Doylist analysis: Both JK Rowling and SE Hinton have the same issue with their writing, where they fail to fully separate THEIR heterosexual woman perspective from the perspective of their teenage boy protagonists, which is why both Harry Potter and Ponyboy Curtis spend an absurd amount of time commenting on how attractive all of the teenage boys around them are. 

Watsonian analysis: Harry Potter and Ponyboy Curtis are both exceptionally bisexual and just havent realized it yet.
