This meditation on the California legislature’s hypocrisy vis-a-vis protective barriers and public health comes from Maestro Stefanos’ excellent Tumblr

Last Week in CA Legislature History…

AB 1576 passes to Senate Appropriations. Meanwhile, CA repeals the law that required chefs and restaurant employees to wear gloves when putting food on customers’ plates.

Bill to force condoms on porn stars advances as Calif. repeals law requiring food handlers to wear gloves

A sweeping backlash against the glove law helped propel efforts to quash the bare-hand ban, which was intended to curb food-borne illnesses. The Senate voted 32 to 0 Thursday to repeal the law that went into effect Jan. 1.

From http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2014/06/28/california-repeals-law-requiring-chefs-to-wear-gloves/:

Forty-one other states have similar prohibitions and the California law drew no opposition from chain restaurants. But some independent chefs and bartenders complained that it would restrict their hands-on craft, disrupt hand-washing routines and generate unnecessary waste of disposable gloves.

HAS EVERYONE LOST THEIR MIND? I will tell you what’s coming next – I just read that Michael Weinstein has just gotten himself a WHOLE Los Angeles City Health Dept. now. Guess what that means? It means he can enter into any private property, car, business, etc., with an officer in two based on fears of “public safety” without a warrant. I know because that’s how they got access to the bath houses, sex clubs, massage parlors, and other sex related businesses without a warrant in the 1980’s when we had the HIV witch hunts back then. My God won’t… Read more »

Actually, Jody, he hasn’t. The ordinance that will come to the LA voters this November originally would have broken off the city of LA from the county….but now it has been revised to only call for a committee to study the possiblility of breaking LA off. Weinstein is scummy, but he isn’t all powerful.

And it’s what I thought – http://www.csatf.org/pdf/24BLOODBORNE.pdf This has not been revised since 2000! I see NOTHING on here about the filming of sex scenes in movies and let me tell you I’ve seen some “regular” movies that make the porn industry movies look “tame”!

@Jody The document you refer to was posted prior to Cal/OSHA devoting a page to adult film workers in 2004 as well as the ongoing process begun in 2009 to revise policy in the document linked. Between 2009 & 2013 the porn industry was actively involved in the process used to create a draft OPIM policy directly related to adult filming and will likely participate in the public comment/input process which is next stage of policy development for OSHA. With your experience it might be worthwhile to download the OPIM draft for informed participation in the ongoing policy development process.… Read more »

None of what you’ve written changes the fact that the regs in place today were written for medical clinic and mortuaries and bear no relation to the reality of adult production. “Between 2009 & 2013 the porn industry was actively involved in the process used to create a draft OPIM policy directly related to adult filming and will likely participate in the public comment/input process which is next stage of policy development for OSHA.” LOL Cal/OSHA has disregarded all input that is not based on condoms condoms condoms. Despite the lies propagated on other sites, Cal/OSHA NEVER EVER at any… Read more »

Also, Lurking….the porn industry was and is no more “actively involved” in promulgating the proposed CalOSHA regulations on “barrier protections” and adult filming than sex worker activists were “actively involved” in the passage of the antisexwork initiative Prop 35. This was clearly a collusion between CalOSHA, UCLA, LACDPH, and AHF in deliberately crafting the adult regs to fit AHF’s goal of mandating condoms and other “barrier protection” and targeting specific acts as beyond the pale. I have posted an analysis of the draft OPIM at BPPA; it not only mandates “barrier protection” such as condoms and dental dams (as well… Read more »

Seems you weren’t present and haven’t read over five years of OSHA minutes that reflect the industries choice of temper tantrums vs presenting meaningful dialogue and verifiable data for the entire talent pool to justify alternatives or less stringent regs than proposed.

Seems you are incorrect. Again. This is more of the same propaganda — OSHA just wanted to help and the adult business f’d it up. Blah blah blah… I have attended Cal/OSHA hearings and Cal/OSHA trials. And adult biz people who have worked with Cal/OSHA on the new regs agree with me unanimously that Cal/OSHA NEVER put condoms on the table. Sorry, you don’t get to come over here and lie without getting called on it. It is also odd for a “homemaker” in Ohio to be so knowledgeable about this subject, when you claimed to have wandered over here… Read more »
