It does not pertain to the tennis at the Australian Open. It is about the political opinions of an ex-player. If threads about players' looks & families are officially Off Topic, I really don't see why threads about their political opinions aren't too. If people feel the need to engage in ritual abuse of everybody who dares to criticise current policy on homosexual matters, I wish they'd do it there.
Yes it does pertain -- tennis is going to be played at Margaret Court Arena, and there may be visible or vocal responses to Court's comments at that arena, off and on court.
The very title of this thread asks whether the name of the second biggest show court of the event should be changed.
As usual there's tons of talking down in your post -- "dares to criticize current policy on current homosexual matters." Okay, I get it, your hat's off to Ms. Court for her daring. If that's not what you mean, then consider your words.
As inferred by another poster above, people are so glib and condescending about homophobia, treating it as trivial, when they aren't that way about other forms of prejudice.
