Yes, it is completely okay to bind even if you identify as female. I know a lot of women that do it. You don’t need to be anyone other than who you are to bind. If it makes you happy, then go ahead love. No one should ever tell you any different and if they do, ignore them.
It is your body and you can do whatever you like to it as long as you are being safe and taking care of yourself. But if you do decide to bind, please please do it properly and don’t use bandages because that is so dangerous!
I found some information for those that are new to binding, which you can find here and here. There are also certain places that are better than others for buying binders. I’ve heard that Underworks are very good.
If you do decide to bind, please stay safe and follow the tips on the links I’ve given you.
Stay strong and always keep fighting.
