UPDATE: Famous transgender woman Cate McGregor has publically slammed Margaret Court, following Court's outrageous attack against transgenders and gay couples.
What started as a letter vowing to boycott Qantas over their pro-gay marriage campaign, quickly turned into calling transgenders the work of the "devil" and saying they're the result of bad parenting or a traumatic childhood.
Last night, Cate - an active member of the LGBTQ community and known sportswriter - appeared on ABC's The Drum, delivering a moving speech that seems to be exactly what the country needed.
"I think [Margaret Court] has absolutely overstepped any support from theology or religion in some of her discursive remarks about the families of transgender kids, which are just nonsense," Cate said.
"To go on about the parents of trans kids failing or neglecting their children and that transgenderism is some kind of parental failure."
"I know a lot of families with young kids grappling with gender issues. They are loving families, there is a mother and father present, the kids are loved to bits."
"I don’t hear her lecturing people on their second marriages as adultery, but we’re the low-hanging fruit, you can kick us to death to the applause of the mainstream media and ramp up solicitations for money," she said.
"No-one wants to be transgender, we don't choose it, we are born like it."
ORIGINAL: Margaret Court appeared on The Project last Friday night where she defended saying she will stop flying Qantas Airlines "where possible" after the airline's promotion of same-sex marriage came out.
"I believe in marriage as a union between a man and a woman as stated in the Bible," Ms Court wrote in the original letter published in The West Australian.
"Your Qantas statement leaves me no option but to use other airlines where possible for my extensive travelling."
The letter also talked about tennis player Casey Dellacqua - who has two children with her same-sex partner Amanda Judd - saying that children born into female same-sex couples will always have questions surrounding their "identity and background."
Dellacqua responded by posting a photo of the article to Twitter, writing, "Margaret. Enough is enough."
Sam Stosur then hinted that tennis stars may even choose to avoid Margaret Court Arena during next year's Australian Open due to Margaret's open stance against gay marriage.
And just when you thought things were dying down, Court has publically slammed lesbians again, this time adding transgender people into the mix too.
"We’re there to help them overcome. We’re not against the people. They’re human beings and 92 percent – they say in America – have either been abused in some form sexually or emotionally at an early age for them to even be this way," she said.
Side note: that statistic is completely made up.
And transgenders? Apparently, they're the work of the devil.
"That’s all the Devil [...] but that’s what Hitler did and that’s what communism did: got the mind of the children. There’s a whole plot in our nation, and in the nations of the world to get the minds of the children."
Court then went on to say that tennis is full of partying lesbians, who lead young players into "parties and things."
"I mean, tennis is full of lesbians, because even when I was playing there was only a couple there. But those couple that led took young ones into parties and things."
