Well, guys, we did it. We're officially a trend. Or so says, the New York Times. In their December 2018 article, https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/28/style/daddy-dads-of-2018.html?smid=ny..., they explored the growing popularity surrounding the term "Daddy" and the type of guys associated with it.

But to all of us, who have been apart of the Daddyhunt community for years or sought it out more recently, we know the joys that come with being a Daddy and being attracted to Daddies. Articles like these come and go, and if it gives more attention to the Daddy crowd we’re all for it, but we just want to be clear that "Year of the Daddy” is not a new and growing trend. And more importantly, it's not something that's going anywhere either. It's always been a part of our community and we’d venture to say it always will be. And we are thankful for that.

This article does echo something we’ve been pointing out for years, which is that "Daddy" can mean any number of things depending on who you talk to. So, if this article makes someone feel more secure with the moniker or allow them to really own who they are, then that's what we call progress.

And, just for ol' times sake, what is your definition of a Daddy?

Some longtime DC Comics fans were in for a treat this week after it was announced that the television series Arrow had cast actor Echo Kellum to play an openly gay version of Michael Holt, also known as Mister Terrific, a black superhero. Introduced in 1997, Mister Terrific is a genius millionaire with 14 doctorate degrees and a gold medal in the Olympic decathlon.

Mister Terrific joins openly bisexual Sara Lance (Canary, played by Caity Lotz) as the show's queer characters, part of a deliberate effort by its creators to introduce LGBT characters into the world of TV superheroes. Series co-creator Greg Berlanti, who is also openly gay, said as much earlier this year to the Advocate. "The network has been very welcoming and they realize the younger generation doesn't really have issues with that kind of stuff," he says. "They don't really see [being LGBT] as a negative. There's a lot more understanding, openness and compassion around this issue today and that's a great thing."

Do you think TV audiences will be accepting of this level of diversity in comics?

Intergenerational relationships are extremely common in the gay community, the social stigmas and stereotypes having almost been entirely relegated to the past. But when does a man become a Daddy? Is there a certain age... a certain look... or maybe a certain maturity level? Or is being a Daddy a state of mind? What do you think?

Outsports became the first LGBT publication to ever be credentialed by the NFL for the Super Bowl. Gay sportswriter Cyd Zeigler talks how fitting it was that a team from the first state to have same-sex marriage would win the Super Bowl the first time a gay publication was credentialed by the NFL with full access to the players, coaches and the game.

Congratulations Cyd! It's about time NFL. Is anybody surprised it took them this long?

The Supreme Court has agreed to finally resolve the national debate over same-sex marriage. The justices will consider four cases from Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee, consolidated and heard together. They will hear 2 1/2 hours of oral arguments in April and and issue a ruling in late June.

What do you think the outcome of this historic ruling will be?

Yesterday twins Aaron and Austin Rhodes came out to their father at the same time and posted the touching video on YouTube. The twins live in a different state from their Dad so they called him on the phone to break the news.

Did you come out to your Dad? What was his reaction?

Father Martin Dolan came out as gay last weekend during a sermon in which he supported equal marriage rights for same-sex couples in the Republic of Ireland, where a vote on the issue is slated for May. “I’m gay myself,” he said. The Dublin archdiocese declined comment on the matter pending discussion with Dolan, who is away on a previously scheduled vacation, reports the Belfast Telegraph. One of the congregants said, “We are all very proud of Father Martin. Because he has admitted that he is gay he doesn't change the person that he was before it.”

Carl Sandler, CEO of Daddyhunt, has strong words for recent critics of the announcement by Stephen Fry, 57, and Elliot Spencer, 27, that they are planning to marry.

“What's all the fuss? There are millions - yes millions - of intergenerational relationships in the gay community and many of these started out on Daddyhunt. It's all about the experience, not the age.

Congrats to Elliott and Stephen for showing us that love knows neither gender nor age. Gay men have spent decades fighting for our right to love one another without judgement. Anyone who would deny that to Elliott and Stephen are dealing with a legacy of homophobia that says gay men are only interested in youth and physical perfection. To even question why a younger man would fall in love with someone as handsome and distinguished as Fry is narrow minded.

When people find out that I’m the CEO of Daddyhunt, one of the first assumptions they make is that younger gay men who date older are just gold diggers. We have hundreds of thousands of younger men who appreciate older men, both physically and mentally. Not everyone chases an image of themselves. Thank God! I say, congrats for Elliot and Stephen!"
