Tumblr’s Romeo and Juliet hate-fest needs to stop. 

Do a lot of people misinterpret R&J? Probably. 

But the core of R&J’s conflicts lies not in horny teenagers. Their love does not cause the deaths in the play.

Lack of communication between generations does. The actions of their parents do. Mindless cycles of violence that they’re forced to perpetuate do. The fact that they kill themselves is horrific. Not because they just need to get a grip, but because their families make it clear that they hate the person they love, for no other reason than ingrained perceptions of who they are and where they come from.

Sound like anything we still have happening today?

Root for Romeo and Juliet. Want them to love each because they’ve found passion in a world that is constructed mostly of hate. Realize that the show is not about how stupid they are, but how the society they live in sucks. 

That play still has a shit ton of relevance if people would stop dismissing it.
