Rios Can’t Believe Women Can Run Anything

Sandy Rios is another one of those strange women like Phyllis Schlafly who thinks that all other women should be in subservient roles to men not only at home but everywhere else too. On her radio show, she expressed complete disbelief that there were female FBI agents on TV after the shootings at the Washington Navy Yard. She also seems baffled that anyone there might need some sort of counseling.

And she was joined by Elaine Donnelly, who thinks women shouldn’t be in the military too. Rios marveled that “it was the chicks running the show.”

    If Rios thinks women should always be subservient to men, what is she doing with he own radio show? Isn’t telling other people how they should live a man’s job? Why isn’t she at home making dinner for her husband?

    The level of hypocrisy when women in positions of power say that women shouldn’t be in positions of power is impressive, to say the least.

    Rios and Schlafly represent women who simply don’t want any adult responsibility, and are happy to live under a purely patriarchal system as long as it grants them the ability to remain in the secure bubble of permanent childhood and leave all the difficult and dangerous work (and decisions) to the men. And the direst threat to their world is a woman who shows the ability to think and act like an adult, which then gives them less excuse to avoid doing the same.

    It’s “Family Values”, not “competing with the Men values”!

    In any event, they’re right. Have you ever seen women try to do something? They get halfway through and then get distracted by all their ladyhormones. And they can’t even write their names in the snow!

    Perhaps, but since both women are Christians, the following bible verses provides a different motivation; that females are fundamentally flawed and therefore women in general are not worthy to be over [adult?] males. 1 Timothy 2 [RSV]:

    11 Let a woman learn in silence with all submissiveness. 12 I permit no woman to teach or to have authority over men; she is to keep silent. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve; 14 and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor. 15 Yet woman will be saved through bearing children, if she continues in faith and love and holiness, with modesty.

    Paul’s hatred toward females, actually God’s if one believed the Bible are his words, is mindful of the hatred conservative Christians also demonstrate towards gay people and their families. That all of these people are less than human relative to an adult heterosexual male.

    “It was the chicks running the show! Unbelievable! Anyway, we’ll be back with more ‘I’m a chick running my own show’ after these messages.”

    Perhaps, as is often the case, the bible verses provide the justification, which is different from but complementary to the motivation.

    I’d rather have the chicks running the show rather than the turkeys like Rios and Donnelly.

    So what exactly went wrong with the response to the Navy Yard shooting that they’re being derisive about the “chicks running the show”? It seems like they’re saying, “Everything went well. Can you believe so many women were in charge? It’s disgusting.”

    @2: Not that I disagree with the overall premise of your comment that what Rios said was stupid, but I really wouldn’t consider a radio host gig (i.e. Rios’s job) as a “position of power.”

    “but I really wouldn’t consider a radio host gig (i.e. Rios’s job) as a “position of power.”

    Well, not to us, maybe, but to Rios, you better believe it feels like one.

    “Power” is a relative term. I know some “powerful” people. Most of them are “powerful” within a very narrow bandwidth. A few have the ability to influence or even control a lot of peoples’ daily activities and compensation. Not surprisingly (at least to me) the ones with the least power feel the need to exert it most when the opportunity presents. Sandy Rios is in that last category.
