Using Self-Other Differences to Predict College Men's Willingness to Intervene: Assessing the Moderating Effect of Masculine Gender Role Stress
by Rice, Frederick, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2017, 59; 10690454
Abstract (Summary)

This thesis examined the extent to which rape-supportive attitudinal self-other differences (SODs) predicted college men’s willingness to intervene as bystanders in potential situations of rape and sexual assault. The study also assessed the extent to which masculine gender role stress (MGRS) moderated this relationship. The online survey study included 33 undergraduate male students at a large state-sponsored university in southern California. Participants were asked for their attitudes and beliefs about masculinity, rape, and sexual assault, as well as the degree to which they would be willing to intervene against rape and sexual assault. Additionally, the survey asked participants how supportive of rape they thought to be the average male student on their campus. Results from OLS regression indicated that rape-supportive attitudinal SODs significantly predicted participants’ reported willingness to intervene, such that those with higher SODs reported lower willingness. Results from hierarchical linear regression indicated that MGRS had no moderating effect.
