    This is interesting and important but the unfortunate impression that it leaves is that this work is not worth doing. One can easily start formulating hypotheses about why the equity-seeking groups mentioned above don’t want to engage about it. Maybe because it’s hard work and puts the focus on them in a way they would rather avoid. Given a different approach they might feel differently. Likewise, maybe the males in the first experiment whose results because “negative” were furious that they were being forced to think about something that makes them feel some kind of guilt, which maybe they need to get over. , or maybe the approach needs to be changed. Hope this helps.
