PSYC12 Lecture 7 Experiencing Prejudice I Stigma is a characteristic whereby people are devalued in society Protective qualities of stigma: o Attributional ambiguity- when you are victim of prejudice dont know whether people say or do something because you deserved it or bc you belong to a certain group It protects people from not feeling so bad when bad things happen to them o Domain disidentification it not something i value ; selective devaluation o People engage in group comparisons, if it hurt to compare with out group you just compare with in group Moderating characteristics are things that can change the way people perceive situations, when they make attributions about whether their identity is being stigmatized or not The study on children who got to chose whether they liked black or white dolls, a recent study still found that kids liked white dolls better Mattew Sheppard(was gay) who lived in Laramie, when to a gay lounge, two guys pretended to be gay to befriend Mattew, drove really far and then beat him up, tied him up and left him...this was an example of a hate crime Stigma-a marker, a spoiled identity(less valued), discriminated against o Abominations of body- obese(people are openly negative about fat people), facial deformities o Blemishes of character that people judge(dementia, mental illness, AD, anorexia) o Tribal markers- visible indication of race, ethnicity or religion; something you cannot change Age seems to fit tribal markers the best even though the other ones make sense
