|Leo Waddell and his mother Hayley.|
This article had me thinking though, I wished that I’d known I was trans when I was that young and could have had the chance to take hormone blockers.
I hate the way I am right now, my body disgusts and upsets me. And it’s not just because it’s male instead of female. It’s because of the effects that puberty and testosterone had on me. I’m too tall, my shoulders too broad, my hands and feet are too big, my voice is too deep, my body too hairy and my head too bald.
I’m not inn a good position to start transitioning from, the results won’t be good. I’ve seen people that have had luckier puberties and transitioned well, and those that got to start transitioning so young that they received the blockers and I can’t help but feel incredibly jealous about it.
Denying Leo these important drugs could have devastating consequences for him. It’s not just a bad decision to deny him the medication, it’s down right cruel.
