Comment on “Reexamining individual differences in women’s rape avoidance”, by Snyder and Fessler (2012).
William F. McKibbin and Todd K. Shackelford
Recently, Snyder and Fessler (in press) published in Archives of Sexual Behavior an article entitled “Reexamining individual differences in women’s rape avoidance”. This article was written in response to an article we published in Archives of Sexual Behavior (McKibbin, Shackelford, Miner, Bates, & Liddle, 2011). Snyder and Fessler (hereafter referred to as S&F)
criticized our work on both theoretical and empirical grounds. We thank these authors for their interest in our work. In this letter, we address their criticisms and problems associated with each criticism.
