Polish President Lech Kaczynski apparently tries really hard to become respected by his peers. And since politics often is such a nonsensical game he probably figured that it will be best to do what he thinks politicians do when in Rome (incidentally that joke is not so funny these days) – make no sense.
Interestingly, today’s Welt am Sonntag has an interview hopefully ironically titled “I am realist (in German)” in which Mr Kaczynski repeates his understanding of the nature of human sexuality, which he already explained during a speech at Berlin’s Humboldt University, where he was interrupted by a group of gay rights activits protesting some limitations of gay rights in Poland.
Following the incident he stated, and he apparently doesn’t mind to repeat that in print, that gays are in some sense dangerous because they are promoting their lifestyle as an alternative for the majority (sic!).
“Imagine a world in which 50% of men were no longer interested in women, that would be a different world, and that would be dangerous from a biological point of view as well as from a cultural one” (my translation)
I believe he did not really think this argument through. Imagine the benefits – in such a situaion there would be roughly two women for each of the rest of us. Statistically only, true, but still. Thus, as there will not be too many heterosexual men arguing against having more choice among women, President Kaczynski’s overly transparent display of short-sightedness might very well raise some eyebrows in his staunchly conservative constituency…
