There have been many times I wished we had left the“good” out of our title. “The Man Project” would haveworked just fine. Or even “Dudes,” or “Why,” to playoff our genetic code.But from the start “good” has been our cross to bear.With so many men in the public eye called out for badbehavior, men and women both seem to have a thirstfor a different paradigm of manhood–something freshand real and, yes, good. Thus, our Project was born.The problem, of course, is that talking aboutgoodness is like asking an Eskimo to describe snow–it’s nearly impossible to pin down. Goodness is harder to define than badness, which may be one reasonwhy as a culture we have been spending so muchtime talking about men being bad rather than good.Things get even muddier when you start talking about“good” husbands and “good” fathers. The slopetowards righteousness is slippery indeed. I am writingabout goodness, so, therefore, I am better than you.
