’t care less if someone we knew was gay but we don’t want their propaganda to be constantly forced fed to us.

I wonder if I can get 7 years for saying that? I wonder if the next story there will be a homophobic wizard getting dragged before a wizard court and sentenced to 7 years for homophobic remarks.
