Harry News

By now you may have heard that Dumbledore is gay. It was a piece of news that made me smile and then later frown. I'm happy that Rowling created such a strong, wise, and lovable homosexual character because it challenges the way some of us see sexuality within our culture. Yet while the sexuality of Dumbledore isn't of concern in any of the books I can't help but wonder if this outing will add fuel to the fire of those who are trying to rid libraries and schools of all things Potter. And if this is something that will be discussed in book news for the next couple of weeks. I'm already over it.
