Puerto Rican legislator Carmelo Ríos came under criticism after he turned his reaction to fellow legislator comments to a gender tirade. The context of this being the also controversial expressions earlier this week by legislator María Charbonier, who expressed her opposition to a salary reform to the Legislative Assembly.
“I think we ought to have men and women that can legislate and that this becomes their full time job. That’s my position. We can’t go back to women being here, not because it sounds machist or feminist. I have to state it this way. Its a reality. In our social scheme women are in charge of the house and homes. That keeps on changing, but they have a bigger responsibility than men.”
“Creo que aquí tenemos que tener hombres y mujeres que puedan legislar y que esto sea su trabajo full time. Esa es mi posición. No podemos volver a que las mujeres estén aquí, no porque suene machista o suene feminista. Tengo que plantearlo de esa manera. Es una realidad. En nuestro esquema social la mujer está a cargo de la casa y de los hogares. Eso va cambiando, pero tienen una mayor responsabilidad al hombre”
