Playing With: Everyone Is Bi
Basic Trope: Everyone is bisexual unless stated otherwise.
  • Straight: The Alice and Bob show stars openly bisexual Alice, her promiscuous Anything That Moves boyfriend Bob, Mindy, who usually only dates men but makes a exception for Alice, and Ambiguously Bi Stan. The main villain is a Depraved Bisexual named Fritz.
  • Exaggerated: Literally everyone, including even minor characters and extras, are extreme omnisexuals. There literally isn't such a thing as homosexuality or heterosexuality.
  • Downplayed: But Not Too Bi.
  • Justified: The society is binormative.
  • Inverted: No Bisexuals
  • Subverted: It would seem that everyone is bi, but then Alice admits thats she's actually a Lipstick Lesbian, who only dates Bob because its considered the norm to be bisexual. It later turns out that a lot of people are closeted heterosexuals or homosexuals who just pretend to be bi as its the social expectation.
  • Double Subverted: However it is still clear that heterosexuals and homosexuals are rare - even taking into account the closeted.
  • Parodied: A bisexual organization is formed - everyone in town shows up.
  • Zig Zagged: ???
  • Averted: Not everybody is bisexual in the Alice and Bob show.
  • Enforced: The writers want to keep options open for characters hooking up, and making everyone bisexual seems to be the way to go about this.
  • Lampshaded: "Dude, are you bisexual?" "Well, who isn't around here?" "Good point."
  • Invoked: As society and the media got more tolerant of bisexuality and homosexuality, more people became open minded to experimenting with their sexualities and trying out different things.
  • Exploited: ???
  • Defied: ???
  • Discussed: ???
  • Conversed: ???
