[QUOTE=vicsinad;178763]Using the term "Slav" to define the Macedonians, whether by outsiders or Macedonians themselves, was really a phenomenon of the 1920s and 1930s. That's when Russia was on the rise, and was using the term Slav to attract Slavic-speaking peoples to its domain. It also coincided with the strengthening of the Yugoslav idea in Croatia and Serbia. This is when you start seeing the "Macedonian Slav" terminology enter the conversation, and it gained in prominence as Yugoslavs and Macedonians tried to get Russians and other Slavic-speaking peoples onto their side in the battle against Greek terrorists and occupiers in Aegean Macedonia.

Before the 1920s, the term Macedonian Slav was practically insignificant. Some scholars and others used it when making appeals to other Slavic-speaking people. Most who did use the term used it in regards to Slavic-speaking. However, if you look at newspapers and books written before the 1930s, especially those by Westerners, they rarely refer to "Macedonian Slavs" or "Slavs of Macedonia." It was usually just Macedonian. Sure, they (and we) acknowledged that our language is part of the Slavic family. But when hybrid Slavo-Albanian-Turkish-Vlachs like yourself use the term, it's specifically designed to belittle and de-legitimize the ethnic Macedonian identity.

So get out.[/QUOTE]

I categorise use of the term ethnic Slavs as no different to the ethnic purity direct descendant of ancient Hellene myth, all a part of the 'Greek national myth'

Linguistically, Macedonian belongs in the family of Slavic languages but, genetically, the slavic element is almost insignificant. If the iGENEA genetic studies that were undertaken of the various Balkan peoples about a decade ago are anything to go by, and indeed, to be believed, the DNA analysis for Macedonians in the republic include 30% of Ancient Macedonian blood and only 15% of slavic blood. The same study reveals Greece and Albania to have an even higher percentage of the Slavic haplogroup R1a than the "Slavs" of Macedonia.

So what does this mean? Is iGENEA some pseudo-scientific organisation with an agenda or is this simply a non-biased analysis by an organisation that specialises in the genetic origins of Europeans. I tend to lean towards the latter explanation. Perhaps aware of the inevitable and impending controversy surrounding their findings, iGENEA was quick to point out that:

[QUOTE]"...we can now genetically define numerous historical indigenous peoples. By indigenous peoples, we refer here to people groups from Antiquity who are defined not only by their own language, culture and history but also by their own DNA-profile. What is important is not the common linguistic ancestry or the historical-anthropological categorization, but the individual genetic characteristics of a people." [/QUOTE]

And, in case someone was wondering how they managed to to get their hands on Ancient Macedonian DNA for their comparisons, I read up recently that they can extract the DNA from the remaining marrow in skeletal bones found in ancient tombs.

But, regardless, reducing a people to a racist qualifier instead of referring to them by their chosen name is insulting and you are smart enough to know that Amphipolis. I'm quite certain that you would never refer to the Serbs as the Slavs of Serbia and, according to the same iGENEA study, they have double the percentage of the Slavic haplogroup R1a identifier, i.e. 30%. I'm also quite certain you have zero connection with Macedonia even though you live in Solun. In fact, your deep-rooted delusions do not allow you to understand and accept that you do not even have any connection with Greece. Your Turkish grandfather had to learn the Greek language when he arrived as a "Greek" refugee in Solun back in 1922.

Similarly, the example of the Germanic peoples of Europe should serve as an interesting lesson for you. If I'm not mistaken, they are more genetically linked than the millions of Slavic speaking peoples of Europe could ever be. And yet, no one would ever refer to the Dutch, Danes or Swedes as the Germans of Holland, Denmark or Sweden.

So pull your head, idiot.

C'mon mate, tone it down a notch or two, whether it's Amphipolis today or Lola tomorrow...just because he likes wearing womens underwear and lipstick doesn't necessarily make him a slut.
People having undergone gender reassignment have many psychological frailties that they have to overcome and manage appropriately for the rest of their lives...to insinuate he has an insatiable penchant for having every hole filled, often at the same time, may be just a tad insensitive...

The Turks, the original homosexuals...surely not?

Lol but of course not, the Turks are his ancestors not his "ancestors". Big difference. :biggrin:

[QUOTE=Amphipolis;178755]Greeks and Bulgarians (and Serbs) contested to attract the Slavs of Macedonia and persuade them they are actually Greeks, Bulgarians or Serbs.[/QUOTE]
By now, you would obviously know that making such a statement, in that manner, would be considered insulting, especially coming from a person who shares the same sentiment as many of the other implanted maggots from Asia Minor that have been infesting Macedonia for the previous century. I have been incredibly lenient with you over the years by allowing you to return several times after being banned, yet here we are again. Same tired act. You just couldn’t resist being an idiot. Perhaps you’re so indoctrinated that you’re incapable of comprehending how offensive such a term is towards Macedonians, especially when devoid of proper context and relevance. Either way, I don’t really care anymore. You’re out for the rest of the year. Spend the time to reflect on what led you to become such a miserable racist.
