Since the original article has since been deleted (I can’t imagine why…), you can still view it here.

While ancient Egyptians were, by all accounts, black, the fact remains that their civilization was under foreign rule for the last 340 years before its collapse.  There are literally numerous funerary coffins from that time period—different from a traditional Egyptian sarcophagus—that bore portraits depicting the person inside.  These are referred to as Fayum mummy portraits.  They are clearly a departure from Egyptian practices and artwork, and are considered as direct Roman influence, so yes:  There is quite a lot of evidence as to the Greek and Roman occupation of Egypt.

As for Cleopatra, even her name is of Greek origin.  As mentioned above, she was part of the Ptolemaic dynasty of Greek rulers that served as Egyptian pharaohsThe land would be later ruled over by Romans, Arabs, and Muslims.  It is not known who her mother is, but it is speculated that even her mother may have been part Macedonian, and not fully Egyptian, thus putting even the suggested quarter of Egyptian heritage into question.  While both queens Hapshetsut and Nefertiti were of pure Egyptian lineage, Cleopatra was not.

Or, if you’d like even more information, I’m pretty sure I’ve got a few books around here on the subject.

But seriously:  Please do not make a post about the history of anything unless you are knowledgeable enough about it that you are not presenting a false account of someone else’s civilization.

you literally cannot argue with antifeminists/MRAs because they truly do not believe that women are oppressed. they have no knowledge of the history of women’s rights in this country and they don’t even attempt to try to learn. like you can literally give them a list of women murdered at the hands of hateful, misogynistic men and they’d still be like “look men get murdered too”

One of the worst moments in life is probably when you’re in a room full of people and you look around and see them all talking and laughing and all of a sudden you feel so sad and lonely that you can even feel a physical pain in your chest because you realise that they all belong to someone and they all have someone who belongs to them and you don’t, you’re just kind of there
