    Tate’s Problematic Views On Women

    Tate is known for his offensive, derogatory, and downright stupid remarks on women and feminism. He once talked about how men and women cannot be equals.

    I don’t think the world has ever been equal. The modern society we live in has been built by men….and I think now if you look at the roles of the society I believe men are still doing their job”, he said.

    He continued, “But I don’t know if women are doing their job. Men are still out here building the modern world, but when they come home now the girl’s like ‘oh why should I cook for you?‘ ”
