Researchers at USC are reporting that men are more likely to "tolerate" prejudice than women are. Law professor Edward J. McCaffery conducted a phone survey of over 3,300 folks, and found that while men are more tolerant of prejudice, both men and women are intolerant of prejudice against the "genetically disadvantaged" — except when it comes to attractiveness. "Discrimination in its traditional forms — based on race and gender — may be receding somewhat, discrimination in other domains, as based on appearance, persists," McCaffery said in a statement.
