I know that I haven't been around here in ages and now I keep getting harrassed to update. I don't think I've really posted since July, and a crapload has been going on. I've got a ton of work to do right now and I'm going to visit Jay in NC tomorrow, BUT I promise to play here more often cause I've accumulated lots of fun stuff recently. I actually wrote a whole post up about the Joe Torre/Yankees crap, but then decided against posting it because it helped me get it out of my system haha. But anyway, I'm gonna do a total cop out for now. At least it's funny...
For the record, I think that J.K. Rowling's announcement was awesome. Yeah, so what, Dumbledore's gay? It doesn't change the story, it doesn't distract from it (I don't think so at least), and I think that when people say, "Oh well, it doesn't matter that he's gay, what's the big deal?", that statement in itself IS the big deal. Time will tell if in the long run, it has an impact on literature or not, or whether or not society can handle a popular, powerful, beloved fictional character being a homosexual. Regardless, I think it's a very positive message she's sending to fans. Let's discuss it, if you are so inclined.
Related: I came across this article the other day, which gave me a chuckle. It's 7 clues that we should have picked up on that showed Dumbledore's sexual preference.
Anyway, shoutout to McSherry because I know she's the only one who'll actually read this :) I'll be baaaaack!
