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.
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.”
According to the spokesperson folks from North Carolina are not nearly as uptight as this new law might indicate, sharing that there were 400,000 hits for the term "transsexual" and 319,907 hits for the term "gay," in March alone.
Losing Bruce Springsteen concert was bad, but losing access to gay porn might be the thing that makes North Carolina cry "Uncle."
Or whatever other safe word those kinky bastards might choose.
