 Margaret Coulter bombarded the Australian Open: they discriminated against me, and I was heartbroken


The 77 year old tennis star refers to a memorial ceremony held by the Australian Tennis Association on January 27 at the Margaret court named after her - it was half a century ago, in 1970, when she set the first record of full slam of the year in the womens open. But in this memorial ceremony, as the protagonist, she was not arranged to speak.

All this is not due to the achievement of Kotter can not deserve such a grand celebration, but from her retirement after a series of controversial remarks. As a Christian pastor, coulter has made some radical comments such as tennis is full of lesbians, transgender children are the product of evil. Not only that, she has also announced a boycott on the grounds that Qantas supports same-sex marriage.

With the equal rights movement of homosexuality getting more and more popular among the people, Kotter naturally fell into the criticism of the outside world. In order to avoid the embarrassment that may arise during the memorial ceremony, the Australian Network Association naturally made clear its position early: we recognize what she did in 1970, but we will not celebrate this person.

They accused me and tried to discriminate against everything Ive done. Im very sad about that, he said

In fact, on the second day of the memorial ceremony, tennis stars John McEnroe (61 years old, United States) and Martina Navratilova (64 years old, Czech Republic) demonstrated at the Margaret court, calling for changing the name of the court. In the middle of the court, two men and women . No matter what I think of one person, I never go to another country and say, Hey, you should take their names off a building, a court or a tennis center, he said of the equally controversial practice Ill never do that, after all, I think its very, very wrong.
