I like spacelings.
We are all spacelings.
I grew up with the "people" or the "beings" from outer space. Remember "martian"? There was even the Blob.
Seems like the "good" space
beings looked like handsome people. The bad beings were ugly or objects.
Not quite sure when we started calling them "aliens", but one of the funniest headlines I read was the one (from the 1980's) that read, Alien
Hordes Massing At The Border. That was one scary headline, until I realized it meant there were a lot of Mexicans (or Nicaraguans, El Salvadorans,
etc.) starting to live right below the southern US border.
No duh, all the maquiladoras having been built, attracting Mexicans northward, plus all the American involvement in Central America to keep the
Commies at bay but also driving those nations' citizens northward. Talk about fear back then...many Americans were made to fear that those alien,
Commie hordes were going to march across the border, bust down their door and shoot them (after raping the womenfolk).
Honestly, I knew people who
E.T. be damned, fear ALL aliens!
