The head of a Texas marketing firm has drawn criticism — even from one of her clients — after saying in an online post that “hormones” should disqualify Hillary Clinton from being president.
“We’re built differently, we have different hormones,” Go Ape Marketing CEO Cheryl Rios told KTXA-TV. “In the world that we live in, I understand that there’s equal rights and that’s a wonderful thing and I support all of that. I don’t support a woman being president.”
Rios said she has drawn fire after posting on Facebook that if Clinton is elected, she would be “moving to Canada.”
“With the hormones we have there is no way we should be able to start a war,” she wrote. “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.”
Rios later told KTXA that besides the alleged hormonal issue, the U.S. could not afford to have a leader who would be “looked at differently” than a male president.
“There’s an old biblical sound reasoning why a woman shouldn’t be President,” she added, though she did not mention any specific passages to support her argument.
One of Rios’ clients, motorcycle store owner Rick Fairless, expressed disbelief at her stance.
“I can’t comprehend someone who thinks a woman can’t do anything a man can do.” Fairless said. “They can. I promise you they can.”
