Same-Sex Imitation: The Avoidance of Cross-Sex Models or the Acceptance of Same-Sex Models?
Bussey, Kay; Perry, David G.
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v8 n7 p773-84 Jul 1982
After observing peer models display preferences toward various objects (subsequently sex-typed by experimenters), third and fourth graders registered their own preferences. Both boys and girls preferred same-sex objects to opposite-sex objects; but unlike boys, girls did not give lower priority to opposite-sex objects than to neutral ones. (Author/GC)
