Just one question

OK. So let me get this straight (so to speak).

J.K. Rowling has come out and said... excuse me. Let me rephrase that.

In an interview, author J.K. Rowling said that headmaster of her school for wizards, Dumbledore, is gay. Not that she ever made him do anything homosexual, but that she kept that fact in mind.

This has caused great consternation among the right wing.

So now, we are supposed to be concerned with the intent of people who don't exist. Not their actions (which never happened), but the non-actions (which also never happened). Is that about right?

We are supposed to get outraged by the things that aren't done by fictional characters, in a world that likewise doesn't exist.

I think my brain just exploded.
