And awkward, lumbering Hagrid...

Had a bit of a problem with debilitating substance abuse.
-- NEW YORK -- British author J.K. Rowling has outed one of the main characters of her best-selling Harry Potter series, telling fans in New York that the wizard Albus Dumbledore, head of Hogwarts school, is gay.

Speaking at Carnegie Hall on Friday night in her first U.S. tour in seven years, Rowling confirmed what some fans had always suspected -- that she "always thought Dumbledore was gay."
The woman's already made, what... $1.12 billion dollars... but she's just gotta keep bangin' on the pump handle? Sheesh.

Apparently though... what a character in a much-loved children's book does with their genitals... is a pretty big deal to some folks.
The audience reportedly fell silent after the admission -- then erupted into applause. Rowling, 42, said if she had known that would be the response, she would have revealed her thoughts on Dumbledore earlier.
