VIDEO: The Inevitable Homophobic ‘Big Brother’ Dumbledore Debate of the Day

The first buzz-worthy fight from the Big Brother house emerged last night, and it centered around… Harry Potter? Yup, you heard that correctly. A roundtable discussion of Dumbledore’s sexuality sparked a heated confrontation between Kalia and Jeff, the latter of whom questioned the prudence of writing an allegedly gay character as the headmaster of a school in a fantasy land. According to him, it was irresponsible to portray a gay man working with and overseeing children. According to Kalia, there was nothing wrong with it.

Aside from the fact that the conversation is somewhat ludicrous, I have to agree with Kalia on this one. The only way I could possibly see Jeff’s point were if he were saying that it was irresponsible to perpetuate the “Catholic priest” stereotype that old men who work with children tend to be gay and predatory. However, I’m not sure he was saying that, and if he was, he certainly didn’t articulate it well.

The point is this: I think I need a cloak of invisibility to shield me from these inane debates. That’s what those cloaks do, right? I dunno. I’m rusty on my wizardry.

Yay Big Brother is back!
