Icon220 This is the most sexist place in America.

If you want to move to the least sexist state in America, then head to New Hampshire, according to an index of sexist attitudes developed by economists at the University of Chicago, Northwestern University and National University Singapore.

Alternatively, they found the most sexist state to be Arkansas.

What’s more, they found that state-level distinctions can have significant impacts on women’s lives, including her wages and the age at which she marries and has children — and can even make her later earnings lower, even if she moves to a place with less sexism.

D'oh!

I thought it said "most sexiest", and didn't realize my mistake until I hit the word "Arkansas".

The inhabitant of that address has to split time between being sexist, racist, and just plain stupid so the sustained amount of sexism is lower than otherwise would be the case.

Ah, but you are forgetting about interesectionality. He can be sexist and racist (and, of course stupid) at the same time.

Yeah, but then the sexism (or racism or stupidity) is only the root mean square of what the peak value could be.
