My personal theory about cows is that they are the product of a weird concoction of poverty and subcultures that enable deviant behavior.

Here are my two case studies:

I don't think its surprising that we see these places as the center of weird ass cults (Jonestown in Cali, Waco in Texas) and dumb trends like anti-vax. These places are blast furnaces for exceptionalism.

I have a hard time listing cows from the east coast, midwest and prairies and I don't think that can be chalked up to population density.
Shit I think you're right on the money for North American cows. I actually thought up a bunch of examples I thought were midwestern because they had neutral accents but it turns out they well all Southern. This includes a good chunk of TGWTG and a few furries I remember from back in the day.

I'd replace west coast with "megacities" since there is a lot of that in some big East Coast cities as well. I've been to NYC before and the "rich as hell but masses of poor people" could describe that city to the T as well.

I've noticed a lot of furry cows in rural areas and whatnot tend to view these big cities and especially the west coast as a sort of Mecca for furries (and especially troon furries). It's why whenever they make gofundmes to run away/move out of their parents it's always to a megacity in the west coast.

Anyone who's seen the famous furry kicked out of Canada video knows the reason that furry got ejected from Canada wasn't because he had furry porn on his laptop, but because he was going to Canada on a one way ticket to live in an expensive city without money or a job. The customs people knew he was setting himself up for trouble.

Britain is an lolcow country and as such should appear as a single, uniform map marker.
The United Kingdom basically has the same situation as the USA.

The Midlands, North and Scotland have crippling poverty, lots of small economically destroyed towns and free internet. People join weird ass communities like the bronies, furries and esoteric cults as a result of them spending too much time on the internet and going down some rabbit hole.

Common traits:
-Horrifying addictions to traditional fatty foods and "crisps"
-Literally cannot cook for some reason
-Welfare fraud
-Socially conservative but takes pride in social programs
-Actually racist
-Lives with family
-Prone to incredible rage
-Never learns
-Likes to launch moral crusades against things
-Attempting to rise up through some kind of profession (Journalism via the Conservative rag papers or infowars, bureaucracy, social activism, politics)


People don't know this but most of the UK is actually poorer the deep south, yes, even poorer than Mississippi. This is because of purchasing power. The poorest US states have cheaper products and property while in the UK, people usually have to burn through their money on food and rent.
The metropolitan area of London has the same conditions as the west coast of the USA. The whole place is a deviant subculture as a point of pride. Its rich as hell but the masses of people are poor because they're either immigrants or people with delusions of grandeur that decide to spend a exceptional amount on rent and garbage.

Common traits:
-Deep into the identity politics game
-Delusions of grandeur
-Attempting to rise up through some kind of profession (Journalism via the BBC, bureaucracy, social activism, politics)
-Always belong to a larger group (Rat king)
-View themselves as better than professionals at most things
-Want to look like they're fighting for some cause
-Unhygienic due to either trooning out or being a hippy
-Has a blog
-Famous for being crazy - usually originally famous some political nonsense

London is the premier core city of the world. It embodies the neoliberal dream of a transient billionaire class ruling over replaceable masses who will sell out their own interests to appear virtuous.
The entirety of the country is basically the worst of the USA without any of the benefits these places have. The US south at least has delicious food and friendly people. The US west coast is at least an economic engine that produces things of value rather than just a financial capital.

I'd replace west coast with "megacities" since there is a lot of that in some big East Coast cities as well. I've been to NYC before and the "rich as hell but masses of poor people" could describe that city to the T as well.

I can only think of one cow north of NYC in the US and he only got there because of his southern stupidity (Digibro). NYC also seems to be one the exception to that region and doesn't seem so bad considering its population.

Obviously it isn't going to represent everybody but I'm going on my perceived averages. Perhaps that data would be useful. I suspect that I'd be proven right.

Edit: Thinking to NYC. It seems like a place good at creating "communities".

I always thought lolcows were more of an eastern US thing (east of the Mississippi). CWC is from Virginia, Kengle is from Rhode Island, "124 IQ" is from Indiana, Nick Bate was from Pennsylvania, Phil (ADF) was from New Jersey, A-Log is from New York...

Seems to me like they're almost always fat white American manchildren with brown hair.

Anyway wow, there sure are a lot of furries in Germany, the UK, and the USA.

The United Kingdom basically has the same situation as the USA.
as a lifelong resident of northern England I'd disagree with the first part
there are huge cultural divides between London, the Midlands, the north and Scotland; outside university cities, much of northern England and Scotland is old-fashioned and hard-headed, has had less direct exposure to transatlantic cultural cancer, and as a result has more in common with Australia, Poland or eastern Europe than it does with London
in north-east England, especially Teesside, the culture is relatively tough and intolerant of pomposity, so particularly unlikely to generate lolcows
ever noticed how the vast majority of English lolcows come from greater London or the university cities?

the bit about London is bang on the money though

We just haven't tapped into it due to the language barrier.
That's the reason most of the famous cows come from the US. Most famous people on the internet in general do, because that's where most English speakers live, those from other places may create content in their native tongues rather than English.

Also, the SJW movement never took much motion outside of the Anglophone countries.

Minor cx: Zinnia's a #Floridaman (like, btw, Jazz Jennings). Could use Greta and Pajeet as California examples.
Florida is the south and moving to California precludes you from being able to call yourself a prairieboy.

It depends on the type of lolcow, the eccentric weirdos (PixiTeri, Shaner, Connor, CWC) are usually in the sticks and small towns, while the degenerates (Rat King members, etc.) are from the West Coast or big cities.

I decided to make a map of some of the more prominent cows. It's a Google My Map so I'm not sure if it's safe to share, but here's a screenshot:
