Some reactions to yesterday's women protests in Poland:
1. Our Minister of Foreign Affairs continued being nasty, calling the protests "marginal" (even thought there were ten of thousands women protesting), as well as a "joke". Having heard that, even the Prime Minister decided to have a disciplinary talk to him... or so she claims.
2. As I mentioned earlier, the Polish Catholic Church condemned the protests. One of our archbishops, when in interviewed in TV, said that the women who took part in the protest were "afraid of life". He also said he wanted to tell them that "life is beautiful". When asked about pregnancies caused by rapes, he said that "there aren't that many of such cases", because (apparently) the rape-related stress makes it difficult for women to conceive. *headdesk*
3. One of our better-known Catholic publicists, in the course of the TV show he runs in the state TV, criticised one well-known female TV personality who supported the protests. "Criticised" isn't really a good word here - he actually compared her looks to that of a cow or a pig (because the woman is question is obese).
