At the time, there was no telling whether the previous few weeks, during which powerful abusive men were being outed every day, would have any lasting impact, or whether they would amount to an anomaly in the normal run of things. An expectation has begun to creep into the atmosphere that if a powerful man has ever created a toxic environment for others, he will be found out and exposed. Some of the 71 men who ended up on the list suffered mild, temporary infamy; others lost their jobs, along with deals worth millions of dollars; others still have had their reputations indelibly tarnished, and may end up in jail.

In early October, Harvey Weinstein, the Hollywood producer, was fired from his namesake company after multiple women came forward to accuse him of rape and sexual assault. In what appears to be a seismic shift in what behavior is tolerated in the workplace, a cascade of high-profile men, many in the entertainment and news media industries, have since been fired or forced to resign after accusations of sexual misconduct that ranged from inappropriate comments to rape. Some high-profile cases are not on the lists below because the accusations of misconduct were not clearly sexual in nature and the men who were accused did not admit to sexual misconduct.

The social construction of sexual behavior —its taboosregulationand social and political impact—has had a profound effect on the various cultures of the world since prehistoric times. The work of Swiss jurist Johann Bachofen made a major impact on the study of the history of sexuality. Many authors, notably Lewis Henry Morgan and Friedrich Engelswere influenced by Bachofen, and criticized Bachofen's ideas on the subject, which were almost entirely drawn from a close reading of ancient mythology. In his book Mother Right: An Investigation of the Religious and Juridical Character of Matriarchy in the Ancient World Bachofen writes that in the beginning human sexuality was chaotic and promiscuous.
For many of these people, it was extremely difficult or even impossible to come out about their sexuality, and many engaged in same-sex relationships in secret, their sexuality only becoming topic of discussion years later. So, some of these people never self-identified as a bisexual person, but many also lived in generations where the modern-day definition of 'bisexual' didn't even exist. Regardless, these people helped pave the way for later generations, and have assisted young bisexual people in gaining knowledge and having historical context to their sexuality on a daily basis.
