The 25-year-old has a long-running rivalry with the West Indies' Marlon Samuels, and the pair squared up to each other during England's loss in the World T20 final this summer.
Speaking to BBC Sport, Stokes said that officials sometimes get involved in heated exchanges "too early" and create "a situation out of nothing".
"[Fans] like to see passion and desire to win, so I think there could be a bit more lenience towards stuff like that, definitely.
"We're trying to win a game here playing for our country, so give us a bit of leeway."
Stokes is currently with the England squad in Bangladesh for their two-Test and three-match ODI tour.
