Alan Turing gets his royal pardon for 'gross indecency' – 61 years after he poisoned himself
"He was the father of modern computing whose work on the Enigma code at Bletchley Park is said to have shortened the Second World War.
But he was also gay and in those less enlightened times was chemically castrated by an ungrateful nation after being convicted of “gross indecency” with a man in 1952."

Alan Turing was a hero and an extraordinary academic - his work helped win World War II. I'm delighted he has received a Royal Pardon.*****

@OSCP2 Ian Watkins put his penis in a baby's mouth. That is rape (vaginal, oral or anal penetration). Now fuck off, you evil paedo cunt.

Government to Set Up Institute in Honour of Convicted Child Abuser Alan Turing
"He had illegal sex with a 19 year old labourer when he was a 42 year old professor of mathematics.
The age of majority at the time was 21 - so the 19 year old was legally a child and seen as a victim."
