Female CEO Says a Woman Shouldn’t Be President Because of the Bible and Hormones


A female CEO has just gained her 15 minutes of infamy by saying that women shouldn’t be presidents.

Cheryl Rios, the CEO of Go Ape Marketing in Dallas, argued that a woman would make for a lousy U.S. president, citing fluctuating hormones and biblical reasoning as the main factors why.

Rios made the comments on her Facebook page, where she said:

“If this happens – I am moving to Canada. There is NO need for her as she is not the right person to run our country – but more importantly a female shouldn’t be president. Let the haters begin . . . but with the hormones we have there is no way we should be able to start a war. Yes I run my own business and I love it and I am great at it BUT that is not the same as being the President, that should be left to a man, a good, strong, honorable man.”

Afterward, Rios gave an interview to her local CBS station in which she ranted about Hillary Clinton — or any woman — being president. Rios said in the interview:

“[Men and women] are built differently, we have different hormones In the world we live in, we have equal rights … and I support all of that. I don’t support a woman being president.”

After her story went viral, Rios took to Twitter to amend what she said, posting:

“’Will say this and leave it at that. I believe in what I believe. In this great country we are allowed our own opinions. Mine may be something you don’t agree with, and so be it. I am old fashioned, I am Christian and believe what I have said.”


Rios added:

“I didn’t say that women should be abused, or that they are stupid or can’t be lawyers, doctors or run successful businesses, I fully know and support that they can as I have done that. I mentioned one position only the Head of our government, the Head of State, the Commander in Chief, the President.

With that, please stop the nastiness as it wasn’t meant in that light. Peace, Love and Happiness.”

Well, you started it.
