Predictors of Homophobia in Female College Students.
Basow, Susan A.; Johnson, Kelly
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v42 n5-6 p391-404 Mar 2000
Investigated how self-esteem, self-discrepancy, and gender-attribute importance related to homophobia in predominantly white college women, noting sex role attitudes, authoritarian attitudes, and extent of contact with homosexuals. The only significant predictor of homophobia was authoritarian attitudes. Other correlations included belief in sex role egalitarianism, degree of contact with homosexuals, and importance of feminine attributes to participants' femininity. (SM)
