today I learned: gay victims of the holocaust, who wore the pink triangle, were not seen as victims by british and american troops and were often sent back to prison to serve out their term. also, sleeping beauty was raped by the prince in the original grimm fairy tales. next, alan turing, the father of computer science and artificial intelligence, committed suicide after being chemically castrated for being a homosexual. finally, the beatles literally stopped touring because their music could not be amplified enough to compete with screaming crowd noise, even with custom, purpose-built amps. incredible.
