List last updated January 28th 2019
There are no women in this list even though no conscious effort has been made to exclude females. If you know of any women who you believe should be in this list, please leave a comment.
Some other characteristics that seem particularly common among those listed (beside the 100% proportion of maleness) are being a politician, being a politician who has changed parties during his career, being a rock star, being some kind of an entertainer who is a “heart-throb” or the opposite; being obese or ugly as a hatful of bums, being awarded an official honour, being a member of a network or social circle with members who display low sexual ethical standards, being an evil leader of a religious cult, being a populariser of science, and using a name other than one’s original name such as a stage name, nickname, middle name, pen name, anglicised name or changed name. Some musical genres appear to stand out as associated with celebrity pedos: 1970s glam rock, rock pioneers of the 1950s to 1970s and 1960s folk rock/pop. In the UK it appears that politicians to the right of politics tend to appear in this list, while in Australia the centre-left union-affiliated ALP have three names from their movement in this list. Politicians from the USA in this list seem to span the range of political philosophies, and shockingly, includes past and present presidents.
I think the unifying theme is the abuse of power by men, be it political power, social power, the ability to manipulate, workplace status, the inter-personal power of an entertainer whose act is all about enhancing their sexual allure and appealing to the emotions of a young audience, or the simple brute power of wealth which can corrupt authorities or pay for defamation actions taken out against accusers.
We must be living in a sad, sick, corrupt world if many of our heroes, elected leaders and recipients of official honours are rapists, child abusers or sex pests. Our legal, political, regulatory and policing systems are failing to address these issues.
