    Hello, I'm Hedon.

    I've been a lurker here for a while, what made me chose this time to be an active member I don't know. First of all, to clear up my name, I'm not hedonistic (far from it), and I didn't chose the name with the dictionary meaning in mind. The explanation is much simpler than that. In 2008 when I created my YouTube account I was listening to Tupac's "The Don Killuminati: 7 day theory," in one of the songs he said "Makavelli the Don...Tupac Shakur," and the name just clicked..."the don" rhymes with "Hedon"...there's something masculine-sounding about it, hence the name.

    Not that it matters but if you guessed my race to be black from that short explanation you guessed right. I'm black, and I'm a thinking male. If you've been around a while you might have come across my post under videos of giants like Barbarossa, MWM, Coltaine, Paul Proteus, CS Mgtow, Spetz, and so on, or you've come across couple of my articles on Barbarossa's defunct website "SheddingoftheEgo."

    1. Relationship history (experience with women, red pills, what about it made you made you aware; note- you don't HAVE to have had relationships but you can speak of your interactions with women) -- it turns out trolls don't have good, realistic stories of this ilk.

    I was born in Nigeria, me and my family came to America when I was 10. My relationship with women was up and down (more downs than up). I'm proud to say I was never "the ladies man" or a "don juan." I had my fair share of short term relationships with women, nothing long term or longer than 2 years. This is due to my encounter with redpill early in life coupled with my overall pessimistic view on existence itself, which I'd explain later. As a boy in Nigeria I was staying with my grandma, and my aunt who was in her early to mid twenties at the time, was also living with us. After having her fun and was getting ready to settle down I remember there were two suitors, one guy was your average bad boy, no solid career, running the street at times, not that much prospect. The other guy I remember was a good dude, had a career, makes money, very respectful, would buy things for me and my brother every time he came by, a perfect gentlemen. I noticed she would avoid the good guy at all cost but made room for this insufferable pos bad boy. I remember on several occasions she would even allow the bad boy to spend the night despite my grandma's protest. Long story short, she ended up marrying the bad boy (shocker!). It wasn't long after that he started drinking hard and beating her ass and their kids almost on the daily basis. This was my first dose of redpill as a boy. I didn't affix this behavior to women but the seed was planted and I started paying attention.

    In high school I was a quiet kid that fell in love with Wrestling. This was the attitude era and wrestling helped me deal with the huge culture shock. I was too focused on that to be worried about getting girls, however I was noticing how my friends would buy girls things only to be spurned for other boys. This is the inner city high school where it's not uncommon to see girls getting groped and fingered during class, girls giving handjob during class, and various other lurid behaviors. I had few relationships that didn't go anywhere and I found when I interact with women I always had to don a clown-suit and do the ridiculous dance of making them laugh in order for them to like me. I wasted a lot of money on name-brand clothes, jewelries, hats, shoes, and other nonsense. Those things got me laid but it was at such a high financial and sanity cost. Despite my few successes I knew the lifestyle wasn't for me. Something just never felt right with it. I started gravitating towards the other world that was calling me. My junior year in high school, I remember my old history teacher Mr. Sarich detained me after class and said "I've been observing you, you're nothing like these other kids around here, you like to read don't you?" I nodded yes, then he said "I got something for you." He looked in his bag and handed me a small book "The contender," and told me to keep it. That book changed my life, and I still have it sitting among over 400 books I currently own. I found out last December Mr. Sarich died. I owe the man a great deal, perhaps my life. RIP, sir.

    2. Awareness
    : your blue pill perspectives, how you transitioned to red pill, with enough detail about what brought you to MGTOW.

    I continued to have relationships, casual sex at times, but women were becoming less and less my focus. I was observing how more and more promiscuous women were becoming, how unfeeling they can be, how the evidence presented me contrast greatly to the image of women I was painted as a kid. One day in 2011 (I think), I typed "All women are Whores" in google search engine and I clicked on a link that took me to a thread titled "All women are Whores." The guy basically stated that all women are whores, no exception, his mom and all women in his family included. His courage, which I now admire, to not exclude even his mother stuck out to me the most. That post got over a thousand replies from women and their white knights all spewing disparaging comments at this guy. I don't remember reading one comment in agreement or support, instead it was shaming and hate. He didn't backtrack either, he stood his ground and was inflexible in his position. I love men with conviction and it held my attention enough to read through the entire thread. My curious nature was stimulated, from then on I began to search the net of related topics. This is when I came across Barbarossa and rest was history. While I was getting my MGTOW lesson on youtube and in life, I was also being fed knowledge about women from great men like Charles Bukowski, Louis Ferdinand Celine, Arthur Schopenhauer, and so on.

    3. Who you are
    : tell us a little bit of who you are. What you like, what you do, etc.

    Well, I currently stay in the city of Chicago. I'm an RN. The worst profession anyone, especially a man, especially a MGTOW minded man, can go into is nursing. Female dominated indeed and being in this shitty field gives me an advantage over a lot of men because I'm the unfortunate bastard with the front row seat to the most abject lurid behavior of women almost on the daily basis. If you think women are bad, they are 1000x worse,...only if you have the unfortunate position to deal with these beast on the daily basis for years like I have. The plan is to use this society, save up enough money, endure the BS, and move another country.

    I currently live a minimalist lifestyle. If you enter my two bedroom apartment you wouldn't think so but I do. I set up my apartment so beautifully but there's a reason behind it. It's not because of anybody but me. My reasoning was if this is the place I'd be spending most of my time (and I do spend most of my time indoors), I want it to be a place I'd not only love coming to but a place I couldn't wait to get to. And everything in it is to my taste. I'm a very introverted person, my primary hobby is books...love to read, especially philosophical books. I own four boa constrictors, all of which are getting bigger by the day. I take walks every now and again, love to cook, and I love to exercise. Working out for me isn't something I do, it's a lifestyle. I've always been very active since I was a boy and physical fitness has always been part of my life. I own few gym equipment and a treadmill at home so as to avoid having to endure the BS men deal with at gyms like planet fitness. Most importantly, it is a priority to my to feed the mind as well as the body. Thanks for having me.

    Hi Hedon,

    Yours is in interesting Intro.

    the inner city high school where it's not uncommon to see girls getting groped and fingered during class, girls giving handjob during class, and various other lurid behaviors.
    Wow. I was never exposed to this.

    I found out last December Mr. Sarich died. I owe the man a great deal, perhaps my life. RIP, sir.
    It's a blessing that he took notice of you and made such a difference in your life.

    I own four boa constrictors, all of which are getting bigger by the day.
    Huh? LOL. Ok, I gotta ask. How did you get interested in them? Did it start in Nigeria? Do you get reactions from any people who drop by to visit?

    Thanks for the reply. Snakes has always been fascinating to me...here's a creature with no appendages of any kind, yet move so gracefully. I especially love their solitary nature. I went to carnival back in the day where I met this guy who let me held it for while. It was an experience. I've been contemplating getting one for a while, and then I read D.H Lawrence' poem "Snake," that did it.
