Dammit, we shouldn’t fucking have to. Yes, that’s how we used to navigate transition. I myself started with hormones I did not get from a doctor or with a legal prescription. That is dangerous.

HRT while not under a doctor’s care can lead to problems. And trans people will find a way, just like we always have, but that way is needlessly difficult and harmful. I mentioned this on another forum, but I was planning on moving back to Kansas City after law school because I loved it there and I don’t really like New Jersey. But the way things are going, I’m afraid I’ll end up in a re-education camp if I go back there. Or prison. Same thing, I guess.
