Just a week after the computers of Number 10 Downing St were searched for child porn, the British government has announced that convicted paedophile Alan Turing is to have an institute set up in his sacred name :
Here are some facts about Alan Turing, his conviction, and the law that he was convicted under, that rarely get mentioned in the liberal media :
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.
Turing tried to have the boy arrested for a burglary that he did not commit. In fact, Turing had sex with the boy one last time (after giving him alcohol) before going to the police station with the glass that he had drunk from, in order to see if the fingerprints matched those found at the burglary scene.
It is possible that Turing tried to frame the boy knowing he had nothing to do with the 'burglary' because he feared the boy was about to go to the police and reveal that Turing was 'abusing' him.
We do not know if Turing had sex with any other teenage boys and how old they were. We only know of this boy because of the 'burglary'.
Turing was not 'castrated'. He did not spend a day in prison. He was required to go through a mild hormonal treatment programme to curb his sexual desires for teenage boys. He embarked upon a fitness regime after his trial and appeared happier and healthier than ever.
He was allowed to resume his teaching career at the (then) prestigious University of Manchester. Compare his outcome with those of homosexuals today convicted of having sex with underage boys (sex offenders register, exclusion orders, banned from teaching etc).
He likely did not commit suicide - his own biographer believes he died as a result of accidentally inhaling cyanide fumes (he had been experimenting with cyanide the day he died). His parents and friends were shocked, and refused to believe it was suicide because of how happy and content he appeared to be.
Turing was convicted as a result of the same puritanical 1885 criminal amendment act that raised the age of consent for heterosexuals from 12 to 16 and which is currently being used to persecute heterosexual men for having sex with teenage girls nearly half-a-century ago, even as we turn Alan Turing into a martyr for having illegal sex with a teenage lad considered a victim of child abuse at the time.
