Man oh man I'm going to sound like a prude but they should take off all the porn from the internet...sounds harsh and I get that people have the right to look at what they want but some of the porn and excessive violence that can be seen is just too much...

I remember when you could walk in the woods and there for some strange reason was an adult magazine...as if the forest said,,,take this magazine, it is part of our eco-system......

I believe you are referring to the Mississippi law. The NC law is only about bathrooms. I think it states that a person has to use the bathroom that corresponds with their birth sex.

It was discussed here...
www.abovetopsecret.com...

Basically it states that if you are born with a penis, you use the men's room. Vagina? Women's room.

NC's governor stated that that it prevent "women" with a penis from using the bathroom and taking showers with girls.

Sorry. There are just so many these days. It's hard to keep track of which is which. Apparently Tennessee just joined the club

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


The concept of "equal protection under the law" is blind like "Justice" and knows nothing of morality.

The concept of "equal protection under the law" came about because of unbalanced and boundless pseudo moral imposition, mostly by church state mentality, and rigid Victorian oppressive projection and judgment causing many to be disenfranchised from society on the pretense of moral outrage.

Considering most porn views are in the south.

This might make someone change things.

Agree or disagree, the representatives voted in by the people of North Carolina have spoken.

This movement, of these states all joining the "hate and fear club" through legislation, is just setting the stage for the "last straw" that will ultimately bring this issue of the LGBTQ community's plight of equality to the Supreme Court, again, where, I believe, they will have to rule that LGBTQ are a protected class and that will be end. LGBTQ equality will then be "Law of the Land".

Yep. Then cue another summer of the religious pretending like their religion is under attack and senselessly whining because they have to legally be nice to others.

Yeah. But SCOTUS is just as biased as any fatass senator from "pick-your-state" so whatever comes from them is dubious at best.

This is entirely idealogical and totally intangible. Where in the world might I see something called "blind justice"? Can you show me where that is?

I'm not trying to derail this thread, but blind justice doesn't actually exist in the world. It's abstract and impossible, just like unbalanced and boundless pseudo moral imposition (sic).

Replace "blind justice" with "reason" and there'd be a decent argument. Reason is indeed blind to human stupidity, and reason is what I'm seeing a fatal scarcity of right now.

Thought I would post the other side of the argument. Some of what North Carolina was trying to prevent. Men in women's bathrooms.

Also why are people so worked up about gay rights. Religious rights are enumerated in the Constitution. Why should they bow to gay rights?

There is no such thing as 'gay rights' or 'religious rights' enumerated in the Constitution, the Constitution enumerates rights available to all.

In court rooms around the country on daily basis.

If you'd bother to learn the political leanings of the current justices you'd see that you are wrong and the court is currently evenly balanced. But hey, you are just looking for ammo to use so you have something to complain about when these bills ultimately get overturned for being unconstitutional.

I doubt it. What I do think is that in North Carolina the most common Google search term for the next few weeks may well be "IP proxy".

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.



You don't really believe that, do you? The types who pass these laws are the types to feteshize transwomen and secretly watch gay porn. Or any porn, for that matter. I mean, look at all the extreme anti-gay public figures who get caught with male escorts...

That's one of the reasons I say it is balanced or at least more balanced than some backwoods state politician. It's not all liberal leaning rulings that have been passed down.

The are thousands of porn sites out there so I doubt this will stop anyone in NC from watching porn but this is still funny as hell. LOL!

Let's hope other companies/people follow suit to give these people a taste of their own medicine and show them just how disrespectful it is to refuse someone service based on religion/race/sexual preference.

Hopefully this is the first snow falling ahead of an avalanche.
