Mitchell, Robert W.; Phipps, Billy R.; Voignier, Delight; Henson, Cheryl; Ellis, Alan L.
Journal of Humanistic Counseling, Education and Development, v40 n1 p74-81 Spr 2001
Examines how attributions of gender are influenced by whether a person self-labels, labels another, or is labeled by another as gay or lesbian. Labeling heightened the labeler's gender-typical attributions and being labeled produced the reverse pattern. Gay self-labeling resulted in intermediate ratings, whereas lesbian self-labeling dramatically increased femininity. (Contains 22 references.) (GCP)
