Abstract: Studies of differences between lesbians and heterosexual women have revealed no differences in psychological adjustment but have shown differences in personality characteristics. These differences suggest that lesbians are less likely to be bound to sex-stereotypic behavior. The hypotheses tested were whether lesbians tend to be more androgynous and cross sex-typed than heterosexual women and whether heterosexual women tend to be more sex-typed than lesbian women.
