Love the Ford memes.
Would someone be so kind as to explain the bottom half?
The internet has gone bananas because Mrs J.K. told the world that, I think Dumbledore from the Potter movies, is gay.
And she pictured all the readers as gay, too, I believe.
Dumbledore being gay is a tame and actually reasonable one. If you want to see messed up ones, look up (carefully) the Hufflepuff masturbation tweet.
But that was twelve years ago!?
I think he might of really liked little boys with glasses to.
The internet really came together on this one. There are some really good and definitely AUP breaking responses floating around.
Lady Rowling turned herself into the bullseye of the month with her story telling.
It's was actually a commentary on a dvd extra for Fantastic Beasts that got the ball rolling, not a tweet.
Her parents too.
I don't know, it was a massive story at the time in the UK, perhaps it never made it out to America-land, though that's unlikely given when it was announced? This is from Reddit in 2013, the story's historic by that point having been big i. Evidently the current audience think it's a new story? If you Google "dumbledore gay" (don't look at the images ) and restrict the search to 2007 there are tens of thousands of stories about it from news sites all around the world.
So it's interesting - why is the story regaining such traction now? The factoid isn't in the books or films so is there a whole new generation of fans who hadn't heard about it?
The NY Time arts story is a good one
Not that there's anything wrong with that.
The I-can't hand-my-homework-in-with-your-writing enthusiast is either concerned her star is fading and trying to stay relevant, or promoting some dog-apple spin-off or other from her definitive, derivative septology. She keeps on retconning the works with random statements of fact that have no supporting evidence from the tiresome tomes.
The sudden rise of the meme comes from her DVD commentary on one of the spin-offs where she says two of the characters (Bumbletrump and Crankelstein or something... everything has painfully twee [or blatantly ripped off] names) had it off, despite never having written about it, or included it in the films, even including the film she's doing the DVD commentary for.
So now people have made it into a meme where Little Miss No-Actual-Middle-Name will just suddenly interject with a "fact" about one of the character's sexuality (the "Nobody:" version) or where she is the arbiter in chief of who is gay and who isn't - you can't be gay until she's told you that you are.
I hate knowing any of that.
Dumbledore being gay was one of the least surprising revelations she's made. It's hinted at quite a bit in the Deathly Hallows book, and its only because his relationship with Grindelwald is a plot point in the new Fantastic Beasts films that it's become apparent to everyone.
It's a great piece of internetting, because I haven't seen anyone being upset about them being gay (there will be people crying about it, no doubt) but that all the mockery is all about her pointless talking about unwanted information.
It seems also that you hate, or at least dislike her, as much as the rest of us.
Apparently, Harry’s mum was a hooker. It’s not in the books or films but...
Go on, I mean it.
Wait. I read that as 'Say-at'. Do people still call them 'Seet'?
I did until I was 10 years old. I think most people do.
I bloody hope not
