yknow, DIY HRT is not ideal but i do wish there wasn't such a culture of shaming around it in so many trans spaces

@allie So much this

Like, there's plenty of countries where getting hormones prescribed takes years and is largely up to chance, if you can even get them then, and it's not like trans people magically don't exist in those, so DIY is the only option for many

Heck, even in a developed country like Finland it's a pain in the arse to get HRT, if you even can get it in the first place

@SigmaOne plus it's often really restrictive for minors, which is specially cruel considering the pain that is going through puberty for a lot of us

@allie Really restrictive is an understatement, really

Based on what I know, at least in Finland, minors just straight up can't even get HRT via official means

I can't even imagine what it's like in some country widely known as transphobic and/or conservative

@SigmaOne here in brazil, prescribing even blockers to a trans person under 16 is pretty much banned
