For transwomen/transgirls: You should consider veganism for more then moral reasons.
Vegan diets consist largely of Soy, (at least for me). Over long periods of time, long periods of consumption through say, soy milk, your body produces less testosterone and more estrogen. Essentially, a soy based diet definitely doesn’t have the same effects as hrt, but for people who cannot get hrt, being vegan is a good temporary replacement for it. It’s certainly less expensive then hrt. The downside is it takes a very, very long time to become physically noticeable. That said, that also might be a plus if you’re in a position where hrt isn’t available.
Even more, most meat and other animal products (vertebrates) tend to raise your testosterone.
So if you are capable, and you are a transwoman, eat less animal product and more soy for a slight increase in estrogen production within your body. And nobody will ask questions.
At least be polite you asshole
i am not required to be polite, especially in responding to a shitty attempt to emotionally manipulate people into being vegan. as a trans woman, and as a human being i cant abide by this.
the op is textbook predatory cause-evangelizing that targets people’s insecurities. why are people reblogging this with anything but vitriol at the op
it’s like triply awful because the last thing people in these situations need is a boneheaded pseudo-religious diet that subjects them to vastly increased risks of malnutrition
