Alan Mathison Turing , OBE , FRS ( pron.: / ˈ tj ʊər ɪ ŋ / TEWR -ing ; 23 June 1912 – 7 June 1954), was a British mathematician , logician , cryptanalyst , and computer scientist . He was highly influential in the development of computer science , giving a formalisation of the concepts of " algorithm " and " computation " with the Turing machine , which can be considered a model of a general purpose computer. [ 2 ] [ 3 ] [ 4 ] Turing is widely considered to be the father of computer science and artificial intelligence . [ 5 ] During World War II , Turing worked for the Government Code and Cypher School (GC&CS) at Bletchley Park , Britain's codebreaking centre. For a time he was head of Hut 8 , the section responsible for German naval cryptanalysis.
While one researcher concedes the findings are "politically volatile," a recent study of gay men in New York City shows the larger a man's penis is, the less likely he is to use a condom , Pink News reports. Researchers at Hunter College’s Center for HIV Educational Studies and Training (CHEST) culled responses to surveys of about 500 attendees at local community events. According to Queerty, some respondents in the survey said they had unprotected sex because they couldn't find the right condom fit , and just 40 percent said they were easily able to find condoms to suit their length and girth. While larger-sized condoms are available in stores, the one-size-fits-all variety are more readily available -- and often free from health clinics in New York City, the study found.

WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA–The mainstream acceptance of gays and lesbians, a hard-won civil-rights victory gained through decades of struggle against prejudice and discrimination, was set back at least 50 years Saturday in the wake of the annual Los Angeles Gay Pride Parade. Participants in Saturday's Los Angeles Gay Pride Parade, which helped change straight people's tolerant attitudes toward gays. "I'd always thought gays were regular people, just like you and me, and that the stereotype of homosexuals as hedonistic, sex-crazed deviants was just a destructive myth," said mother of four Hannah Jarrett, 41, mortified at the sight of 17 tanned and oiled boys cavorting in jock straps to a throbbing techno beat on a float shaped like an enormous phallus. "Boy, oh, boy, was I wrong."
In February 2012 the Open University published The Bisexuality Report : a comprehensive overview of the issues facing bisexual folks in the UK today, and the second of its kind in the world after a San Francisco group published the Bisexual Invisibility Report last year. The statistics on the health and happiness of bisexuals, in both reports, are absolutely dismal. Bisexual people have worse overall mental health, and are more likely to suffer intimate partner violence, poverty, homelessness and abuse than our heterosexual, lesbian and gay counterparts. We are more likely to be closeted, to feel suicidal, and to feel unhappy with our sexualities. We are less accepted by our families. We use more recreational drugs, drink more alcohol, and suffer from the biphobia of health providers (many of whom are positive in attitude towards lesbian and gay service users) – the combination of these factors with poor mental health suggests that physical health will also be worse for bisexuals.
“But how many of there are you, really?” Against erasure and excuses, fighting for our lives | We Exist!This rant’s from yours truly – on excuses I’m truly sick of, and the fight for your life and mine. – Cha-Cha A couple of articles ago , I linked to a report out of the UK on bisexuality . I particularly liked the following quote in the beginning, explaining some issues with methodology: “It is extremely difficult to determine the number of bisexual people due to both a lack of research and different definitions of bisexuality. If the term is defined narrowly, for example as the number of people who self-identify as ‘bisexual’ on a national UK survey, then the proportions tend to be small. If the term is defined as broadly as all people who have ever had an attraction to more than one gender then it may include a significant minority, or even a majority, of the population.
In 3 minutes and 20 seconds, Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" video accomplished more for the gay community than some gay-rights organizations have been able to do in years. "Call Me Maybe" has been the number-one song in America for two weeks and counting, with the video fast approaching 150 million views on YouTube. Jepsen's song has not only clinched the song-of-the-summer mantle but surpassed its viral-pop-video predecessors, including Rebecca Black's "Friday" (which has racked up a paltry 34 million views in comparison). While Rebecca Black's song quickly inspired scorn and ridicule, Ms. Jepsen has inspired massive radio airplay, iTunes sales, and a record deal from none other than Mr.
Image Credit: Donna Ward/Getty Images In an email to journalist Andrew Sullivan that was posted on the Daily Beast , Anderson Cooper acknowledged that he is “gay, always have been, always will be, and I couldn’t be any more happy, comfortable with myself, and proud.” The personal life of the popular CNN and CBS newsman has long been a matter of interest and speculation, but Cooper had always sidestepped the issue of his sexuality. But the culture has changed — evolved, you might say — and the recent June 29 EW cover story, below, captured that shift.
“ Bisexuality is just an excuse for horny people to have lots of sex.” “ I just don’t see how bisexuals can like both sexes equally.” “ Bisexuals are just people who can’t come to terms with being homosexual.” …..Okay, where to even start?
Pansexuality , or omnisexuality , [ 1 ] is sexual attraction , sexual desire , romantic love , or emotional attraction toward persons of all gender identities and biological sexes . [ 2 ] [ 3 ] Self-identified pansexuals may consider pansexuality a sexual orientation , [ 3 ] and refer to themselves as gender-blind , asserting that gender and sex are insignificant or irrelevant in determining whether they will be sexually attracted to others. [ 4 ] The Oxford English Dictionary defines pansexuality as, "not limited or inhibited in sexual choice with regard to gender or activity". [ 5 ] The concept of pansexuality deliberately rejects the gender binary , the "notion of two genders and indeed of specific sexual orientations", [ 3 ] as pansexual people are open to relationships with people who do not identify as strictly men or women. [ 3 ] [ 6 ] [ edit ] Etymology The prefix pan- comes from an Ancient Greek term meaning "all" or "every". Omni- comes from a Latin term meaning "all".
Note on Alexander , the movie by Oliver Stone When Oliver Stone was thinking of doing a movie on the life of the legendary son of king Phillip II of Macedon and queen Olympias, one unexpected obstacle stood in his way: the Greek government. It didn't want one of their greatest heroes 'besmirched' by public knowledge of his male loves. As a result, the film was shot mainly in Morocco and Thailand. No scenes were filmed in Greece, as the Athens News Agency explains, because of government opposition to Stone's portrayal of the Greek hero. Not surprisingly, these "erotic reality deniers" provided Mr.
PRINCETON, NJ -- The inaugural results of a new Gallup question -- posed to more than 120,000 U.S. adults thus far -- shows that 3.4% say "yes" when asked if they identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender. These results are based on responses to the question, "Do you, personally, identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender?" included in 121,290 Gallup Daily tracking interviews conducted between June 1 and Sept. 30, 2012. This is the largest single study of the distribution of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) population in the U.S. on record. By comparison, the General Social Survey , a project of NORC at the University of Chicago, asked a sexual orientation question in its 2008 and 2010 survey of about 2,000 adults in each year. The U.S.

Are you quietly stalking someone and too dense to figure out their sexual orientation from Google searches, Flickr party photos and real-life gossip? Well, a couple of MIT geniuses invented just the tool for you. The best part of Carter Jernigan and Behram Mistree's software, created for a research project, is that you don't even need to "friend" your target to figure out if he's gay. You simply need access to his friends list, which is made public by default on Facebook.
There are countless myths and stereotypes about gays and lesbians spanning everything from their mannerisms to their sex lives to the nature of their relationships. In this article, I will review five of the most common myths and evaluate them in light of what scientific research has to say. MYTH #1: Gay men sleep around a lot more than straight men. Although some politicians and anti-gay groups want you to believe that gay men are a bunch of “horny sluts,” there is good reason not to buy into this stereotype. First, although gay men typically report a higher number of partners than heterosexual men on average, we need to look at the median (or 50 th percentile) before drawing any conclusions because averages can be easily distorted by a few extreme responses (and, indeed, there is a small number of gay men who accumulate an extremely large number of partners).
