I know there are a lot of people that don't like the Harry Potter series, and I have some questions for you.
Why don't you like them, for religious or political reasons, or because you don't care for the writing style or story?
Have you read the books?
Seen the movies?
Which ones have you read or watched?
What exactly did you not like about the story?
If you haven't read them or watched the movies, how can you possibly say you don't like them?
The thing is, I have no problem with people who have read something I have and just don't like it, but I have yet to encounter anyone who gave this series an acutal fair chance, that DIDN'T like it. I want to know if there's anyone out there that did read them and didn't like the story, or the writing style, or something else besides religious reasons for disliking them...

As to the other point you made ... I have no intention of making this question about whether or not Dumbledore should have been gay, or whether JKR should have shared this with us, but I feel I should make something a bit of a clarification. Dumbledore's sexuality was never actually "announced". This was not something that a press conference was created just to let everyone know. Rather, the information came out during a reading/Q&A session that JKR did after the release of book 7. It was a simple answer to the question of whether or not Dumbledore had ever been in love. The honest answer was, yes, he had. With *spoiler* Grindelwald. That is why their relationship was so intense and why he was unable to bring himself to defeat him for so long *end spoiler* If you were her, would you have lied, just to please the masses?
