Yeah... I was also surprised about France as well. I was under the impression they were ahead of us on this stuff.

 being gay, like witchcraft, was actually still illegal and criminally prosecuted until just a few years ago in the UK. hell, even today they refuse to even apologize for castrating and jailing one of their most brilliant minds in the 50's (Alan Turing), and that was even right after he arguably won them the farking second world war.

 yes, castration was a legal penalty for that until recently as well.

 no, the UK is not ahead in much of anything when it comes to social advancements.

He was not physically castrated.  However, they did force him to take drugs that suppressed his sex-drive and ability to get an erection.  It's an important distinction given the barbarity of physical mutilation.

Well done, subby.

I'm watching through the whole series and just hit that episode last night. In my head, I had always thought it was one of the Flashheart scenes from Blackadder.

I believe I read that they did apologize for Turing in like, the '90s or something. I may be wrong.

Gay sex has been legal in the UK (except NI, where they are all a bunch of knuckle-dragging, mouth-breathing fundie throwbacks)  since 1967. Do you count forty five years as "just a few"?

Turing was never imprisoned and he was not castrated; he chose hormone treatment intended to reduce libido as an alternative to prison. Utterly barbaric and wrong, of course, but let's get our facts straight about what actually happened to him.

Turing wasn't imprisoned, but when the allies "liberated" the concentration camps, they locked the gays straight back up again.

Well if by that you mean gay sex was decriminalised in 1967 and we had our first openly gay member of parliament 29 years ago, and that the Prime Minister apologised for Turing's treatment back in 2009, then yes, you are spot on.

They locked up everyone who had been convicted of what was seen as a real crime which, regrettably, was the case for homosexuality in those days. Before 1967 men were regularly imprisoned for having sex with other men in the UK. Only gay men, though, because whatever the hell lesbians do has never been illegal in the UK.

Seriously, though, I'm absolutely delighted that this has gone through in England & Wales. It looks pretty certain to pass in the Scottish parliament as well.
