Margaret Court Is Back With More Homophobia, Says ‘Tennis Is Full Of Lesbians’

Tennis legend Margaret Court just made another unforced error.

The 74-year-old Australian said Wednesday that her sport is ?full of lesbians? and even referenced Adolf Hitler in discussing how how young minds are being influenced.

Court, who has won a record 24 Grand Slam single titles, made the remarks after recently declaring she refused to fly Qantas because the airline supports same-sex marriage.

Her latest anti-LGBTQ volley will raise plenty of eyebrows as well.

?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,? she said on Vision Christian Radio, per The Guardian. ?And because they liked to be around heroes and what you get at the top is often what you will get right through that sport.?

?We?re there to help them overcome,? she added. ?We?re not against the people.?

The interview got weirder when Court commented on transgender children. 

?God?s got so much in [the Bible] about the mind, how it affects us, affects our emotions, our feelings,? Court, now a Christian pastor, said, according to CNN. ?You can think ?Oh, I?m a boy? and it?ll affect your emotions and feelings, and everything else and so that?s all the devil. That?s what Hitler did. That?s what Communism did ? got the minds of the children. And it?s a whole plot in our nation and in the nations of the world to get the minds of the children.?

Tennis greats Billie Jean King and Martina Navratilova, who are both gay, have already called for Court?s name to be removed from the stadium that bears her name at the Australian Open in Melbourne.

Current stars Andy Murray and Samantha Stosur, who is Australia?s top women?s player, have also spoken out against her remarks.

The 5 Hot Takes You Need To Unpack Trump’s ‘Covfefe’ Tweet

Many people have have been doing their best code-cracking impression of ?The Imitation Game? ever since President Donald Trump tweeted about ?negative press covfefe? early Wednesday morning. Seriously, what does it mean?

Typo? Probably. Nuclear code?! Hopefully not.

Here?s how it all started:

Fortunately, commentators across the media sphere were ready to sort it out. Here are five hot ?covfefe? takes to help you through the confusion.

  • CNN?s Chris Cillizza quickly asserted that ??covfefe? tells you all you need to know about Donald Trump.? He says that the President?s ?lack of discipline reveals that there is simply no one who can tell Trump ?no.? Or at least no one whom he will listen to.?

  • The New York Times took a more cerebral approach, pondering with every passing moment just how long the tweet would avoid deletion. One does wonder: ?Had the president?s lawyers, so eager to curb his stream-of-consciousness missives, tackled the commander in chief under the cover of night??

  • Like many outlets, and bookish people generally, USA Today headed over to the old dictionary. Rookie mistake, of course. Merriam-Webster, although snarky as always, just doesn?t have the answer.

  • Naturally, folks on Twitter jumped on ?covfefe? like it was the last typo the internet would ever know. Here at HuffPost, we rounded up the finest quips from people just trying to make sense of it all.

  • And, finally, New York Magazine?s Daily Intelligencer blog found those loyal Trump supporters who know that ??Covfefe? Is Just Another Way He?s Making America Great Again.? Very impressive, if true.

In summary, nobody knows. Except for, just maybe, one man:
