    Well, that’s not necessarily true. Just because Harry didn’t know it, it doesn’t mean that other people didn’t, either. Though on second thought, that seems exactly the kind of detail Rita Skeeter would throw out, had she known it. *shrug*

    Or the wizarding community is less heteronormative than ours, however unlikely. It does seem like a juicy Rita Skeeter story.
