Alan Turing, a father of computer science and WWII code-breaker was prosecuted by the British government for being gay. Then chemically castrated. Sign this petition if you think this is fucked up and want them to apologize.
Turing committed suicide two years after his prosecution in 1954. He is most well known for his Nazi enigma code breaking work for the British during the second World War and his helping establish a test to measure the intelligence of a machine which is now known as a Turing Test.
