While the PC movement had influence in political circles, the censorship movement had actual teeth in the form of laws. I suppose the basic difference is in the social verses the political. The PC movement could influence people not to see a show like B!D!F!W! (Bitch! Dyke! Faghag Whore) but censorship actually stopped it from being presented. In 1993, at the big gay march on Washington, DC, censorship and the PC movement came together to stop scenes from B!D!F!W! from being presented at the Gala. ... This was a period that saw anti-pornography lesbians hold hands across America with homophobic born again Christians who were also anti- pornography. Lesbians who tore down posters of B!D!F!W! in the 1990’s and who boycotted the performances because they believed that those words offended women, because the show had strippers and, because I mocked burlesque by turning it into a nude political diatribe against political correctness and the elitism and control of second wave feminism, are now unwilling to accept that this period - a mere ten years ago - did not exist.
