Burana Tower, Tokmok, Chuy, Kyrgyzstan
The tower, along with grave markers, some earthworks and the remnants of a castle and three mausoleums, is all that remains of the ancient city of Balasagun, which was established by the Karakhanids at the end of the 9th century. An external staircase and steep, winding stairway inside the tower enables visitors to climb to the top. The tower was originally 45 m (148 ft) high. However, over the centuries a number of earthquakes caused significant damage to the structure. In the early 1900s, Russian immigrants to the area used some of the bricks from the tower for new building projects. 
A legend says that a witch warned a local king that his newly-born daughter would die once she reached the age of eighteen. To protect her, he built a tall tower where he hid his daughter. No one was allowed to enter the tower, except a servant who would bring the princess food. She grew up alone without knowing the beauty of her land. One day, however, a poisonous spider was hiding in the food brought by the servant. The spider bit the girl, and she died in the tower - when she was 18. (x)

I know my crappy pics don’t fully illustrate my point
I’m just sick of going to movies or reading comics and out of the infinite possibilities out there for aliens, male aliens are the only ones who ever have any sort of variety

This is why Star Trek > everything. Female aliens come in both sexy and non-sexy… and so do the male. And a ton of species are nonbinary.
