The Political Power of Porn

HB2

NC Law Angers Businesses

PayPal backs out of building a center in North Carolina. The North Carolina government does not move.

The Entertainment Industry threatens to take their filming elsewhere. The North Carolina government does not move.

A major Pharmaceutical company threatens to back out of building a development center/factory. The North Carolina government does not move.

The Governor of New York bans all unnecessary travel to North Carolina. The North Carolina government does not move.

Bruce Springsteen cancels a concert. The North Carolina government does not move.

ONE DAY without porn and governor of NC caves.

He’s not touching the most visible aspect of the “Bathroom bill,” which is the unenforceable “Bathroom by genetics at birth” law, but he is gutting the bill of its most dangerous parts such as businesses being able to discriminate based on sexual preference and gender identification.

I’m sure it’s a coincidence; a buildup of business pressures which would significantly affect the North Carolina economy. Still, the timing is immensely amusing.
