My take on this:
Usually Trans / Gender non-confroming / Queer people are affected not just economically but also living quality and basic human rights and needs by the each country system they are from. The country i'm familiar with a little bit is Malaysia and neighbouring country in SEA, Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore, The Philippines, Japan and also Europe where system and culture top to bottom is very binary in identification and difficult for us to navigate our everyday lives but easier for cisgender people for this system that they have inherited from the past. Its even difficult if we are from countries that are using religious system as their law because its impossible to change the mindset of the people when the government is using religion to gain votes to stay in power and to control society. Especially in Malaysia where reading is not part of the everyday activity and we were taught certain version of the state religion when we were young and was forbid to question anything, and then most people just carried that version through their lives without getting update because nobody read or update or even question anything. We were taught to consume ideology without questioning it. I was brought up in that environment. The only way for Malay to move forward is for them to stop following their traditional social conditioning and start question their past what have they consumed and analyze it. Forget that sentence 'submit 100%'. Question it.
