Yvonne Lin went through nearly two entire pregnancies before a man offered her his seat on the subway. Lin said she had gotten plenty of seats from women. But no seats from men. She told herself, “If I finally get a seat from a guy then I have to celebrate … and make sure he knows he’s appreciated.” Lin purchased what she called a “silly little card” and carried it around throughout the third trimester of her first pregnancy, but no gentleman ever earned it. When she got pregnant again last year, Lin said she decided to continue her “social experiment,” but raised the stakes: she carried around a 7-inch trophy inside her work backpack. The bronze statuette — which appears to depict the “Incredible Hulk” tearing his shirt — sits atop a plaque that reads “#1 DECENT DUDE. First man to offer subway seat to pregnant woman throughout two pregnancies.” Eight months into her second pregnancy a guy gave up his seat for her.
