Case in point – Andrew Tate. He's an American kickboxer-turned-influencer who proudly describes himself as a misogynist. He boasted millions of followers (before being kicked off various social media platforms) and was the eighth most-Googled person in the world at one point.
Among his controversial messages are that women "belong in the home", are "intrinsically lazy", and ought to "bear responsibility" for being sexually assaulted. (Side note: Tate is currently awaiting trial in Romania on charges of rape and sex trafficking.)
Simply put, Tate's message about women isn't nice. But he certainly has a strong audience on side.
Thankfully though, there are lots of male educators who are doing their bit to stand up against the Andrew Tate rhetoric, and show young men that being vulnerable is a really good thing.
One of these educators is Richie Hardcore. The 'anti Andrew Tate' if you will.

Richie has always been a fighter.
