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!"
