Gender Identity-Related Reactions to Sex-Typed and Unisex Labeled Products
Two experiments highlight gender identity’s relevance to the gender labeling-purchase intention relationship. Gender schematic consumers are indifferent between sex-typed or unisex labeling. Product’s gender expressiveness and functionality oppositely favor both options. In favor of unisex products, gender aschematics are less sensitive to gender cues, making perceived functionality the relevant mechanism.
