I've attempted to do a little cleanup and provide context for some of the popular culture examples. I added references to how the giantess theme was used (whether as metaphor, eroticism, or for humor). I think this makes them a little more significant to the article (rather than just being a list of giantess appearances). Rajah1 02:44, 23 January 2007 (UTC)

”Giantess Magazine” – Spurious?[edit]

I suppose I risk being beaten to a paste by an enormous troll, but does the ”Giantess Magazine” shown at the end of the article really exist? There is no citation, the image was made by the uploader, I’m getting zero hits on Google, the charming user page seems to depict a fictional character, etc.

I’m guessing this is not a print magazine, and not even an e-magazine, just a mock-up cover. If there are any real magazines about giantesses, the page should show one of them. If there aren’t, the use of this image is pure disinformation. (talk) 21:18, 7 November 2010 (UTC)

Should giantesses in fiction be a seperate ategory from giants in fiction?[edit]

I think this is one of those categories like witch that is gender specific. CensoredScribe (talk) 20:52, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

Term Usage[edit]

Outside of erotica and fetish context, has the term "giantess" ever found common usage? In all examples of giant women throughout cultural works in history, do any of them use "giantess" rather than simply "giant"? I'd imagine that the article of Giantess should very clearly make the distinction that this term (unless I'm wrong) is largely a result of modern erotica and that instances of giant women before this time were not referred to as such.

Norse mythology[edit]

Remark I came to this page from the page about Baldr, a Norsh god. And apparently there is nothing mythological. Maybe some improvements can be done. improvements: redirecting between Jotuns and Giants in English, adding of content on this page.

Quite. I've restored some of the mythological entries; the fetish cruft remains to be winnowed down. Yamara 22:35, 11 October 2015 (UTC)
