Eight months pregnant and living in New York City, Yvonne Lin has been gradually concluding that men suck.

But, one particular man on the subway might have just changed that.

This man noticed the heavily pregnant woman standing and immediately offered her his seat. Lin rewarded him with a trophy as part of a social experiment she was conducting to see if any man would offer his seat to her after not one did during her first pregnancy.

Eight months into the experiment (and her pregnancy), she finally had a winner.

Lin took to Instagram to share this moment, posting a photo of the kind man holding the trophy that reads: "#1 DECENT DUDE: First Man to Offer Subway Seat to Pregnant Woman Throughout Two Pregnancies."

"If I finally get a seat from a guy then I have to celebrate this some way and make sure he knows he's appreciated," Lin said.

Gents: if you see a pregnant woman standing on the subway, be polite and offer her your seat!
