wth. why not be proud.
turing substantially helped the war and was one of the key figures who defined modern computation
and they harassed the poor man until he killed himself
the fact that some small fraction of the worlds gay population can celebrate and not cower in fear
is a huge advancement. and you can fuck off.
Pride is something you feel about something you achieved not an accident of birth. Is it an accident of birth, something over which you have no control? If so then pride is entirely inappropriate, just like being proud of the colour of your eyes.
If I were proud of having brown hair wouldn't I be conceited? How about being proud of being heterosexual, proud of not being gay? Is that ok by you? No? Get over yourself.
Don't be ashamed of what you are but reserve pride for your true achievements.
