More bad news from Poland

As you may know, things have been getting worse for queer people in Poland over the past few years, with Stonewall-style raids on gay clubs in Warsaw, and discriminatory legislation like this on the rise:

Teachers who promote gay equality in schools risk losing their jobs under draft regulations currently being drawn up by Poland's Ministry of Education, Polish Radio reports.
The government has taken an intense right-wing turn lately. The country is being run by two vaguely fascist former child-actor identical twin brothers. No, I am not making this up. The sponsor of the new antigay legislation, Roman Giertych, is the son of deputy Maciej Giertych, who apparently may or may not be a Nazi.
