Given the lack of success finding information on this topic, I've written a short survey to try and gather some basic subjective data on my own. It would be great if some other folks on transfeminine HRT could complete it :)

A large chunk of the Fediverse was scraped; your posts are being “released”
Matteo Zignani, Christian Quadri, Alessia Galdeman, Sabrina Gaito andGian Paolo Rossi from the University of #Milan scraped all english speaking instances (363) listed on instances.social, wrote a paper about it and are distributing the dataset.
“In this context, we release a dataset gathered from Mastodon, […]“
“These data have been collected by implementing an ad-hoc tool for downloading the public timelines of the servers, namely instances, that form the Mastodon platform, along with the meta-data associated to them.“
“The spider exploits the instance list obtained from the previous step and makes a pool of requests to the instance endpoint 4 which returns the latest toots of the local timeline. Since the time-lines implement a pagination mechanism, the spider extracts the URL for the next request and repeat this procedure till it reaches the end of the timeline.”
We spent hours navigating the tall shelves of wool and yarn, finding several deadends before we finally arrived at The Witch's Door.
"I'm sorry" my fiance apologized, "It's been a while since I visited."
"It's fine, I just hope your Nan likes me."
"She'll love you as long as we never mention you come from a family of witch-hunters."
"I'm joining a better family!"
My fiance chuckled," Ah... and remember; don't mention her skein problem."
