When a fictional character is identified as gay by their creator but nothing in the source material explicitly reveals the character’s sexuality.
Or when an author wants the praise and asspats that go with writing a gay character but without actually taking any risks by including one in their narrative
Or when a characters sexual orientation is somewhat clearly lain out but isnt relevant at all in the telling of the story. Especially not since it is the sexual orientation of a headmaster seen through the eyes of a student. It’s none of Harry’s fuckin business who Dumbledore likes. No shit it wasn’t super played upon. Also does Dumbledore have to fit some steryotype? Did you want him wearing feather boas and speaking with a huge lisp while running into harry in a gay bar?! I think J. K. Rowling did a good job of not trumping him up to be some sort of cliche and not making his sexuality define him. And besides it’s not like she wrote him and then he changed to being gay. He was gay before that interview. Nothing changed.
