Here, a poem: [abridged]

cracking voice of “us”-
Dissonance springs from
Making a mistake
(question-mark)
Act I: Finale
wake up
intentions
love, the ability to:
Time: N/A
words form wilderness
wordless world- meaning
born by void in brain-
storm- avoid no
seeds sew heart-cloth -
remember home- no where
is water lily self-
home is crow, crane-
befriend
the creature home
whatever
anything
means.

3AM

_/ Here, a poem: \_

_/ Playing music:

transform

joy/pain/strangeitude of “me”

into melody/harmony/cracking voice of “us”-

Dissonance springs from “why”

And “Hallelujah” \_

_/ Making a mistake in front of someone:

in front of all

the world, a stage

contains

(question-mark)

characters-

Act I: Finale

"This Is No Rehearsal" \_

_/ Doubting- Questioning- Unsure of- my actions:

I can wake up

I can come to

better understand

my intentions- \_

_/ This poem, writing-

love, the ability to:

Time: N/A \_

_/ 4 pm \_

_/ “Undertow” \_

_/ Writing a poem, reading this and that: \_

_/ find words form wilderness

in wordless world- meaning

borne of restless void in brain-

storm- avoid no weather

patterns repeat patterns

repeat patterns reap-

seeds sewn to heart-cloth like water lilies float-

remember home- get rid of no where \_

_/ pause- \_  _/ home is water lily self-

home is crow, crane, ghost, plant- \_

_/ above all other ‘above all else’s’, \_

_/ above all else, befriend \_

_/ the creature home \_

_/ you call your self- \_

whatever all this

if anything

means.

Was she going to slap you because you never in any way made him gay in the actual books, taking zero risks/doing absolutely nothing for gay characters in literature, and only announcing your “authorial intent” afterwards for a cheap shot at looking like an ~ally~

^^^

Gay people are just normal people. We are not told about any of the Hogwarts professors love lives, other than Snape, and it would be completely out of character for Dumbledore to walk around telling everyone about his sexuality.

Did you want her to make him dress in glittery platform boots, a crop top, and decorate his office in rainbow flags to make it more obvious for you? Would that be enough of a stereotype to appease you people? Or what? Please tell me. I’d like to know how you think a gay character is supposed to be portrayed.

And did you miss the Grindelwald chapters in the ‘actual books’? Or was that also not obvious enough for you? Did Dumbledore need to whisper “always” wistfully in order for you to connect that he had romantic feelings for Grindelwald? Maybe you are American and need them to gaze longingly into each others eyes with awkward close ups of their fingers almost grazing each other that Hollywood thinks means ‘true love’. 

It didn’t fit into his relationship to Harry to ever say “I’m gay”, and so it was not stated explicitly (you might have noticed the book was told from Harry Potter’s perspective).

The point is though, that he is a homosexual, well respected, powerful, and very loved wizard- and his sexuality doesn’t matter because no one else thinks it matters. a.k.a. no one cares that he loves men, and that is wonderful. 

^ THANK

BOOM

Reblogging for last commentary because I really appreciate that. It challenges that many of us see hetereosexual as the norm. We really didn’t know about love lives of the professors in the book and yet we know that Rowling still made her characters way more whole than they were portrayed in the books (just check out the extra details in Pottermore (psst. add me: FireboltLight20324). I think Dumbledore being gay does normalize other sexual orientations within the wizarding world. This isnt to say that HP was a perfectly feminist world by any means.

River Street

Had I that day alone–

that day to have not

known you, then,

I would’ve rolled

along that old

unobstacled

road-more-like a

wood-beside-the-water

path.

I would have

two-wheel rolled

a– long– with– fre– quent–

bumps, but on the wood

I would have rolled along

without a fall– (ing for-

ward)––– toward the rush

of River Street where I grew

up when I stepped outside

the thick flat ladder crosswalk lines.

I grew when I learned that lines

and motion are what define…

I followed invisible tracks

through Michigan snow,

dragging feet to make lines

to make a new road to make

a new world to do ––– something–––

with my self.

Up and down I grew when

I cycled up River Street and

stopped down by the

wooden river path,

the path right by the river.

I was that day alone

It was that day I learned

I know and

I know

and I know you

and I

not quite.

“It pains me to think that girls are being taught to hate other girls. Society has us pitted against each other and seems to want to keep us from being whole and healthy as individuals and as a group. We should be and need to be celebrated by each other so that we can stand united and fight against injustice toward our gender.” - Sarah McDonald, Why Women Should Hate the Patriarchy Instead of Each Other
