  3. Dear Sweden;

    Last night I cried when 13% of your population saw it more fit to vote for a homophobic, racist political party, instead of a feminist party fighting for equal rights for everyone, regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, age, ability or religion.

    Today, I woke up in a country where I cannot feel safe. Where 13% believe that I should not be allowed to get married or have children, because I do not wish to do this with a man. A country where 13% believe that men are superior to women. A country where 13% believe that some of my closest friends should move to countries plagued by war, famine, misery & violence, because of the colour of their skin, or their parents’.

    Today I woke up in a country where 13% of the population wish to build a society based on hate and fear, instead of peace, love and understanding.

    Please know this Sweden: we will not give up. We will continue to fight for equal rights for everyone. We will fight for you.

In addition to essentially inventing the computer, Alan Turing also broke the German Enigma Code during World War II which paved the way for the D-Day invasion. The man was a hyper-genius. I’ve read descriptions of his work by mathematical physicist Sir Roger Penrose. He’s been a hero of mine ever since.
The level of thought required to come up with the stuff he came up with is totally beyond my comprehension. I actually did not even know about his orientation until much later. He was prosecuted and ordered to undergo chemical castration. Soon thereafter, he committed suicide by eating a cyanide-laced apple.

The government forced him to take estrogen as a punishment (or “cure”?). He began to develop breasts and other side effects.
He committed suicide by biting into a cyanide laced apple. This is supposedly the inspiration for the name/logo of Apple computers.

Reblogging again because more people need to know about Turing dammit.

Whoa…

Hey guys! I have something I really want to share with you, and I hope you will be willing to help out.. A close friend of my mom’s recently told her a story about this boy she met named Nic. Nic is a 19 year old boy who broke his neck in a bad snowboarding accident and was diagnosed as a quadriplegic by his doctors. He was told he was lucky to be alive.
My mom’s friend Tanya met him outside of Maple Leaf gardens, where he was begging for money. His service dog, Shadow, had a broken foot and needed immediate veterinary attention. Vet bills are expensive, and his mom had already exceeded her resources to pay for his physical therapy.
After talking for a bit, Tanya had offered to pay for Shadow’s vet bill, if Nic agreed to get off the streets. That’s when he explained his financial situation in terms of his therapy. The government only funded a limited therapy plan for two years, now he has no government support to keep healing. He’s made extraordinary progress, and he has shocked his doctors! But the therapy is expensive, and he can’t afford to keep doing it.
So Tanya wanted to do something to help Nic, and when I heard the story I wanted to get involved as much as I could.
To raise money for Nic, Tanya, despite her arthritis, and despite recovering from a broken elbow last year, is going to rollerblade 50km. She’s hoping to raise enough money for him to continue his therapy and continue to heal. She doesn’t have the means to get the attention she needs to do this though, so I offered to use my blog to try and help.
Believe me, I know that money is tight for a lot of people (I am one of those people), and I know that there are a lot of issues and causes that also want your funds and attention. Clicking reblog only takes a moment, and you would be massively helping a really really awesome boy!
This is the link to Tanya’s fundraising page for Nic.
This is a short documentary about Nic and about his life after the accident, and about all the progress he’s made!
Please reblog if you have a moment!
