There are some matters which carry an inexplicable stigma. These include an alternative sexuality, psychiatric conditions and, in my case, epilepsy. None of these can affect anyone else.

This review is from: Homophobia: A History (Paperback)
There are some matters which carry an inexplicable stigma. These include an alternative sexuality, psychiatric conditions and, in my case, epilepsy. None of these can affect anyone else. Yet they're treated with distaste, even condemned. It's hard to account for this disapproval, which extends back millennia. It has to be said that religion, in most cases, at least plays a part, including today. Almost all have at various times brought even judicial death, including in 1940s concentration camps, or sterilisation, as with the cryptographer Alan Turing, whose work in WW2 was honoured with a memorial only decades after his work, and suicide. And this, amd much else, is examined in Fone's study, a rightly praised work.
