Macho Like Me is the true account of Helie Lee’s remarkable six-month journey living life as man. Cutting off her hair, donning men’s clothes and moving out of her home to begin life anew as Harry, Helie sets out to prove a point: that men have it so much better than women. But as Helie soon finds out, her assumptions are quickly dashed – resulting in a new world-view that ends up surprising many – especially herself.

Motivated to embark on this journey by yet another relationship with a man gone wrong, Helie reveals her plan to become a man to her friends – none of whom believe she will go through with it. So Helie decides to enlist her friends Anna and Katie to document her experience as proof.
Beginning with a weight lifting regime to build up masculine bulk, then shaving her head to a near crew cut and getting a whole new male wardrobe, Helie is excited to begin this new gender role-playing experiment. But passing as a man is a lot harder than it looks. Despite her studious observation of men’s physical behaviors and mannerisms, Helie is initially unable to shake her own. Passing as a gay man at first, Helie’s journey takes her into the world of male bonding through the ritual of sports, a near disastrous encounter with some macho Latino men, and a moment of epiphany at the Playboy Mansion. Through it all, Helie begins to see that men have it much harder than she ever imagined.
