Harvey's war on fairness now targeting 'fair use'
The good boys at Box Turtle Bulletin have been contacted by rabid anti-gay activist Linda Harvey, who has demanded that they remove a photo they were using to highlight a post. Linda even emphasized her point by saying BTB has to remove the photograph "NOW!"
What do we say to that? Well, we say....
...you're a public figure who has willingly put your promotional pics on the Internet, Ms. Harvey. A non-reproducable thumbnail image for the purposes of commentary is well within the realm of acceptability. Now please, stop troubling the BTB boys with such frivolity; they have a "culture war" to help put to rest!

**If you'd like to contact us Ms. Harvey, we can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you'd like a picture for highlighting this writer's post about you, you can find one here or here or here or here.
The woman is going to find her picture all over the internet. I wouldn't be surprised to find it in the advertising for a drag show.

You're right that she has opened herself up, Mike. However, I have to split hairs and say that if her pic was used to advertise something like a drag show, then she'd have much more of a case.

I knew it! Couldn't wait to 'turn the page.' Probably could post a nice row down the side of the page for a while. Maybe with the blinking bigot sign like SKern has on PHB.

OOOO! He invited her to comment on his 'distortions.' ... anytime. This I would like to hear.

Is she an RG (real-girl)? Maybe she just needs to work on her posture, or get some implants.

She's probably sore because her "good bra" was dirty that day, thus resulting in...well, you see.
That said, The Jeremy is cute! I did not know The Jeremy was cute!
AND smart and politically involved. It's good to know there are other people like me in the world.

I borrowed your happy tiled picture for my own blog.
She. Asked. For. It.

I just taped it to the wall of the men's restroom -- with her email address. I hope you're free this Friday, Linda!!

David, maybe you should have someone tack it up in the ladies room as well??? Ms. Harvey might swing both ways??

I posted a pic on my own website about this woman, she will become just as popular as lol cats. If she spent time policing her image across the internets maybe she would have less time on her jihad against homosexuality.

"David, maybe you should have someone tack it up in the ladies room as well??? Ms. Harvey might swing both ways??"
Isn't that ALWAYS the case for those who can't shut up about homosex?
LOL @ David, fucking hilarious!

David, I think that might have been crossing a dangerous line.

Jeremy, confess. The real reason you created this post so you could put your cute mug on the web, right?

The Anita Bryant likeness is uncanny.

Jody: You got me! Shameless self-promoter, I am. ;-)
Though I really don't have to, as my pics are already easily Googleable. Because unlike MS. Harvey, I realize that my promotional pics are quite suitable for others to use in highlighting their commentaries about me/G-A-Y. That is, after all, why one tends to release such images.

lolindas! freakin' awesome!!!

Oh, Jeremy, I do love the new pictures.
Now make one of those pretty composite pictures like the Nation did where the faces of the thousands of dead soldiers came together to form a likeness.
A thousand Lindas can equal one dildo with the right tenacity and artistic vision.

Er, the Nation's composite formed a likeness of George Bush. I must have seen something shiny while I was typing.
Possibly, I was still recoiling from the Today Show's transition from "Was the media complicit in selling the Iraq war?" to "Wedding dresses for dogs!"

Linda is a cum gurgling whore.

Fuck her! Did you hear me, Linda Harvey? FUCK YOU!!!
Posted by: Stephen | May 28, 2008 3:35:27 PM
Linda Harvey is a disturbed woman no doubt but is it really necessary to resort to asinine comments like brian's and Stephens? Seems to me that nonsense like that simply proves the Harvey's of the world right. gay does not equal crude and uncivilized.

Brilliant use of a photo.
Posted by: stojef | May 28, 2008 6:55:02 PM
Another really fun game would be to take a larger photo of Linda and create a game where we could "dress" Linda like a pretty, pretty princess, you know, with sequins and tiaras, and maybe antlers.
Have you considered Linda with antlers?
