Because Mike said to Will, "Just because you don't like girls..."

Which at his age doesn't necessarily mean anything. He just might not be that into a particular girl yet. But that line is enough for some people to run with it.

Also, apparently his dad called him a queer and ***.

And Jonathon had a talk with him and bout him being "different".

That's just what I have seen online.

Considering Will has spent each of the past 3 years of his life with an alien creature either stalking him or living inside of him, not sure he's exactly progressing like his peers through the normal tropes of being a teenager. Thus his strong desire to have them play a D&D campaign, because that's what he associates as the normal life before all the crap started happening to him.

While Mike meets and harbors El, Caleb meets and starts dating Max, and Dustin has basically the single greatest adventure any kid has ever had, Will has been stuck in neutral just trying to have a normal week or two when he doesn't see a giant monster in his mind or go to a doctor who isn't really a normal doctor or have terrifying nightmares. Whether his character progresses into homosexuality or not, when you've suffered non-stop traumatic events, your mind needs to sort you out first before you start deciding who the cutest person in your grade level is.

Writers chiming in on the subject.

don't remember if they were mentioned in the first two seasons...but that's not the issue. The idea of the Soviets building a mall with a deep shaft and underground complex manned with soldiers and scientists in the US while keeping it secret is just too much.


But a 13 year old girl killing a monstrous flying octopus with her super powers is more realistic?


I think the difference between the two is that one requires you to suspend your disbelief in the supernatural, where the other requires you to suspend your belief in the implausible.

Ele and the upside down are inherent properties of a universe that we've bought into before they're introduced. They kind of just slide in with the suspense built in the first season, and the questions we have about them and their backstory are unfamiliar and unanswerable. We can be lulled into the idea of them because we're blank slates as far as they're concerned when they're introduced

The Russian presence in Hawkins is a different story. It requires us to ask questions about things we're familiar with and that we already know the answers to. How did they get there? How did they build this giant base? How does no one notice guys with AK's guarding the loading dock? We can't be lulled into the idea because we know too much about the possibility of it before it's introduced.

I must not have gotten that far yet.

If they built the mall out in the middle of nowhere with access restricted to construction personnel only, they could have just kept digging. Drive across west texas some time and tell me you can't imagine some secret project being built out there in all the nothingness.

Also think about the Greenbriar Hotel. They built an entire bunker for congress and were able to hide it for 30 years.
