That's quite possible. The whole thing is quite mind-boggling to me. It flickered through my mind that perhaps Dumbledore was gay while I was reading the last book, but then I thought perhaps he just had made a friend for life. Either way was fine for me, but I didn't feel like I needed to have it confirmed either way. It was in his past, and it was a profound moment in his life. I got that.

Interesting article. Thanks for sharing. The article linked to that article (at the bottom) was a pretty awesome read as well. I'm glad I read the books and stayed out of the "media" of it all.
