Ratings of Gender Appropriateness of Sports Participation: Effects of Gender-Based Schematic Processing.
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v33 n7-8 p543-57 Oct 1995
Examined the effect of gender on the ratings of sports as appropriate for male and female participation, respectively. Results from 104 women and 103 men (96.6% white) show that men, especially sex-typed men, were inclined to stereotype sports as masculine or feminine. Possible explanations include early childhood socialization and engaging in gender-based schematic processing. (GR)
