Projector Ashley made a video response to Mercedes Allen's post "The Prerequisites to 'Woman'." I thought it was very cool to stumble across the video and wanted to highlight it here on the site to continue the discussion.

I agree completely about the need to identify with a privilege in order to benefit from it. I've been saying the same thing for quite some time to people claiming trans women had male-privilege. I certainly never managed to gain anything I would consider a benefit from it myself.

"I've always been a girl up here" is so pentrating to me. Ashley I've been watching your videos on youtube for a long while now and love the time you give my community and me. We're in different places as all genderqueer folk are, but you resonate so many aspects of my journey. You've helped me so many different ways in understanding my need to be both girl and boy.
