Looks like adults are being targeted too.
This is an entirely different game altogether. I don't know whatever the Florida law says, but adults who want to get treatment should be allowed to even (specially) if not funded by the government.
Unlike (arguably) abortion, this clearly doesn't harm anyone else and the only reason for the state to limit those treatments would be to refuse funding if the possible negative financial consequences outweigh positive ones. Insurers wishing to fund them or just people willing to pay out of pocket should still be allowed to do so, always under medical supervision.

Note that Desantis and other folks banning it for trans folk allow it for cis folk.
@Godstud may confirm, but I doubt he wants to make steroid use for the purpose of exacerbating puberty legal for teens.
What's your take? Should it be legal to allow a 15 year old male with body dysmorphia take steroids to get ripped (i.e. exacerbate secondary male sex characteristics) so he can become confident with his body and maybe with girls too?
