Alan Turing: Gay Autism Martyr



"Turing believes machines think,
Turing lies with men,
Therefore machines do not think."

The Telegraph - Britain still owes Alan Turing a debt



" [...] Alan Turing was an absolutely vital part of the British war effort and one of the most important people of the 20th century. It is without question that his efforts helped shorten the war significantly, saving the lives of millions of people.

And yet, he was treated badly. A burglary at his home led Turing to admit to police that he was a practicing homosexual, at a time when it was illegal in Britain. This led to his arrest and conviction in 1952 for ‘gross indecency’. Turing was subsequently forced to choose between imprisonment and chemical castration. He chose chemical castration. As a result of his conviction he lost security clearance and was not allowed to continue his work.

On 8 June 1954 Turing was found dead and an inquest revealed he had poisoned himself with cyanide.

[...]

Whilst it is impossible to reverse the decisions of those who treated Turing so badly all those years ago, we can at least demonstrate that Britain has changed. We now celebrate our outstanding individuals regardless of ethnicity, sexuality, or gender. "
