Three letters...VPN...problem solved.
Don't want to use a VPN, try one of the gazillion other porn sites.
The other sites won't "do it for you?" Make your own.

I imagine if any man on Tobacoo Road is saying anything about this it would be "A Southern man don't need YOUR porn around, anyhow!"

Wow! Just a tad hyperbolic today aren't we? All this over a bunch of perverts not getting their porn? Or is a privately owned company not allowed to exercise its right to protest acts of government?


You mean by discriminating?

Aren't private businesses bound by law to serve all equally at all times?

Lol, funny how that works isn't it?

Didn't think about it being discriminating.

Yes, there are a lot of porn sites and it's nice to see people take a stand for what they believe in.

Just like there are plenty of pastry shops to have a cake made, not just the ones that refuse service to LGTBSQ9er's.

One pastry shop refuses service to one couple and the Country loses its mind. A porn site refuses service to an entire State and it's all "hell yeah, stick it to the man".

I don't understand the hypocrisy?

Not under this law. Even government employees aren't required to serve the LGBTQ community.

That didnt take long... lot of judgment being thrown at people that had nothing to do with this law being passed...Other than they live in the state. Its a shame so many people have lost the ability to debate a subject without name calling at some group that offended them in some way.

Its a stupid law, and companies are taking steps to let the law makers they don't approve, good on them... snarky comments made against large groups of people are typically considered to be a bad practice. (especially when less than 1% of the population probably had a hand in making the law)

To those taking shots at Catholics... quick google showed only about 10% of North Carolina is Catholic, way to swing and miss there guys and gals.

I have no problem with an Atheist not believing, sure wish more atheists would lay off people having faith.

I didn't hear about any laws requiring a business to sell its product in all 50 states.

We may not see a huge public outcry as they're hoping for. Many, if not most, of those surfing porn sites are not going to come out and admit they're pissed over missing their fap fest. It will come as anonymous petitions and calls to the complaint lines. If anyone wants to hit'em a little harder, here's a site that tells what's made in North Carolina and you can just boycott their products.

I think it's great. I wish I could move to North Carolina. I'd prefer not to have LGBT porn, Bruce Springsteen, or any of the other liberal morality police who think they know anything about equal rights.

This is hysterical. North Carolina has really stepped in it. Lots of companies are opting out of the state.

1 porn site banned them, what about the other 260 billion of them?

I wish companies and people that think they have clout, would be as assertive and vocal, about the real ills that plague this country.

Maybe then such superficial and easily solved problems would not be problems.


Easy fix, and the one they probably want to push anyway:

Individual pay toilets.

Look a few steps ahead.

Our future will have us paying through the nose for everthing they have convinced us that we have to have. It will make it so much easier to control us when they throw in making us pay for the we breathe.

We have passed the stage of just being gullible, we are in a full downward slide straight into stupid.

You may not think this law is a problem, but many people are seeing it as a cause for many future societal ills. Just because it doesn't effect you too much doesn't mean it isn't a problem that needs addressing.

Unless of course they stand for something you disagree with.

Of course not.

Which will give others opportunities. My guess is that it works out for NC.

I also still fail to see how these laws are "Anti-LBGT". You guys want special rights, not equal right.

A law that exists for the sole purpose to allow people to discriminate against LGBT people by letting them not have to serve LGBT's for things ranging from service work to government work all under the pretenses of "religious freedom" and you can't see how that is anti-LGBT? Lol. Yeah right.

If someone made the same "religious freedom" bill but made it apply to blacks instead of LGBT's what would you say about that? And don't pretend like I'm being hyperbolic either. Those laws used to exist in this country.

Modern porn is pretty useless, imo, because they are using wrecked cars (transexuals)
increasingly in place of normal whores. It's no longer 'safe' to be exposed to it.
Therefore this move ought to be welcomed by
the state. There's plenty of vintage stuff to go around, and unless you are planning to engage the
actors personally, I see no reason to worry.

But I know you'd fix all these issues, krazy, were you in charge.

Since these companies are true paragons of morality


This isn't about morality. You can't legislate morality.

This is about equality and equal protection under the law.


The idea of equal protection under the law sprung from morality, dude. It isn't actually a practical or self-evident concept, it's something that came about because of moral qualms.

So yeah, it is about morality. Or rather, people trying to project an image of morality where there is really none.
