qarnaim: Hey, do you know where that info on Cleopatra came from? Because everything I've ever been able to find has said that her mother was Cleopatra-V-Tryphaena, her father, Ptolemy-XII-Auletes' cousin. Both members of a !!Racist, Inbred, Colonizing!! Greek(with possibly a little Persian but no coptic) dynasty. Her speaking Egyptian does not actually necessitate Egyptian ancestry, and if there is any new information, we'd all like to see something other than just begging-the-question type statements.

This has to be the ultimate proof that people just…don’t understand…what “sources” are. I literally gave you a page. number.

look, here we’ve got the post, right?:

Okay now look at this part very carefully:

That’s the name of the book and all the information you need to find the book. And I give you the PAGE on which you can find this information, okay? Here:

Got it? Okay, let’s grab the book. you can get your very own copy of it here.

Got your book?

Alright. Now, let’s carefully turn to PAGE 11:

Okay, let’s look around for a minute to see if it says anything about CLEOPATRA, and if you’re using the PDF, you can use the search function of whatever PDF viewer you use to search out relevant terms!

Here we go:

Whoa, there it is! Right on page 11!

But wait, what about the rest of that stuff? Well, it says “7” right after “Greek”, so let’s check it out at the bottom of the page, where the footnotes are listed with numbers so you can find them easily!

Here we go!

WE DID IT!!!! WE FOUND WHERE THAT INFORMATION CAME FROM!

Now can we please, please, PLEASE stop pretending like all the information I have here was either pulled out from my butt at random, or somehow is just UTTERLY unsourcable, unfindable, or inherently mysterious, or “questionable” or otherwise just floating around with no rhyme or reason whatsoever. Okay? Okay.

Girls, romanticize yourselves. You are a queen. You are a warrior. You are an enchantress. You are a mermaid. You are a goddess. You are all of these things and more, you are the stuff of fairytales.
