* Leonardo da Vinci is generally believed to have been, if not flat-out gay, at least bisexual. ''Da Vinci's Demons'' portrays him as aggressively heterosexual. His one (off-screen) dalliance with a man is dismissed as "experimentation" and in contrast with his explicit sexual acts with many women, his one kiss with another man is a chaste kiss good-bye.

* ''{{Series/Misfits}}'':
** When Nathan suddenly starts showing attraction to Simon (because of a guy using his power, who he pissed off), Kelly asks incredulously whether he's gay. He'd only showed interest in women before, but no one thinks he might be bi.
-->'''Rudy:''' "All I'm saying is that maybe your boyfriend is a proud, beautiful gay man who likes to-"
--> '''Alisha:''' "He's not gay! He's the best shag I ever had!"
** Averted in Season 3 with Emma, who appears to find both Curtis and 'Melissa' attractive, and one of the girls Rudy thought he slept with in episode 6.
** It was already averted in the Season 1 finale where a girl in Rachel's circle confessed her sinful life dating lots of guys and other girls.
** Finn and Jess never assume that Alex may be interested in both men and women. Then again, [[ItMakesSenseInContext neither does Alex.]]
** When Abby becomes attracted to (and then has sex with) a woman, she (and everyone else) assumes this means she's a lesbian, even though previously she only had sex with men (due to LaserGuidedAmnesia making her forget everything prior to the storm). No one appears to think that she could just be a bisexual, or is even aware of the idea. This could be explained though, in that Abby had been searching for a connection in all of her sexual encounters and had found zero sense of fulfillment by being with any of these men.

* Sex advice columnist Dan Savage spent a number of years loudly and publicly convinced that bisexual people did not exist (namely that anyone who claimed to be one was either a straight person looking for attention or a closeted gay person). Eventually he shifted to the idea that bisexual women are real but bisexual men aren't, before finally accepting that anyone of any gender can be bi.

* In ''Series/TheOffice'' (the American version), a big scandal involves Angela marrying a state senator who Oscar thinks is actually gay, based on looks he gives other men. The possibility that the senator is actually bisexual never comes up, despite him being introduced in the series as having been married to a woman already and having a son (who is promptly forgotten about in later epiisodes). The writers of ''Series/TheOffice'' also seemed to think that being gay meant a man couldn't possibly have sex with a woman - when Angela becomes pregant, one of Oscar's reasons to suspect she actually had an affair is that her husband is gay.

* Susan from ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' briefly becomes a lesbian, seeing at least two women. One of these women leaves Susan for Kramer until being turned off from men by a coat, and the other was an ex of George's who remained infatuated right up until meeting Susan. Susan herself eventually returns to George. Despite the fact that the orientations of these three change at the drop of a hat (or coat), each of them is identified by her immediate status at all times, never as bisexual.

** After he gets a massage from a male masseuse which makes George think he ''might'' be attracted to men, everyone takes this as him possibly being gay, even though he only showed attraction for women before. The concept of bisexuality is never raised.
