Onward to 2012: But First, a Look Back at the Top 12 stories of 2011

In 2011, we posted over 2,500 articles and stories — about men, about the male experience, the changing roles of men and how to navigate being a good in a world that is rapidly changing. We don’t exclude women, of course, we have women writers, women commenters, and write often about gender issues and the relationships between men and women. We believe in equality between men and women, but we start from the perspective of what is good about men.

Over the course of the year, The Good Men Project has had over 2.5 million unique visitors and over 10 million pageviews. This list includes our most popular posts that also, collectively, reflect what we are about — a male perspective on difficult and provocative topics (race, abortion, sex and relationships, gender and sexuality, bullying, depression), often from a first-person point of view.

About the Editors

We're all in this together.


  1. I love the Freudian slip in how one of my columns was retitled here.

    • Lisa Hickey says:

      Oh, funny. My fault. I’ve fixed it, but for those who still want the chuckle, it said “Is it Natural for Older Guys to Lust After Younger Men?” (instead of women).

  3. I would have preferred if you let the readers vote the best article for the year 2011
