Adult site blocks North Carolina's access in response to anti-gay legislation. Okay now things just got real.

Courtesy of HuffPo: 

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.

    Those hits were probably just used for "research".

      Yes, just verifying that the images were indeed porn. Protecting the citizens' rights, don'tcha know. Can't have them charging for non-porn content.

      Oh, it's really OK; Ted's web site wasn't blocked even though it might be considered political porn.

    So... just to be clear, they're punishing the state's rejection of the gay community by... rejecting the gay community of that state?

    Maybe they should Blick everything *butt* LGBT porn.

      Not very bright are you? Do you think with that many clicks that it's only gays living out openly? Nope, most of those clicks are from the people supporting this law and maybe even from the people that voted for it.

      Balzafiar,
      LOL!!! So true!
      Its their "Religious freedum" to watch porn! Wonder if a Congressman will say they are being "bullies"?
      So much for that, I don't know why these pious sanctimonious asshats don't ban porn? The people who stream the porn THEY know EXACTLY who's watching...and its not the gays!

    The Devil retaliates and gets himself some good publicity. Publicity that will be useful in Utah and all the other pious Red States.

  10. LOL. I'd like to see more companies of any kind jump on this band wagon.

    Who knew a porn site would be the first.

      Agreed. It'd be simple for Facebook or Twitter to block access to their sites for a week in protest.

    For a moment I thought about how blocking NC from looking at gay porn might impact Kevin Swanson, but -- big relief -- he's in Colorado. No less of a bigot, though.

    I hate to inform you all of this since a lot will jump to the wrong conclusion, but xhamster is one of the LARGEST porn sites on the net. They cover almost EVERYTHING, so the gay side is a TINY portion!

    Oh my! No porn is quite a price to pay for being stupid. Now, they should make them send a selfie with their birth certificate and present license, to compare the sex listed on both, and add it to the splash page for the site.
