This is not a story with a good guy. Not a story where Andrew Tate is the hero, even if it sounds like it. I loathe Tate. He is a pervert, a pimp, a pornographer. But. He is also a symbol. Tate symbolizes massive cultural changes happening in the West regarding how we see relations between the sexes. His cartoonish, hyper-masculine persona attracted so much attention because it flies in the face of convention, and proclaims a message that contradicts every venerated institution. Whatever criticisms we might make of Tate, it must also be said that his message has resonated with millions and toppled a destructive prevailing orthodoxy.
