Female tennis players subjected to vile abuse in Gympie
LETTER to the editor
TO THE local teenage boys in your 4WD who drove past the tennis tournament in Gympie across this weekend.
Why did you feel empowered to shout out "c***” to the female players at this event?
You did it multiple times on Saturday and Sunday.
I hope you continued to the nearest football field and shouted "small d****” to the male players so at least your crudeness was not sexist or misogynist.
Tennis parents and female players who were aghast at each pass by this 4WD are now questioning how welcome they are in Gympie and whether they should bring their talented children (some ranked as low as 26 nationally) and the economic benefits to such a crude town.
So sad. If you lose your job because of economic downturns in a Gympie due to less visitors and events you can now know why?
