In the News "Peers and scientists including Professor Stephen Hawking are once again pushing for an official pardon for codebreaker Alan Turing. Turing's death from cyanide poisoning in 1954 was ruled a suicide, coming after his conviction for gross indecency at a time when homosexuality was illegal." The fact that he still hasn't been pardoned is an utter disgrace.

So basically, that term "open minded" does not mean what you want it to mean.

This really isn't the time nor place for mindless trolling, and I resent the personal accusations.

I'm not going into details of my personal life, because quite frankly, I'd rather not discuss them so openly on here. However I assure you I'm anything but closed minded nor homophobic. And if you bothered to read the point's I've raised, you'd see that I'm actually pushing for changes that will have a real effect for gay and bi, men and women, living and dead, rather than moves which are essentially just gestures to one specific individual (albeit one who I do have a great deal of respect for).

This is the problem with discussions like these, a small minority like yourself are too immature / insecure to hold an intelligent debate and thus resort to childish accusations.

On the internet "open minded" commonly seem to mean "people I agree with".
