CHAPTER 10: TRENDS AND UNANSWERED
QUESTIONS IN PREJUDICE RESEARCH
Prejudice based on race, gender, and age.
Why?
The three main ways we categorize another person upon perceiving them is
on the basis of their race, gender and age.
There is much more research on racism, and sexism, and ageism, than any
other types of prejudice.
Attitudes towards Overweight Persons
One reason that this is a huge issue in the US is that an individual who is
overweight violates the American ideal of self-denial and self-restraint.
Attitudes toward Lesbians and Gay Men
Research indicates that the attitudes of heterosexuals toward lesbians and
gay men depends on the gender of the respondent and the target of their
evaluation.
HM more prejudiced towards gay men
HW more prejudiced towards lesbians.
Impact of education on attitudes about homosexuality seems to have more
of an impact on HWs,
The perception of the controllability of ones sexual orientation has a large
role in heterosexuals attitudes toward lesbians and gay men.
Other studies on the origin of prejudice toward lesbians and gay men
indicate support of an authoritarian like origin, in that people who are less
accepting of gender equality tend to also be less tolerant of gay men and
lesbians.
Attitudes toward the physically challenged
Studied the LEAST
Ableism/handicapism. People with physical conditions are often the
subject of derision, fear, disgust and prejudice, stereotypes and

Prejudice against people with physical challenges appears to be learned early
in childhood.

has been called control theory, or feedback theory. Essentially this was a
