Well that certainly clears up a lot of things for me. /sarcasm

Dumbledore's sex life never entered my mind while reading the books, I'm not sure what Rowling's point is with this revelation.

It's got to be for the controversy. The seventh book has been on the shelves for a while, and she's trying to stay in the headlines.

Or maybe it's totally sincere. Some authors feel a need to give their characters attributes that aren't necessarily required by the story, as a writing tool or just cool facts for the fans. Still, I can't see her coming up with this when she first envisioned the character. His sex life would be the last thing I'd consider. Probably something she thought of as a response to speculation by some of the more obsessive fans.

I think you were right the first time, AndyC.  With the series put to bed, Rowling's probably missing the attention.  I agree it's unlikely she originally wrote a gay backstory for her wizard archetype, though its possible.

"The best parts are watching Sly go through the full range of emotions: deadpan, deadpan with raised eyebrow, deadpan with quivering lip. There's also a great sequence where Sly drives his VW Beetle down the interstate for about 20 minutes, staring dramatically through the windshield.."-Joe Bob on A MAN CALLED RAMBO

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
