I like earthmen, they are delicious! Specially the tall (!!! 5'9 is not tall, not even on my planet) dark (hair! must be attached to head!) and handsome (if a drunk hoe told you that you are hot, you are not) Terra guy who works out and is in muscular bodybuilding type shape. Our men on my planet are tiny scrany and pasty. Not my type so i traveled to this planet to find my mate :)

Dear Anonymous,

On behalf of myself and the ETADL I would like to express my outrage at your sickening portrayal of Xeno-Americans and ask that you cease making such inflammatory remarks on a public forum.

Frankly, we here at the Extra-Terrestial Anti-Defamation League are ready to pursue legal action should you continue to paint such wholly offensive and stereotypical portrayals of a minority already struggling to maintain its identity. As a Xeno-American yourself, you are undoubtedly aware of the discrimination beings from other cosmic bodies are subject to on a daily basis - from improper restroom facilities for vaporous entities, to inadequate school-lunch programs for silicon-based lifeforms, to the constant harassment and profiling from black-clad men working for shadowy government organizations. That you should choose to perpetuate several of the negative stereotypes often used as justification for this lack of civil rights reveals a regrettable level of self-loathing. Included with this letter is literature that, hopefully, will educate you on the rich culture and important contributions Xeno-Americans have made throughout three centuries of American history.

What we find most troubling about your post is the portrayal of Extra-Torrential females as brainless, sex-crazed vixens. It is bad enough that, in film and other media, we are typically portrayed as soulless antagonists; even worse that one of our own, instead of striving towards better education and community relations, elects to present herself as just the kind of dehumanizing, sexist image of Extra-Terrestrial females that would make Shatner proud. No one is saying that you need to date within your species, but that you so shamelessly buy into the myth that only human is beautiful speaks to a lack of self-respect and a mentality that has bought into the lies of our oppressors.

Of course, if you are from the Cirrus System, please disregard this letter. I am well aware that you are in your hgroth-cycle and flush with egg-jelly that can only be fertilized through strong stimulation to your reproductive ducts, stimulation that males of your species may not be able to provide. If that is so, please accept my apologies.

Otherwise, need I remind you of the consequences of this kind of post, which only serves to fan the fires of intolerance? Do you need to be reminded of the deadly Native-Xenomorph riots of 1865 New York? The pogroms in Russia? The barring from professional industries in 1930's Germany? Or do you need to be reminded of the lives, both Terrestrial and Extraterrestrial, given to the cause of registering Xenomorphs to vote in the 1960's South? Please, educate yourself and refrain from making such incendiary comments in the future. If not, we may be forced to take legal action and have you banned from the craigslist site.

Xept Taarimor,
Dir. Community Outreach
