JK Rowling’s Response To Fan On Gay Dumbledore

JK Rowling loves tweaking the Harry Potter universe even though the books are finished, and one of her biggest reveals came in 2007 when she said that Dumbledore was gay. Now, even eight years later, people are still having trouble grasping the fact that gay wizards exist.

Twitter user @anakocovic21 tweeted to the author asking how Dumbledore could be gay, when she just couldn’t see him that way. Rowling, as succinct as always when dealing with things like this, responded with, “Maybe because gay people just look like… people?”Screenshot - 3_31_2015 , 5_00_05 AM

Rowling said when she revealed Dumbledore’s sexuality: “It has certainly never been news to me that a brave and brilliant man could love other men. He is my character. He is what he is and I have the right to say what I say about him.”

The incident is not the first time the author has defended making Dumbledore gay.

Late last autumn, Rowling, who campaigned against Scottish independence last year, responded to a fan who said he stopped being a fan after she revealed the character was gay.

“Nice how u blindsided us with that one. Enjoy your billion $ (sic).”

She told the former fan to follow Brian Souter on Twitter instead.Screenshot - 3_31_2015 , 5_01_31 AM

The Stagecoach founder funded a campaign to try and stop the Scottish government from repealing Section 2A of the Local Government Act. The amendment, repealed in 2000, stated that local authorities “shall not intentionally promote homosexuality or publish material with the intention of promoting homosexuality” or “promote the teaching in any maintain school of the acceptability of homosexuality as a pretended family relationship”.

Rowling tweeted again later on, thanking fans for sending her lovely messages and reassuring them not to worry about her.Screenshot - 3_31_2015 , 5_02_35 AM

  1. Dumbledore is gay? How? Who is his lover? Also a wizard? Mehn, their sex would be amazing.
    Spells like cum haltus, erectus lastimus, orgasmic maximus and kinky enjoymus would greatly come in handy.

  2. AnyiBaba!!!!!! Hahahahahahahahahahahahaa

  3. I don’t know, it seemed to me Dumbledore liked Madam Rosemeta…
