I've never heard of danazol being used as a puberty blocker, and it seems like a very odd choice given how danazol is also an anabolic steroid. I chose leuprorelin as an alternative example because Wikipedia says it's one of the most widely used GnRH agonists, but this is of course pretty arbitrary. If there's some reason something else would be a more representative example, feel free to change it! (But if you choose danazol I wanna hear your reasoning.)
(Added some links to the Mad Gender Science Wiki. Changed headings to be more open-ended about the person's assigned gender and gender identity.)

'''Hormone therapy''' involves blocking the body's sex hormones and/or replacing or supplementing these with a different sex hormone or set of sex hormones. Sex hormones include estrogen (aka oestrogen), progesterone and testosterone. Blockers include antigonadotropins such as danazolleuprorelin.
 
Many [[nonbinary]], [[genderqueer]] or gender variant people opt not to undergo hormone therapy, or to follow a full hormone therapy regime equivalent to binary transition. However these are not the only options.
