What bothered me most about the aliens wasn’t that they insisted upon seducing and having sex with our Earth women. Well, not as such. The thing was… they had no real attraction to humans. Biologically, we were as different as cows and coral. And it’s no fault of the human race that we can find pretty much anything attractive. It really did nothing for them, to charm and pleasure Earth women.
What bothered me is that they did it just to fuck with Earth men. Their awful chittering voices: “Don’t you wish your Earth boy was a freak like Kargon?”
