Abstract of the thesis
Existing questionnaires usually measure gender role attitudes on a continuum between traditional and egalitarian attitudes. Based on a content analysis of eleven existing questionnaires, we developed the Traditional-Antitraditional Gender Role Attitudes Scale (TAGRAS) to extend this continuum to antitraditional attitudes – a preference for women showing male-typed and men showing female-typed behavior. Two studies with adolescents and one study with adults confirmed that antitraditional attitudes exist.
All items are loaded on one factor and the TAGRAS has acceptable internal consistency and retest reliability. Convergent validity was demonstrated by showing that men have more traditional attitudes than women and that right-wing political attitudes, social dominance orientation and religious fundamentalism were positively related to traditional attitudes, whereas acceptance of gender-fair language, motivation to act without prejudice, and education level were negatively related to them.
Further, the TAGRAS was able to predict explicit and implicit attitudes to lesbians and gays as well as (peer-reported) discriminatory behavior towards lesbians, gays, and gender non-conforming individuals. Implicit attitudes to heterosexuals were not predicted, which is evidence for the TAGRAS’s discriminant validity. In the discussion, we suggest future research making use of the fact that the TAGRAS assesses a broader range of gender role attitudes than existing questionnaires.
