Survey shows a third of teenage boys look up to internet celebrity and self-described misogynist Andrew Tate

“He’s a top G. He’s a cool dude. He knows what he’s doing.”

This is how hundreds of Australian teenage boys feel about internet celebrity, self-proclaimed misogynist and alleged trafficker Andrew Tate, according to a recent survey.

Not only did it reveal that the vast majority of guys know who Andrew Tate is, but many say they relate to his philosophies.

“Young men really connect with some of his core messages around drive and motivation…he cuts through with direction and clarity,” said Matt Defina, an organizational psychologist and chief of impact at The Man Cave.

“That’s really dangerous, because then they get caught up in his other, more harmful views.”

The data comes from Mr Defina’s Melbourne-based organization, which runs healthy masculinity and preventive mental health programs in schools.

The organization wanted to measure the impact the controversial British-American influencer had on young men after he rose to prominence last year.
