No preferred pronouns.

In support for others’ pronoun preferences, I offer this honest answer.

Because I present as cis-male, saying “he/him/his” would be an easy pro forma gesture of respect. But it truly doesn’t matter what pronouns others use to refer to me. (If you want to switch from third to second person, we can talk. My favourite personal pronoun is você – “you” in Portuguese.)

My non-preference refracts privilege. I need expend no effort to assert or maintain my apparent position at the lowest energy point of the landscape. Beyond that – as a shy, retiring person – I have little interest in contributing to “my” public images. To the extent that I can influence you in this, I decline to do so. Assume and speak as you will.
