Abstract:

Using data provided by a panel of non-Hispanic white respondents (males=1,323 and females=1,427) examined in early adolescence and young adulthood, this study explored whether aggressive response to severe role stress is dependent upon gender identification and prior history of aggression. Logistic regression analysis yielded findings as follows: 1) Men who reported aggression during early adolescence are significantly more likely to respond to severe role stress with aggression while men who were not aggressive in adolescence do not report much increase in aggression under the similar circumstances. 2) For young women, however, role stress increases aggression only among those who did not report aggression in early adolescence. For those who reported aggression during adolescence, the effect is positive but weak. These findings are interpreted using principles of socialization, gendered role expectations, and strain perspective.

ROLE STRESS AND AGGRESSION AMONG YOUNG ADULTS: THE MODERATING INFLUENCES OF GENDER AND ADOLESCENT AGGRESSION That role strain is an antecedent to aggression has been documented in both the stress and deviance literature (Agnew 1992; Brezina 1996; Kaplan 1986). In general scholars argued that persons under severe role stress may resort to conventional and/or unconventional coping responses in order to assuage the emotional pains induced by role stress (Agnew 1992; Kaplan 1986). Use of aggression thus may constitute one
