Women who date sexist men often become sexist themselves

STUDY: Women who date sexist men often become sexist themselves claim psychologists (but men are immune to a woman’s beliefs). As Takimag comments:

A study at the University of Illinois has reached the troubling, disturbing, problematic, and utterly unacceptable conclusion that women who date “sexist” men run the deadly risk of contracting the sexism virus themselves. Purporting to be scientific, the study divided “sexism” into two arbitrary categories—“hostile” (where gangs of frat boys high-five one another while gang-raping women in dark rooms covered in broken glass) and “benevolent” (where men are nice to women and get accused of being sexist anyway). …

[T]he study reveals the foul truth that unsuspecting ladies who fall prey to the seductive wiles of benevolent sexists also become afflicted with the delusion that they are actually happier than they were as single, empowered, independent, man-hating, multiple-cat-owning feminists.
