Social exclusion frustrates this need and has devastating psychological effects. The current research examines the relationship between social exclusion and the experience of dehumanization from the target’s perspective. When people were ostracized they judged themselves and those who ostracized them as less human (Studies 1 and 2), and believed they were viewed as less human by the perpetrators (Study 2). In both studies, essential ‘human nature’ was the dimension of humanness most sensitive to social exclusion.

Bennetts, Leslie, The John Next Door, Article for Newsweek; 7/25/2011, Vol. 158 Issue 4, p60-63, 4p, (Academic Search Premier)  Abstract: The article examines “johns,” men who purchase sex, in light of nonprofit organization Prostitution Research and Education’s study “Comparing Sex Buyers With Men Who Don’t Buy Sex.” According to clinical psychologist Melissa Farley, sex buyers frequently dehumanize women and are more aggressive towards them. Also included is a discussion of laws regarding prostitution, including initiatives to target sex buyers and an overview of laws which legalize prostitution or make sex buying a crime.
