Draft 1: The “Shit Cishets say about LGBTQIAP+ representation in Harry Potter” Bingo card.
Not a headcanon, but i feel it fits
Seriously, though. Dumbledore’s sexuality was in no way relevant to the books. It didn’t need to be brought up. At all. Why does his sexuality matter? It doesn’t. He’s gay. He’s not made to be obviously gay. That isn’t his character. His sexuality doesn’t define his character, and it WOULD have been inappropriate for Harry to know his sexuality. IT. IS. NOT. RELEVANT.
1. Yes it was relevant. It was integral to his entire backstory with Gellert. It is just as important to the plot as Snape’s feelings for Lily.
2. It matters because LGBTQIAP+ youth deserve representation.
3. No, his sexuality doesn’t define his character, but if it’s supposed to be part of his character, then it should actually be stated.
4. No, it would not be any more inappropriate than for Harry to know about Hagrid, or Remus, or Snape’s sexuality (which he did.)
Stop trying to defend the disgusting heteronormative portrayal of LGBTQIAP+ characters in Harry Potter.
‘political correctness kills creativity' if you can't create something without furthering the oppression of minorities, you aren’t a very creative person.
We all know that feeling, vending machine
*makes heterophobic text post*
It’s a metaphor, see? You make a mean text post, but you don’t back it with thousands of years of violently-upheld institutional power, so it doesn’t have the power to actually hurt anyone.
best one yet
