Australian media pundits are in a state of shock today, after comments made by a highly religious woman who was born in rural NSW nearly 80 years ago.
Margaret Court has doubled down on her controversial opinions of highly nuanced gender and sexuality theory, after returning to Melbourne Park as a special guest of Tennis Australia.
Court made headlines for making the type of comments you would kind of expected from a highly religious 77-year-old during the 2017 postal plebiscite.
She did it once again late last year when she made comments the type of comments you would kind of expected from a highly religious 77-year-old who has just discovered what transgender athletes are during a fiery address at church.
Court has reportedly been ‘dragged’ and ‘totally owned’ on Twitter by thousands of millennial social commentators who would have bet what little financial security they have on Scott Morrison losing the 2019 election by a landslide.
“Ummm… Who is this dinosaur?” wrote one casual-online-youth-oriented-newspaper-reporter, @WhiteAllyOnJageraCountry.
“She sounds like she’s from the 1940s. I think old Margaret could do with watching a little bit of Girls”
“What a disgusting, cruel, monster for saying that shit. Who the fuck is she anyway?”
“I’d love to know her opinions on women in sport”
Margaret Court has responded to this backlash by pointing out that she’s highly religious and 77-years-old.
