I think the point of view presented is an interesting way to study a piece of written work, because works of "old" do exist where there are undertones, but, and I am reading the books for the first time, and I see no such instance of homosexuality being deliberately written into them.

As for this remaining debate, I don't feel that it is anywhere near to the original Tolkien debate anymore. BOTH sides agreed that it was not deliberately written into any of the books. Thank you.
