I tend to ignore canon for straight characters because there aren't enough non-stereotyped gay or bi characters. Congrats, bi people do exist!

Congrats, I know bi people exist because I am one!

But "bi" doesn't automatically equal "massive cockslut" either, which is a disturbingly common characterization and strays way too close to the "bis are greedy and hypersexual" stereotype for me to be comfortable with. Lots of people seem to think "bi" is shorthand for "now I get to write about ____ straight character getting bent over six ways to Sunday by random dudes". There's never any variety to the depictions of canonly straight characters being portrayed as bisexual, it's almost always used as a lazy narrative tool so authors don't have to write someone discovering their sexuality. It's often a way to retcon a canon sexuality in under two sentences, or an excuse to write OOC smut and then not tag it.
