define “being a good man” as simply not being one of the
bad. And that doesn’t really work. Being a better man means being
willing to step up when needed. And as we've seen all too often in
cases of harassment or assault - whether it's cat-calling, an
aggressive stranger on the subway or a creeper at a convention -

To quote Preacher: you’ve got to be a good man, because there’s way too many of the bad.
...and so much more.
