We know that in these times of political correctness that JK Rowling would have to include at least one homosexual person in her books. The only question is who?

Could it be Serius, Snape, Duddley, Draco or even Dumbledore himself? You decide.

Why limit yourself to the male characters? Why not Hermione or McGarniagaclalgl? Or Myrtle?

What about young Harry himself?

Or maybe the reason behind Voldemorts nasty behaviour is a serious case of repression?

Maybe Moaning Myrtle was chased into the bathroom by a bunch of mean homophobes!

Secret Admiration

Alone in a small dingy room he shares with his parents, his tears fall like raindrops. Without even a pillow to cushion his tear stain cheeks, the harshness of his reality sets in. Only a few days ago, he walked through the door of his home at Privit Drive only to find all of his belongings packed, and his father raving like a lunatic. "We have no choice," his mother exclaimed sternly, "I know Tom, if we stay here he is going to kill us - or worse!" "There is no way I am going to leave here to go and live with those freaks!" his father snorted back.

Duddley saw his mother expression become stone cold and the pupils of her eyes narrowing, moments later she threatened her husband with a stick and yelled out an expletive the like which Duddley had never heard before. The next moment she threw some weird powder into the fire place and Duddley watched as all of his belonging and his father disappeared into the smoke. Then she motioned to a now very frightened Duddley to follow her in.

Now here Duddley was stuck here in Wizzard land without even his two best friends Jeb Paine and George Panic for company, and stuck in a class with children four years his junior - the First years. Usually, Duddley's father stayed in the room, but today both were at a meeting with Professor Snape discussing Duddley's swearing habit - Duddley did not know what "imperio" meant but knew that his father quieted down a lot whenever his mother said it.

Although Duddley was sorted into Slytherin house, his mother had insisted that he stay with them at another part of the castle. Duddley could not understand why his Slytherine housemates turned up their noses at his muggle heritage, his cousin's friends thought of him as a joke, and even the little first years picked on him. What these little twerps lacked in brute force they made up for with their magical sticks. Even the tiniest of them were not afraid to call him "Mudblood" and "Awful Bud" to his face no matter how many times he tried to explain to them that his name was Dudley, not Buddy.

To make matters worse, Duddley's hormones have started working overtime and Duddley has his first crush on this gorgeous fair skinned blond with limpid blue eyes and a crooked smile that seemed more angel than human. His mother warned him to stay away from Veela and of their seductive powers, but only Duddley's fear of rejection kept him from proclaiming his love to Draco, his beloved Draco Mal...

Draco first realized that he was different than the other guys at Hogwards when the Bulgarian Quidditch team unleashed their mascots at the World Cup. He could not understand why his friends Crabbe and Goyle were acting so crazy over those wiggling icicles. Maybe he was able to resist the Veela because his blood was a bit more pure and his standards a bit higher. His father had instilled in him the importance of marrying the right type of girl, but none of the waspish girls swarming around him seemed worthy of his attention.

Then, out of the corner of his eye, he saw HIM. Draco remembers the way his he saw the way HIS chest jiggled like jello as HIS waddled towards the sorting hat. From the dimples in HIS cherub cheeks, to HIS stunned ocular expression and hair the colour of peach nectar - Draco knew that instant that he was in love with Quaffle Butt. What would his parents think if they found out that their only son was in love with a mudblood - he would have to keep that love secret.

A moment later Duddley imagined himself in a field full of Daizies out of breath with that Veela running towards him blond-haired blowing in the wind. Suddenly the images stood still as if it could last for ever and then there was nothing but snow. ... The picture cleared to reveal Sue Ellen's sister shooting Mr. Burns, then static ... Duddley eying his pillow greedily, then static ... George and Jeb spiking the punch (or was it Fred and George?), then static ... Image upon image revealed themselves then faded into steam and dropped away like rain - as Hermoine stepped out of the shower.

A weary Hermoine shakes her towel off of its hook and proceeds to dry herself off. Suddenly, an image more vivid than any of the others reveals itself. Now she is back in the woods after the World Cup and she remembers Malfoy. Wasn't it a coincidence that with all the commotion that Malfoy just happened to be there to warn her out of the path of the Death Eaters. And earlier when all the other boys were fixated on the Veela, Malfoy only seemed to have eyes for her. Hermoine cupped her hands to her face in a vain attempt to avoid throwing up. Was this a premonition?

Hehe. Harry would have certainly supported an invasion of Iraq. Discuss.

I personally think that sanctioning a war in Iraq gives us muggles a bad reputation - then again one has never seen GWB and Voldemort in the same place at the same time. And both Voldemort and GWB were named for their fathers - a coincidence? In the words of a certain Guardian: "I don't think so."

Now Dr. Conway, Michelle, Audra - anybody, you guess (and or fantasy) as to who in HP may be gay?

Oh hey! What about that little dude that follows Harry around with the camera?

Speaking of "who's gay"... does anyone remember Might Magazine's column on who's gay? While being totally politically incorrect, it was also funny as flue gas.

Not being gay I may be off base, but isn't something a little bit wrong looking for the stereotypical gay character in Harry Potter. Not politically correct wrong in the sense that it is something that shouldn't be done. Rather wrong in that it doesn't mirror real life, the gay people I know don't fit the stereotypes.

SNAPE: Flicka, the morals you pick up hanging around muggles. Tell me, do you use the imperio curse to get blubber-butt here ready for intercourse?

PETUNIA: That's discusting!

SNAPE: Discusting yes, but I did not hear you deny it. Bytheway, which potion did you use to snare this um prize - or was he so desparate for female company that "Hello" worked?

PETUNIA: Well I never!

SNAPE: That brings me to my next question. If you were ever to reverse that engorgement spell, I wonder who your little Duddy-kins would look like.

PETUNIA: Well like Vernon, of course.

SNAPE: Vernon old boy, I wouldn't be too sure of that.

PETUNIA: You ... you worm!

SNAPE: Ah you remember after all this time. Now Flicka don't you think its time that you remove that imperio curse.

PETUNIA: I don't think that would be a good idea. It''s for his own safety. You see Vernon's not used to ...

SNAPE: Dumbledore should be here any minute and while our old headmaster may be a little dense, he isn't stupid. Quick before he gets here.

VERNON: Petunia, who is this nutter and why did you bring me here.

SNAPE: Petunia? Who?

PETUNIA: Severus, for a guy who thinks he knows everything, I surprised that you didn't even know my given name. It wasn't until second year that I started going by Flicka.

SNAPE: How would I know that Flicka. Or did you forget that the only reason we were in third year together was because I skipped a year.

VERNON: But you told me ...

Dumbledore: May I come in? Severus Fl-Petunia I see that you've gotten reacquainted. Mr. Dursley, I am Albius Dumbledore Headmaster at Hogwards please to make your acquaintence.

SNAPE: Flicka er Petunia and Vernon were just telling me that the 5th years played a nasty trick on their son Duddley - that the boy thought the "i" word was a wizard swear - of all things! I have already rounded up the culprits and ...

Dumbledore: It's nice that you've taken care of that problem so swiftly. Now Severus would you be so kind as to escort Mrs. Dursley back to her room - there is a confused little boy there who deserves an explanation. I would like to talk to Mr. Dursley alone for a moment.

Vernon: You are not going to let her leave with ...with HIM!

Dumbledore: Mr. Dursley, you have much more to fear from another of your wive's former boyfriends than you do from Mr. Snape. Come with me to my office so that we can speak a bit more privately.

Vernon: And why should I go with you you f...

Dumbledore: Because Mr. Dursley I am the only person in this wholw place who is prepared both to tell you the whole truth and to give you a choice as to whether to stay at Hogwarts as my guest or return to the Muggle world. And after what I am about to tell you, you may wish to convince your sister Marge to join you, also at my request.

PETUNIA: Over my dead body!

SNAPE: You mean that there are actually muggles out there more obnoxious than hubby over there. Who would have known.

PETUNIA: You should talk.

SNAPE: And I plan to - as soon as she arrives. Or maybe I should let her talk ... you never know what will come out of the mouths of muggles.

DUMBLEDORE: Petunia. Severus. There is a frightened little boy who needs your help right now ... now grow up and attend to your duties as mother and yours as head of Slythern House. And Mr. Dursley come with me.
