Heterosexual College Student Sexual Experiences, Feminist Identity, and Attitudes toward LGBT Individuals
Worthen, Meredith G. F.
Journal of LGBT Youth, v9 n2 p77-113 2012
Although sexual experiences among college students have been well documented, few studies have explored how sexual activity may be related to attitudes concerning sex and sexuality. Limited research suggests there may be an important relationship between sexual experiences, feminist self-identification, and supportive attitudes toward lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) individuals. Using a college sample of heterosexual students (n = 735) from a large southern university, this article explores sexual activity, feminism, and perspectives toward LGBT individuals. Overall, results suggest that measures of sexual experience are unrelated to attitudes toward LGBT individuals, unless coupled with feminist ideology. (Contains 4 tables.)
