    If you were doing biological explainations of gender development what would you write
    I mean I would just talk about chromosomes and hormones, nature side, klinefelter and turners syndrome as studies, twin studies.

    I don't think I would do very well on biological theory for gender development tbh, it's one of my weakest theories

    Psychosexual stages, Little hans (castration anxiety, oedipus complex), Active and passive identification, electra complex (penis envy etc). How all these lead to gender roles.

    Evaluation: Unfalsifiable, case studies are subjective, biological approach supports developmental stage growth.

    Could compare with other approaches like the psychodynamic says gender develops in the phallic stage whereas biological approach says it develops at conception

    That's a great contrast to make, specific vocabulary could also be used to wow the examiner on first read so you are allocated to a high band. E.g. Hypothalamus, BST, SDN-POA etc - structural differences in these to relate to masculine and feminine behaviour

    I reckon it'll be Kohlberg for gender as that hasn't come up since Jan 2012 I did the cognitive last year as i'm resitting and it was awful

    Also for the key approaches biological and social learning theory hasn't come up in a while

    If it is distinguishing between two things such as sex and gender
    1 mark = definition of sex
    1 mark = definition of gender
    1 mark = difference
    Thank you
