The Australian tennis legend who actively opposes gay rights and who is under fire for her boycott of the pro-equality airlines currently claims to be bullied by the gay community. Court, who has one of three main show courts used at the Australian Open grand slam named after her, directly targeted Qantas airlines boss Alan Joyce who is gay. And now speaking to the Australian TV channel network the 74-year-old sportsman claims she is the one who is discriminated against. She denied being homophobic and said that she completely supported homosexual people in willing to live their lives but marriage is something saint and precious for her and she asked same-sex couples not to enter into it. “We are getting persecuted; we are getting bullied because we do have free speech also. It’s very, very much one-way. I think it’s very sad that they’re bringing my tennis into it. This is why I say it’s becoming a bullying from the homosexual, gay side of people; they are now bullying us,” she added.
