"If you're an immigrant of United States that you have an extra duty of gratitude, rape at a look, our country opened up its arms to you, and even though Martinez had long been naturalized US citizen. There's always a sense that if If. You're an immigrant. Not Somebody born the United. States is a naturalized citizen. You're never really a real American, you're sort of an American through generosity of the country and therefore you ought to be a little more careful about the kinds of you boy here at our pleasure catapulting, yeah, something that was Martina was never interested in accepting the minute she became an American, she fully embraced her complete rights of dissent and speaking out, and that was the other thing right was if you think back to the big sports stars of nineteen eighties. Eighties kind of the iconic one being Michael Michael Jordan Michael. Jordan never opined even in the most anodyne waivers about any political controversy, because he never wanted to risk losing his very lucrative sponsorships, Martina was the opposite. You asked her what she thought about anything and out came. You know whatever opinion was on her mind without the site is regard to how people thought in that was a great example was to step forward under those repressive, you know. Conditions were journalists and political leaders were intimidated and speak her mind in such a provocative way. Absolutely so knowing all this, I agree with everyone who loved the pitch. I think it makes a lot of sense for to the story on the on the meaning of her. The meaning of you and how you to intersect. So as you're going along, when did when did things start to get novices? All laid out the article very well, but if you can just talk through also when things start to get, I started to get complicated in the process when he frontier count as a first hiccuper or speed bump. Yeah, I mean it was. Ever making films easy I think making a film about someone complicated as Martina is even more difficult because kind of it. It's difficult. To find the right director since I've never directed a film I'm not a filmmaker and it was a different kind of film. It wasn't. It was never going to be a biography of Martina, right? That's kind of been done. Some great books have been written about the life Martina. It was really going to be a kind of joint exploration of Mike Teenage years and how they were shaped by her. So there's already kind of a off the beaten path kind of film that required some inventiveness in order to figure out how to do, and then it also needs to be to be somebody who understood Martina. The way I understood her to really understand why. Why. She was such a compelling figure, so it took a while to get a director. We found one who has great took a few months, and we realized we didn't have the same creative vision. And then I finally found the perfect director who happened to be a trans woman who had directed a film about her own life as a trans woman. She grew up in Montana. Went Back to Montana and filmed what it was like. She was the captain over football team. She was the captain of the Tennis Team Kimberley Reid. And she went back to Montana for the first time as a woman after her transition and kind of film, the reaction and it was incurable, powerful moving film we met. We went to New York. We click perfectly. Our Vision for the film was incredibly compatible, but with enough creative attention to make it interesting. She was around to sign on, and then we were ready to start filming, and then in December of twenty eighteen. kind of out of nowhere Martinez had seen a photograph of a Trans Woman Who in her mid thirties, started to enter female cycling professional competitions where there were monetary prizes and you know. trophies and rankings, and all of that whose name is Rachel McKinnon, and unlike Renee Richards who kind of Martinez Reference for how Trans Women? Become women how they compete in sports. Rachel McKinnon had never had any gender reassignment surgery, so she had all the male genitalia with which she was born. she also went through the her whole life. She went through puberty as a man, she developed muscle mass as a man, and about a year before she enter these professional cycling events would she began to dominate? She began taking the hormonal protocols required by the sport to kind of transform the body physiologically from a male body into a female body. And the picture that became very popular among anti. Trans activist because it shows Rachel McKinnon kind of towering over her competitors, looking much thicker and more muscular and much taller, holding the gold medal next to these ciswomen who have who went through their whole lives, women designed to be provocative Martinez Saad and she went on twitter and kind of the spur of the moment, said wait a minute. How can this be I? Mean you can now just be a man and say that you're a woman. Not go through any of the surgeries. Just declare yourself a woman. Take a few hormones, and then you get to compete against women when all the prize money went all of the trophies, and then just go back to being a man. That seems incredibly unfair. And needless to say. It was expressed on twitter, which isn't exactly the epicenter of nuance and thoughtfulness and generosity. The reaction was very swift, was very vicious, and was very unforgiving, and immediately resulted in huge numbers of people, Declaring Martina Navratilova who had devoted her life to equality and fighting for people who are marginalized declaring her to be a big hit. You know kind of unrepentant hater that somebody who was anti trans and transphobic for having said what she said Martina apologized, said that maybe she hasn't thought through or educated herself enough about this topic. She deleted tweets that people were saying where offensive and she promised not to talk about it again until she was able to inform herself better about what the issues were. that. Caused my director, a trans woman to already start to get uncomfortable with Martina. Wait a minute. Who is this person? I'm about to make a film about, but still being a great director. You know she didn't need to love Martino. It was supposed to be a film that was going to examine not her just surf laws, but mine and all of our complexity. Complexity was about human complexity wasn't about the perfect human right. The problem was Martina adhered to our of silence. She went away for two months and quote. Unquote educated herself. When she came back, it was in the form of an op Ed that she published in the London Times in which he said, I've now informed myself and I believe more than ever. that. It is not only wrong for Trans Women to be competing against women who have lived their whole lives as women. It is a form of cheating. It is stealing. It is taking these people's prize money just because you take some Mormons, which means at anytime. He could stop and go back to being a man. Make Babies, and it's incredibly unfair and I'm vehemently opposed to it shortly after that Renee Richards, who was obviously a pioneer in transmissibility. She sued the WPA nineteen seventies for the right to compete as a woman after transition. gave an interview saying she agreed with Martina and she even went further, and said that the only reason why she sued for the right to compete on the WTA after her transition was because she was already in her forties, and it was a disadvantage was losing in the first round Virginia Wade in Chris ever, but she said had I been able to compete as a trans woman in my twenties. Basically I would have beaten these women to a pole. It would never have been a fair competition, and it's not fair, so Martina and Renee Richards jointly took this position. That is deemed in currently bigoted and hateful and offensive in the Trans Community which is a translation, shouldn't be able to compete in female athletic athletics and obviously created a major major problem. For the film in also particularly for the Trans woman who we were about to hire..

"Figures and dominant sport figures, too. So I think I think there's something that I think people should of just how ahead of her time Martina was especially I think with her enlisting engagement of Renee Richards as a coach which brought a whole different tier of trans ability at a time in the early eighties and Renee. Richardson played competitively matured in the late seventies, where that was just so incredibly ahead of the curve in terms of when trans visibility or people existing even being talked about yeah I mean there's so much star Tina that was transgressive right so. You know being openly gaming people forget that a year or two after before. Martinez came out Billie Jean King kind of was dragged out of the closet as result of being blackmailed by her traveling secretary Maryland Barnett, and it was considered scandalous because Billie Jean. King didn't WANNA come out of the closet and identify as as what was then. She called the bisexual woman whereas Martina. Was a lot more voluntary was kind of I'm not being dragged out of the closet. A scandal of shame I'm I'm coming out This is who I am increasingly comfortable with it and proud of it right as you say I'm GonNa. Put My wife in the players box so that when you scan the players box and have to tell everyone who's there to support me in Chris Evert her Catholic, mom and her sister, and whoever a boyfriend was at the time Jimmy Connors or other you know male athletes, but here I'm going to have you know what was called my long term companion or my special friend sitting next to my trans women coach, which you know, nobody even understood what it meant to be transit time. Let alone wanted to talk about it publicly, but then there's another aspect to Martinez transgressive, which I think probably impacted how she was talked about in perceived, and might even be more enduring, which was how she. She redefine what female athleticism was you know Martina I came on the tour in late in the mid to late seventies, she came out of Czechoslovakia. She famously defected and got to the US. She was eating fast foods in the US you know kind of the US diet filled with with fat, and she gained a lot of weight and and it was a big disadvantage for her. She had this huge talent, but you can really make her way around the court, and then in the early nineteen eighties when she developed a relationship with the Star woman basketball player at the time Nancy Lieberman who became her coach and put her through this unprecedented training. Regimen Martinez Body transformed into this. Incredible Muscular Force of nature that for women was deemed not only shocking, but inappropriate. I remember the one time Sammartino when I was a child, she came to. Miami competed in. This is ABC program called superstars where celebrities competed against each other, and I remember seeing the building muscles and veins on her arm, and it was common, not only for Sports, writers and sports announcers to comment derogatorily on her status as a gay woman, but also there was almost a sense like. She wasn't really a woman. Had, transformed era I. Don't have people probably remember that in the when Emily Marasmus at the age of nineteen, shocked making the finals of the Australian. Open, and she had a very big Physique Martina Hingis called are half a man that was the kind of language it was very commonly used to talk about. Martinez was almost fair that a real woman like Chris Evert had to compete against Martina and as she transformed her body, she became even more dominant. She beat Kristie fourteen times in a row at one point, but to this very day you know we celebrate really strong powerful bodies like Serena Williams. Because, Martina blazed that trail in the early eighties, when doing so was anything, but admired. Yeah, no, absolutely there was a lot of a lot of mockery of her and a lot of trying to dehumanize or deep woman is I guess her through thing that she was not a real woman. That's why she was winning because she was sort of had an unfair advantage. Advantage somehow that either they would equate her homosexuality with her being the woman with her physique thing. Let's a woman in the chew sort of beating up on these poor defenseless little girls out. There was a lot of time the framing that her career got, and then it took a long time for a lot of fans to come run. I'm sure some never did. But later in her, she got older making them. More sort of which is classic trajectory for athletes especially in tennis. As Folk, the focus on her softened a bit. You Serena as well yeah, that she became more sympathetic character and more more popular for the some of the time she went out. She was pretty at least got a lot of audible of support from the crowd I don't know if was refers. Yes, they did once for Chrissy or further sort of beloved stars the day but yet. Yet she had an absolute during to go on in that she he took a lot of lot of bravery I. think she resonate with a lot of people for that reason I remember. This is separate threat, but I was doing a. we did a show on here a few years ago about music about tennis, and there was a remarkable number of songs about Martina Navratilova by. Artists largely, but also other people. It's amazing only when we announce the film that that will get you that that I wrote about you know it made a big splash. Because it was being in partnership with Reese Witherspoon, so it penetrated into Hollywood circles and other places that might not otherwise have have reached and the amount of people, the number of people I heard from WHO said Oh wow! Martina was also my eight. Oh, my role model, secret hero, growing up, really shocked me because that was not something. You're aware of at the time. That was not a prevailing. And yet. She obviously meant so much. There's so many people who felt like they didn't have a role model with whom they could connect for whatever reasons of ostracization they were doing I. Remember reading I think it was a book by Michael Musharaff fallen the tour and nineteen ninety-one, and he talked about have called ladies of the court, and he talked about how there was a sort of traveling group of Martina, diehard through. Follow her everywhere the tour just her as being their North Star in a lot of ways, you know this group of Lesbian Women Who Song Martinez being there. Their leader is being their cultural symbol as being their face their. They won with her. They lost with her. Had so much invested in her and her career in her symbolism that I think she really really resonated with them for sure, so yes could be hit to the to the film so she. Martina retired from singles and ninety four play doubles again through I. Think Oh, six or seven. What? What made you want to to an this point? Yeah, and they're just by just add to that she she winds right. She wins her fifty ninth. Grand Slam title one month shy of being fifty years old..

"Thank you so much for doing. This is an absolute treat to have you come and yeah in very strange circumstances obviously for everybody in the world not just the tennis world. You're joining us from California. I believe how how things over there. How has lockdown? How you coping the situation and the lack of tennis in La Lives. Well I would say over all I'm really proud of my three teenagers at a time. When teenagers want to distance themselves from their parents. They've accepted what has to be done. I feel like California in the mayor of Los Angeles I live. We live in Los Angeles. So we've had some leadership both at the state level and and at the city level that has been really strong very consistent and I think that's one of the reasons why Are Part of the United States is actually done much better than expected in pleased that the generation who the order to stay at home. It's really counterintuitive to what they want but There's been a lot of acceptance in I can tell you as a homeowner sixteen years ago bought up property with a private tennis court. Tennis court is one of the reasons why a couple of us in the family have kept better sanity. How much you missing professional tennis right now? Well you know I missed Indian. Wells would have been an easy drive. I missed that one. The most I will tell you because of the business of my home life regardless of a pandemic or even if I'm just driving my three kids around and The the level of detail that I would follow the tour from week to week is not as detailed as it would be like when I worked for ESPN at Melbourne and maybe look the weeks leading up to Melbourne. I knew what was going on in the lead up tournament so for me personally. I haven't missed it that much but we haven't yet gone past one of the tournaments. I think would impact us the most which would be say for for me. Roland. Garros Wimbledon. I mean I thought the tennis will did a great job of I mean it was tough call for Indian Wells. I remember that Sunday night when it was called It took everybody by little bit by surprise but it just started the domino effect of what this virus in the effects on the world sports It just started a series of closures around the world yet studying to look like a very pristine cooled by by that tournament. Looking at your Your social media. You look like you've taken the opportunity during lockdown to have the most neatly and cleanly arranged trophy show in all of Iraq in Pam. Yeah one of my first during lockdown one of the first things I was thinking. Well little things can I post What content would be interesting and I thought all right well. My mantle pretentious fans would be interesting to see The the major championship doubles trophies. Most support try one with Martina. There was a US Open with a net. Pashas vary of there was some Fed Cup stuff. There was recognition of our Grand Slam doubles year as well as the year. I got the finals of US. Open in singles at Sixteen. So I thought it was kind of a fun tour and I guess most of the stuff I posted that one had the most views in. I think it just shows you how much people want to see one way or another or or touch any way major tennis. He absolutely in all of these things that that you just mentioned there. I I really want to talk about. I in first and foremost your your partnership with Martina Navratilova. Seventy four doubles titles together including Twenty Grand Slams. You're you're still the most successful women's doubles partnership of all time. What what made you such a great partnership the too well. I think there are a lot of things I think when you look at how we played our singles The style of play with serve volley back in the eighties. That was kind of. That's how you play doubles back then too so it was really Our our singles games translated into being great doubles players. Naturally the lefty righty combination. If you look in tennis history whether it's nukem Roach whether it's the Brian twins whether it's McEnroe Fleming There's a lot of great Lefty righty doubles teams. I just think you know the choice of who serves the sun's tougher righty. There's just a lot of things that are beneficial to having a lefty righty Our personalities you don't have a partnership that long if your personalities don't gel well We enjoyed each other Our senses of humor clicked in. There are a lot of those matches through the years where we would play after. Martina was the featured match at night So we played and we had to wait late night tennis So if you didn't enjoy each other and our coaches got along. Well obviously we had teams. That were much smaller back then. My team was generally just one Martino. It's one of the first that brought in teams of more than one But our team's got along well and so it just led to who knew that January eighty-one with lead to what it ended up leading to it was I think ultimately nineteen eighty that Martina. Kool G to US could be your your partner partner. What do you remember about that? Phone call was at Deer Creek Country Club in Deerfield Beach Florida having a late practice and I'm a member. Lee Jackson longtime referee for the tour and She came out and You know years and years before anyone has self owner yet said Martinez on the phone and I mean whoever is practicing with the it was the practice was abandoned Iran in got it got on the phone. And W T tour office and You know she asked me. She doesn't mix her words. She didn't learn a lot of pleasantries. Just asked me if I had that commitment to doubles partner for the next year and I said no I did not. I had just the. Us Open just a month prior. I'd gotten into the finals with Betty Stove in Betty Stove his last tournament. And we lost Billie Jean King and Martinez. I think it was six six or five and five and I think that was probably the last indicator. Martina needed that. She she she was looking for. A younger partner was starting. Her career could play for a period of time and so it was obvious it. I didn't even have to break commitment. Thank God because if I'd had a commitment to somebody I mean that would have been a tough a tough one to pass on playing doubles with Martina. So I'm glad it worked out that I didn't have a commitment to a partner confessed to a tip off from for Mary Carillo but she has suggested that that I ask you about asking Martina to sign a cocktail Napkin to seal to seal team together forever. Yeah well we had already been together a long time because we we. We went through a stage at think Springtime of eighty four. We lost in the tournament of Champions in Orlando. We didn't lose again for over two years so I think it was. One hundred nine straight matches When we hit a one hundred wins and it was in Eastbourne so the tournament director George. Tendon threw a party for us that night. And we were celebrating To to the history of tennis no one can remember doubles team ever hitting one hundred wins in a row so A I decided to take that moment. I wrote a contract on a on a peeper. Napping it says I'M MARTINA NAVRATILOVA. Promise always to play doubles with Pam. Shriver and I had a witness line. The George Hendon was signed in as I stood up to give the toast and give the contract Martinez in my head ended up in a lamp shade so it was kind of like it was funny and it was. I have that I have. I still have that cocktail napkins somewhere. But it's back in Baltimore. My hometown Collecting dust but will not be thrown out. One hundred nine matches is is truly extraordinary April nine hundred ninety three to July one thousand nine hundred five did you did you feel. Invincible is a team. Well a lot of those matches we went into the matches knowing we were going to win them. But there was a handful that were incredibly dicey and I remember one in particular that was Right in the middle while it was about win number seventy five and it was in Madison Square Garden against our longtime rival. They were generally the number two team behind us. For many of those years Souckova Elena Sakaba Claudia. Coda kill and we came down to a tiebreak in the final set and I remember it was five. All it was late in the tie-break whenever I was returning and Martina just said return it low and I'm going to go and I'm like yes ma'am you know like you WanNa. That was great. It was like a plan now. Of course then you still have to execute but I remember as soon as I hit the return like that's going to be a low. It was a good return. Sheet timed or poach perfectly. Put It away and then we won the next point on serve so that was the hairiest moments that was when we came within two points of losing. But other than that. I don't remember match where we were like. Matchpoints down we. We won a lot of those matches during that streak in

"martina navratilova" Discussed on 860AM The Answer

"All right, everybody. Got a disagreeing coal go to that. First. Phoenix, Arizona, gentlemen. Thank you for calling John. Thank you. Thanks for taking my call. What I what I initially called? I wanted to disagree with you because the main thrust of your disagreement was that it cheapens the holocaust. And it does I agree with that. But what really got under my skin when I heard that comment this morning that that highlight if you will. Her saying that. Equating Donald Trump's statement with Hitler. Keeping the holocaust. But that. Cheapening america. She's keeping us at our value. I I said that I said she's equating Nazism. He's equating I sat she's equating American heritage with German heritage you said that in the last just in the last couple of minutes ago when I when I initially called you hadn't. Oh, I see. Oh, oh, you're only disagreeing that didn't make that point. But I ended up making the point. Okay. Fair enough. All right. Appreciate your calling. This is what this is what is happening. In the United States of America. This is what goes for mainstream. Left wing thought. And this is what your kids are learning. Do you understand? This is the most important you kids are not watching CNN. But your kids are hearing this at school. American heritage is no different from Nazism. That's what they're hearing western civilization is no different from white supremacy. That was the New York Times. This is mainstream left-wing stuff folks, New York Times is one so liberal papers. Now, a left-wing paper. Radical left in many ways. I mean they series of articles on how fathers are not necessary. I have no idea what goes on there. I mean, I try to bring it to your attention. It's. I don't know what they have to do for there to be an alarm about the left. I don't know. I think it's I think it's increasing. I think it's increasing awareness of how utterly destructive leftism is. But it's taking a long time. I'll give you an example of where apparently there really is an awakening. This is a big deal. Let me see here. There is an awakening to the this the transgender issue as having very very. Morally suspect elements to it. And that is with regard. Here we go. This is very interesting this from the independent in Britain. Fury as X Olympia and Sharron Davies says trans women should not compete in women's sport. This it's possible. I I don't get engage in wishful thinking, I am as regards the human species. I'm a pessimist. However, there may they may have crossed the line, which is amazing because the left never crosses lines out of too far. And because they have the world's media on their side. And they have the world's kindergarten teachers and elementary school, teachers and teachers and college teachers on their side. That's a lot of people to have on your side. But they may may just may have gone too far with this one male bodies constantly defeating females in female races. And in female sports. I reported to you last week Martina Navratilova. Martina Navratilova one of the great tennis stars of the twentieth century as also outspoken gay woman and was a big factor in LGBT sports world. She was kicked out. She's no longer allowed to speak on their behalf. She's not affiliated with any any LGBT organization. They kicked her out. Because she said it's not fair for male bodied women. To compete with female body women, which is so obvious that you have to be a leftist not to see it. I told you this is this is my one of my more, recent realizations. I do believe left is it makes you worse. I don't think bad people. There are bad people who were attracted to leftism, but most of the time left this and makes decent people indecent. This is a perfect example anyone who thinks it is fair to women to have male bodies who say they are women compete with them is a worst human being than they were prior to leftist ideology. Former Olympian Sharron Davies MVP, which means the member of the British empire. So it's a it's a it's I think that's being knighted. Even the women. Don't get a search title. Has been accused of of quote, fueling hate. That fuelling hate after saying the transgender women should not be allowed to compete in female sport that cool. That's fueling hate. The comp-. Listen, the more the left does this. The the better chance we have the that's why the president kept saying he wants them to advocate, socialism, any Republican running against people who advocate, socialism has a better chance of winning any Republican voting against a democrat who was four the green new deal has a better chance of winning winning. As they get crazier and crazier they've become this. It's now lunatic leftist. This is a great example the competitive swimmer who want to swimming silver with the nineteen eighty Olympics in Moscow and two Commonwealth. Gold medals set her comments were not transphobic and claim she had spoken to many other female athletes who feel the same way. No kidding. I have nothing against anyone who wishes to be transgender Davies wrote in on Twitter. However, I believe there was a fundamental difference between the binary sex. You are born with and the gender you may identify as well that's enough to render her pro science and anti left to protect women's sport. Those were they male sex advantage should not be able to compete in women's sport. That is exactly right. It's so basic. The tweet has since received more than twenty two thousand likes and three thousand retweets. The fifty six year olds comments were supported by many including Olympic track winner. Sally Gunnell gold. Medallist boxer Nicola Adams OB and gold middle distance athlete Dame Kelly Holmes seat once a few people start speaking out against the left. Many more. Join. That's the key here. They believe and they're right. They they intimidate people because they will ruin your life. They don't disagree with you. They ruin your life. Let's have the left is always operated since Lenin. But once enough people start, actually, speaking out, then there's a rift, and there's gonna be a big rift, by the way, the silence of the feminist movement gives you an example of the moral the moral state of the feminist movement that they are not speaking out on behalf of women on this issue. This is this is like a smoking gun that feminism is just another left wing movement. You women just like left wing Jews, use use the holocaust and black black.

"Hearing the Mitch Albom show. News talk, seven sixty. This story is a little old the earlier this month, but I never had a chance to comment on it. And I was astonished now I've had a chance to get to know Martina Navratilova over the years, not personally. Well, but interviewer multiple times at different tournaments covered. Her Wimbledon always found Martina Navratilova to be a very honest and actually kind person the the. Perception when she was battling against Chrissy. Everett was a Chrissie Evert was a sweet sort of schoolgirl Martina Navratilova was his robot from behind the iron curtain, and in point of fact, Chris Evert was this stele iced player and Martina was the one who would cry. But because Martina Navratilova very early on before it was as as as common or as some might say even fashionable to announce your sexuality. She announced that she was a lesbian frequently brought her girlfriend to the matches would would wave at her. And acknowledged her all this at a time when it wasn't what it was now. So I think Martina Navratilova has earned her stripes in the in the LGBTQ community. But because we live in a time today, where if you don't agree with a particular organizations or agencies point you on everything they will throw you over the side of the buses fast as anybody else Martina Navratilova is now on the out of certain LGBT community people and organizations, including an organization called athlete alley which aims to support the rights of LGBT people. They've cut ties with Martina Navratilova. Now, she was. You know, someone who was a spokesperson cut ties because she dared to say that she felt that it was cheating to allow transgender women to compete in female competition because they would benefit from unfair physical advantages. She wrote a column so she wasn't misquoted about this. She wrote a column in the Sunday Times that led to immediately remove her from their advisory board now in the column she wrote. Quote, a man can decide to be female take hormones required, by whatever sporting organisations required win everything in sight, and perhaps earn a small fortune, and then reverse his decision and go back to making babies if he so desires, it's insane. And it's cheating. I am happy to address a transgender woman in whatever form she prefers. But I would not be happy to compete against her. It wouldn't be fair. They immediately disowned her and said, she's perpetuating dangerous myths about transgender women Martina Navratilova's Martina Navratilova was recent comments on trans athletes are transphobic another calling. Avowed lesbian, transphobic based on false understanding of science and data. Again, we have talked about this science and data. We had a guy on here who went changed his sex change back and he himself. Don't quote me said there is no real science on this. And and they and perpetuate dangerous myths that lead to the ongoing targeting of trans people do discriminatory laws, hateful stereotypes and disproportionate violence. Boy Martina must be wondering what the hell she did. So if that was the case are you saying that if Caitlyn Jenner was thirty five she can compete in the Olympics as a woman as a woman, happy Athlon, and it will be absolutely identifies. I totally get what Martina Navratilova singer. She's she's talking about dubious people. She's not talking about people who just you know, honestly, they pursue this path in life much earlier on and they end up competing later on in life is although there have been cases remember though, not too long ago. There was an athlete. Who? I think that was her hermaphrodite. But people were are gone fair on there. But she, but she's saying what most athletes who are concerned with a fair level playing field would say, and okay, I am not expert enough to agree or disagree. But I don't think we throw her out of an organization. How dare she said? She's not saying she hates transgender people. She's not saying she doesn't feel they have a right to exist. But heaven forbid, you say one thing that's not up to code of whatever the the Mark marching lockstep attitude of your particular identity politics organization, and you're out she's an icon. This woman has done more for gay rights than the negative the athletes combine an absolute icon, a really intelligent woman and she dared to state her point of view out. This is the country and world that we live. Back with more right after this. Seven sixty WJR News, Marie Osborne.

"If you've been oil to this show or you've heard about us before other stood that progressivism is a cult. And yesterday, we talked about the difference between an opponent an enemy, okay? Martina Navratilova for those of us that believe in the moral foundations of western civilization. She isn't opponent. She is opposed us in numerous countries on the marriage issue. She has even called for tennis stars from countries that have not legalized essentially, the redefinition of marriage and won't speak out about it. She's called on them to do. So she is an activist. On this issue. She's probably the most decorated lesbian athlete in human history. I mean, we forget if you weren't alive in the in the eighties and you didn't follow tennis. We're talking about. This was Serena Williams before Serena Williams. And she destroyed a lot of these women. I mean, these matches in many cases weren't even entertaining. They were bus. She was that much better than everybody else. In wall. There may have been whispers about Billie Jean king's sexual proclivities in the seventies. Martina Navratilova was was pioneer an outing herself as gay. She is she is not a supporter of a lot of the causes that we would advocate on shows, and like this in places here the blaze. And now she's being told because she won't take the final step. From moral ambiguity to moral insanity. Like the rap video that Aaron played there at the end of the montage because Martina Navratilova won't look at that video and say, yeah, I think that's exactly where the future needs to head because she won't take that final step. She's she's embraced their moral ambiguity right to the break right to the. Edge. And now they're saying to people like her the next generation the next generation of these activists who essentially are are profiting off drafting off of her exhaust from from from the the groundwork that activists like her late. I would guess won't be four Ellen outed herself. Martina Navratilova was probably the first open lesbian, most westerners ever rooted for and look beyond what they may have morally disapproved to applaud. Her exploits her merits. And now the next generation instead of building on on on her the ground that she is broken. They are telling her now that if she is not willing to grow crossover for moral ambiguity into flat out moral insanity. Basically, they're saying to her we want less rainbow and more jihad and the rainbow jihad that's what they're telling her. Then she's not woke enough, and she has to go. So a couple of points on this. If if they're going to do this to Martina to route to Lova, what do you think they're gonna do to you and me? If they're doing this to essentially there, George Washington. Do you? Given the chance. Think about that. Didn't want you to also think about this. This is how you know. It's a Colt. And not a political movement. See colts, always always end up punishing those within the compound. They claim to be the most benefiting and it always happens when somebody or a group of someone's within the compound begin to think critically. See Martina Navratilova really believes all that gala -tarian feminist horseback. She believes it. And that's why she's looking at this and saying why are we letting men take away opportunities for women? She really bought the propaganda. This was never about feminism or anything of that nature. This was always about. Undoing western civilization. That's what it was always about by any means necessary. And when's this victim class is exhausted its usefulness? We just move onto the next. So Martina Navratilova has exhausted her usefulness now, so she will be discarded. Despite all of the water..

"And this is where I get cross ways with a lot of people about my point of view. And, and this will be a harsh statement. I'm not fighting to do the bad things white guys do. That's not my fight in life. I'm actually fighting to represent my family and the people I care about entering present quite honestly God in a way that brings honor to my family and the church that I grew up with, and I've made a lot of mistakes a lot of public mistakes, but I'm willing to claim them own them and not sit there and say, well, so and so got to do this and so on. So got to do that. Why can't I do it when you make a mistake and only, yeah, let's get nuance because I liked the fact that you brought that layer up. I took exception Martina Navratilova said because. In totality. She's in term internalize the discrimination against the women in this sport, like she's accepted it to a point where she says, well, they get away with it, but why would we want to get away with the same thing? And you can take that to other fastest of life is say, ooh, that's not a good place to be. I respect what you're saying. Like, I don't want to be as bad as someone on the other side in terms of race or gender because I don't wanna play down to my lower self. Yeah, but it one level of equality and fairness is if I do play down to that level and my being harshly punished or justly. Punish Serena saying, I wasn't justly punished because the men do the same thing and man after man in the tennis world has tweeted that we get away with it. I agree. But man after man after man isn't the greatest player of all time, like Serena's troop different. After man after man doesn't have the history of demonstrative behavior that Serena does. The only person I would maybe analogize her too, and I don't think she's asked for as McEnroe was, but, but again, it's just like when I say people aren't really doing the homework and people were jumping in brand new to this topic I because again, I'm not a tennis expert, but I spent the past two days just like research, right? Trying to get some context in nineteen eighty one. John McEnroe won Wimbledon. And when you win Wimbledon, they make you a honoring memorable member of the Wimbledon lawn club and croquet club. Okay. They publicly announced we're not putting you in because your behavior brings disrepute to tennis, and so they wouldn't let him in the All England lawn club because they felt like his behavior was so bad, so they've been wanting to be associated with. That's a white man. They did that too. And so for anybody that's got revision, this. History. The John McEnroe didn't pay a price for being over the top and all the historic is just wrong and inappropriate. And so just imagine if Wimbledon had done that to Serena and they just people's heads would melt and explode and we'd have a civil war. And so I just I just think when you're the greatest player of all time, you sit on that throne, there's a higher expectation you, there's some things you have to carry. And particularly when you get to aids thirty five thirty six like Serena and your mom and your wife and things like that. I just don't want her. I don't want the fight to be. I wanna act as bad as John macaroni somebody's guys, I, I want to fight to be. I'm going to leave you all with no doubt. Not only am I the greatest player? I'm the greatest person you've ever seen in the sport. Oh, you wanna? Frankenstein and athlete, which is. Because heard gift at times is her curse..

"Welcome to the job match our fresh for even more than thirty years later romo's will be going through much the same motions. He says that all of this was exactly right. He says that the he says that romo's did exactly the right thing. He says, all players know that destroying a racket on the court is a mandatory code violation. The game penalty was triggered after Williams in a lengthy tirade loudly accused the pair of being a thief, stealing points from her romo's let the tirade slide show in great composure until Williams accused him of cheating. All players know that publicly attacking the honesty of the fire is going to result in an immediate code violation. Romo's made absolutely correct calls. As the chair umpire in each of these three incidents. Now, if you mention that Serena acting badly or that when Serena's been losing in the past, sometimes she loses her cool and acts badly, then this makes you some sort of sexist and racist, but I'm not the one who's making this claim to other umpires. It's Martina Navratilova. So Martina Navratilova said this gym. Mr. Ramos effectively had no choice, but to Docker point, this is Martina Navratilova probably if not the greatest women's player of all time. Maybe the second greatest women's player of all time after Serena Williams, she says, miss Williams, opted to argue about this. She insisted she didn't teach wasn't coaching. Therefore she shouldn't have been docked, but she didn't. It doesn't matter whether she knew she was receiving coaching. She was being coached her own coach, admitted it after the match. So at this stage she'd been giving warning when that couldn't be dismissed retroactively head smashed a racket on Matic violation. Mr. romo's effectively had no choice, but to Docker, appoint. Says in, here's what Navratilova says, if in fact the guys are treated with the different measuring stick for the same transgressions. This needs to be thoroughly examined must be fixed, but we cannot measure ourselves by what we think we should also be able to get away with. This is exactly right if you think that the unpire should be harsher on the men. That's one thing. If you think Serena should be able to get away with things because men have gotten away within the past. I'm not sure how you argue that in that in politics we call that what aboutism Jonathan last over at the weekly standard makes this point says Serena has a history of lashing out in big matches when she's getting beaten by inferior players in two thousand nine Serena was getting work by Kim Clijsters in the semis of the US Open when she got called for footfall. Again, the call itself was correct. She exploded a tirade against the female line. Judge that included a physical threat in the two thousand eleven finals. The US open Serena was getting beat by Sam stowed, sir. When she yelled in the middle of the point, the chair on called interference again correctly, and Serena exploded her saying, aren't you going to screw me over the last time? Are you coming after me? That is totally not cool. Don't even look at me your hater. You're very unattractive inside again. This doesn't change the fact that Serena Williams is. The is the greatest female player ever, but she basically stole the headline from an up and comer and that is really convey terrible thing to do. The thing that I like about this is that there are some actual tennis experts were coming out and speaking the truth and not being intimidated by the by the wave of publicity that has followed all this other things that I like.
