His name was Alan Turing. Most people still don’t know who he was. That must change. Turing was a prodigiously gifted British mathematician, logician, cryptanalyst, and computer scientist. In fact, Turing is considered the father of computer science and artificial intelligence. He designed the programming of the world’s first commercial computer. He was also the inventor of the Turing Machine in 1935, a device which even to this day all digital computers are modeled on. Crucially, he was central to the building of The Bombe, an electro-mechanical machine which greatly helped in the breaking of the Enigma code used by the Nazi’s during World War Two. By 1942 his team was decoding up to 39,000 Enigma messages a month. This rose to 84,000, or about two messages decoded every minute.
Winston Churchill said that Turing’s work shortened the Second World War by at least two years, saving millions of lives. Turing also helped decode the Fish cipher used by the German High Command to transmit messages between Hitler and senior officers in the field. So Turing was an architect, many would say the architect, of the modern world - and he was living in it decades before the rest of us.
Alan Turing was homosexual. He was quite fearlessly homosexual in an era when it was still a crime. When it became known he lost his security clearance. In 1952 he was convicted of acts of ‘gross indecency.’ They gave him a choice between prison or a process they called 'chemical castration.’ The barbaric and pointless process of being injected with female hormones - it gave him female breasts, it rendered him impotent - proved so traumatic it eventually led to his suicide in 1954. He was 41.
Во-первых, это очень большой шаг для человечества, и это
шаг, определенно, вперед. А, во-вторых, русская общественность так не считает. И
я в полном замешательстве. Даже нет, не так. Мне стыдно за то, что русская
общественность ведет себя, как скоты средневековые, когда огромная часть
человечества делает шаг к более светлому и гуманному обществу.
Эй, гомофоб, ненавидишь Гитлера? Так вот, он презирал и сжигал
евреев только по национальному признаку точно так же, как ты презираешь и
пишешь свои странные пасквили против геев и лесбиянок просто потому, что они
родились не такими, как ты.
Да уж лучше, блять, исчезнуть как с вид с этой планеты из-за
банальной человечности, чем штамповать своей пиздой идиотов, которые будут
портить и отравлять жизнь другим десятилетиями, просто потому что ты воспитала
их, основываясь на своих предрассудках, дура.
Многие спрашивают меня, почему я в своих выступлениях, видео
и стэндапах резко негативно выступаю против религии. Да вот поэтому. Потому что
люди, чье мироощущение ограничено десятью правилами и двумя книжками, в которых
куча логических дыр, устаревших взглядов и тупо противоречий, начинают очень
воинственно менять жизнь окружающим.
И можете хоть обосраться в комментариях, обзывая меня,
блять, геем… плевать. Мне просто хочется
верить, что не настолько все плохо в нашей стране. Хочется верить…
Hey, guys, I
just wanted to show you a russian youtuber talking about legalization of
same-sex marriage in usa so you would know that not everyone in Russia is
intolerant and homophobic as we are said to be and there are a lot of people
who support equal rights. Don’t listen to stereotypes and have a nice day
I was watching the Stonewall Uprising documentary and the name Marsha P. Johnson was not mentioned once considering she was a leader of the 1969 Stonewall Riots. So I felt like posting these Polaroids of her taken by Andy Warhol to show remembrance of her as the significant trailblazer that she was in making the Stonewall Riots happen. It’ll be 46 years since the riots on June the 28th and 45 years since the first gay pride march took place in New York City as a result of the Stonewall Riots. Thank you Marsha. RIP.
The Two Spirited People: Remember that hatred of Gay and Bisexual people was taught to you. Native American people of North and South America allowed marriage of men to women, men to men, and women to women under the spiritual understandings that the soul is genderless or that we two spirited souls with genders separate from our biological bodies. When people say that Native Americans were the past I can only laugh because I know that our people were and continue to be the future, we understood the evils of wealth, homophobia and harming the earth until we were sieged by European barbarians. These backwards men still bicker about gay marriage, saving the ozone, and pride their capitalist system as the best in the world while it runs on the blood of black and brown people. But I digress, as this post pertains to homosexuality, male-centric culture was brought to our lands and with it the ideas of who should marry who, which sex belongs in the kitchen, and what else is proper living. In 20 years when the United States finally comes to the wisdom our people have known for centuries you may pride yourself on knowing that your ancestors knew better.
“Mick could be gay, without scaring straight people. And the reason he could be gay without scaring straight people is because he was so sexualized.. He covered more of the prism than your average person. So he would naturally incorporate elements of this into his artistry and sound convincing doing it.”
my brother is really homophobic and he tried to insult me by saying “at least i’m not gonna marry a girl!” and i started laughing and he got the most mortified look on his face because he tried so hard to insult my sexuality but he actually just made himself sound gay boom i win
