Is this article really needed?

Dumbledore was homosexual, Lord Voldemort was seemingly incapable of creating relationships with anyone nor feeling attracted for someone or something that wasn't immortality and power beyond measure. The information in this article are both wrong and pointless and a perfect candidate to deletion Wise Whim 08:48, July 10, 2010 (UTC)

My arguement

Well J.K. Rowling does use the word when describing Dumbledore. BachLynn23 brought up a good point, that being asexual is not a chosen preferance, but this is the HP world where talking about, and its possible Dumbledore used magic to supress his feelings. Also it is very possible that besides being evil, pysopathic,etc voldemort was asexual.72.229.249.242 20:03, September 20, 2010 (UTC)Donmax


While I think asexuality could easily apply to Voldemort, it definitely does not seem appropriate for Dumbledore regardless of whether or not J.K. Rowling used the term herself. She was probably making an offhand comment, indicating that Dumbledore basically became celibate, but suppressing one's sexuality isn't the same as being asexual. I really do think Dumbledore shouldn't be mentioned in this article at all, because his conflicted feelings for Gellert Grindelwald add to the complexity of his character-- it was one of the many complicated issues he was compartmentalizing, and, I don't know, the fact that all of that was hiding so much beneath his heroism and love of candy and affinity for lighthearted wordplay just makes him so... tragic.

I agree. Asexuality is a complete lack of sexual feeling. This definition clearly does apply to Dumbledore as Rowling has said he was sexualy attracted to Grindelwald. Damien O'Hagen
