    An amazing module called Sexual Conflict- all about the inherent battle between males and females, both in humans and in the animal kingdom.

    To top it off it was taught by an absolute legend who described animal courting in hilarious ways.

    The evolutionary theories behind the typical male and female roles. I might have to be careful because feminism. But basically in most species including humans, the evolutionary stable condition is for anisogamy to evolve from isogamy. So it's advantageous for many species (inc. humans) for one sex to develop a much smaller gamete size than the other. Hence why sperm are tiny and eggs are big.

    The consequence of this is that males invest very little in each gamete, whereas females invest heavily- only have one a month and put a lot of energy and resource into each one even if it's not fertilised. A male can also increase their 'fitness' in crude terms by having sex with multiple partners because their sperm is unlimited whereas there is a clear cap to how many children a woman can have in a given time period. This leads to men tending to 'care less' and women caring more. There is always uncertainty in paternity in men as well which can lead to less caring behaviour whereas with woman there is absolutely no uncertainty in maternity.

    But in nature the situations can vary and there are lots of interesting phenomena. Lions and harems for example and sex role reversal, where the male does all the caring and the female buggers off for more sex!!male Flies also inject a toxin into female flies to ensure that any pre-existing sperm from a previous shag is killed to ensure she can only be pregnant by him.

    At the core of it, males and females have different reproductive interests and this creates a conflict.

    Humans are a very unique example because of cultural and societal influences but can still be studied and are a very interesting case.

    as a female, this made me very sympathetic to male behaviour and certain tendencies associated with men rather than women. It's basically how they've been biologically wired to ensure our species survives and because of society and culture and expectations it's being suppressed. Of course this is a generalisation and there are exceptions but any guys reading this- I feel for you and you're not all bad

    I did a module on animal behaviour which was good and consisted of sexual conflict. Very interesting indeed

    Social psychology.

    We had the best lecturer who would do experiments on us and stuff. Including the first ever lecture where he got a stranger to pretend to be him and got us to write down our phone numbers and a password that we often use for 'the online component of the course'. Then the guy left and the real lecturer came out and read out my phone number and password to everyone It was a demonstration on the power of expectation and authority
