Opposition to same sex marriage
A UCLA psychology study published online today in the journal Psychological Science concludes that many people believe gay men and women are more sexually promiscuous than heterosexuals, which they may fear could threaten their own marriages and their way of life. Such people often marry at a younger age, have more children and believe in traditional gender roles in which men are the breadwinners and women are housewives. People who feel their way of life is most threatened by sexual promiscuity tend to be socially conservative and strongly believe in traditional gender roles. The researchers surveyed men and women, 27 percent of whom oppose same-sex marriage. Next, researchers asked people the extent to which they agree or disagree with statements such as:.
