It’s wonderful that Gay Pride Day here in New York is being celebrated the day after Alan Turing’s 100th birthday. Very life affirming.
Of course straight people can also celebrate Alan Turing. Digital computation, artificial intelligence and a world in which the Nazis were defeated are not benefits bestowed only upon gay people. Straight people get to enjoy these things as well.
It’s a good thing that we stupid straight people didn’t manage to kill Alan Turing until after he had saved the world.
