Men’s Acquaintance Rape Scripts: A Comparison Between a Regional University and a Military Academy

Men’s Acquaintance Rape Scripts: A Comparison Between a Regional University and a Military Academy Men’s acquaintance rape scripts were investigated to determine if background experiences impacted the type of script elicited. Men were selected from either a regional public university (n = 147) or a military academy (n = 283) to represent broad general background experiences. Overall, similarities in the five types of scripts elicited were evident, which are reflective of the cultural components that underlie men’s expectations of what occurs in these situations. The influence of background experiences was noted in differences in both the frequency with which scripts were reported as well as the individual content of each script. Modeling analyses uncovered the latent structure for these differences. Suggestions for possible explanations for these differences, such as the role of traditional gender role attitudes, are discussed. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Sex Roles Springer Journals

Abstract

Men’s acquaintance rape scripts were investigated to determine if background experiences impacted the type of script elicited. Men were selected from either a regional public university (n = 147) or a military academy (n = 283) to represent broad general background experiences. Overall, similarities in the five types of scripts elicited were evident, which are reflective of the cultural components that underlie men’s expectations of what occurs in these situations. The influence of background experiences was noted in differences in both the frequency with which scripts were reported as well as the individual content of each script. Modeling analyses uncovered the latent structure for these differences. Suggestions for possible explanations for these differences, such as the role of traditional gender role attitudes, are discussed.
