The Harry Potter franchise remains one of the most well-read in literary history. Just as well known is the fact that Dumbledore, the patriarch of Hogwart’s School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, is gay.
In the Los Angeles Times, it’s noted that “After she outed Dumbledore, Rowling said she viewed the whole series as a prolonged treatise on tolerance. Dumbledore is the personification of this. Like the LGBT community that has time and again used its own oppression to fight for the equality of others, Dumbledore was a champion for the rights of werewolves, giants, house elves, muggle-borns, centaurs, merpeople — even alternative marriage.”
But even after all of this time has passed (Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone first came out in 1997), one fan just wasn’t able to believe it:
Boom. The woman who invented Harry Potter just laid down a mother of a Reductor Curse.
