  3. Romeo + Juliet was great. Especially the part where Tybalt shoots Benvolio in the chest and lights him on fire before the first scene has ended.

  4. @1 Though shakespeare did write romantic poems towards a male patron, this was actually a very normal part of artistic society in his time. Flattering a local person of wealth had obvious benefits and at the time was often done in a very romantic way. Further proof that Shakespeare was probably not gay: wife and kids that he adored, heteronormative characters in plays, agreement with normative Christian values, etc.

    Hope that enlightened you. You know, unless you though being homosexist would be funny in which case fuck you.
