Jun 13 - Persistent Stereotypes Falsely Link Women’s Self-Esteem to Their s*x Lives
 

 

Summary: Despite increases in gender equality and the normalization of casual s*x in many cultures, the belief that women who engage in casual s*x have low self-esteem remains widespread.

New research examines this entrenched stereotype and finds no significant correlation between a woman’s s*xual behavior and her self-esteem.

New research published in the journal Psychological Science reveals a pervasive but unfounded stereotype: that women (but not men) who engage in casual s*x have low self-esteem.

This finding was consistent across six separate experiments with nearly 1,500 total participants.

“We were surprised that this stereotype was so widely held,” said Jaimie Arona Krems, an a*sistant professor of psychology at Oklahoma State University and first author on the paper.

“This stereotype was held by both women and men, liberals and conservatives, and across the spectrum in terms of people’s levels of religiosity and s*xism.”

But across the studies, Krems also observed that the stereotype was unfounded: There was virtually no relationship between participants’ own self-esteem and s*xual behavior.

In one study, Krems and her colleagues had participants read about a hypothetical man, woman, or unspecified person in their mid-20s who had casual s*x (e.g., one-night stands), monogamous s*x, or no reported s*xual behavior.

Participants were then asked to make some snap judgments about this individual’s personality based on this information.

Women who had casual s*x were judged as having lower self-esteem.

Participants did not connect men’s self-esteem to their s*xual behavior, however.

In another experiment, the researchers used a method called the conjunction fallacy, which was made famous by Nobel Prize-winning psychologist Daniel Kahneman in now classic research from the 1980s.

In this experiment, participants were asked if a man or a woman who had casual s*x was more likely to have been (a) an English major or (b) an English major with low self-esteem.

Most participants responded that the second of these two possibilities was more likely even though it was statistically less likely to be true.

The team also discovered that this stereotype persisted even when participants were confronted with contrary information.

“When we explicitly told participants that the women who had casual s*x were enjoying it and were satisfied with their s*xual behavior, participants still stereotyped them as having lower self-esteem than women in monogamous relationships who were unsatisfied with their s*xual behavior,” said Krems.

Previous research has suggested that people perceived to have low self-esteem are less likely to be hired for jobs, voted into political office, or sought as friends or romantic partners.

“Although not grounded in reality, the stereotype documented in this work may have harmful effects. Stereotypes like this can have serious consequences in the real world,” said Krems.

You can have a man with pretty much all his needs met, if he isn’t getting s*x or female attention he will be depressed

my ex just emailed me recently, she has been with a guy for the past 8 years

no kids, no marriage, she bought her own engagement ring, but now she is giving up on the relationship because she is realizing ALL wedding expenses will be on her because he just doesn't care.. he is already smashing so why should he care about marriage

if you think she has high self esteem then you need a reality check

she is now 37

she didn't get herself in this predicament through high self esteem

That’s messed up.
Was she trying to use you as an emotional tampon to get some sympathy?

where did this "study" disprove that thought process. all I see here is that they asked 1500 ppl about a hypothetical person and recorded their responses.

I thought they were going to say they did something to actually disprove the self esteem connection.

if you've really been around an actual pass around, they usually do have low self esteem and daddy and/or mother issues.

where did you provide a better method?

how else do you gauge the toxic stereotypes you guys perpetuate?

it showed that people like you make determinations about others with virtually no evidence or data and an erroneous tradition of using a preprogrammed set of values to judge others based on rumor and hearsay

when you think your little world represents the whole world and your little experience is a reason to paint an entire gender as a monolith that needs to be controlled and leashed

your 1950s viewpoint took you straight from reading casual s*x to calling any woman who has unapproved s*x a pass around, casual s*x doesn't mean you fu*k every single person you can as fast as you can, it means you have s*x when you want to, with who you want to

casual s*x means i'm attracted to someone who's attracted to me and we decide to have some free fun without checking in with the local slaveowner courtship customs and requirements

there's plenty of smart, healthy, talented, grounded females who like s*x and aren't bound by racist baby boomer traditions and bigoted slaveowner spirituality that seeks to treat women like dogs who must obey and submit to clergy approved, nonconsensual s*x

you just don't have access to them

because they're hiding from people like you and your pious corrupt judgement

this is entirely too many words to say you have no legitimate counterpoint to anything I said.

Just your feelings.

Sounds like your ex is stuck on marriage and not on having a loving relationship.

The dude has been with her for 8 years and she’s throwing it all away because of a legal procedure

And then emailed you about it

bi*ch is retarded. Social media era tho.

This is what happens when men are raised by their moms so they let women lead. I came up hard as fu*k but im thankful I had OGs because alot of n*ggas is grown women.

What yall dont realize these same women that made yall believe they were so confident and had so much self esteem are scared to death to be alone, low self esteem and won't ever take accountability because they will be forced to see their ugly ways in the mirror.


Most women are to be fu*ked and given instruction. Nowadays you can't even trust them to raise your kids properly so now men gotta be Mr. Mom

u could say that, but i agree with her

the guy isn't leading her anywhere.. definitely not leading her to God, not leading her to children, not leading her to marriage, not even leading her to a career because she works at the same place she worked when we were together back in the 00's (victoria's secret)

she is just his wh*re

to me she is like a female simp.. she has given everything and gotten nothing

a good man will lead.. this is not leadership this is: "just do what i want u to do and that's it"

but i feel like women don't really know the difference until its too late

If she’s worth “all of this” why didn’t you do this?

You putting your own idea of “leadership” on to this man and his relationship. Maybe he don’t want kids or marriage, maybe he wants a companion that is in the same mindset.

She’s been there for 8 years. She’s running to you to complain.

Sounds like she sees you as a simp too
