** Finally outright subverted in issue 41 of ''[[ComicBook/DCComicsBombshells DC Comics Bombshells]]'', where Harley and Ivy share a completely non-censored BigDamnKiss (needless to say, fans of the pairing reacted ''very'' positively to that issue). In a later issue it's shown that they're outright sleeping together. Why is this "subverted" in this case as opposed to merely "averted", you might ask? Because while it's ''ostensibly'' less surprising in a series known for it's CastFullOfGay, it's worth pointing out that the series still takes place in an alternate-universe World War II era, where homophobia and sexism are indicated to still stubbornly exist, making it ''more'' than just an aversion like the modern-day-set New 52 continuity; in fact, the Cast Full Of Gay itself makes it a repeatedly DefiedTrope, and deliberately so on the part of the creative team, who have stated they are purposefully trying to "make up" for the lack of ''real'' Golden Age comics heroines of minority status, including those on the LGBTQ spectrum. To that end, not only are the lesbians ''not'' hidden, but there's ''multiple'' such canon pairings; Harley and Ivy weren't even the first to get an on-panel kiss.

* Seeing how many Arabic-speaking countries are extremely conservative due to Muslim beliefs, Howard [=McBride=], one of Clyde's [[HasTwoMommies fathers]] on ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'', was changed to [[ShesAManInJapan a woman]] in the Arabic dub...albeit coming across as a pretty [[LadyLooksLikeADude masculine looking woman]] in the process.

** TNG's fourth season episode "The Host" is easily the worst example of this, as the ending has Crusher state that she can only view men romantically or sexually, and states that this is the way "her people" (humans, seemingly as a whole) are. She even says that "One day, our love may not be so limited" in direct refutation of Roddenberry's idea that by this time, our love ''isn't'' this limited.
*** Actually, she said that she couldn't deal with the switching hosts, first with the Ambassador's body, then her commanding officer and friend Cmdr.William Riker, and then another trill; all within a very short time (a few days, or weeks). Rewatch the episode, dude.

** All series are infamous for this, despite Creator/GeneRoddenberry himself [[WordOfGod asserting]] that humanity would have advanced beyond anti-gay prejudice in his idealized future, and claimed he would introduce a gay character on ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration''. His statements were disregarded by later producers to an almost militant degree. Complaints from fans were usually met with half-hearted appeasement in the form of {{Very Special Episode}}s that relied on BizarreAlienBiology as a metaphor for homosexuality, bisexuality, or transgenderism. No human characters are ever depicted as anything other than heterosexual, although they will frequently engage in InterspeciesRomance so long as their partner at least identifies as being of the opposite-sex.

* Greg Rucka, the man responsible for re-imagining Franchise/WonderWoman for the 21st century and re-inventing the character, has said publicly that he imagines [[https://inews.co.uk/essentials/culture/books/wonder-woman-creator-confirms-comic-book-character-bisexual/ she would have had same-sex relationships]] as her upbringing in a matriachy with no men would practically demand this. But this aspect of her character would be seriously down-played for the reboot. In the ''Comicbook/DCRebirth'' series, #12 has Steve ask if Diana had "someone special" on Paradise Island and is told "her name was Keia". (Incidentally, this is the same issue where Barbara Ann Minerva is very interested to learn that Etta Candy is familiar with the works of Sappho...)

* Myka and H.G. Wells from ''Series/{{Warehouse 13}}''. Helena's only claim to canon bisexuality is the half-joke, fully deniable [[AmbiguouslyBi "Many of my lovers were men"]]. Myka doesn't even get that much. All her outright-stated relationships and crushes have been on men. Nevertheless, they are quite obviously desperately in love, although circumstances prevent them from getting together. Come on, [[spoiler:H.G. abandoned her plan to destroy the world because she couldn't bear to hurt Myka, and Myka is clearly hurt in the episode where she finds out H.G. is in a long-term relationship and wants nothing to do with the Warehouse.]]

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5od0hNYlwk This scene]] from ''Series/OnceUponATime'' is said to be the one in which Mulan is revealed to be either lesbian or bisexual. However, its ambiguity leaves Mulan's sexual orientation up to the viewer's interpretation. She never explicitly says whether she is in love with Aurora or her husband Phillip. Although she was previously a series regular, after this scene, she has less than two more minutes of screen time. After this, [[spoiler:she leaves to become the first woman ever in Robin Hood's band of merry men. This is an example of CureYourGays. However, although Robin's band of merry men returns to Storybrook, Mulan is not among them. This means that it could also be seen as a case of BuryYourGays instead.]]

** Agent Victoria Hand is a lesbian in the comics, but here she is [[spoiler:killed by Agent Ward]] before there is any in-universe confirmation that she is a lesbian.
** The writers considered revealing that Isabelle Hartley from Season 2 was Victoria's former lover, but cut any mention of this from the script since they thought [[spoiler:[[DeadStarWalking Hartley's death]]]] would cause people to accuse the show of exploiting the [[spoiler:BuryYourGays]] trope.
