Maria Shriver Slammed Harrison Butker for 'demeaning' graduation speech..."I will not tell Mr. Butker to stick to kicking," she wrote of the Kansas City Chiefs player,

 

“I will not tell Mr. Butker to stick to kicking,” she wrote of the Kansas City Chiefs player, “but I would suggest next time he speaks to women first and listen to someone with a clearer take on where most women find themselves in 2024.”

 

 

Maria Shriver is speaking out amid criticism about Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker’s graduation speech at Benedictine College

On Thursday, the journalist took to social media to call out Butker following his now-viral commencement address, in which he shared his controversial views about women, abortion, the LGBTQ+ community, the COVID pandemic, and more. However, the majority of the backlash has surrounded the athlete’s comments about how he believes women should focus on being “homemakers,” rather than pursuing their own careers.

And Shriver, like many, slammed Butker online, calling his views about women “demeaning.”

“What point was Harrison Butker really trying to make to women in his graduation speech about their present day life choices?” she began in her post. “Did he really want them, aka us, to believe that our lives truly only begin when we lean into the vocation of wife and mother? I read that a couple times over, then I went to listen to it to make sure I heard it correctly. I did.”

The former First Lady of California continued, “Look, everyone has the right to free speech in our country. That’s the benefit of living in a democracy. But those of us who are women and who have a voice have the right to disagree with Butker.”

Shriver then opened up about how she was able to focus on career while also raising her four children.

“As a woman who has leaned into my vocation of living a meaningful life and working inside and outside the home to not only raise good humans but also raise up our country in various ways. I think it’s demeaning to women to imply that their choices outside of wife and motherhood pale in comparison to that of homemaker,” said Shriver, who shares Katherine, 33, Christina, 32, Patrick, 30, and Christopher, 26, with ex-husband Arnold Schwarzenegger.

She added that it “took a revolution” to get women “where they are today,” including giving women the right to vote, have access to birth control, and more. “Oh my god, don’t get me going, as there is so much more!” she said.
