Popular Porn Site Exposes Hypocrisy Of Anti-LGBT Laws In NC

They're calling 'BS' and have the facts to prove it.

A porn site with a conscience? It appears so. Pornography giant XHamster is making headlines for their recent protest against North Carolina's highly controversial new law, which mandates that transgender individuals use public restrooms that matches the gender they were assigned at birth, and disallows cities from passing any conflicting laws.

Entertainers like Bruce Springsteen have already begun protesting the law, and now pornography website XHamster is joining the fray by blocking users in North Carolina from accessing their site. The blackout began at 12:30 p.m. (EDT) Monday, and will continue until the law is repealed.

"We have spent the last 50 years fighting for equality for everyone and these laws are discriminatory, which XHamster.com does not tolerate," XHamster.com spokesman, Mike Kulich, said in a statement 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."

Kulich believes the law is hypocritical. "Back in March, we had 400,000 hits for the term 'Transsexual' from North Carolina alone," he continued. "People from that state searched 'Gay' 319,907 times."

According to Kulich, the black screen North Carolina users are currently being met with will soon replaced by a petition demanding the repeal of House Bill 2.
