    Yeah that!

    Oh thank God! I'm praying for evolutionary, but I've a feeling it's cross cultural.
    I really hope the questions are good... January's paper (or at least, the marking) was ridiculous and I NEED my C

    I don't have much, but here you are:

    Gender dysphoria
    - biologically one gender, psychologically the other. May feel they're 'trapped' in wrong body.
    - e.g. boys might want to wear female clothes and have a baby.

    - could be caused by parental psychiatric problems or absent fathers?
    - REKERS and KILGUS (1997) studied families of those with GD and found that 80& had mothers with mental health problems; 45% had fathers with mental health problems; 37% had absent fathers or no male role model.

    - not all children with absent fathers/parental mental health problems develop GD. Must be other explanations.
    - possible cause/effect - stress of child with GD causes mental health problems in parents?


    Cross cultural
    - WHITING and EDWARDS (88) looked at USA, Mexico, Japan, India, Kenya, Phillipines.
    - found similarities to Western stereotypes, clear differences between male/female behaviour, e.g. girls looked after siblings & domestic work, boys looked after animals, etc.













    ....Doing this made me realise I have awful notes. Oh dear.

    for relationships can someone pleaseeeee outline the sexual selection strategies and the human reproductive behaviour as i really think this is going to come up and still don't know it
    Strategies?

    Sexual selection: certain characteristics passed down through evolution that have no survival purpose but aid in attracting members of the opposite sex like the peacock and its feathers or ron jeremy and his penis.

    Types of Sexual Selection:

    -Intrasexual selection: Members of same sex fight for right to mate with other sex
    -Intersexual: member of one sex chooses partner on basis of preference.

    Origins of mate choice apparently were formed in this magical time of the EEA which is just a lazy way of evolutionists of creating a half assed theory with little elaboration, and its good to be picky because the partner you get lumbered with will provide half of your offsprings genes.

    **** like Neophilia, facial characteristics etc etc are all indicators of health and **** and so are examples of sexual preferences. You have that study by Buss which highlighted the universal characteristics of many preferences in many cultures though the sampling methods varied greatly.

    Mating Differences: Men like to get their end away a lot because the more women we impregnate the higher our reproductive success is (really? think of all the child maintenance we would have to pay) where as for women, they have to invest a lot of energy in carrying the child, rearing the child and then have to go through the **** storm that is weaning so it is a lot more of investment for them. Clarke and Hatfields study where some guy went around uni asking the women to sleep with him and vica versa showed that men are a lot more willing to sleep with whoever than women are, link to idea that they are more choosy to mates.

    I think that they won't give us a 25 marker on nature of sleep, mainly because there isn't anywhere nearly as much evaluation as we need. So a question that could come up in my opinion is something like 'outline the nature of sleep' for few A01 marks, and you would write about different stages and difference between SWS and REM, and then give us something on factors influencing insomnia for couple A01 and the rest of A02/3 marks. Some people think they might do that, but make the second part on disrupting bio rhythms...

    what else can i say for the breakdown of relationships other than duck's model?? we have only done one....and im so screwed if a 25 marker comes up on it!
    You can also refer to Walster et al's equity theory.

    He claims, the equity theory suggests indivduals in a romantic relationship expect rewards proportional to what they give to their partner. If there are any imbalances, the partners may discuss this and accept the situation. However, a inequitable relationship causes distress especially for the disadvantaged person, therefore the person at the disadvantage will be motivated to restore the balance, however if all else fails, it may result in the dissolution of the relationship.

    Evaluation: this theory is more plausible than theories such as the social exchange theory, as it does not only take account of the individual, but the partner aswel. This theory can be applied to friendships as well as relationships unlike the social exchange theory, however, it mainly applies to romantic relationships as they are exclusive in a way friendships are not. However, it still assumes individual's are fundamentally selfish although researchers like to believe those in a relationship are concerned with an equitable distribution of rewards and costs for both their partner and themselves.Furthermore, this theory is reductionist as it reduces maintenance/breakdown on the basis of equity and ignores diverse and complex reasons (i.e. partner develops terminal illness).

    As long as you always refer back to the 'breakdown' of a relationship, this will earn you good marks!
