Rod McPhee in his YEP column (January 3) 'Too old or too gay?' concludes that criticism of Elton John being a dad is because he is gay.
Mr McPhee should lose no sleep.
Elton John is extremely wealthy and will not face the day-to-day problems that most parents experience with their young.
Like most wealthy people, gay or not, he will employ staff to tender to his child's every need.
