Abstract

This research is a quantitative survey study conducted to measure social distance and prejudice of Diponegoro University students in intimate relationships, in the contexts of friendship and marriage towards those who come from disability groups. This study involved 415 students, with simple random sampling technique, from 31,481 active students of Diponegoro University in 2019. They consist of 283 women and 132 men. The results of this study is that there is significant differences between men and women when it comes to intimated relationships towards disability group, in contexts of marriage. In terms of friendships, there is no differentiation between men and women, both of gender has no social distance with disability group. The study also found that the percentage of women higher than men refers to unwillingness marriage with persons who has disability. The main argumentation is that because men in patriarchal culture (like in Indonesia) are expected to be the head of the family. The rejection to get married to someone with disability indicates about social prejudice in the form of discrimination.
