Figure 13.1 Mean proportions of responses showing gender sterotyped knowledge in girls and boys between 5 and 10.

As shown in Figure 13.3, boys' same-sex preferences remain slightly higher than girls' throughout the study. For boys, same-sex preferences remain generally constant from age 5 to 9 and only show a minimal increase at age 10. Girls' same-sex preference trends are also pretty flat even though they show some small fluctuations with age. In contrast to the generally flat trends in preference scores, children's opposite-sex avoidance scores exhibit more obvious changes with age (see Figure 13.4).
