On sex bias measures, children (grades 2-10) assigned more desirable traits to their own sex and more undesirable traits to the opposite sex. Both sexes became less positive toward their own sex with increasing age. Availability of "both sexes" option decreased stereotyping, especially in girls. (Author/CMG)
