Remember when we found out Dumbledore was gay? And that JK had always intended him to be so? My bullshit meter rang fairly strong on that one. It’s not that I don’t think Dumbledore could’ve been gay or straight or anything in-between. It’s more that his sexuality, for me, is simply not present in the text. And it doesn’t need to be for his individual story and the larger stories surrounding it to work. And to apply that lens after the fact is silly. If she intended for it to be on the page, then it would be on the page.
