Why does she have to out him? Why? Why...WHY??? It's come more of a shock than his death, more shocking than Snape's evergreen love of Lily? Dumbledore as a character, lives and lives in my heart as one of the best potrayed and loved, until yesterday. She need'nt have said anything about anything about anybody.
And people, supposedly fans say, "By dubbing someone so respected, so talented and so kind, as someone who just happens to be also homosexual, she's reinforcing the idea that a person's gayness is not something of which they should be ashamed." OMG!
Who next? Perhaps, Sirius?
But I got to say, this line surely plucks the heart!"Falling in love can blind us to an extent (would) horribly, terribly let (us) down!"
Update: This seem to be quite an insight! Hear, hear!
