You must've saw >Godzilla instead of the X-Files... Godzilla was a tragic comedy. The story of a young hermaphrodite, unable to find fulfillment and acceptance in hir homeland after being exposed to the French, who journey to The City in hope of fame fortune and finding a family. Once there, having run afoul of the male-dominated media and military- industrial complex must fight hir life using all the methods at her disposal. Using the Subway and the evil arrogance all heterosexual white males possess in abundance, she manages to start he family only to be attacked by giant phallic submersible vessels. Upon hir escape s/he find that exploding flying phalli have killed her young. And the French were involved. So of course she goes to the Brooklyn Bridge and is assassinated by the military-industrial complex's fear of strong non-male, non-white characters. Of course I enjoyed it. P&SC
