    Or is that mainly a transgender women thing? I hope it's okay that I ask.

    Yeah, not something I would think many gay men would do. If any. They're gay, but I would assume most still consider themselves men. I know there are many who do go for a more feminine look, but they still consider themselves men.

    Of course, I just heard of it being taken in at least small doses, but that may be incorrect.

    From my understanding, and this is second hand so take it with a gain of salt, but I know there are lots of things that have a fair amount of anti-androgens in them such as soy and mint, but I have heard some men do eat these things to soften their features some what, not to the effect of taking hormones, but it does have a small effect.

    There are women who take estrogen for health reasons: menstrual, menopause, birth control, cancer, etc.

    Straight men also take estrogen for breast and prostate cancer.

    Some MtF would take it for hormone therapy, but keep in mind that this route is not always available to them.

    Gays-->I would have no idea why any would take this??? Except maybe a young gay child thinking his mom's birth control was candy???? Which has happened O___O"

    Regarding a gay man, the idea behind it would be softer skin and a rounder butt. At least as far as I heard.

    That's where things liking eating more soy and doing exercises aimed at the butt would come in. Not hormones.

    I think using estrogen for these purposes in gay males is not optimal as they are creating an excess of estrogen in their body. This excess can lead to bone disorders, cancers, and many other health disorders. This risk is not the same when MtF take estrogen b/c they also take testosterone antagonists and most who do take hormone therapy talk to their doctor for a plan for safety. Most of my gay friends just eat really healthy and work out for nice skin and a butt lol.

    That sounds like something from a fake news site -- although I guess there are some people who would take just about anything.

    I hope not. There are health risks involved with upsetting your body's natural hormones, as has been mentioned.

    Why would this be? Availablity/insurance? Are some people just resistant to it? I saw on youtube a transwoman called Theryn Meyer was talking a little about her hormones, the androgen blockers weren't working at first, so when she was in danger of have excess hormones when she took estrogen. It sorted itself eventually, but I wouldn't be surprised if some were stuck with it.

    Interesting! I actually never heard of that case before. O___O" When I last wrote that statement above, I was thinking cost, accessibility, and other factors like support system.
