Look it up, it [startx] was deprecated for quite some time.

Quoting from
https://www.debian.org/releases/stretch/amd64/release-notes/ch-whats-new.en.html

==========================================================================
* Only the gdm3 display manager supports running X as a non-privileged
   user in stretch. Other display managers will always run X as
   root. Alternatively, you can also start X manually as a non-root user
   on a virtual terminal via startx.

When run as a regular user, the Xorg log will be available from
~/.local/share/xorg/.

Looks supported to me.
