Fans didn’t ‘make’ Dumbledore gay, J.K. Rowling is the one who announced it


For all the controversy about Dumbledore’s sexuality, claiming that it was the ‘internet’ who created the narrative is outrageous because J.K. Rowling announced it.

J.K. Rowling is now known for giving us information after the series has ended and now, somehow it is the fault of fans for insisting that Dumbledore is gay. When, you know, that’s not the case in the slightest.

Basically, Rowling announced that Dumbledore was gay, a fact that we’d all love to believe but then again, she’s done nothing to make it clear that it will exist in the world of films or in the books. That being said, the idea that fans are the reason that Dumbledore is gay just shows that they’re not trusting Rowling’s decisions. She is the one who said it, we’re just holding her accountable for her words.

If she didn’t say that Dumbledore was gay, we wouldn’t have cared. But she did and then she brought young Dumbledore into the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them franchise and is still giving us confirmation without following through in the actual series.

So it isn’t the internet who is making Dumbledore gay, it was Rowling. And with that, we just want her to practice what she is telling us in regards to her characters. No more of this ‘oh it happened, you just didn’t see it!’ stuff. Let us see Dumbledore’s past and let us get to know these characters on a deeper level so that we, as fans, can enjoy everyone aspect of the series!

dark. Next. Apparently there were always clues about Nagini being a human before?

Do you think this was a ‘fandom’ thing or is it accurate that we’re mad about Rowling not showing us Dumbledore’s relationship with Grindelwald? Sound off in the comments below and let us know what you think!
