Lakkis, Jacqueline; Ricciardelli, Lina A.; Williams, Robert J.
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v41 n1/2 p1-16 Jul 1999
Examined the role of sexual orientation and gender-related personality traits in disordered eating attitudes and behavior in Australia. Self-report measures of homosexual and heterosexual males and females indicated that both sexual orientation and gender traits affected disordered eating in men and women. For both genders, irrespective of sexual orientation, higher scores on negative femininity predicted higher levels of disordered eating. (SM)
