Thirsty for Troye

milkboys Comedy & Satire Leave a Comment

“I want Troye Sivan’s jawline to cut me into fries” is just one of the many interesting things fans want Troye Sivan to do to them.  In a new episode of “Thirst Tweets” the singer reads some hilarious and rather specific fantasies that fans had about him, and Troye really has no clue how to respond…

By the way, someone tweeted, “I wish Troye Sivan could murder my ass, but he’s already a bottom,” to which Troye replied, “Not true, but whatever”…

“Revelation” from Boy Erased

Troye Sivan and Sigur Rós frontman Jónsi have released “Revelation” from the soundtrack of the gay conversion therapy drama Boy Erased. The film, adapted from the memoir by Garrard Conley, stars Lucas Hedges, Nicole Kidman, and Russell Crowe as well as Troye.

Boy Erased recounts Arkansas native Conley’s life growing up in a religious home and being sent away to gay conversion therapy, an ordeal he would survive but which would drastically affect his life.

Troye spoke to Stephen Colbert in September about learning of the experience boys who enter gay conversion “therapy” go through: “The thing that was most hurtful about it… I remember being so relieved – I’m gay by the way – when I came out to myself, because I was like ‘it’s not something I can change. It’s not something I have to fight any more. It’s just something I have to navigate and accept.’ And so that was the big moment for me, and the second that these kids or sometimes adults arrived at these camps, that was taken away from them and they were told immediately, ‘no, you weren’t born like this. this is a God-shaped hole that you’re trying to fill with these homosexual tendencies.’”

Imagining being 15 again when I was at my most vulnerable, and having that put back on me and being set up with that impossible task of trying to change this thing that ultimately is unchangeable, it’s just one of the most damaging things I can imagine. And so I really hope that the movie is going to speak to – I really want to communicate with parents as to just how much your reaction to your kid coming out can really change their lives.”

Study finds people who are trans are likely “born that way” indeed

milkboys News 12 Comments

A new study that was published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism suggests that there may be a link between being transgender and a person’s genetic makeup. Researchers looked at 380 trans women as well as 344 non-transgender men in Australia and the United States, studying connections between gender dysphoria and a dozen sex hormone signalling genes.

They found a “significant association” between several genes and gender dysphoria, implying a strong likelihood that transgender people are different from non-transgender people at a genetic level. The research backs up other studies that point to a biological component to transgender identity, including a study from May that shows that brain activity in transgender adolescents is strongly similar to that in those of the sex they identify with.

Studies like this also reinforce the point that transgender activists have long put forth: trans people are not “mentally ill,” but are indeed the sex they identify with, not that which their physical body may display.

Trans Teen vs Aussie PM

milkboys News 7 Comments

A 13-year-old trans boy has challenged Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison on national TV about his recent “gender whisperers” tweet. On Wednesday, Morrison responded to a report saying teachers were being taught how to help potentially transgender students by tweeting that schools don’t need “gender whisperers” and we should “let kids be kids”.

“Let kids be kids? That’s exactly what we are doing… and a lot of that is letting children be themselves,” counsellor  Dr Elizabeth Riley said about Morrison’s remarks.

Morrison went on to appear on a TV show on Thursday where the panel played a video of “one young viewer”. You can see the exchange at the 4 minute mark in the video below:

“My name is Evie Macdonald, I’m 13 years old and I’m a transgender kid. And this is what I want to say to the prime minister,” Evie said. “There are thousands of kids in Australia that are gender diverse. We don’t deserve to be disrespected like that through tweets from our prime minister.”

Evie said she knew “what it’s like to be on the receiving end of attitudes like this”. “I went to a Christian school where I had to pretend to be a boy and spent weeks in conversion therapy. We get one childhood and mine was stolen from me by attitudes like this.”

Morrison said before that he has no issue with kids going through the torture of “gay conversion” camps.
