Take THAT, Lech Walesa

This week former Polish president and Nobel Peace Prize winner Lech Walesa declared that gay rights are ridiculous and that LGBT lawmakers should be forced to sit in the back of Parliament.  Here's a great result of Walesa's assholery.
Poland's first gay and transgender lawmakers will sit on the front bench in Parliament this week in reaction to hostile remarks by former president Lech Walesa. Janusz Palikot, the leader of progressive party Palikot's Movement, reacted by promoting the party's gay lawmaker, Robert Biedron, and transgender lawmaker, Anna Grodzka, to the front row for a three-day session starting Wednesday. In Poland's Parliament, the front row, which is closest to the Speaker and gets the most TV attention, is generally for party leaders and senior lawmakers. The Cabinet sits in a separate section.
Walesa's own son, who sits in the European Parliament, has denounced his father's words. The elder Walesa has refused to apologize.
