re: Anarchist trans health care, hrt, contact info at bottom; long reply
@0x00 @GayNiffler i mean, doctors in general can be pretty hostile to trans people and our existence in general, and especially nonbinary people. because even if everything is paid for (as it usually is in the UK, from what I've heard), transphobic doctors are going to give you every excuse they can as to why you can't get medical help for your dysphoria. and though this person doesn't help folks in the US, there's similar shit there too due to the above reason *and* not being able to pay for the hormones themselves.
it may or may not be bad health and safety-wise, but this is sometimes the only option people have, and gender dysphoria is bad enough that some trans people are willing to take that risk in order to actually get care.
i think it's a better idea to focus energy on making it easier to access in general than punching down on things like this that happen as a result of lack of access.
