There's nothing strange about this!

Stranger Things is *probably* going to be the most popular pop culture inspiration for Halloween this year, which means the young cast is still promoting the show THREE MONTHS after its premiere.

But while we're absolutely loving Caleb McLaughlin, Millie Bobby Brown, and Gaten Matarazzo's undeniable chemistry… the latest news from the Netflix sci-fi actually comes from Will Byers himself!

Noah Schnapp may only be 12 years old, but he proved his maturity over the weekend while addressing his character's sexuality on Instagram when prompted by fan questions.

While neither confirming nor denying that Will is actually gay, Noah managed to promote LGBT acceptance while speaking out against bullying altogether!

To be completely honest, this level of humanity is hard to find in an adult… let alone a tween!!!

So I thought it would be time to jump into the conversation. I've been reading stuff for a while. I think everyone here is missing the point. An author called Gary Schmidt came to speak at our school this week and he said that good stories aren't supposed to leave you with answers because then you never question yourself and you forget about it. A good book, or a good show leaves a lot of unanswered questions but makes you think. Which is what you are all doing. For me, Will being gay or not is besides the point. Stranger Things is a show about a bunch of kids who are outsiders and find each other because they have been bullied in some way or are different. Does being sensitive, or a loner, or a teenager who likes photography, or a girl with red hair and big glasses, make you gay? I'm only 12 but I do know we all relate to being different. And that's why I think the Duffers wrote the show the way they did. So you can ask all these questions. I hope the real answer never comes out! #dufferbrothers ❤️❤️A photo posted by 🌍Noah Schnapp🎥 (@noahschnapp) on Oct 16, 2016 at 9:22am PDT

Well said, Noah!

Although — we're still gonna hold out hope that both Will gets some more character development in Season Two, regardless of his sexuality.

After all… isn't having Winona Ryder as a mom every boy's dream come true?
