We propose that men scoring higher in precarious manhood beliefs (PMB) express amusement with sexist and anti-gay humor (but not other forms of humor) in response to masculinity threat in order to reaffirm their masculinity. Accordingly, Experiment 1 (166 heterosexual men in the United States recruited through Amazon.com’s Mechanical Turk) supporte...

In all three experiments, participants imagined they were about to take a stressful math test. In Experiment 1 participants who engaged in self-enhancing humor while anticipating taking the test...
Two studies investigated the functions of sexist and anti-gay humor for men high in precarious manhood beliefs (PMB). In Study 1, when men experienced a masculinity threat, there was a significant relationship between PMB and favorability ratings of sexist jokes (r= .44, p = .010) and anti-gay jokes (r = .41, p = .018) but not with anti-Muslim or neutral jokes (r = .13, p = .474, r = .25, p = .17 respectively). In the absence of masculinity threat, PMB did not relate to ratings of sexist and anti-gay jokes. In Study 2, following masculinity threat, PMB related to men’s sense of restored masculinity when they rated sexist jokes (r = .49, p = .002), but not when they rated anti-Muslim (r = -.20, p = .25) or neutral jokes (r = -.04, p = .81).
