…well “the new york times”,
of all things,
seems to think so.
according to the article,
twinks are becoming trendy.
this is what they’re pushing now…
But the latest twinks — many of whom are straight — are what you might call “art twinks,” building upon an aesthetic legacy established by Ryan McGinley’s turn-of-the-millennium photographs of the sloppily skinny, or last decade’s leather-pant-clad Saint Laurent models chosen by the designer Hedi Slimane. And yet they are more culturally mainstream: a growing cohort of famous (and famously small) boys who stand in opposition to the lumbering, abusive oafs who have been dominating this year’s headlines.
Consider, for example, Tye Sheridan, the 21-year-old lead in “Ready Player One” — and one of few action heroes who won’t be busting out of his T-shirt anytime soon. Or the rising star Lucas Hedges, also 21, whose acting exudes anti-alpha softness. Christopher Nolan’s 2017 World War II epic “Dunkirk” was an ensemble showpiece of British twinkiness; “Love, Simon,” starring Nick Robinson, 23, is the American suburban version.
Female body types have always cycled in and out of style; yet with men, alternatives to the ideal of imposing physicality have usually been ignored or lampooned. But as women continue to use their voices to undo that legacy of toxic masculinity, a different kind of change is taking place from within the culture: These twinks, after all, aren’t just enviably lean boys or the latest unrealistic gay fantasy, but a new answer to the problem of what makes a man.
here i go gaining some weight,
getting meat all on my tail and thighs,
and now i’m “out of season” according to society.
can i win?
twinks seem to be the new trend in black gay porn too…
Is the “new york times” onto something?
i had to wonder…
Work Out Warriors are out; The Age of Twinks are in?
lowkey: these ig personal trainers would DIE if they come home,
walk in the bedroom,
and some straight twink is re-arranging their vixen’s guts.
