YouGov data reveals men agree with Andrew Tate

A survey reveals that approximately one-fourth of young males in the United Kingdom concur with Andrew Tate’s views on how women should be treated.

YouGov data indicates that 24% of men between the ages of 18 and 29 who have heard of the self-proclaimed misogynist and social media influencer concur with his views on “how women should be treated.”

14% of this demographic also agreed that a wife is her husband’s property, while 7% agreed that a woman’s rape or sexual assault is her responsibility.

Tate first came to the attention of the public in 2016 when he was expelled from Big Brother after a video appeared to show him assaulting a woman. His videos with the hashtag #AndrewTate have been viewed more than 14 billion times on TikTok since he rose to social media prominence, becoming known for his controversial views on women.

Tate states in these recordings that rape victims must “bear responsibility” for their assaults, that women belong in the home, and that 18-year-old females are more attractive than women over the age of 20 because they have “been through less dick”

Together with his brother Tristan, the 34-year-old is currently under investigation for suspected human trafficking, organised crime, and rape, all of which they strongly deny.

The research conducted by YouGov revealed that a 38% of males between the ages of 18 and 39 share the same opinions as the influencer. 78% of those who view the influencer positively are in agreement with his views about achieving career success, 64% agree with him regarding masculinity and how men should be viewed, and 54% support his views on the treatment of women.

Teachers around the globe have shared their concerns about the effect Tate has on young male students. They have observed these boys working together to oppose girls, and feel that Tate’s videos, which promote ‘misogynistic’ beliefs, are affecting the way these boys perceive the world and developing their beliefs.

An educator described an incident in which an eight-year-old boy said, “Men are superior. We’re more powerful, more intelligent than women. That’s the way it is.” Results from the YouGov research illustrate, however, that it is not just kids who believe Tate’s views.

Tate was especially popular among male youths; a drastic disparity between men and women’s views of him was apparent: 12% of male respondents reported a favorable opinion of Tate, whereas only 3% of female respondents did.

66% of women of all ages and 52% of males of all ages “strongly disagreed” with Tate’s views. 6% of all Britons held a “favourable” opinion of Tate, 8% “didn’t know,” 36% “had never heard of him,” and 49% “held an unfavourable view.”

Some of Andrew Tate’s comments

  • On men and women: “I think the women belong to the man.”
  • On escaping rape convictions: “40 percent of the reason I moved to Romania. I’m not a f****** rapist, but I like the idea of just being able to do what I want. I like being free. If you’re a man living in England or America or any of the western world right now, you’ve decided to live in a country where any woman, at any point in the future, can destroy your life.”
  • On how only men should have multiple partners: “Read the Bible, every single man had multiple wives, not a single woman had multiple husbands. Female promiscuity has always been disgusting and frowned upon.”
  • On ‘masculine’ life: “The masculine perspective is you have to understand that life is war. It’s a war for the female you want. It’s a war for the car you want. It’s a war for the money you want. It’s a war for status. Masculine life is war.”
  • On achieving success: “The temporary satisfaction of quitting is outweighed by the eternal suffering of being a nobody.”
