hmmm this is interesting, giants used to feature alot in ancient stories. they were mainly male though. i am not sure but i think i may have read about something a bit like this in the past. wracking my brain trying to think what it was. i will do my best to have a good look round any of the sites i usually go to and see if i can find anything. if i do i will let you know.
