Conversations about the dangers of toxic masculinity are not new, but recently a number of posts and videos have been circulating on social media of controversial influencer Andrew Tate, which have reignited the discussion in 2022.

The Quicky speaks to an expert in gender and violence, and a relationships guru to find out why people are still interested in these outdated ideas, and just how dangerous this ideology is to young men and women.
