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.
Kulich told HuffPost that the company’s statistics show that North Carolinians are more open-minded — at least about their porn — 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,” he added.
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.
“Hopefully, it will get as many signatures as the ‘transsexual’ searches,” he said.

Oh that's what they say in public, but we all know those dirty old men huddle in the dark in their studies after their wives go to bed with only the computer screen lighting the room and, "Bow chika wow wow" music playing softly through the speakers.

Why do I get the feeling that the people who passed this law do not care if porn is blocked as a result of it?
Seems like a win/win for the religious nutters.
