Last week's big Harry Potter news story was J.K. Rowling's statement that Dumbledore is gay.
To see what readers of this blog thought, see the poll results below:
Question: My reaction to J.K. Rowling's revelation about Dumbledore:
- 43%: It surprised me.
- 37%: I suspected it after reading the 7th book.
- 12%: What???!!!
- 6%: I knew it all along.
In the midst of J.K. Rowling's announcement there was a sizable backlash of people who felt that this kind of information was unwanted and unnecessary. I posted a poll on this topic and found the readers of Wizards Wireless to be overwhelming in favor of Rowling providing details about the characters. For my opinion, see this post.
Question: My opinion about J.K. Rowling revealing additional details about the characters in the Harry Potter books is:

- 0%: I don't really care either way.
