Do Parents Discriminate against Their Heavyweight Daughters?
Crandall, Christian S.
Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, v21 n7 p724-35 Jul 1995
Attempts to support the parental prejudice hypothesis by having students report on their parents' attitudes. Results from two studies indicate that heavyweight women were more likely to pay their own way through college, irrespective of their parents' income. The selection bias against fat women was strongest for daughters of political conservatives. (RJM)
