Apropos the post from a couple of days back, here is an interesting map.
(Do you like maps? I like maps.)
This 1870 “Map of Predominating Sex”, based on US census data, is like 150-year-old social analytics.
The darker the shaded area, the greater the disparity between the reported male and female populations of a given area.
In other words, in 1870, many self-described male Americans were:
1) Going without sex
2) Having sex with other men
3) Sharing women (including sex workers)
4) Taking partners from unenumerated population groups (such as slaves and indigenous women)
