Alan Turing was born today

He was gay and neurodivergent, famous for 'Turing machine,' a model for modern/general purpose computers

he was also chemically castrated by his government for being gay (instead of prison time), and later committed suicide at 41

Alan Turing bday, suicide mention 

@vickysteeves he was also a competitive marathon runner and made some really interesting advancements in the study of biological patternicity (see: Turing Patterns)

i was irritated with the film made about him (the imitation game) for portraying him as socially awkward to make his societal exclusion "relatable" when in reality he was quite socially capable and it was literally just due to oppression over his sexuality .-.
