Abstract

The present research explored the connection between eating attitudes, eating behaviors, and gender expression. There have been few studies examining the connection between eating attitudes, eating behaviors, and gender expression, especially among young adults in university. Participants were recruited from Washington State universities through their wellness centers. Participants were 18 years and older and came from a variety of backgrounds, including cisgender, transgender, and non-binary individuals. Participants completed an online survey through Qualtrics. This survey included demographic questions of age, gender, ethnicity, and education; the Eating Attitudes Test-26, a 26 item self-report questionnaire where participants answered questions regarding their eating attitudes and behaviors; and the Personal Attributes Questionnaire, a 24 item self-report questionnaire where participants answered questions regarding their gender expression. Data collection is completed. However, data analysis is in progress and will be complete by the SOURCE presentation. Conclusions will be drawn based on data analysis and shared at SOURCE.
