There's no such thing as "men in black". They're an invention of Albert Bender, who, IIRC, also wrote gay fiction.

It's my second favorite. "Clyde Buckman's Final Repose" is sheer genius. Scary, sad, moving, and hilarious ... all in 47 minutes. Brilliant.

In all seriousness, MIBs were actual government field agents trying to get people to shut up about their UFO experiences in the 50s-60s, especially when the Gov realized most UFO reports were actually unintentional observations of covert black projects and the UFO truth-finders were doing far too well at mapping, timing and categorizing them....In other words, UFO fans were doing the KGB's job for them. Most everyone with an interest in the subject finds out the Russians were intensely interested in American "flying saucer" stories during that time; now you know why.

Obviously, thuggery ultimately didn't work very well so the gov tried a new strategy. They put a great deal of effort into "muddying the waters" of the UFO community with bogus stories, hoaxed pictures and even going as far as to perpetrate convincing UFO hoaxes (not a hard thing to do with military hardware and a bottomless budget!) and so forth to make any potentially useful intel gleaned by the public useless.

Back to the MIBs; as it would obviously cause problems if it was revealed government agents were doing bad things to innocent American citizens who unfortunately happened to see things they shouldn't have, so an image of MIB characters being somehow "unhuman" and suggesting they were aliens themselves was carefully cultivated into the popular mythology. In fact, virtually the entire standard set of "official" UFO lore is a total bumsteer set in motion by smart people in high (yet still earthly) places for the purpose of keeping real secrets hidden.

That's not to say there's no truth whatsoever to the UFO phenomena; it's just far beyond the comprehension of most hairless bipedal apes. Nor are most intelligent nonhuman entities truly aliens born on another planet like us and using their technology to come here, but that's for another thread.

Does a woman in black count? Maybe it's some kind of Equal Opportunity thing.

It was back in the 90s about 2 days after I had seen a UFO while camping out - ordinary garden-variety saucer shape lit up with green light. Absolutely silent as it went down behind the trees.

A woman dressed in a black suit, no hat, came up to me at a picnic table while I was roasting some salmon on a big grill there at the park. We started talking about things and eventually about the UFO I had seen. I don't remember details about what we said. She seemed entirely human. If I remember correctly, she left in a black car.

That's it.
