Oh lord....

It had to happen.

*sigh*

2_lines   is normally a rather benign community, full of posts about love and life and moping, rather harmless and charming.

CUE HARRY POTTER WANK.

Some people are discussing the revelation that Dumbledore is gay and aliveinletters   decides that this makes Dumbledore's relationship to Harry somewhat awkward.

This, along with some other comments rather suprised me as the undertones weren't particularly positive. And so I posted this:

In just two posts, I read enough to make me very disappointed in 2_lines' reaction.

There's a certain undercurrent of homophobia in these comments that I dislike.



aliveinletters   comes in and tries to clarify by saying that Dumbledore's extreme interest in Harry is what makes her uncomfortable. This would make sense if Harry was just a normal student. But he's not.

When I try and point out that canonically, Dumbledore kind of HAD to take an interest and that that this probably had nothing to do with his sexuality, I am called closeminded.

(yes, I'm a huge HP nerd, no I don't care, yes this is grudgewank but I figured that it was still stupid)


EDIT: And she's made a pissy follow up post
