O Fortuna, you have blessed me with a truly Prytanian piece of news:

XHamster just delivered a serious money shot on the North Carolina legislature.

Users from the Tar Hell State began complaining on Monday that when they tried to access the popular porn site on Monday, they were met with a blank screen.

XHamster spokesman Mike Kulich says that this is no accident, but rather a direct response to the state’s passage of what is seen as an anti-LGBT law.

“We have spent the last 50 years fighting for equality for everyone and these laws are discriminatory which XHamster.com does not tolerate,” Kulich told 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.”

Yes, that’s the way to turn socially conservative North Carolinians against the new law: deny their local perverts access to online pornography. I love Charles C.W. Cooke’s suggestion:

One has to wonder which briar patches the bill’s opponents will throw their enemies into next. Perhaps Planned Parenthood will refuse to perform abortions until the measure is nixed?

Let us take a moment to reflect on the comic sublimity of our nation’s nitwit degeneracy: a pornographer is claiming the moral high ground. Pass the popcorn.
