* OnceAcceptableTargets: Gays, who were almost always depicted as the campiest of {{Camp Gay}}s for cheap laughs. The best example might be the over-the-top celebrity impersonators in Bloch's ''Psycho II'' (nothing to do with the movie), who are shrieking, giggling catty queens-- even the ones who do Creator/JohnWayne and Creator/ClintEastwood.
* HarsherInHindsight: In his 1947 novel ''The Scarf'' the protagonist fantasizes about going up onto a rooftop with a high-powered rifle and shooting at anyone and everyone he can. Editors originally removed this as too nasty and outrageous, but it was put back in the 1966 and subsequent reissues after [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Whitman Charles Whitman's]] shooting spree.
