Commencement 2024: Kansas City Chiefs Kicker tells Graduating Women what They Really Want

“I think it is you, the women, who have had the most diabolic lies told to you,” Butker said. “Some of you may go on to lead successful careers in the world, but I would venture to guess that the majority of you are most excited about your marriage and the children you will bring into this world. I can tell you that my beautiful wife Isabelle would be the first to say her life truly started when she started living her vocation as a wife and as a mother.”

USA Today notes, “The team has several women executive vice presidents who have careers outside of the kitchen. What do they think of this? The team has celebrated Women’s History Month, not Woman You Better Get My Dinner on the Table Month.”

Butker added. “I’m on this stage, and able to be the man I am, because I have a wife who leans into her vocation.”

He also went on an anti-LGBTQ rant. Speaking of Pride month, Butker said: “Not the deadly sins sort of Pride that has an entire month dedicated to it, but the true God-centered pride that is cooperating with the holy ghost to glorify him.”

He also has instructions for what men should do and be: “To the gentlemen here today, part of what plagues society is this lie that has been told to you that men are not necessary in the home or in our communities,’ Butker said. “As men, we set the tone of the culture, and when that is absent, disorder, dysfunction and chaos set in. This absence of men in the home is what plays a large role in the violence we see all around the nation. “Be unapologetic in your masculinity. Fight against the cultural emasculation of men. Do hard things. Never settle for what is easy.”

The Chiefs declined to comment on Butker’s commencement address.
