    There’s a new kink in North Carolina’s LGBT controversy: A popular porm 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 porm.

    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.”

    Kulich told HuffPost that the company’s statistics show that North Carolinians are more open-minded — at least about their porm — than laws like HB2 might suggest.

    “Back in March, we had 400,000 hits for the term ‘Transsexual’ from North Carolina alone,” he said. “People from that state searched ‘Gay’ 319,907 times,”

      Men and women would actually have more sex with each other?

        the youth of NC might begin leading a somewhat less sexualized existence?

        Hurt them in their wallets (Springsteen) and take away their porn. Brilliant! :bananadance2:

          I wonder if they block out IP addresses from the Middle East, India, Russia, Singapore, Jamaica, Barbados, Africa, or a bazillion other places where gays are treated far worse than North Carolina.

            I'm sure the 46 people going to see Bruce Springsteen were so upset.

              Yeah, but, you must respect the right of Islamists to drop homosexuals off buildings.

              And don't forget the Crusades.

              So you support Springsteen's right to deny service to people based on his closely held beliefs?

                And people buying wedding cakes can't get their money back? Or take their money elsewhere?

                  I could give a sh*t about wedding cakes. This isn't about wedding cakes. This is about singling out trans people over a completely and utterly baseless and unfounded fear of the boogeyman putting on a dress and going into a bathroom to rape unsuspecting women.

                  Hypocrisy is great here.

                  Think the law was stupid though.

                  Such a crap example and you know it.

                  If he had a store in NC where he sang every day at 12PM for anyone in the store who paid an entrance fee and hung a sign up that said "no Christians" you'd have a leg to stand on. That's not what is happening here.

                  Come on, Bammer, you know Christians are truly the oppressed ones here.
