Contrary to what many people assume, pro-female and anti-male biases are more influential than race and other factors in Implicit Association Tests according to a study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology

New research provides evidence that people generally have a positive implicit bias towards women and a negative implicit bias towards men, as well as a similar but less consistent implicit bias in favor of people from higher social classes. But the new research, which examined data from nearly 6,000 individuals, found inconsistent evidence for implicit biases based on race.

Unfortunately, bias has been one of those issues where politics wins out over facts. As I have often argued, the fact that our political and industry leadership is heavily skewed to men is an objective measure of discrimination against women. But it is also true the fact that our military and civilian workplace deaths and injuries happen mostly to men is an objective measure of discrimination against men. Both are true. We need to resolve both or we will not have equality.
