[From "@TaliaRinger - all uranists deep down know they only have two ways out"]
Alan Turing was really good at math, and really really really really bad at being a mentally stable heterosexual
As a result of the former, we celebrate him. As a result of the latter, we pity him. As a smart guy, Turing understood that his faggy urges were evil, and that there was something horribly wrong with him as a result. His brain was broken, and he needed to be cured
When mathematician John Nash, who's also really good at math but has a minor problem with his brain being severely broken[…]Everybody acknowledges these things when it comes to John Nash
He wasn't particularly good at changing back, but that's hardly an argument in favour of remaining in his evil sodomitic state. What was that Kennedy line about doing these things not because they are easy but because they challenge us?
Turing, sadly, wasn't up to the challenge. Like so many faggots who understand on some level (Turing understood on more than most, hence the attempts at therapy) that they are broken and wrong and should be better, he had to deal with suicidal tendencies. Ass piracy is a mental illness, and mentally ill people are often suicidal. We can all pretend to be surprised by this, or put the blame on morally superior people in the British Government.
Or we can work to find new and improved ways to fix the pillow biters and put them back on the path to the only valid sexual orientation
