Sažetak
Abstract In today's society there is a prevalent heteronormative monogamous norm within romantic relationships. Gay relationships are perceived as more promiscuous and less committed than heterosexual relationships. Similarly, non-monogamous, compared to monogamous relationships, are perceived to be less close, less intimate and less trusting. Following the infra-humanization perspective, this study examined a possible mechanism underlying these perceptions. Specifically, we tested if sexual orientation and monogamy play a role in couples' infra-humanization such that gay (vs. straight) and non-monogamous (vs. monogamous) couples are seen as less human. In a cross-cultural study, we asked a sample of heterosexual young adults (N = 599, 464 women ; Mage = 25.83, SD = 7.88) in Portugal (n = 177), Italy (n = 115) and Croatia (n = 307) to attribute primary and secondary positive emotions to four groups: (a) heterosexual couple in a committed and sexually monogamous romantic relationship, (b) heterosexual couple in a committed and sexually non-monogamous romantic relationship, (c) gay couple in a committed and sexually monogamous romantic relationship, (b) gay couple in a committed and sexually non-monogamous romantic relationship. Results showed only a "type of relationship" x "emotion" interaction, suggesting an infra-humanization effect. Secondary emotions were attributed more to monogamous (vs. non-monogamous) couples, whereas primary emotions were equally associated with both types of couples. No differences in attributions of primary and secondary emotions were found between gay and straight couples. Similar patterns were found across all countries. We argue that there is greater infra-humanization towards non-monogamous relationships than towards gay couples. Method This cross-cultural study was quasi-experimental with four targets. Data was collected in three countries (Portugal, Italy and Croatia) via self-report web survey with heterosexual young adults. A snow-ball technique was used to recruit participants in each country. Demographics are similar across countries. We used a mixed within between-subjects design to analyze data. The dependent measure included three positive primary emotions (lust, desire, pleasure) and three positive secondary emotions (happiness, compassion, love ; Paladino et al., 2002).
