Remove over emphasis on independence from feminism.

Ashton Deroy writes: “Feminism is about self-empowerment.” Says every capitalist Liberal/Libertarian feminist ever. It is wrong, it is an error in judgement that doesn’t fix the problem. Why isn’t feminism about teaching cooperative relationships both professionally and intimately? Why doesn’t feminism care more about the mental health crisis of loneliness? The answer is it does.

We just have to step away from the Capitalist mass produced feminism. The kind that allows Corporate brand Liberalism which you see in Belleville Ontario for corporations to be able to fire a woman for taking care of her father/family. The kind of feminism that serves a purpose only as a placeholder for regression and losing the rights women of the past fought so hard for. Feminism has to include democratic collectivism, unified theory and the ability to condemn Businesses & people who don’t follow the new order.

We can’t settle for Market feminism. It does not work! How can it be feminism if the women who want to participate can’t invite their boyfriends to join the revolutionary culture? It does not work. How can we allow for feminism without political purpose? It does not work. It defeats the idea entirely. We aren’t creating a system of equality. We are creating a Capitalist system that allows a woman to be oppressed the same as a man, which is not the point!

Feminism must be inclusive, egalitarian. It must fight for economic environmental justice. Anything else is not going to work. No one wants Hilary Clinton’s version of Liberal feminism anymore. We need something better! We need something that shakes the earth beneath us.

3 reasons why Business people shouldn’t run the economy?

Ashton Deroy writes: This is blog going to be absolutely nuts. Someone with a Business diploma from Loyalist College is going to actually explain to you why we shouldn’t run the economy. This is straight out of crazy town. Except what will be said? Is totally & completely true.

Now yes this blog is a Socialist platform written by an autistic blogger. Yes we constantly argue the evils of the currents status of private ownership. It is hard to believe I came to this conclusion while taking a Business Diploma in college. Yet here it is. I don’t think just because you own something that it should mean you own people.

Here are my reasons I don’t think Business people should run our economy. For the purposes of this article we will use economy and society interchangeably. That is because the management of the economy directly correlates with the management of society. Economics in relation to Social Politics should be taught as one course. They are not separate topics at all!

  1. Single Bottom lines – Otherwise known as profits over planet and profits over people. Business people are made to put their own gains first. At the expense of everyone else! This is why 44% of jobs in Ontario earn minimum wage. Why is the economy failing? Largely this reason. We can’t run a people last economy otherwise people will not want to participate and society will indeed fall apart.  Companies will sacrifice life & limb just to report high profits. As a result the individual income has taken a huge blow and society is on a downward path.
  2. Greed is good logic – This is the kind of logic used to slowly remove the lowest earners in society not just out of the economy. Out of society & existence itself. Greed is not good! Cooperation is good. Social well-being is good. Elderly people not dying in a wait for long term care is good. Human trafficking victims getting access to safe housing is good. Greed is bad! It hinders our society and is a cost to our most marginalized people.
  3. They are idiots – I am comfortable saying after graduating a Business program at Loyalist College. That I was surrounded by selfish and dangerous idiots! They aim only to exploit people and improve convenience for themselves! Listen Loyalist College students who mostly skipped out Social Responsibility & Sustainability course. You demonstrated you were crappy people. I have no reason to validate what you are doing!
  4. They are against challenging the status qou – All these business people care about is ensuring their gains. Innovation is only welcome if they save money. Like the thousands of teachers the Progressive Conservative government in Ontario is currently trying to replace with computers. They look at innovation, for all of the wrong reasons and it is something we need to put a check in balance in place for .

We need to control Business people in our society. Not allow for the opposite. Greed is bad, idiots running democracy is a kleptocracy, profits are not the end all be all. The status quo sucks! We need to be more responsible and kind in how we operate society. If that means discrediting Business people then that is what I will do.

3 things you can do when you don’t like a performer critic’s writing. Commentary on Lily Devine’s reply.

3 things you can do when you don't like a performer critic's writing

Ashton Deroy writes: To Lily:  I assure you my post was not geared at some agenda. Just the fact I didn’t enjoy your show. I didn’t want to write in my first post that you were mad at me from Kingston Pride because I didn’t think you remembered me. Now I am going to warn you although people are largely on your side, the optics of public perception are also bringing me some support. Like way more support than if you had just of ignored me. Consider your klout. You have influence & reach. I really don’t. 

About me & alcohol, I really don’t have a high tolerance. Also, I acknowledged my autism had nothing to do with how she behaved. I bring it up on my blog because I am indexed as an autistic blogger. That is why I brought it up online. It actually has nothing to do with her. The more I say autism, the more it helps my brand. “Autism, Autism, Autism.” , “ADHD ADHD ADHD.” It is actually funny. It is my condition I can mention it whenever I want. Also, it does have to do with why I was partially out of it at the bar. I am noise & light-sensitive. I used to wear those big soundproof headphones.

When you are a performer? It is hard to take criticism. People work very hard to perfect their art and style of engaging with the audience. Sometimes it can be upsetting when someone writes a review for you. Here are 3 things you can do to deal with a critic you don’t like: 

  1. Ignore the critic – Right now my articles are being commented on, I am getting website hits. Which means I am gaining exposure. This is good for me as someone who runs a blog. I don’t think this helps with what you are trying to do. I don’t have much of an audience, I am not on stage or in any pageant’s. I have a website. That I don’t even use paid advertising anymore. I just share posts. 
  2. Do not write a large reply – In Digital Marketing we learn that more words usually mean more attention. That would be great if you wanted attention to this. Since it is drama though, I am not sure you want to blow this up. It really only benefits the critic who wanted to just stir the pot to begin with. I really didn’t want to stir the pot. I just wanted to express disappointment. You overloaded on context though & now people can recognize this as an online rivalry where they can choose sides and again some people are choosing my side. Also here is what the reply did to my ratings. Ratings
  3.  Don’t provide context – Again this is in your best interest, not mine. I want people to know who I am from what I write. As your critic, you should want me to disappear in to unknown. Again what has happened by the large reply is that people really can acknowledge this as a rivalry now. Instead of just some loser who just writes reviews on their blog in a basement somewhere. 

Below is Lily Devine’s reply and a hyperlink to the original article. I don’t know, I am glad she gave me 5 minutes of recognition & attention. She really gave me a chance to expand my Klout on an article that really was not that popular before she wrote her reply. She is right, we did have drama on Kingston Pride. When I wrote my article I was not going to include that history, but she brought it up. Which in my opinion only helps in telling my story, which is really what this website is about. If you think I should write more entertainment reviews, send me an email on the form below: 

 

 


This was a reply to Dear Lilly DeVine 

Dear Ashton Deroy of ashtonderoy.com

Picture of post

First I would like to thank you for once again going public to twist my words into your own agenda to further put a value on your socialism, by calling me many things I am not. To the point of even tagging me on Twitter, although you and your friends could have simply sent me a message directly to voice your concerns in an adult manner; it would have been dealt with months ago.

It was very enlightening to see your response to the last show you were at, from when you were just a minor sitting on an elected board position from when I was Miss Kingston Pride while screwing around with a board member old enough to be your grandfather to gain the grounds you ‘believed’ you had to do as you wish. Until you were removed from the board because of a rather distasteful video of me surfaced on your site so long ago doing exactly what you are doing now.

I would like to address the fact you were drunk enough that you were cut off after one drink, falling asleep at the front table where not only myself but other performers were performing. Even though I asked how many fingers I was holding up, making sure you weren’t passed out cold, I had also asked numerous times if you were ok and if you needed a cab called to get you home. As I did with your friends, who replied with ‘he’s ok, he’s just had too much to drink.’

Although your lack of understanding on what that could apply while sitting front row at a DRAG SHOW is of your own accord. HOWEVER, the fact of you being autistic had absolutely no bearing in the matter and NOT ONCE was brought up.

Your choice to blame me for your lack of involvement in anything LGBT2Q+ is a ploy to make your own wants and needs seem viable rather than leaving under your own accord, this is only appears to be an underlying issue you have with MANY LGBT2Q+ events over the years since our time on the pride board so long ago.

The fact of my personal story of being with ONE Asian man many years ago, was just that…a story turned into a joke at my own expense, due to him passing out drunk after showing me what could only be described as a grub sticking out of dirt.

Not that of an entire population, because IF your friend had also been sober enough to remember I had also stated that was not the case with all Asians because I have a very long list of favourites on my Pornhub account.

I am terribly sorry that your friend took offence, but yet again it here I sit that I have to explain myself to those who feel the need to smear my name, I did not know she was Asian in any capacity or anyone else there on what their nationality is or religion, political stance, etc.

As for my candid and unprofessional take on my once drag daughter, you see, unfortunately because of her attempts to destroy my name to make me into something I am not; she had also crossed the line because I am a single parent and she brought it to my home. To my business. And for that, my personal and business finances took a major blow in the Belleville area costing me much more than you can comprehend while sitting behind a keyboard creating a blog for your scholastic entertainment between friends.

If you truly believe Belleville is the ONLY place that suffers from major drug use, then my recommendation would be to crawl out of that cave you hide in and take a good look around. It’s a major issue EVERYWHERE, including mental health!

To say I don’t understand mental health is quite the slap in the face in regards to drug use, Ashton pot is not a drug in Canada!

Thanks for reading…but I do it better!

Oh and, my name is spelled LILY not LILLY

3 Reasons why asking others for directions bothers some men you travel with.

Men and directions

Written by Ashton Deroy:

This is a conversational blog piece on relationships. 

By now everyone should know of the cliche on men not liking to ask others for directions. It is a pet peeve of mine. It gets on some of our nerves. It is not just a matter of not wanting to do it ourselves, we actually don’t like when people we travel with do it! Why don’t we like this? I am going to explain 3 obvious reasons we don’t like asking for directions.

  1. You expose weakness – Take for example when I was in Oshawa this weekend to help my friend prepare for college. We were downtown Oshawa trying to find our way around. My friend Glessie thinks, lets ask someone for directions. There is a big difference in who street savvy men will ask for directions and  who women with good interpersonal skills will ask for directions. Women with higher interpersonal skills think you can ask everyone as long as they do not look sketchy. Men are programmed differently. If we do ask for directions we ask a security guard, a store employee, someone who if they mugged us we could identify something about their occupation. What women don’t realize they are doing? You are telling some random person on the street. “Hi we are lost here. We are either tourists or vulnerable persons who could be isolated & ambushed easily.”  In fact in 100 Deadly Skills by Clint Emerson he talks about blending in to the environment you are in. One of the things that will make someone stick out is identifying they don’t know where they are going or how they will get there. This exposes a vulnerability that makes you a potential victim for an attack. https://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/crime/article212749359.html man gets away with $760 in cash for robbing a Florida tourist.(They always go after the tourist or lost person
  2. You expose incompetence – Asking for directions to me is like saying, “Hi we barely know how to follow a Google Maps instruction. Can you explain our route to where we are going?” No guy wants to look like he is bad with technology. Also the other thing you expose is if a crime occurs you will barely be able to tell the authorities the name of the street it occurred on in time for anything to be done about it. Why is this? If you needed directions, chances are you don’t f***** know where you are!
  3. You get the right answer 33% of the time – This is the biggest reason I will not travel long distance without data, a fully charged cellphone battery or someone who doesn’t know exactly where the heck we are going! Chances are only 1/3 of the people you ask for directions will give you the right directions. It isn’t always their fault. They were not on your trip! You are, you should be taking responsibility for your entire trip. On a side note, I also give people bad advice on directions all the time. Usually they are shouting at me out the car window for directions and I just have no idea where the 401 is! 

Listen there is a value to knowing how to get where you are going. Personally if I think someone will need spoken directions to get somewhere I would simply rather not travel with them. Invest in getting an independent sense of direction. Men do not want to be with the girl who is ready to ask anyone on the street, “Hi, do you know how to get here?” I am Ashton Deroy and please, break this habit as soon as possible.

3 reasons I love Green Grass Oasis

Oasis

Ashton Deroy Writes: I love Tyendinaga Cannabis. I think yesterday on Instagram I may have triggered people who think, “He hates First Nations cannabis. He is an a**.” No, I am being honest and upfront with the current state of the legally defined illegal cannabis market. The honesty is at the end of the day is my social tribe needs to be in constant communication with each other to make sure cannabis is safe, accessible & we all agree on where we spend our money. That is it, I am not big enough to commit Libel which then amounts damage to Legacy 420. I am not the moral police! Check out the marijuana black list

Now I love Green Grass Oasis. I truly believe they are one of the kindest and fairest dispensaries in Tyendinaga. What do I love about this unlicensed dispensary? Here are 3 things I really love about Green Grass Oasis

  1. Friendly staff– They have a friendly & knowledgeable staff who can answer your questions on products.
  2. Never been short – We have never been shorted at Green Grass Oasis. There is a reputation of certain locations on the Res shorting people when they buy something like an ounce. 
  3. Close to but not quite medical quality – I am not going to pretend Res weed comes close to the quality of medical marijuana. Oasis comes pretty close though. However they don’t give you percentage estimates on your containers, I don’t think anything is scientifically verified with their strains & you don’t really know much about how they ensure they grow safe cannabis for your consumption. However great quality so far. Top shelf cannabis is amazing & for lower shelf items you get what you pay for which is not all bad either. 

Do not get me wrong. I sometimes buy legal Cannabis from OCS and Aphria. However, I am still a supporter of the illegal market. We just have to be open and honest about what the illegal market is like. If you are a friend or a family member in my tribe you have to tell people when you suspect foul play at illegal dispensaries. 

If you work with Legacy 420. Contact me @ Ashtonderoy@gmail.com . I have just heard some really evil things from people in regards to Legacy 420 hence why we keep you on the Black List. Prove me wrong! Just prove me wrong and do some good. I also read the release on habitat for humanity. However, the accusations I heard were that the operation was gang owned  & that you watered down CBD products. As a person with autism, I need places to grab reliable CBD.

For my Business Community Projects class me and a few other students played a crucial role in helping to develop Forward Finances Social Media Marketing Plan.

Hawkins Cheezies Sustainability Proposal

Had a bit of a struggle in my academic pursuit of a Social Responsibility & Sustainability assignment to include in my portfolio. This is the year of the Climate Emergency in Canada. I want to show that I am someone who takes the ramifications of the issue seriously. I struggled, I had a fit, & I didn’t want to go in this direction for my proposal. Just because my personal feelings are that Hawkins Cheezies respects their employees way more than any employer I have ever served in Telecommunications. However, I did write about some Sustainability issues surrounding Hawkin’s Cheezies. Please click the link below to read.

Talking about a family narcissist. Ashton Deroy

Codependency

Ashton Deroy Writes: Have you ever met someone so pig headed, they would let you criticize our public banking system before they let you criticize them for having, for example $8,000 in debt? That would be the case for me in dealing with one of my family’s narcissists. What is a narcissist?  

Narcissist

Some people think I qualify as a narcissist because I write blogs. However I don’t think the world runs around me & as I will point out to anyone who spends enough time with me, I hate myself. However I am talking about someone who is so truly delusional in narcissistic  behaviors, I could at times buy in to what they said. Although that has faded over time. Now I am mesmerized by the display of constantly unhealthy behavior, while keeping a healthy distance and doing some healthy introspection on top of it. 

Ever met a couple where one of the people in the couple has a sole purpose of making sure the other doesn’t crash the car well drunk? This reminds me of this narcissist’s girlfriend or sometimes the “enabler”.  The thin line of co-existence & codependency is met by the fact he has interfered with her ability to keep a job, take care of her daughter & function. Meanwhile when she had a job and he didn’t he have no problem asking her for the money for weed. I repeat, “enabler”. I said, I use them to introspect and this is partially why I don’t want my boyfriend to buy me weed. 

How to distance yourself from the narcissist? 

  • Lie– When they call? Say you have stuff to do.
  • Tell Harsh truths- Just as effective as lying because when the narcissist has taken too big a blow on their ego they will back off. (If they are not violent)
  •  Don’t let them control the schedule– They always want to suck you back in to their world. Always state why you are busy or indifferent to their plans. 

I use all of these tips to deal with the family narcissist because getting sucked in is not an option. 

Three things we can’t really say to this family narcissist: 

  • You need a job – You are behind on your bills and can’t afford food half the time. Again you have $8,000 in debt. 
  • Go get medical help – You have serious mental health and addictions issues. Yet you do not address them 
  • Treat your mother & sister with respect – How is it you have slut shamed one & called the other a whore?

Anyways I saw this narcissist last night in Stirling Ontario & as of now at Loyalist College. I am glad it is over.

Comments on the failed Liberty Brothers project.

Ashton Deroy in the Loyalist College cafeteria

Ashton Deroy Writes: The tail of my demise as a blogger and pod-caster has been greatly under emphasized. A lot has happened over the past two years to really make me invest less time in WordPress than I would have liked. First of all I spent the last two years living in a nut job’s house. Her name is Jinny Sung, she likes communism, Progressive Conservatives and bossing around her college tenants. I lived with that idiot. Also I did something I my friend Peter told me not to do, I got in work relationships with idiots because yes plenty of us are related to them.

Specifically I wanted to talk about my Liberty Brothers Partnership. You see back before I realized he was fighting off a mental breakdown, I joined up with Matt on a number of blogging projects. He also inspired us to create Bongs-R-Us which was a blog where I talked about medical marijuana. We also sold cannabis accessories and T-Shirts. 

What are my comments of what I liked about the Liberty Brothers project? At the time I liked the idea of Matt & I being strong independent Libertarians. We could talk about the deficit I was learning about in economics and criticize our municipal government’s spending. For those who don’t know, Quinte West’s tourism spends were a hole from which no money would return until recently. With Canada’s Cannabis legalization the projection says tourism will increase in in Quinte West & Bay of Quinte. 

What was taking me out of it? I can’t let any family take the full blame for project failure or loss of focus in the past year. Although Matt getting motivated to do a single podcast would have been nice. It was not their fault entirely. Honestly my bubble has burst that social media advertising is not the income multiplier you might think it is. Followed by the fact I am happier letting my life be about my job at 10 Fitness and spending time with my boyfriend.

Liberty Brothers though was supposed to be this big promising blog though. We were going to write pro-Libertarian articles and do a podcast. What changed my mind? My step brother has no political attention span. He had to hop to the next new craze The People’s Party of Canada. At this point I went back to the party I most identified with… 

Now what do I do? I am living in Belleville Ontario now and seeking new website publishing and digital advertising projects. I am Ashton Deroy and I am hoping to build my name as a descent writer, marketer or voice. At this time I guess I am just searching for direction and purpose again.

To re-affirm my original political identity. I made my donation and got back to work in the party that is best suited to make a difference in Canada for the positive. Like the Liberals have made positive differences in gender politics, lgbtq causes & international relationships.   I mean the Liberal Party of Canada & Justin Trudeau. As much as it was cool to check out niche politics, we all know the adults pick real political parties with a chance of getting majority seats.
