…parts amusing, suspect, and cheese

"We here at The Takeout do our best never to yuck on anyone else's yum, so this map from Hater—a dating app that pairs people up on the basis of what they dislike, brought to our attention by the fine people of Uproxx—is a bit of a sticky wicket for us. On the one hand, it's a map, people like maps, we like maps. Maps are good. On the other hand, it's a collection of "ew, gross" by state. Not our bag.

Still, this is a weird collection of things people hate, and so we have some questions. Here's the map in full…."

Um, methodology?

If I walk up to fifty people in North Dakota and ask what they hate am I really going to hear "Tapas?"

You could ask every Californian what they hate and no one is going to say "gas station wine" because none of us knew there was such a thing as gas station wine until someone put up this map.

Gas station wine?

The only reason they *can* hate it in New Jersey is that it *exists* in New Jersey.

And all this data is gathered from a dating app? A dating app where you try to prove you're cool by hating the right things? Can you say "self-selected?"

When I see "corner piece of brownie" and especially "dabbing pizza grease with a napkin" I'm starting the think the sample set was very, very small.

Cute map, but

Gas station wine unless the gas station is also a vineyard, I don't see how such a thing could even be? In NJ you have to have a liqueur license, which are generally expensive and even then hard to get.
