Czech president Milos Zeman calls transgender people 'disgusting'
People often asked why Pride is still a necessity, that the LGBTQ+ community is shoving it in people's faces, that no one really cares about your gender or sexuality.
But the world around us would say otherwise. Czech President Milos Zeman, who looks exactly like you would imagine a transphobe looks like, has hit out against trans people and the wider queer community.
As Czech Republic storm to a brilliant win over Netherlands in the Euros, their country's leader President Zeman brands transgender people 'disgusting'. Thus confirming he himself is disgusting. https://t.co/EzoIacrmep pic.twitter.com/xAkNQECEVD

It seems strange to refer to the condemnation of human rights violations as 'criticism', but Hungary was heavily criticised last week on their new legislation, which would prevent LGBTQ+ content from being taught in schools and also shown on and media aimed towards kids. EU members quickly criticised the legislation and Hungary's premier Viktor Orban.
Naturally, people with these kinds of views have to stick together, so Mr Zeman has shown support for Orban by claiming other nations are attempting to meddle in internal affairs.
Various sources say Hungary‘s Prime Minister Viktor Orban won‘t attend tonight’s Germany-Hungary game. Orban would have faced a sea of rainbow flags. Around 11,000 to be distributed among 🇩🇪 fans although UEFA denied permission for the stadium to be lit up in rainbow colours.

"Viktor Orban says that he is not against homosexuals, but that he is against the manipulation not only of parents, but also of children in sex education," he said.
"I see no reason to disagree with him, because I am completely annoyed by the suffragettes, the Me Too movement and Prague Pride."
It seems rather confusing that Zeman is annoyed by women who were alive over a hundred years ago.
"If you undergo a sex-change operation, you are basically committing a crime of self-harm.
