This study examines attitudes people hold and outcomes they associate with childhood gender nonconformity. Participants were 646 undergraduates from introductory psychology courses who responded to online questionnaires. Participants were presented with one of 10 vignettes with a child target character (male or female) that varied in interests and behaviors from strongly masculine to moderately masculine, neutral, moderately feminine, or strongly feminine.
