  • Porn Site Bans North Carolina Users Due To LGBT Controversy

    Wow. First Bruce Springsteen cancels a concert, then Bryan Adams follows suit. Now the real hammer falls…a popular porn site has denied all voyeurs who reside in North Carolina access.

    North Carolina recently passed a law detailing the “Nondiscrimination”  state rules. It supersedes local ordinances and doesn’t give specific protection to the LGBT community.

    Since then, the LGBT supporters have been fit to be tied! Angry as ever, and they’re not gonna take it anymore.

    Details from the Huffington Post:

    There’s a new kink in North Carolina’s LGBT controversy: A popular porn website is banning all computers from “The Tar Heel State.”

    XHamster.com has been refusing to serve anyone from North Carolina since 12:30 p.m. EDT, Monday.

    Instead, users with a North Carolina IP address are just seeing a black screen on their computer — no porn.

    The extreme measures will stay in place until North Carolina repeals House Bill 2, a law passed on March 23 that effectively prevents cities and counties in the state from passing rules that protect LGBT rights.

    XHamster.com spokesman, Mike Kulich, said the website believes in equality for everyone.

    “We have spent the last 50 years fighting for equality for everyone and these laws are discriminatory which XHamster.com does not tolerate,” he said in an official statement sent to The Huffington Post. “Judging by the stats of what you North Carolinians watch, we feel this punishment is a severe one. We will not standby and pump revenue into a system that promotes this type of garbage. We respect all sexualities and embrace them.”

    Is canceling a concert or denying porn to the entire state an effective way to voice your dissent? Or are they a form of discrimination in themselves? Is it legal to block an entire state from porn access? Punish the whole group for the behavior of the government? Apparently so.

    Canceling the concert, Springsteen said, is “the strongest means I have for raising my voice in opposition to those who continue to push us backwards instead of forwards.”

    Kulich said he believes denying porn is the logical next step.

    “I think that porn has the power to do what Bruce Springsteen can’t,” he said.
