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.

Whoa… : SHARE if you've used a computer. Alan Turing's logic engines were the precursor of modern computers we use today. His essays outlined how a computer would work. In 1954, homosexuality was illegal. Turing was given a choice between imprisonment or to undergo hormonal treatment. He committed suicide.
