If you can stomach it, watch the news clip below and review our list of the Top 3 Most Ignorant Quotes by Sandy Rios. Believe us, it was close to impossible to narrow it down to just three.
Crazy Lady Quote #1: “We have to speculate on whether she has a male member or not, or whether it’s been cut off or not.”
Idolator Counterpoint: Yes, Gaga makes (a jokey) reference to the rumor regarding her genitalia in the beginning of the video. But is anyone debating that she did have a penis and then cut it off? We have no idea how castration got mixed into this.
Crazy Lady Quote #2: “Gaga and Beyoncé gay lesbian lovers? It’s disgusting… this is poison for the minds of our kids. And our minds.”
Idolator Counterpoint: You could look deeper into Gaga and Beyoncé’s relationship in the video, but not once do they kiss. Okay, Gaga does smooch a masculine-looking female prisoner, but as far as Bey is concerned, she and Gaga are just partners in crime. This is simply the close-minded complaint of homophobia. (Also, does being a “gay lesbian” cancel each other out to make you heterosexual?)
Crazy Lady Quote #3: “Our world is filled with sexual predators… they’ve done surveys to find out the men who do these kinds of things to young girls, something like 85% of them, are involved in some kind of porn. You may not watch it, your kids may not watch it, but the man next door who is a sexual predator probably does watch it. It should be outlawed. It should be banned. There is a limit to what we should tolerate.”
Idolator Counterpoint: Who, praytell, is the “they” who have done these alleged “surveys”? Rios doesn’t make it clear, either because such surveys do not exist or she is spreading inaccurate information. And since when does a sexual predator get all his ideas from Lady Gaga videos? We certainly would be able to pick them apart in a crowd easier if all sexual predators donned Kermit the Frog capes and bubble suits.
She is right about one thing. There is a limit to what we should tolerate. And Sandy Rios’ narrow-minded opinions are truly intolerable.
