Margaret Court To Skip Australian Open, Claims Equal Marriage Will Bring About “Genderless Generation”

Q News Magazine reports:

Australian tennis champion Margaret Court has remained defiant in her opposition to marriage equality. The 24-time Grand Slam winner, who is now a pastor in Perth, told the Herald Sun that same-sex marriage was a “trend” and Australia “will pay” for its decision to legalise it in December.

“I think there will be a price to pay for it in the future in the nation and people will see it’s not about marriage,” she said. “There will be a genderless generation. My thing was a marriage is between a man and a woman.”

Margaret Court made worldwide headlines last year when she announced she would be boycotting Qantas because of the airline’s vocal support for the reform. Court followed up the pledge with comments in which she likened LGBTI activists to Nazis, suggested gender diversity was “all the devil” and that marriage equality would lead to the cancellation of Christmas.

More from Sports24:

Tennis great Margaret Court, whose views on homosexuality sparked calls for a boycott of the Australian Open stadium named after her, will not attend this year’s tournament, organisers said on Friday. The furor led to suggestions that some players would boycott the Margaret Court Arena at this month’s opening Grand Slam unless the flagship stadium at Melbourne Park was renamed.

Court, 75, poured more fuel on the fire by claiming a gay conspiracy from America was behind calls to strip her name from the arena. “As a former champion Margaret was invited to the Australian Open. We have been advised she will not be attending this year,” tournament organisers told AFP.

Court denied she was avoiding the tournament after the controversy. “I don’t run from things, I face them,” she told Melbourne’s Herald Sun newspaper on Friday. “I decided not to come across this year and do more crabbing.”

    Is that a turtleneck she’s wearing?

    • Christopher

      They’re called Tortoises, and yes. 😉

      But maybe you meant a Turtle’s neck.

      • AmeriCanadian

        LOL. A turtle’s neck would have been funnier.

    • Tawreos

      Nope, she is just a turtle that lost it’s shell.

    • TheManicMechanic

      From the Mitch McConnell spring designer line. For fall they add the turkey wattle.

  • another_steve

    The hate that consumes her soul is apparent on her face.

    • vorpal

      Her whole career was spent obsessing about fuzzy balls.
      You can’t expect her to stop now, can you?

      • AmeriCanadian

        Obsessing and smacking them as hard as she could.

      • another_steve

        No one I know who has fuzzy balls would let her touch them.

    • Rolf

      If she took off the wig and makeup she would look neither male nor female, just ugly.

      I’m guessing she is thinking of the children, not wanting them to go through the daily confusing anguish of looking in the mirror and saying “WTF is that?”

    • jeffg166

      Moral rot as it were.

    • Robincho

      But, but she’s a pastor! In Perth! (More like Pastor Prime. Wattle she do next?)…

    • KCMC

      and slip without grace down her neck.

  • Jmdintpa

    She just bitter because her transgender surgery was a complete ad utter failure and now her prosthetic face is falling off. Well sorry toots, technology wasnt what it is back before the great war.

  • Tawreos

    People get to watch tennis without a hateful judgmental bitch infesting the stadium, sounds like a win/win to me.

  • crewman

    May the community of events that bigots feel welcome at shrink ever more until they sit at home bitter and defeated, warmed only in the cold glow of 1950s re-runs.

  • misterjack

    By age 75, you get the neck you deserve.

    • TJay229


    • I am 75. My neck looks better than hers.

  • Uncle Mark

    Is it possible that her demented beliefs & appearance are actually the end-result of her tennis career…taking too many balls to the face?

    • Tawreos

      I’ve taken plenty of balls to the face and I don’t look like th…you meant tennis balls didn’t you, never mind me then =)

      • Treant

        My thoughts exactly. I turn 49 in 1 hour, 2 minutes and I don’t have wrinkles, blemishes, or skin discolorations. And balls have regularly flown at my chin.

        • zhera

          You’re ‘moisturizing’. That’s the difference.

          • Treant

            And protecting myself from the sun. Even Pennsylvania’s sun can damage.

          • Phillip in L.A.

            Olay has a great, cheap moisturizer with 30 SPF, so that’s two birds in the hand!

        • AmeriCanadian

          Just the chin? No forehead, eye or nose? You’re missing out! 😉

          Thanks for the reminder…see I DID forget. 🙁

          Happy Birthday! I presume you’ll be posting a video later with the slapping? Hmmmm??

          • Treant

            If you’d like to see somebody who’s bleeding out of his sinuses, whose right side of his face is swollen, and who’s pale as a sheet from a high fever, sure.

            Personally, I should think ghoul porn would be more of a turn on.

          • Joe in PA

            🙁 Ouch, I was all set to fire back with a snappy comeback…I’ll give you a break (this time).

            Now…about that ghoul porn….

        • jerry

          Happy Birthday! But I think taking balls to the face, and other areas, has helped keep me young.

          Happy birthday.

  • Tawreos

    Is crabbing catching crabs or is it just what she calls it when she spews her hate?

    • Stogiebear

      I initially read that as “Is crabbing catching crabs or is it just what she calls it when she paws herself.”

  • Boreal

    Please stay home from all events, Margaret, just to teach those godless heathens a lesson.

  • shellback

    Sweetie, darling, time to learn how to blend the face spackle down the neck.

  • TJay229

    She should skip being out in public with her neck looking like that… Yesh! 😖🤮

    • Treant

      Victorian collars.

    She’ll be in good company when she goes crabbing.

  • Boreal

    Turtlenecks for a turtle’s neck needed.

    “There will be a genderless generation. My thing was a marriage is between a man and a woman.”

    It’s going to be tricky walking down the street amongst all those penises and vaginas that just fell right off.

    • Tawreos

      Kids these days just don’t realize the fun that can be had when you keep the penises and the vaginas where they are.

    • zhera

      Maybe I’ll finally get myself a penis! Ooh, the fun times I’ll have…

      • safari

        Just be careful with the balls. They can stick to the thighs.

      • Tawreos

        Don’t just pick up he first penis you find in the street and have fun with it, you have no idea where it has been

        • zhera

          I’ll just take them all, and sort them out later.

          • Silver Badger

            Greedy much?

            Hungry. Starving!

          • Stogiebear

            Be picky with those peckers!

          • zhera

            It’s usually the body attached to the penis that is a problem.

          • Stogiebear

            Preach it, Sister!!!

          • Picky Peter packed a peck of plucky peckers?

        • clay

          like hypo-thermic iguanas fallen from the trees, some will be diseased.

      • Silver Badger

        Having a penis has some definite down sides. They tend to make rash decisions, overriding the main processor. They get in the way at the most unfortunate times, making their presence known when they are simply in the way. Don’t even mention zippers!

        • zhera

          Aww, poor penis owner! Let’s talk about menstruation and giving birth, shall we? 😉

          • Silver Badger

            No, lets not.

          • Todd20036

            My mom just took s lot of drugs and was completely out of it

            Which might explain a few things about me

          • GayOldLady

            How old are you? I’m surprised your mom was out of it because the reason they don’t give women pain medications during labor is it stops the labor or decreases the intensity of contractions. Now that there’s the epidural a lot of women opt for that. In my day it was basically natural childbirth. Sometimes they’d use anesthesia/gas or a med that induced amnesia at the actual birth if they feared complication or birth defect issues. Otherwise it was straight up screaming and wailing during the end stages of labor. My mom said she heard me from the waiting room.

          • Steve Smith

            back when I was born, it was normal for women to give birth at home. My 3 brothers and I were all home births. No pain meds, no doctors. And I was 2 weeks late and weighed in at 11 pounds……….poor mum…….

          • GayOldLady

            Poor mum, indeed!

          • Todd20036

            I turn 50 this April. I was born in 1968

          • GayOldLady

            Darlin, your mom wasn’t knocked out if you were born in 1968 unless you were a c-section, so remember to thank her. How is she doing? I remember she was living near where the hurricane landed last year.

          • Todd20036

            I was born ass backwards with the cord around my neck and ashen grey in color.

            That’s all I know.

          • GayOldLady

            They likely were giving her what was called “ether” in those days. I don’t know the clinical name of it, but it was gas given via mask. It made me sick as a dog, but a lot of people tolerate it well. You’re lucky to have survived delivery being both breech and tangled in the umbilical cord. My youngest daughter was born face down and they weren’t able to find a heartbeat on her throughout labor, so at the last push during delivery they knocked me out with ether so that I wouldn’t be conscious if it turned out to be the worse case scenario.

          • olandp

            My mother, although gentile, had the Jewish delivery. They knock you out with the first pain, then wake you when the hairdresser arrives. Of course, I’m the hairdresser…

          • GayOldLady


          • zhera

            Seems like a wise choice to me. I’ll never give birth, thank Thor!

          • HeyYouKidsGetOffMyLawn

            We had the same mom??

          • GayOldLady

            It’s something I’d rather forget.

          • jeffg166

            Plus you have to sit down to pee.

          • GayOldLady

            That can be rather inconvenient, especially if you’re some place where there is no restroom. I was an outdoors person when I was young and I was fond of leaning back against a tree. I perfected that technique in fact. I called it the Leaning Tree Pee.

            I wish I could edit. There is a very short scene in “Victor/ Victoria” in which Victoria is not yet convinced she can be Victor, even though she and Toddy are going to see Andre Casals.
            Vic: “There are some things men do that women can’t.”
            Tod: “Like what?”
            Vic: “Ummm. Like peeing standing up.”
            Tod: “But there’s nothing that says you can’t pee sitting down.”
            Vic: “Men have Adam’s apples.”
            Tod: (wrapping his scarf around Vic’s neck) “So do some women.”
            Vic: “Like who?”
            Tod. “Na-Na La Nuu.” …
            Vic: “She had an Adam’s apple?”
            Tod: “Like a coconut!”

          • dagobarbz, fine Italian shoes

            We don’t have to. I wouldn’t sit in a porta-potty. I will pee standing up. I can do that without getting my shoes damp.

          • yes b’y

            Cause you wouldn’t want to get those fine Italian shoes damp.

          • dagobarbz, fine Italian shoes

            I most certainly would NOT!

      Her heterosexual institution of marriage is a resounding failure. Divorce rates sky-high all over the world.

      Only the most gifted, sensitive and compassionate heterosexuals have successful marriages.

      • AJayne

        And many heterosexuals with successful marriages support our right to do the same. It’s mostly the ones who can’t seem to succeed at it who want to stop us from even trying…

        • another_steve

          That’s an excellent point, AJayne. If you’re secure in your personal relationship, you don’t give a shit about the relationships of other adults.

          But if you need to keep “confirming” the goodness/validity of your relationship, you do give a shit.

      • SkokieGuy [ChicagoAdjacentGuy]

        Half of all children born to hetero parents were unplanned. Same sex couples? Zero.

        • David Walker

          However, some of those unplanned (and planned for) kids are LGBTQ. We need to find a way to thank them for that without encouraging them for more. The percentages aren’t on our side.

          • another_steve

            Lol. The old joke:

            We need breeding heterosexuals in the world because without them there would be many many fewer queer people in the world.

          • SkokieGuy [ChicagoAdjacentGuy]

            You make a good point. In vitro and surrogates are an option that is limited by economics.

          • Denise Geddes-mcclure

            Sorry, I got a bit lost with the last three points(Clay, David W, Skokie) can you explain please?

          • SkokieGuy [ChicagoAdjacentGuy]

            I believe Clay is saying that because of societies pressure to conform and youth forced in the closet, (and probably adding in Republican led elimination of comprehensive sex ed) that a high percentage of teen births are to LGBT parents.

            and I believe David is saying the heterosexual’s unplanned pregnancies is one of the ways that LGBT couples raise families by adopting the unplanned and unwanted children.

            I was agreeing with David that adoption is important, because some pregnancy options like surrogacy may be economically out of reach of many LGBT couples.

        • clay

          Actually, a disproportionate number of teen pregnancies are from gay fathers and lesbian mothers. I blame this on homo-phobia and on strict gender ideals, like Margaret Court’s. Her drive to gender ideal conformity damages the future generations, as well.

      The Perthian pastor said, “…marriage equality would lead to the cancellation of Christmas.” Not this year, hon, because the vote didn’t give us enough lead time. But we’ll see what we can do in 12/18, K?
      The pastor from Perth really thinks that the biggest money-maker of the year will be done away with? And that we can do that? Thanks for the vote of confidence, but you obviously have never been an LGBTQ household at that time of year. Cancel xmas? We have more important things to do, like sending cyclones you way and setting off earthquakes where they’ve never been before.

      When she uses that expression, she’s referring to women who refuse to behave in stereotypical woman-ways and men who refuse to behave in stereotypical man-ways.

      I’m okay with that sort of genderless society.

      I’m pretty genderless myself.

      • JAKvirginia

        How one acts has nothing to do with gender. C’mon, you know that, right?

        • Todd20036

          He does, He’s just explaining the haters’ definition of genderless.

          Sort of the Archie Bunker song: “Men were men…”

          Men are no longer always masculine, and women are no longer always feminine.

          I think some Narnia queer claimed to be able to make a gay man, masculine and straight.

          Wrote a book on it, too.

          The subject of the book committed suicide. Funny that.

          • JAKvirginia

            Oh, OK. Just another meaningless term meant to be divisive and mean-spirited. How Christian of them. (BTW: I luvs another_steve.)

        • another_steve

          For some, yes. For others, no.

          Men, for example, who don’t let themselves cry think it an “unmanly” thing to do, so they refrain. When Caitlyn Jenner completed her transition, she posed on that magazine cover as a stereotypical big-bosomed Hollywood sexpot. Her idea, apparently, of what “woman” means.

          And the list goes on and on.

      Saturday proved he was still on his feet, alas, so it doesn’t seem that he’s too sick. I’m not sure what’s going on.

      I hate to say it, but the basic statement about the African-American unemployment rate is correct, and this may also indicate someone other than Trump is doing the tweeting. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. the seasonally adjusted UR for this group fell to 6.8% in December, the lowest rate since 1972, when BLS began reporting the UR by race. The monthly average for 2017 was 7.5%, just below the 7.6% average for 2000.

      The December URs for whites, Hispanics, and Asians — 3.7%, 4.8%, and 2,5%, respectively — are also near record lows. I am not suggesting that things are great in the labor markets, or in the economy. The UR is not the only measure of the economy. But based on the current strength of the labor market, we should be cautious about predicting the Democrats will sweep next November’s elections.

      Someone with the full-on Twitter should be able to see if this was sent from an Android device. Turmp uses Android, the ‘help’ does not.

      Seems to me to be more prompted by Fox News talking points– Toad Starnes was blabbing about this before the Golden Globes even started.

        What is full on Twitter?

          People who are actually on Twitter, like registered, and can run searches.

  • TexasBoy

    Oh, Margaret, your God would be a lot more believable if He would just feed the million children that starve to death annually, cure some of our deadliest diseases, speak for himself rather than through a 2000 yo book of fables, and prevent innocents from being murdered, He’s omnipotent right? He can do all these things with a simple thought or wave of his hand.

  • Achilles Tsakiridis

    Magaret — so looking forward to a genderless generation and incidentally , you not being around to witness it due to the greatest equalizer of them all for old ladies ….

    the hate oozes from around her neck. Look at it, all those brown hate spots oozing out. She full of it and its eating her face off.

  • madknits

    Her “thing” probably had teeth, a forked tongue, and breathed fire, and terrified her husband.

  • Robert Adams

    Gee, Margaret, you have a lot of nerve, seeing as how you are a miserable failure when it comes to upholding your end of the gender thing. Should you not have remained barefoot, pregnant, and in the kitchen?

  • Blake Mason

    Serena Williams lost her first match since having her baby. I look forward to the day she snatches the title of most grand slams away from this wench.

  • Jerry Hinnant

    Do more crabbing? LMAO If she only knew how true that really is!

  • Silver Badger

    Ms. Court forgets that most of us are perfectly happy with our gender. As we are proving, gender has little to do with love and marriage.

  • kareemachan

    You could look at it as “genderless” not being a bad thing. No more sexism, misogyny, misandry…..

    • Silver Badger

      People, being people will just find other reasons to hate.

  • FAEN

    I’ve asked The Australian Open why they still have her name on the Arena and why they haven’t removed it.

    Of course I’ve heard nothing back.

      Conservatism shows up in the neck waddle.

  • The_Wretched

    If ‘gender’ needs to be taught and reinforced, maybe it’s not worth the cultural effort? I file this one under ‘weird obsession’. There’s many other factors I judge people on that come first – like how do they treat others and how honest are they.

    • Yeah, we as a species have survived and thrived through 100,000+ years of every kind of environmental and social change, but marriage equality is what’s gonna sink us.

    Is the marriage issue really her “thing”? Is she otherwise supportive of LGBT rights or even their existence?

    • David Walker

      I doubt that she finds any good in us at all. I’m OK with that.

    • clay

      Any one who claims that marriage is necessary (and limited to) the only way two opposite sexes can relate with other is highly invested in their own culture’s sexism.

  • JT

    Margaret Court looks and sounds as if the only relief she’ll ever get is from the handle of a tennis racket.

    “Genderless”? Like Barbie and Ken. Just smooth, plastic mounds. Well, I guess clothes will fit better.

      Her true complaint is the loss of sexism.

  • I am not sure but the way she is raving about the “consequences” seems to me to indicate that she must be seriously delusional in her dotage.

    And She does seem to be rather crabby.

    So recognizing same sex marriage in Australia is “a trend.” Like interracial marriage, allowing women the right to vote, civil rights for indigenous Australians, banning discrimination against the disabled…. You know, just a trend.

    She’s the biggest closeted homophobe there is. Where’s the VHS tape of her eating pussy? It’s out there.

  • -M-

    Marriage between two women, two men, or one of each, doesn’t affect gender at all. Legal marriage is just no longer restricted to opposite gender couples.

    Reich-wingers like Court also need to be taught the difference between people doing or saying things they don’t approve of and Nazis (such as themselves) or other fascists etc violating people’s rights to make their own decisions about private matters like religion, marriage, and so on.

  • Lindoro Almaviva

    will you be playing, bitch? That’s what I thought, your absence on that court will not prevent any of the players from playing, nor the tournament from being played.

        No, be fair. She is old. “Old” comes to us all, if we are lucky. My disapproval of her has nothing to do with her appearance. But tennis is her field of expertise, and socio-political analysis and commentary is not.

  • JCF

    Any human having sex w/ La Court would be a heterospeciesist!

    She is entitled to her opinions. But proficiency in one field does not give a person any kind of moral authority or expertise in another – I say that as a resident of a country that regularly elects people who should have stuck to their first job. 🙁
