*Intrigued by Cvetinovs posts about his view what is Slavic, and the great discussion that came out of it, for you what does it mean for one to be Slavic?

Is it a bloodbound trait? Is it only a lingustinc trait? is it only the matter if one choses to be Slavic? is it only a birth right? Or is it just the place where you live that defines you and your ethnicity? or maybe is the privilege to be called Slavic get’s earned by contributing to Slavic society and gain it’s acceptance into it?

Is it a bloodbound trait? –
Yes

Is it only a lingustic trait? –
Not only, but a major trait since we are known for our language.

Is it only the matter if one choses to be Slavic? –
You can’t choose to be a Slav. Only a person of paternal Slavic lineage is according to tradition seen as a Slav. I am against adopting identities, if not accepted. 1

Is it only a birth right? –
No, you can’t choose where to be born.

Or is it just the place where you live that defines you and your ethnicity? –
You can’t choose where to be born, but you can choose where to die.

Or maybe is the privilege to be called Slavic get’s earned by contributing to Slavic society and gain it’s acceptance into it? –
Not a privilege but the only possibility for inclusion of non-Slavs into the Slavdom, acceptance was always the most important trait; ancestry meant less than crap, if a person acted like a foreigner, non-supportive to their peoples cause, some even opposed to it.
