Profile: Hawk

You can call me… Hawk

I identify as… Androgynous, self-confident, aloof, sensual, silly, a party-disdaining political activist, revolutionary, social commentator, artist, naturalist, writer, empath, and geek.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … Keep ’em female please. I’m not lesbian or trans (though I’m intrigued by anyone and everyone), I just can’t be bothered with the traditional definitions of gender roles. Give me a sundress on Monday and combat boots on Wednesday. Don’t put me in a box. I don’t fit.

I’m attracted to… Sparkling intelligence, artists, writers, poets, smokers, nonconformity, passion, tasteful tattoos, callused hands, ironic good-natured vulgarity, the nape of the neck and the smell of clean sweat.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Try to understand me without trying to define me or control me, and I will extend them the same courtesy.

I want people to understand… That empathy and nonjudgemental understanding are the heart of compassion; compassion is the only thing that can save the world.


About Hawk
Just a little [read: short] Spanglish-speaking Irish-American novelist in small-town America. I camp, make stirfries, and hang out watching Dexter with my similarly ambiguous roommate.
