“Cal-osha is watching porn”

Business people watching a TV screen in an office setting

Treasure Island Media’s Paul Morris has some statistics for you.

Cal/OSHA workers may soon be treated to a screening of Breeding Season 2 thanks to AIDS Healthcare Foundation’s worthless complaint last week over internationally-produced bareback porn. That complaint and the impending investigation has prompted Treasure Island Media’s Paul Morris to cleverly and rightfully remind everyone that people in California workplaces die from being burned alive or sliced in half, not from being in bareback porn. (Although some Cal/OSHA investigators might want to die if they have to watch Slammed.)

Paul Morris via Treasure Island Blog:

In California in 2012 human beings have been literally cooked to death on the job, they have had their scalps torn off by machines on the job, they have had legs severed on the job, been crushed to death on the job, burned to death on the job, fallen to their death, been sliced in half by industrial die-cutting machines

But at Cal-osha, their staff and legal teams are watching porn.

Horrific deaths and maimings occur in growing numbers, while on-site deaths in confined workspaces–including those in Silicon Valley–due to asphyxiation and poisoning are occurring in higher and higher numbers.

But Cal-osha is watching porn. Not just my porn, mind you. They’re watching a lot of porn. That takes a lot of time, a lot of money, a lot of resources. A lot of kleenex.

An estimated 6,500 workers in California die each year from chemical exposure.

No, I didn’t get that number wrong. My finger didn’t slip on the keyboard: 6,500 workers a year in California. Trust me: I got the stat from Cal-osha. At least they’re counting. (appendix A, page 3)

6,500 worker deaths a year from chemical exposure alone.

In porn, 0 worker deaths. That’s zero. As in, not a single one.

I guess I can’t blame Cal-osha. Watching porn is a fun way to spend time. Devoting yourself to watching porn is a great way to pretend you’re monitoring an industry that has a record of zero fatalities, nearly no accidents, very little danger at all. It’s like monitoring skateboarding. Or surfing. Much more fun than dealing with actual tragedies.

All over California, workplace violence and killings are radically rising in numbers. As of 2010, on-site violence accounted for 26% of work-related fatalities. Again, the numbers are from osha. Trust them: they can count deaths once they’ve happened.

On-site violence in porn: 0%. Fatalities from porn violence, 0. (appendix A, page 20)

Watching porn is, I’m sure, far more relaxing than figuring out how to keep men in tuna packing plants from being slowly and horrifyingly cooked alive. Watching porn is easier than making sure that non-English speaking employees in factories don’t have their scalps ripped off because they can’t read the warning signs. There’s no blood or gore or horror or human tragedy in porn. Porn has no sliced tendons, no maimings, no broken necks. No widows. No orphans.

Read the rest.
