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.   

"...this time Toxie and his blind platinum-blonde girlfriend with enormous garbonzas have to fight a bunch of terrorists called the Warner Brothers who machine-gun video stores who refuse to accept the new 'top 20 titles only' policy of the evil Apocalypse Inc. 'But we want VARIETY,' the residents of Tromaville, New Jersey, whine. And then the Warner Brothers blow their heads off."-Joe Bob on THE TOXIC AVENGER III: THE LAST TEMPTATION OF TOXIE
