A Tale of Two Sex Hormones

In this article, Anthony Esolen makes the logical case that if we think it is wrong and harmful  for males to use steroids it is wrong and harmful for females to use steroids.

Yet, when one compares this sex hormone, testosterone, to the sex hormone now in the news, estrogen, it is hard to see why, on medical and social grounds alone, the one would be severely restricted and the other so freely dispensed that people are ready, not simply to affirm its legality, but to mandate that people and institutions violate their religious faith to purchase it for women who want it.

You can find a handy and clear brochure by Dr Angela LanFranchi, a top breast cancer doctor, making this point.   Her site has other fantastic resources.
