My name is Matthias (ma-THY-us) or Mars for short. My pronouns are they/them and he/him, though I'm comfortable with it/its as well.

I am transgender, genderqueer, nonbinary, and transmasculine. The term ectogender describes my relationship with gender very well. Bigender may also apply, if the masculine and neutral aspects of my gender are taken to be distinct and separate rather than combined.

When it comes to my orientation, I generally just describe myself as queer. I am both bisexual and asexual. There are several more specific aspec terms I use to describe my attraction (or lack thereof), as well as the term achillean.

Politically I am a leftist, with an anarcho-communist tendency. I'm currently learning more about Marxism though I'm not sure I'd describe myself as a Marxist because I see it as more of an analytical tool...
