Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying became the most high profile victims of campus activism, after they were driven out of Evergreen College in Washington State, USA.

As evolutionary biologists, they dealt with the questions of sex and gender in the middle of one of the most progressive colleges in the US.

Recently, they have become inaugural members of the so-called Intellectual Dark Web. The aim of the IDW is to have difficult, nuanced conversations in public.

In this conversation with Rebel Wisdom’s David Fuller they explain how their experience at Evergreen has influenced their discussions of sex and gender.

Heather and Bret will be appearing at the first ‘Rebel Wisdom Summit’ on May 12 in London. For more information, visit
