Tragic but true - Alan Turing is widely considered to be the father of computer science. In WW II he decrypted German encoded messages. Winston Churchill said that Turing made the single biggest contribution to Allied victory in the war against Nazi Germany. After the war he was tried in court for being gay, found guilty, forced to take castration pills, and then driven to suicide. Britain has apologized. ~Via Pat Whitten

Famed mathematician Alan Turing is the inventor of the technology that allowed computers to be possible, and is considered the creator of computers because of this. Every computer in existence has used his models and tech to exist. Unfortunately, he lived in a time where being homosexual was illegal and after a conviction against him for having relations with another man, he was subjected to horrendous conversion therapy and later committed suicide.
