Is Andrew Tate guilty of misogyny? Piers Morgan tried to get an answer
August 3, 2023
Andrew Tate has been the talk of the year, but since he’s banned from social media, it seems he's an even bigger sensation than before. He moved to Rumble platform where he has more and more followers and his content is still available to consume.
One of the main accusations against TopG is misogyny. It is believed his influence is toxic and harmful, especially for the younger male audience. Opinions are divided regarding public interest, and journalist Piers Morgan wanted to discuss some of Andrew’s questionable statements.
Andrew Tate vs Piers Morgan
If you are a lover and admirer of Andrew Tate and you miss his appearance on mainstream channels, then you have the opportunity to watch Cobra at Piers Morgan Uncensored on TalkTV.
They discussed topics such as misogyny, love, marriage, partnership, mental health, lifestyle, and many more interesting subjects. Piers challenged Andrew to explain some of his controversial statements. The show lasted circa 70 minutes and the overall impression is that this kind of dialogue is very much needed.
After a short and edgy introduction, Piers immediately gets to the point. The very first thing he wanted to talk about was Andrew’s opinions on women, and to clarify misogynistic accusations. As the conversation went on, Morgan insisted on very specific answers, digging in definitions of the words such as property, misogyny, authority, etc.
Andrew,on the contrary, was loyal to his own statements from before, but denying hateful feelings and behavior towards females.
Piers tried to point out the difference in terms such as ownership/partnership or having authority/having a permission to have authority, etc.
Tate persistently maintained his position that he does not represent a danger to women, but that, on the contrary, he is protective of them.
Piers showed honest intention to demonstrate who Andrew Tate really is. That was the goal of the interview. He asked Cobra if he regrets saying all disputable stuff to the camera, when he knows it can be misunderstood by young less intelligent men? Andrew explained he doesn’t live in regret, that’s not his style, but rather feels inconvenient. Moreover, he pointed out that now he wouldn’t say some things as before, in the way it can be misinterpreted. That was a breakthrough in the dialogue!
As Andrew said a lot of those interviews were made while he wasn’t as famous as now. That material is available and often edited and weaponized against him. He acknowledges that with a big follow and fame comes big responsibility and that some of the stuff he said could be misinterpreted or misunderstood, especially among the young male audience.
Andrew and Tristan’s reaction on Piers Morgan interview
Andrew and Tristan commented on Piers Morgan show, in an Emergency meeting just a few days ago.
As expected TopG is not satisfied with his treatment, especially with a part where Piers interrupted him. He feels as if he didn't have time to answer all the questions properly. Then he added: ”I have currently exhausted the ammunition that Matrix has against me”.
On the other hand, Tristan feels different, he said the interview was great, he really liked it. He believes Morgan did a good job, but Tristan resents him on 2 things: First, linking Andrew’s hosting at Alex Jones podcast with a very unpleasant lawsuit between Alex and Sandy Hook families. And second, bringing up the transgender topic which, according to Tristan,was never discussed in their shows. Both Cobra brothers agreed it was a trap for a new round in war with social media.
This was an example of how important and valuable it is to have open minded conversation between two persons who stand on the opposite side of the topic. Exchanging ideas is crucial for critical mind, for freedom of speech and that is something we can see in this conversation.
Younger audiences, especially children, absorb short form content. It’s available, simple, popular, doesn't require any research, and what is most important is that it is without dialog. This is why parents and other adults should be interested in individuals, such as Andrew Tate. They should get to the bottom of what he truly stands for. Not just to condemn some content without at least trying to understand its context. After listening to the whole interview TopG definitely looks better in many eyes.
To clarify terminology the public likes to use with Andrew’s name, here are some explanations. If you look for definitions in Merriam-Webster's online dictionary you can find the following.
1. hatred of, aversion to, or prejudice against women
2. something (such as speech or behavior) that reflects and fosters misogyny
Misogyny may be distinguished from the closely related word sexism, which signifies discrimination based on sex (although it most frequently refers to discrimination against women) and also carries the meaning “behavior, conditions, or attitudes that foster stereotypes of social roles based on sex.”
1. prejudice or discrimination based on sex
2. behavior, conditions, or attitudes that foster stereotypes of social roles based on sex
When you listen to Andrew’s videos, some of the content can be interpreted as sexism. He often expresses the opinion that men and women have different qualities and different role plays in life, but that can not be the same as misogyny.
