    Previous Episode Previous Episode 15. DADDIES, ULTIMATUMS, AND THE WORD "FAGGOT" 00:00 / 01:04 Tags #Daddies #Thruples #Faggot #ConflictResolution #LGBTQHistoryMonth #RodneyWilson #Teachers #ComingOut Share Two questions are about Daddies: One listener wants to join a thruple with two older men, but is perplexed about their “live-in boyfriend”. Another question is from a 50 yr old listener who is getting lots of attention from younger guys, and wants to know whether or not to embrace being a Daddy. The other two questions deal with resolving conflict: In the first, Tommy and Ben help a listener who's struggling with a conservative landlord that plans to kick him out if he campaigns for Biden and Harris. Our final question is from a listener in California who wants her boyfriend to stop saying the word “faggot”. Guncle of the Week is Rodney Wilson, a Missouri high school teacher who created Gay History Month (now LGBTQ History Month) while teaching in St Louis in the 90s.
