Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying on Sex, Gender and Preparing Kids for Adulthood (Videos)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

In this 11 April 2024 video from the Dad Saves America Podcast, host John Papola continues his conversation with evolutionary biologists Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying, discussing what evolutionary biology can teach us about sex, gender, adulthood and religion.

With the recent explosion in transgender identification across American society, along with the censorious condemnation of any criticism within polite circles, we must reexamine the nature of human individuality and our fundamental understanding of male and female.

Bret and Heather give a thorough explanation of why biological sex evolved in the first place and how it’s actually defined scientifically. We then zoom out to see how this particular issue is just one facet of a broader cultural trend that’s undermining our ability to become true adults who are capable of leading productive, fulfilling and moral lives.

Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying on Evolution, Innovation, and Western Civilization

Evolutionary biologists Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying dive into the complexities of human evolution, the downside of rapid technological advancement and the interplay between cultural software and biological hardware.
