Re: Margaret Court demands that she be honoured at AO 2020 for CYGS

According to the quotes I don't think she is demanding anything. She is simply saying if they want me to show up for a ceremony or some sorts they need to invite me. Basically telling them don't ask someone to make or tell her to come.

I agree that her tennis career does not go into trash can because of what she believes or what she says that is non related to tennis. They are separate things.

If Australian Open decides not to celebrate her 50 years then so be it. That is the committee's choice.

So what happens when a friend or partner holds a different opinion against your favorite?

They should absolutely honor the 50th anniversary of her achievement. They did it for the male player so do it for the female player.

The male player is not an asshole though, so there's that. Except you're trying to suggest sexism is the reason she might not get the same recognition.

Her slam count will always have an asterisk next to it and she's an awful bitter person. Even if I wasn't gay I would not want her anywhere near the tennis world, if they do honor her everything should be covered in rainbows.

Margaret Court is that embarrassing great auntie that you have to invite over for Christmas, but keep away from any non-family members for fear of her saying something awful and ridiculous. I'm sure if she wasn't so problematic Tennis Australia would be bending over backwards to celebrate her achievements, but she has said what she has said and refuses to apologise/see why it's harmful, so I don't think this kind of recognition is deserving, no matter what you achieved.

She's a legend of the sport. She's being discriminated against.

She is the record holder and will probably remain it. So give her some credit as an athlete.

Yeah, people who discriminate against others don't have much of a moral ground to complain about being discriminated against.
