|Abstract: ||This study investigated whether perceptions
of guilt for both male and female suspects
co-varied with masculine physical appearance.
In addition, the study tested whether the
relationship between masculine physical
appearance and perceptions of guilt was
dependent upon whether the crime is
stereotypically male perpetrated. Participants read one of three crime scenarios (burglary, child abuse and neglect,
fraud and forgery) and evaluated the likelihood that suspects of varying masculine
appearance committed the crime in question.
Masculine physical appearance significantly
affected guilt ratings across all crime types
for both male and female suspects. Additionally, guilt ratings for male compared
to female suspects were
higher for burglary, a crime that was viewed
as stereotypically male perpetrated by research participants. The results are discussed in relation to applied implications
and future research directions.|
