Honestly, I don't care that J.K. Rowling has outed her master wizard, Prof. Dumbledore, as gay. She had the good sense not discuss or disclose the detail in Children's books. Author's often know (or design, depending on your view) far more about their characters then they ever put into print. The trick is to only disclose those details that are vital to the immediate plot.
What bothers me about this confirmation is that it will proliferate in the seedy sub-genre known as FanFic (for "fan fiction) all across the internet. Do we really need even more stories of how Dumbledore initiated young Harry into the love that dare not speak its name?
Believe me, nothing is sacred in FanFic. Star Trek has been suffering from its fans for decades. Kirk, Spock and Bones have been stuck in a three-way triangle since Starfleet Academy, and the Enterprise was some kind of star voyaging orgy!
Ok, now that Shinobi.wind has left us to google "Star Trek Fan Fiction," let's talk about him behind his back...
