About

Twink Death, also spelled Twinkdeath, is a slang term used to describe the point in time when a person who used to be a twink can no longer be considered one due to aging or becoming masculine. Used in discussions on 4chan since the mid-2010s and analogous to the similar term "gay death," the slang expression achieved mainstream recognition in December 2022 as it spread on Twitter.

Origin

The term "twink death" has appeared in conversations on 4chan's /lgbt/ board since at least the mid-2010s and has been used to refer to a period of time when a former twink (a homosexual male with attractive, boyish qualities) is no longer considered one due to aging, becoming more masculine or otherwise losing their boyish appearance. For example, on December 10th, 2016, an anonymous user started a thread in /lgbt/[1] in which they discussed using medication to "push off twink death" (shown below, left). On November 23rd, 2018, a 4chan[2] user described "twink death" as a consequence of testosterone levels increasing over age (shown below, right).

Will bicalutamide/casodex do that for me? Keep me feminine without the breast growth? I like my manly breasts and I'm not trans. Report Anonymous Fri 23 Nov 2018 18:45:18 No.11165292 >>11163537 This is a glass half full representation at best. Twink death/gay death is a real thing, that usually sets in around early to mid-late 20s. It's not just "aging" in and of itself, but aging on T. Testesterone given enough time will alter your facial fat and musculature into something much more masculine. Take a look at FTM's that have just started T vs 2-3 years later, they often look quite different solely from the changes T brings to their face. This is what happens with cute "femboys/traps/whatever" given enough time, and the only way to prevent it is through hormones. For the record, I'm not advising anyone to go on hormones unless they're ok with the side effects (notably, breast development, though it can be removed costs money). Everyone ages, yes, but it's more about continuing to look feminine and not balding/getting body hair all over/getting that male fat buildup and musculature that happens with time/etc. Not to push HRT, it's not just a "cute pill" to be taken for funsies, but if you think you achieve the same effects with diet and skincare, you're really quite wrong.

Spread

The term saw an increase in prevalence on the /lgbt/ board in 2020 when it appeared in multiple threads, including opening posts. For example, on April 24th, 2020, a user started a thread[3] about "accepting twink death" (shown below, left). On May 7th, 2020, a user inquired[4] how much time he had left until twink death (shown below, right).

The term became even more widespread in late 2022 as it spread to Twitter and Reddit. For example, on January 20th, 2022, Redditor VoelsprierPoes made a post titled "Twinkdeath and it's consequences" on the /r/feminineboys[5] subreddit, where it gained over 180 upvotes in one year. On May 4th, 2022, Twitter[6] user @gaypilled posted a screenshot of a 4chan thread, commenting, "how it sounds hearing people complaining about twink death." The tweet gained over 110 retweets and 2,000 likes in six months (shown below, left).

On November 29th, 2022, Twitter user @wholesomeduos posted a Catboy artwork originally created by @sssamico, commenting, "twinkdeath." The post (shown below, right), gained over 1,000 retweets and 13,200 likes on Twitter in one month, helping to popularize the term.

The real problem seems to me that some people can't take care of their appearance after the grace period granted by puberty where it is significantly easier to have a good look.

Like, you don't HAVE to have a horrific hairline, a scraggly beard, or become fat, you just need to stop believing you can just leave it up to your own biology.

You can't stay a twink forever, but you can be handsome as fuck anyways.
