    I think you're meant to talk about Money et als biosocial theory and Eagly and woods theory (you may have different)

    Then regarding gender dysphoria I saw on a past markscheme for this question you can use gender dysphoria :-)

    As in Wood and Eagleys social role theory?
    So I can talk about both then?

    Hey, as far as I see it, the whole Money/ Eagley biosocial approach is how you would respond to a question like "Describe the biosocial approach to gender" and then you can use gender dysphoria as an answer to a question about research and evidence for it. Hope that makes sense!
    Ohhhhhhh so use gender dysphoria for the AO2 of the biosocial approach?

    Any theory that combines biological and social factors is fine, so Eagley & Wood is fine

    For biosocial, you can do Eagly & Wood, Money and Ehrhardt, or gender dysphoria. BUT, to do gender dysphoria you've gotta be more careful about how you present it in terms of the interaction between biology and social influence, rather than just talking about GD as you would for its own question.

    To save myself from getting confused between how I'd do GD for biosicial and how I'd do GD for its own question, I'd just stick to doing Eagly and Wood or Money and Ehrhardt for biosocial.

    Eagly and Wood, I think, is easier than Money and Ehrhardt because it's a lot more specific. Money and Ehrhardt's is a bit more broad and vague, so it's risky in case you end up saying stuff that isn't creditworthy, though I have barely looked at it and have chosen to stick with describing and evaluating Eagly and Wood's social role theory.

    Yeah! Because there's evidence that social factors and biological factors both contribute to gender dysphoria so it's therefore used as evidence for the biosocial approach

    Probably one question, if asked separately you would probably use the same content but just emphasise the 'role of' more

    I was just thinking the same thing and I think I'd be inclined to cut out the stuff on intra and inter sexual selection and just talk about short and long-term mating preferences.

    Also, what A02 is relevant for inter and intra sexual selection as I don't seem to have any in my notes

    yeah! my 24 marker is so long and i have a feeling the relationships question will be split this year so i need to have a plan for a 12 marker

    I've got Buss for my AO2 for intersexual selection and I've got Miller, Penton-Voak etc
