Women are ‘smaller, weaker, less intelligent’ & should be paid less – Polish MEP

Since women are “smaller, weaker and less intelligent” than men they rightfully should earn less, a controversial Polish member of the European Parliament has claimed during a debate on gender pay gap, sparking an immediate and fierce backlash.

To support his argument, Janusz Korwin-Mikke, a right-wing politician who represents the remote region of Silesia, claimed that there are no women among the world’s top chess players. Women according to him are also much weaker when it comes to physics.

“Of course women must earn less than men because they are weaker, they are smaller and they are less intelligent, they must earn less, that‘s all,” stated the 74-year-old MEP.

    Perhaps in his wisdom he has forgotten that without a mother he wouldn't be here to offer such patronising platitudes.  Without a wife he wouldn't have children to carry on his name. If his children didn't have a mother to nurture and guide them while he forged his career as an MEP he may not have achieved the success he aspired to, or be given the opportunity to pose for photographs with arm raised in a formidable "Seig Heil"  Hitler would have been proud of.

    He is lacking some wisdom Rosie, hence his idiotic remarks

    "...claimed that there are no women among the world’s top chess players..."

    What about that Iranian girl who played chess at a high level? I suppose if he's referring to the top 100, there probably wouldn't be many women there because sport itself is essentially an expression of aggression, and women are generally not wired to be aggressive, at least in the way men are. I bet she could beat him, though.

    By the way, hopefully it sinks to all who watch that live political feed or however they broadcast that, that millions of people are paying lots of money so that these individuals can sit comfortably in a mostly empty room and argue with each other over stupid things, such as what's displayed above - and at enormous salary.

    I'd always considered chess to be analytical or tactical, now I realise it's aggressive I've decided to call it a knight.
