Re: JKR: "Dumbledore is gay"

Second that, Tulsa! My concerns are entirely parental. The more I think about it, the more completely bewildered I am that she could be so irresponsible!

Re: JKR: "Dumbledore is gay"

Huh? Are you reading the same posts I am? Where's the homophobia? I don't see it, and I certainly haven't posted any bigoted opinions! The issue IS NOT gay vs. straight! That is a very...

Re: The Press and The Story Not Told

Re: Open Letter To Jkr- Please Help

I, too, am at a loss in my attempt to discern her motives. And I agree----it is absurd----extremely so----I think she made herself look like a complete idiot.

However......SPF has a point.....you...

Re: Final Thoughts?

I am re-reading DH (to my 8 year old daughter) and am finding a few nuggets I missed the first time.
