Mary Whitehouse (1910-2001) was a nutjob Christian who campaigned for censorship in the media of everything in that she claimed was immoral. Among her more jawdropping achievements were causing the last prosecution for blasphemy in the UK, against Gay News, for publishing a poem which featured a gay Jesus. She was the subject of the third verse of Pink Floyd's Pigs (Three Different Ones) on Animals (1977). Some radio stations in the US thought they were casting aspersion on their President (Jimmy Carter at the time) and banned the song. The lyrics "you fucked up old hag ha ha charade you are" didn't help.
Quentin Crisp said she was quite attractive. In considering this, it should be kept in mind that Crisp was most famous for being camp as a row of sodomites.
