Clothing preference shouldn’t be a big deal, but unfortunately, some people still treat it like a cause for concern. Luckily, people like Mark Bryan are around to explain that if he likes wearing skirts and high heels to work, that’s nobody’s business but his own.
According to Bored Panda, Bryan is an American living in Germany who wears skirts and high heels at home as well as out and about. He has three children and is happily married to a woman. Bryan started an Instagram account, @markbryan911, to show off his daily looks.
His Instagram bio asserts that he is a “straight, happily married guy that loves Porsches, beautiful women and incorporating heels and skirts into my daily wardrobe.”
Bryan, who believes clothing isn’t gendered, regularly shares images of himself posing in stylish get-ups, often pairing button-up collared shirts with heels. In his bio, he describes himself as a “straight, happily married guy that loves Porsches, beautiful women and incorporating heels and skirts into my daily wardrobe.”
“Clothes have no gender, but I do refer to my shirts as men’s; just to be clear, I do not wear blouses. Even if I say I wear a men’s shirt and a women’s skirt and heels, it’s all non-gender clothes to me,” he said.
“Besides, men wore heels before women did. Maybe not today’s stiletto-style heels, but men did wear heels before women.”
Mark told Bored Panda that he wears women’s and men’s clothing mixed together “because I can” and says he has always admired women who wear tight skirts and heels because they represent power for him.
However, Bryan, a father of three, says that he can lose his temper when people question him about his sexuality. “Most of the time, I’ll tell them it’s none of their business,” he said.
