Andrew and Tristan Tate.

Who are they?

Misogynistic, human traffickers, rapists and so much more.

That is what mainstream media will tell you.

I don’t agree with everything they say or some of their daily conduct like their promiscuous lifestyle but I agree with their overarching message about masculinity. 

If you watch their long-form content and see what they say in context, you will see their character and understand why they believe certain things.

Here is a list of tenets that these brothers believe in:

  • Men should be fit because a healthy body is a healthy mind.
  • Men should work hard to achieve their goals.
  • Men should be as competent as possible.
  • Men have the sacred duty to protect and provide for their women and their families at all costs.
  • I believe that men and women are different and that each has their own unique and important strengths and abilities.
  • I believe that men have the sacred duty to raise strong, capable and honourable sons.
  • I utterly disapprove of violence in romantic relationships.
  • Men have a duty to hold true to their word and do exactly what they say they will do.
  • All men have the sacred duty to become men of upright and virtuous character and live above all possible reproach.
  • I believe in the merits of healthy competition and encourage all men to seek out competition to improve themselves.
  • I seek to help men overcome poor mental health by embracing hard work, physical improvements and shared masculine brotherhood.
  • I do good in the world and seek to help those less fortunate.


It is fair to say most men and women agree with these tenets. 

So what is the problem?

The problem is with how the mainstream media portrays them. They take snippets of content, take them way out of context and label them as misogynistic or bigoted.

Another problem I have noticed is that most people don’t like the way they talk. They don’t like the swearing. I understand. But put that aside and look at what is really being said. 

The common trend with my generation is that they are lazy. They take the opinions of others as their own whereas in actual fact they have no idea what they are talking about. 

That was me. 

I saw one YouTube short of Andrew Tate and decided I hate him. What was the problem? I didn’t do my own research and therefore didn’t have an educated opinion. Once I started looking for the truth about them I found it. 

They love and care for the people around them, especially the women and children. They care for each other and their friends. They care about men and their mental health and they have helped many men in this regard.

They have helped me see some things differently and it has changed me for the better. 

The thing I like about them a lot is that they teach about taking responsibility for your own life and setting higher standards for yourself so that you can become a successful, high-value person. 

Tate’s view on a topic like depression.

Andrew got a lot of criticism for this when he said he doesn’t believe in it because the little snippet was taken out of context. He doesn’t believe in things that can take away power from you like depression.

Sure people can feel depressed or down just like they can feel happy but it’s not this big thing that will keep you down and there is nothing you can do about it.

I agree with him.

Google why people get depressed, reasons: stress, drinking too much alcohol, using drugs, and hormone imbalances. We have control over all of these things. 

If you’re feeling down and now tell yourself “I am a depressed person” That is your identity and that is what you will be, you have decided that you are depressed. It is the belief in depression that gives it power.

This is what was weird about the backlash, people were defending depression. 

This is because it is easy to stay depressed and do nothing to fix it. These days having depression is a virtue, especially on the radical left. People jump on the depression bandwagon because they like the attention. 

The hard part is this: analyzing why I feel this way, making a plan to fix it and executing the plan. This requires two things: Good habits and discipline. 

Most people are depressed because of their circumstances. If you live a certain way you’re going to feel a certain way. It’s all cause and effect. 

Thus if you eat junk food, you don’t work out and you are overweight you will feel terrible about yourself.

Just to clarify, there are things like PTSD and mental health is a real thing, but if you have absolutely no reason to be depressed and you start complaining about it then you are just doing it for attention.

To reiterate, I agree with Andrew on this topic. Pills aren’t going to fix you. There are only two things that will fix you: God and taking ownership of your own life and stop blaming others for the situation you are in. 

This is just one of the topics that they are misunderstood on. 

So I encourage you, dear reader, to do your own research and not just blindly believe what people say. Seek out the truth and you will always find it.

What else about them?

Andrew has an organization called Tate Pledge where he donates $25 Million per year to feeding children in wartorn countries. Tristan sent food to the starving children of Palestine and personally drove emergency food and clothing up to the border of Ukraine to help the women and kids coming over from Ukraine to Romania.

In addition to that they have helped an agency fly 20 or more Ukrainian orphans to the U.S.A. to get resettled.

Here is everything that Tate Pledge covers: 

  • Syria – Water distribution 
  • Palestine – Food distribution 
  • Konni – Cataract Eye Operation 
  • Lebanon – Food distribution 
  • Yemen – Food Distribution 
  • Nigeria & Benin – Clean drinking water 
  • Somalia – Food distribution 
  • Syria – Donating to a school for orphans
  • Romania – Saving stray animals in wartorn countries 


Say about them what you want they are trying to make a difference in the world and they are succeeding.


Would I suggest to an immature Christian that they go listen to the Tate brothers? No. Would I take marriage advice from them? Maybe not.

Would I use them as examples of men who are a force for good for masculinity in a world where we are shamed for being men? Most definitely. 

If you don’t have a solid worldview based in God’s truth then you might just follow everything they say.

The Bible teaches that we must test everything and keep what is good and that is the attitude we should have when listening to anyone who has anything to say about anything.
