J.K. Rowling has upset a blizzardful of Special Snowflake, SJW, (Social Justice Warriors) Potterheads over the weekend when she confirmed that Sirius Black, one of the main characters in her Harry Potter series, is not gay.
It appears that many of them had decided that the prisoner of Azkaban and driving force in the fight against Voldemort was also a pioneering LGBT wizard. But when a Twitter user got the chance to ask Rowling about Black’s sexual orientation, she confirmed that he’s definitely a cis-wizard heterosexual.
The announcement left the Snowflakess crushed, they started a hashtag, “#JKRowlingIsOverParty, where they commiserated about their favorite author’s lack of interest in gay characters and went so far into histrionics (once again) to call her a traitor to the LGBT cause and, occasionally a “homophobe”—all because, as the author of the Harry Potter works, she had a different vision from her fans about the sexuality of a fictional character that she created.
I will never understand JK Rowling claiming she supports the LGBT community and then have just one canon LGBT character in her books.— Lindsey || 66 days (@HobbitLindsey) August 31, 2016

Despite the fact Rowling herself is also a vocal advocate for LGBT rights, most recently standing up to anti-gay bullies intent on harassing British Olympic diver Tom Daley after he failed to qualify for medal contention SJW’s continue to bash Rowlings and do what they do best. Pick on our allies because fighting the real enemies is just too hard and actually takes effort.
