    I have attached the relevant output of the results from SPSS.

    Based on the results, is the following correct?

    The results of a Chi-Square test revealed a significant association between social group and message attitude (Chi-Square = 7.27, df = 1, p = .007). Social group is significantly and moderately (Phi value =-.223) associated with message attitude, i.e. heterosexual females tend to show more pity as opposed to disgust towards homosexual males in their message posts compared to heterosexual males.

    Have I interpreted it correctly?

    I don't really know how to interpret the Phi value when the value is negative.
