It doesn’t line up as much on the east side, though, so take that with a grain of salt. Every time I talk about race, just refer to this incredible map that I didn’t make. I know about the West Coast, so I’m going to need your help with my analysis.We can zoom out a bit further to include the Bay in its complete glory: I don’t know what to say except the Bay Area is full of single men. Comment below, email or tweet at me to let me know your incredibly astute (I’m certain of it! What I lack in modern-day knowledge, though, I made up for in old maps.Playing around with the age ranges for the Bay Area, I set it to 50-64 and found a map that just plain made me giggle.Jonathan Soma is a Brooklyn based data wrangler who teaches everything from Thai cooking to the Loch Ness monster at the Brooklyn Brainery and runs a data code narrative program at Columbia’s Journalism School.Note: This is all fiercely heteronormative, and I’m sorry about that, but such is the data bestowed by the US Census Bureau.If you’d like to see a hilarious side effect of this, scroll down to the last image. Very much the opposite of what we found about New York, where the core of Manhattan was primarily single women.
The same goes for a man as the penetrative party in a botty bonanza.
SF’s Chinatown, which the racial dot map and Wikipedia point to as to the upper right of the word “San Francisco,” is actually far more gender-neutral than similar immigrant communities we found in NYC. Right over the bay, Oakland mixes it up a bit while Berkeley is a nice little gender melting pot.
Again, race might play an issue here – last time we found that African-American communities seemed to have a higher percentage of single women, and the splits might be helped along by racial divides (Oakland [female] is more black, while Alameda [male] is more white/Asian). Sunnyvale, San Jose and Mountain View come up about even between single men and single women, while San Mateo is piles upon piles of single men and Fremont looks as blue as a perfect day at the seashore.
It also allows girls to explore their sexuality while assigning particular significance to their ‘official’ first time.
This was the case with Laura, 23, who says: “It was important to me that I lost my virginity to someone I loved.
Additionally, “single” according to the Census means anyone who isn’t married, so even long-term relationships don’t come into the picture at all. It’s singles by age and zip code in the SF Bay Area. And yes, this map doesn’t account for sexuality at all, so there are plenty of men in those blue zones with zero interest in women.
