White Castle Takes Reservations for All of Us

18 Feb

A quick little lesson on how sometimes, people listen and sometimes, people make changes for the better.

John Todd saw a Valentine’s Day ad for White Castle which read: “Call now to reserve your table at White Castle and your place in her heart.”  Not quite sure where one can find a White Castle that takes reservations, but I digress. Being the self-respecting gay man he is, John sent an email to White Castle as he felt the ad discriminated against gay men. “The original ad insisted that it was for at least one woman involved in the relationship.  It was great for two lesbian women but it didn’t include two gay men,” he said.

Within 24 hours of shooting an email with his concerns, a supervisor at White Castle responded to let John know that they changed the ad to read: “Call now to reserve your table at White Castle and your place in their heart,” making it gender neutral.

This just goes to show you that standing up for ourselves – even in the simplest ways, can bring about change. Great work, John – keep it up!
