Let's not name Victoria's land marks after homophobes.

Melbourne's new Tennis Stadium is going to be named after Tennis great Margaret Court.

When we name one of our land marks after someone, it not only highlights their accomplishments, but it also brings attention to what they have done with their lives and promote since.

Yes, Margaret has had some admirable successes, but if we are to put her in the spotlight and she uses that to promote her conservative and discriminatory agenda then that is inappropriate.

We are all entitled to our views, but we should be looking at the whole person when we celebrate a person in such a way as naming a stadium after them. I think it would be much more appropriate to name the stadium after a great like Evonne Goolagong.

Let's not celebrate discrimination, please sign this petition.
