Our poster is so desperate to find offence at Fingolfin *crossing his legs*, yet not one peep from him at John Howe and Ted Nasmith portraying the High King of the Noldor as a blond. It's almost as though this rant is less about accuracy and more about homophobia.
Actually, I share your dislike of the very idea of a blonde Fingolfin. However, we should be more accepting of homophobic views on a Tolkien forum (though obviously not homophobia for the sake of mere homophobia). JRRT was a devout Catholic, as many of you know, and had many traditional views regarding sexuality, gender and race.
