Abstract

Overweight people in society face a number of obstacles. Negative attitudes toward overweight people contribute to this experience. This study examined the relationship of antifat attitudes to other prejudicial attitudes (e.g., racism, sexism, homophobia) and gender-related attitudes. A total of 179 undergraduate participants completed measures of prejudicial attitudes, including antifat attitudes. Multiple regression analyses revealed that a combination of demographic and attitudinal variables predicted antifat attitudes. Antifat attitudes are stronger for men, Caucasians, and gender-typed individuals; compared to women, African Americans, and androgynous individuals, respectively. After controlling for demographics, weight-related variables, and social desirability, gender-role egalitarianism, racism, and homophobia significantly correlated with antifat attitudes. The implications andlimitations of this study are discussed regarding the importance of research in antifat and other prejudical attitudes.
