It amazes me how much people complain about sexuality in Teen Wolf when the writers, like, completely disregard how brains work at all.
Like how no one was really torn up about Erica and Boyd’s death, or how they blatantly disregard triggers around Isaac (like Derek throws him around and Isaac openly jokes about his own circumstances), or how Lydia just moved on from Jackson with no real emotional follow-through, or basically the entire Hale family. Like, these characters are only damaged when it’s crucial to the plot; other than that, they’re totally cool with all of the tragedy they’ve experienced. The TW writers play fast and loose with dumping all this drama on people then magically cleansing their psyches until it’s relevant again. I don’t know about you, but that bothers me a hell of a lot more than whether Stiles is bi or not.
I’m not saying you have no right to complain about the way gender and sexuality are handled on the show. I’m just saying that it’s part of a bigger fracture, and I think doing these characters mental and emotional justice is more important than the relationships they delve into.

I had a lot of fun drawing those arrows….
I wonder if the “not dressed like that” isn’t so much a testament to how the Sheriff thinks gay guys dress, but to how he knows Stiles acts when he is trying to impress someone he likes.
Because Stiles did dress to impress for the prom when he was going with Lydia. And he seems to the type, as shown in other ways, to go ALL OUT when he is interested in someone and thinks he maybe possibly have a shot.
“Not dressed like that. I remember when you first met Lydia Martin and you wore a suit to school every day for a month, even though you were in the second grade and had no earthly reason to wear a suit. I remember when you met Deputy Smith’s daughter and dressed like you worked at Hollister for almost a year until you realized that her “best friend, Mary” was actually her girlfriend. I even remember when you first met Scott and wanted him to like you and convinced your mother to buy you a copy of whatever t-shirt Scott would wear so that you could have a copy and you could wear them and be twins because Scott didn’t have anyone else to wear Wonder Woman t-shirts with. YOU ARE NOT SMOOTH STILES AND YOU WOULD NEVER WEAR YOUR SOMETIMES PJ TOP TO A CLUB IF YOU THOUGHT A PERSON YOU LIKED WOULD SEE YOU”
