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.”

How do you feel about this?
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!"
Florida ended their statewide ban on same-sex marriage at the stroke of midnight Monday, and court clerks in some Florida counties wasted no time, issuing marriage licenses and performing weddings for same-sex couples overnight.
Are you in a rush to marry that special someone? Or would you rather remain a bachelor for life?
It’s important to have conversations with your partner about safer sex and healthy relationships, but that can be a lot easier said than done. Worried about how your new or existing guy is going to react? You’re not alone, many men have those fears.
What are your tips on how to get the conversation started?
Here are some suggestions other guys have found helpful in having these conversations:
Don’t wait until the heat of the moment to start talking about HIV. It’s better to talk about it earlier rather than later...certainly before you have sex.
Some men who are living with HIV have suggested that it helps to talk about their status early in the relationship. Disclosing you are HIV-positive after you've become close to someone can cause your partner to feel as though you have kept something important from him.
Don’t force it. Find the right time and place to have a conversation. You can schedule a time to talk or have spontaneous conversations in a setting where you are comfortable. A conversation does not have to be face-to-face. Whether you talk, type, or text what is important is that you start the conversation about HIV.
