Juiced-Up Gay Transphobic Bullies With Mouthpieces

Wow – this is really choice.  With a Tribeca-supplied dimebag of fake legitimacy pulsing through their veins – amplifying its existing faux-bravery reminiscent a schoolyard bully with a legion of anti-PC (when it comes to trans issues anyway) gay Eddie Haskels backing him up – the Luna-Ticks ascend to a new high in low.

From a Facebook posting from truly legitimate Texas trans activist Vanessa Edwards Foster:

Among other nice commentary from supporters of Israel Luna’s lates piece of film art (or something) comes this ….


Ms. Foster,

As the owner of the copyrighted material of the official TICKED-OFF TRANNIES WITH KNIVES movie poster, we are placing you on notice that it is our understanding and belief that the derivative use of the poster image appearing on your blog risks copyright infringement as it was not authorized by us. It is in good faith that we are extending this notice to you and in turn requesting that you kindly remove the unauthorized material immediately.

Toni Miller
La Luna Entertainment

Imagine that! And from the same people who had no problem with unauthorized use of a couple of hate crime murder victims.

So, I guess they plan on suing me and taking me straight into bankruptcy. Huzzah. That will make an excellent image: the impoverished, infringed-upon flimmakers taking down the Goliath lone Trans activist. It will also do wonders for commuity relations — not that there’s any need for such great friends and allies as they’re obviously quite trans-positive per their own words! And who are we to disbelieve?

So if you were wondering if any of us “hot tranny messes” were going to be rewarded for bringing them all their “free publicity,” there’s your answer! Certainly! Legal threats!

GLAAD, take note!

I’m taking note – and I am hereby publicizing the image.  And this should not be interpreted as an endorsement of it – wink, wink – but, rather, merely as a public service from someone who believes that the cure for disgusting, gay transphobic speech is counter-speech.

After all, because of the threat by the Luna-Ticks, the very subject of what is contained in Vanessa’s derivative image is ripe for vigorous public debate.

Debate away, folks!  And, while you’re debating…

Keep the following in mind:

§ 107. Limitations on exclusive rights: Fair use
Notwithstanding the provisions of sections 106 and 106A, the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright. In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include—
(1) the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes;
(2) the nature of the copyrighted work;
(3) the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and
(4) the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work.
The fact that a work is unpublished shall not itself bar a finding of fair use if such finding is made upon consideration of all the above factors.

Now – go out and talk amongst yourselves…

but if you happen to engage in a boycott of any particular gay-male-manufactured transphobic piece of garbage, I’m not exactly in a position to stop you, now am I?

    Just curious – how can you speak for a company in any legal matter when the Texas Secretary of State says that company no longer legally exists? That it was revoked as a corporate entity?

    Me – I’d like to file a suit in the name of Amalgamted Fuzz from the Addames Family – I’d have just as much legal standing as you do.



  2. Megan says:

    Geez, this Toni Miller and the rest of the film’s supporters need to learn how to lighten up and take a joke. Talk about taking themselves too seriously!

  3. Polar says:

    I’d say F$%# Israel Luna and this slime who work for him, but that’s exactly what they want.

    This is satire. If satirization were illegal, every political cartoonist in the country would be sued and or in jail.

    I wasn’t protesting before, because even though I find the entire idea of this film hateful and detestable, I respect the right of the artist to create. However, that changed now. Dare to show this film in my city, and we will make sure the theater is closed.

    • Kathy says:

      I think Izzy & Toni are partners in the La Looney enterprise/non corporation. I doubt very much they’ve hired legal representation for this threatened action.

      Though – every lawyer needs a few good laughs.

      “You want to sue over what? Um – you’re an ARTISTE, right? You perhaps have heard of this quaint little known thing called fair use? This should explain the concept. Here – let me help you read that.”

  4. Moonflowrr says:

    Amen, Kathy. If a satirical photo isn’t derivative of what it’s satirizing, how the hell would anyone know it’s satire?

    After their use of victims’ names without permission, I thought that was too precious. Draw enough of the hermit crab out of its shell and you and yank him out and expose him completely.

    It’s about time for GLAAD to start suing TriBeCa for libel now ….

  5. Just tell them it’s “camp” and a new genre called “filmsploitation”.

  6. Friday Jones says:

    La Luna Enterprises is trying to CENSOR you! And I bet they never even read the entire article! How can they know it wasn’t glowingly positive unless they read every word of it?

  7. Moonflowrr says:

    “How can they know it wasn’t glowingly positive unless they read every word of it?”
    Easy! They just called their Psychotic Friends Network.

  8. DB says:

    Totally within fair use.

  9. Tamora says:

    thought TOTWK camp were well into the mindset of “there is no such thing as bad publicity in marketing exploitation films”?

    loads of fun to be had subvertising, debating, critiqueing and educating around transphobia using their TOTWK publicity materials then!

  10. Abi Christopher says:

    Who do I contact to get them to sue me? As I’m putting this up on all my pages too!

  11. *sigh* I just wish he would have thought this out to see that portraying transwomen as murderous psychopaths out for revenge does not do much for community relations. He wasted so much time and money with his stinker and he wants to save face because he ain’t getting it back.
