STPs, like any part of being FtM (or genderqueer!) are purely a personal decision. Whether or not you choose to use one is up to you, and no one should try to sway you in any direction. If you're looking for product reviews/comparisons, that's an entirely different thing! XD A lot of STPs are pretty inconvenient, and there's no "perfect" one, but some work better than others for different people. You just have to try one and see what works for you.
