Yes: Prop 60 Will Apply To Real Porn Couple Too

Donald Trump isn’t the only megalomaniac devoid of empathy. Michael Weinstein is even worse.

“As Prop 60 may sound like a compassionate measure aimed at protecting a marginalized workforce, but the very people who make up that workforce say it’s a stealth attack on their livelihood and safety” said the Sacramento Bee.

Xbiz today confirms that there will no exemptions, even when the members of that workforce are a couple – as in a legally married couple.

Married couples filming with each other in the privacy of their own home could be sued and fined for not using a condom if Proposition 60 passes, according to the proponents of the initiative in a recent story in the Sacramento News & Review.

vote no prop 60Rick Taylor, spokesman for the “Yes on Prop 60” campaign, is quoted in the piece and offered no empathy for married couples filming at home, calling them “lawbreakers” and encouraging them to move out of state if they insisted on filming without a condom.

The story featured a married couple, Alyce and Justin, who supplement their income filming webcam shows with one another. Alyce said she fears the prospect of getting roped into a lawsuit that exposes her real name and costs her her “vanilla” day job.

“If you want to be a business in California, and you don’t want to obey the law, then please move,” Taylor is quoted telling Alyce in the News & Review story. “I would encourage you to move. Take that threat and take it to some other state”

If Prop 60 passes, any resident of California could sue the couple if a condom was not visible in the film.

The couple could be fined, have their business closed and have their private information exposed, according to the News & Review.

Michael Weinstein: the Anti-PrEP, Pro Prop 60 Douchebag

Eric Paul Leue, campaign manager for No on Prop 60 (Californians Against Worker Harassment) and executive director of the Free Speech Coalition, said Prop 60 campaign has never been about protecting performers.

“Prop 60 has one goal: to give one man, Michael Weinstein, the sole proponent and funder of the of the initiative the power to bring lawsuits against adult performers for creating content he doesn’t like, even if it’s a married couple filming in their own home,” he said. “After reading this interview, it is clearer than ever that we need to defeat the dangerous Prop 60.”

Proposition 60 has been opposed by the Los  Angeles Times, the San Francisco Chronicle, the Sacramento Bee and the state’s other largest papers, as well as the California Democratic Party, the California Republican Party, the California Libertarian Party, San Francisco AIDS Foundation, AIDS Project LA, the Los Angeles LGBT Center, The Wall Las Memorias Project, the Harvey Milk Democratic Club, the Alice B. Toklas LGBT Democratic Club, Sen. Mark Leno, and the performer group APAC (the Adult Performer Advocacy Committee) and many others.
