LGBTQ Community has been fighting for equal rights forever.
It would be wrong of me to say that we haven’t come leaps and bound across if you compare the 1900s to now. However, you can never purge the world of close-mindedness and homophobic people.
When that person is famous, that just garners all the more attention. What famous people don’t realize is the kind of power they have over some people. That their words might hurt many and even stop some from ever realizing their true self.
It’s people like Margaret Court that LGBTQ community is still fighting against. As in the light of her new interview with Christian Vision Radio, her words were not kind to the LGBTQ community, to say the least.
“Transgender people are influenced by the devil” – Margaret Court.
She also claimed that LGBTQ rights activists are not better than Hitler. To add fuel to the fire, She alleged that the sport that she used to love is now filled with lesbians.
This interview was held right after she had boycotted Qantas Airlines, because the CEO of the company supported same-sex marriage.
Many tennis players from Australia now want the Margaret Court Arena to be renamed because of her homophobic behavior.
John McEnroe however, had another idea in mind.
“I will personally call my good friend Elton John to host the biggest same-sex mass wedding ceremony ever seen in Margaret Court Arena, Margaret, that’s the kind of guy I am.” John McEnroe says in the video while he addressed Court.
The video is named “Game, Set, and Mats”. In which John McEnroe confounded Court. To agonize her even more, he plans to celebrate gay marriage when it becomes legal in Australia with the help of John Elton.
The best thing John McEnroe has done in years.

“The way I see it, there are three options regarding this statement, number one: This is true, and who gives a fuck? Number two: This is not true, and who should give a fuck? And number three: This is half-true and should we really give a fuck?” McEnroe said in very elegant English.
Margaret Court sizzled down after that. Maybe she has learned her lesson. One can hope right.?
