That is most certainly headcanon. There is certainly a way that Trolls differ by gender, hence females having mammary mounds.

The slurry doesn't seem like a natural part of troll reproduction- there's no way this species was born to have robots beat them up unless they splooge into a bucket, likely that's just a way to control the population. Also, John and Terezi do it in the Epilogues, which could imply some form of analogous parts.
That is entirely fair, I frequently confuse headcanon and actual canon lol but that begs the question- why do the Mother Grubs exist? Were they naturally part of troll reproduction from the start or were they inserted into the cycle? If not, are they artificially-created beings or do they just happen to be genetically compatible with Trolls and someone saw an opportunity? I personally assumed they just bred in the same way as bees before the drones were part of the process.

As for John and Terezi, we do know that Trolls have anuses, so- yanno. *shrug* Could go either way lmao

One of my favorite headcanons is that the Mother Grubs are the biological females of the troll species, and both male and female trolls are biologically "Male"--when it comes to reproduction at least. "Male" and "female" trolls are just different kinds of male trolls.

The Mother Grub could also be like queen bee, and the rest of the trolls are like drones and workers.

On the subject of troll boobs: If the only difference between male and female trolls are chest sacks, would that mean that trolls wouldn't know that they're girls until troll puberty? :what:

It's the only known difference between male and female trolls. Given how cartoony the art of the trolls is, we can't really say for certain what other differences are, though maybe female trolls typically grow longer hair or have fuller lips?

Regardless, we know of a singular way to distinguish between male and female trolls, so the boobas must have SOME biological reason for existing. Whether that be extra protection around the chest area (maybe without them female trolls could just get punched wrong and instantly die?) or for attracting mates (they are a very romance-focused species, despite how violent they are) or maybe they're just venom sacs, or where they store their genetic material (try not to think about it.)

They could be vestigial. Like instead of losing function for the appendix they lost function for the tit - however, it's still a secondary sexual characteristic, so Trolls often choose partners with nice tits, so they haven't evolved out of the gene pool yet.
whose behind all that facial hair? surely it can't be luigi, that guy disappeared a long time ago

That just makes me think Troll tibbies are like colorful feathers on birds, and frankly I am going to run with this idea for the rest of my life. You cannot tell me otherwise, this is my new canon.

Troll boobs sound like maracas when you shake them around. They're used in troll mating dances :cal:
