Apparently the British Prime Minister had to apologize for how Alan Turing was treated for being gay. While it's good to hear they don't approve now, the statement feels a bit blurry in the end:
For those of us born after 1945 [...] it is hard to imagine that our continent
was once the theatre of mankind’s darkest hour. It is difficult to believe [...]
people could become so consumed by hate - by anti-Semitism, by homophobia,
by xenophobia and other murderous prejudices
Dude, Turing has been convicted in 1952 in the UK
, and treated in the same homophobic ways the Nazis
did before 1945 in Germany! And same-sex marriage is still not possible in the UK
- how's that not homophobic, hm? Instead they create things like "civil partnerships"
- equality, but not really, u know. Did anyone say butt buddies
? Fuck you, guys
! Gah, this makes me angry and depressed at the same time. Grrr.
