<p>Past research describes how race and gender overlap to produce intersectional invisibility, with Black women and Asian men deemed less prototypical compared to Black men and Asian women (Johnson, Freeman, & Pauker, 2012). Indeed, Schug, Alt and Klauer (2015) found that when asked to write a story, participants were more likely to use a male pronoun when writing about a Black person, and more likely to use a female pronoun when writing about an Asian person. Yet, little is known regarding the gender prototype for category labels describing Latinx people. To examine this, participants were randomly assigned to write a story about a person labeled as—White, Latinx, Latino, Latino/a, Hispanic, or no category label provided—and we coded gender pronoun use from the story (i.e., he/she/they). Given androcentrism, we hypothesized that participants would utilize male pronouns more than chance across all categories, however we anticipated that this bias would be mitigated for the term Latinx (Vidal-Ortiz & Martinez, 2018). This research provides novel insights into gender and race intersections for Latinx individuals and the impact of category labels on ascribing gender.</p>
