No matter how democratic or leftist the state is, if you dont have "female" on your Birth certificate, prepare to live a life of rejection. Before anyone says that its "hard for everyone out here" in the job market, there is absolutely no comparison to the difficulty that a TPOC would have in networking for job prospects, interviewing and even working along side of "regular" people. For TPOC, they cant even walk into a store without being illegally profiled and removed from the premises. All transwomen are seen as street walking prostitutes on hard drugs looking to steal merchandise. Why would anyone consider hiring them?
So I dont really understand what value does attaining a degree, rehearsing an interview, revising a resume, networking at trade events, purchasing expensive wardrobe and cosmetics in thousands of dollars, when the employer just figuratively spits on your face at the interview.
Even if TPOC wanted to be self employed, they will never get enough money to sustain any startup liabilities. Where would this money come from?
