Bummer: Adult Video Website Supposedly Bans NC Citizens Over HB2

Yet another bunch of leftists who fail to understand the law itself. But, is this really about protesting?

(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.

Huh. Never heard of them. But, now that they’ve supposedly done this ban, and received some press, more people will have heard of the site, earning them more traffic. According to Alexa, they are #91 worldwide, with a drop of 18 due to declining views. Pornhub, which is probably more well known, at least per picture websites using the name for funny stuff, is number 66, and though own 2 in ranking, has seen increased traffic.

I gave typing in the address a try, and, I am not blocked as stated, and my IP is most certainly a North Carolina one. Nor does it block the playing of video. Could this simply be a traffic generating attempt?

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.”

See, they believe in tolerance and equality and not being discriminatory, so, they will not be tolerant, will discriminate against North Carolina porn watchers, and not allow equality for NC users.

Kulich said the website plans to replace the black screen currently seen by North Carolina porn buffs with a petition demanding the repeal of the law.

And they surely want everyone to go there for their adult video watching needs. Of course, they are engaged in questionable use of copyright law in hosting the videos. And, like most, fail to understand the bill. If they had operations in North Carolina, they would be free to allow TG folks to use the bathroom of their gender identity. That’s choice. Don’t liberals like choice anymore?

It’d be interesting to check the Alexa traffic for xhamster.com in a month or two, see if it has seen an increase.

    Haha
    Teach gets no more free porn from xHamster and all he can say to fight back is that maybe they are unlawfully using copywrite material
    That’s gotta hurt the Goo surely does give the impression they are always obsess and frustrated about that part of their existence
    You have the GOP gov of your neighboring state about to be forced to resign, and you have your firmer highest elected official and speaker of the Hiuse and numer 2 in line to be POTUS Denis Hastret pleading guilty to money laundry in an attempt to pay off one of his multiple gay child abuse victims from when he was a wrestling coach
    And now no more free porn
    Sadz

    It stands to reason that a porn site would want adult men to be able to go into women’s locker rooms, especially if they can take a few pictures or videos.

    But, hey, if the state legislature wishes to fight pornography, it’s simple: keep HB2 in place, and the porn companies will fight pornography for you!

  3. Could someone please translate John’s comment into adult English? I know it is asking quite a bit of you.

    • John says:

      Totes ? Noes ?
      Are we putting an end to non adult English
      Teach please forgive me I am only a high school grad I wasn’t a special snowflake who was fortunate enough to receive a college education
      Plus also I am driving a truck while trying to text when I can
      Maybe it would have been more understandable if I had simply pointed out how obsessed with sex social conservatives are. Totes obsessed ? Is that unacceptable

    Deutsch Bank has announced that they will put a freeze on the 250 jobs at its Cary location
    I guess the free market is speaking

    Let me translate that into plain English:

    Plus, I am also breaking the law and putting other people at risk.

    You’re welcome.

    Putting other people’s lives and property at risk
    while cheating his employer.
    Typical retarded liberal.
    It’s all about him and his feelings.

    The University of Toronto’s experiment with what you advocate and believe in:

    The administration at the University of Toronto was recently enlightened on why two separate washrooms are generally established for men and women sharing co-ed residencies.

    The University is temporarily changing its policy on gender-neutral bathrooms after two separate incidents of “voyeurism” were reported on campus September 15 and 19. Male students within the University’s Whitney Hall student residence were caught holding their cellphones over female students’ shower stalls and filming them as they showered.

    Still think gender neutral bathrooms are a good thing john?

    Or don’t you care about the rights and privacy of women?

    Is what you wrote “child English?” What kind of kids are you hanging out with because I don’t see that type of gibberish from kindergarteners.

    Teach please forgive me I am only a high school grad I wasn’t a special snowflake who was fortunate enough to receive a college education

    Wow. Talk about a disconnect. That fact that you are a high school grad speaks volumes about the (lack of) education given in liberal schooling.

    Maybe it would have been more understandable if I had simply pointed out how obsessed with sex social conservatives are.

    You’re the one that brought up the porn site.

    You really have no clue, do you?

    It’s also good to note that when over regulations are discussed here in this forum, john brings up how great regulations are.

    So while he is tooling down the road, breaking laws and regulations, he demonstrates that regulations are good for others, but not him.

    More side-effects cause some people to rethink their policy:

    U of Toronto:

    And a rapist used the transgender bathroom freedoms to rape two women:

    A sexual predator who falsely claimed to be transgender and preyed on women at two Toronto shelters was jailed indefinitely on Wednesday.
    Justice John McMahon declared Christopher Hambrook — who claimed to be a transgender woman named Jessica — was a dangerous offender.

    So John, this sounds like you approve of a businessperson’s right not to serve people they morally disagree with. Where have we heard that before?
