Hello,

You are invited to participate in our study: Psychometrics of Femininity and Masculinity Study

The goal of this study is to investigate the relationships among a variety of attitudes and how they influence one another.

Participants must be 18 years of age or older to take the survey. Participation is completely voluntary and all responses will be kept anonymous (i.e., we will not ask for any identifiable information so no one will know how you responded). This survey will take approximately 60 minutes to complete – you can skip items or quit at any time. The survey will contain questions regarding demographics, and various attitudes about femininity and masculinity. Your responses to the survey would be very useful and greatly appreciated.

If you would like to participate in this survey please follow the link below:
