Blesk: Epicentre: Zeman's outrageous insults of transgender people. And why hasn't the Czech Republic stood up for homosexuals?

The new Hungarian legislation has provoked a stormy reaction from the EU leadership. It bans education about sexual minorities in schools. However, the Czech Republic is one of the countries that has so far refused to join in the criticism of Hungary.
