Mark Bryan is known for being a man in heels, pantyhose, and a skirt. This native Texan is a robotics engineer living in Germany – he’s married with children and loves working on vintage Porsches. On today’s episode, Mark and I dress up in our favorite tights and heels, hang out in our garages next to his Porsche and my motorcycle, and discuss the finer points of German engineering, style, and living authentically.
Girls can wear jeans and cut their hair short
Wear shirts and boots ’cause it’s okay to be a boy
But for a boy to look like a girl is degrading
‘Cause you think that being a girl is degrading
But secretly you’d love to know what it’s like wouldn’t you
What it feels like for a girl
– Madonna, “What It Feels Like For A Girl”
If you have confidence in yourself and you go out in the world, people will see that. If you don’t have it, all they see is someone that’s weak and scared. If you are weak and scared… that’s when the wolves will attack. The wolves are predators, they like to attack the weak. The bullies and the people who can’t understand it, they’ll see that weakness and that’s when they track with the verbal abuse or the physical abuse. If you walk tall and confident like you know what you’re doing and you believe in yourself, people will leave you alone.

“If you can create something time cannot erode, something which ignores the eccentricities of particular eras or moments, something truly timeless, this is the ultimate victory.”
