* In ''[[Literature/WaxAndWayne Bands of Mourning]]'', the shapeshifter [=MeLaan=] reminds people in no uncertain terms that she is not bound to the narrow human mores of biology:
--> ''"Small breasts? Large breasts? ''Extra''-large breasts? Picking a bust size is vital to a lady's evening preparations!"'' '''(Later)''' ''"I solved the problem. I'll go as a fellow... Um, is this a problem?"''

* In ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', Grace was transformed into a male (and felt attraction to females) during much of her birthday party but [[http://egscomics.com/?date=2006-08-14 changed back to female]] when Tedd (at the time transformed into a female) got over his fear of liking a guy (however temporary that person was a guy) long enough to kiss her.

* In Due to the sheer amount of gender-bending going on in ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', you'd better believe this trope has come up:

** None of the other characters, however, show any sign of wanting to... "experiment" with sex changes, beyond Tedd and Grace occasionally swapping bodies with each other ([[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2005-02-11 yes, the the fact that Tedd doesn't have any problem being attracted to himself has been noted]]). It has been brought up occasionally, and rejected each time. Most of the characters find the idea of their sexuality changing to be quite a disturbing concept.

* In a slight twist, characters from ''{{Simoun}}'' are all originally female and able to choose their sex during a ceremony that marks them as adults. This of course means that one person in a relationship will give up being female to raise a family with their lover, with a few noteworthy exceptions, including one where ''both'' wound up male for various reasons, but eventually wound up together anyway.

* Elastic Man of ''Webcomic/EvilInc'', has no problem going either way. In fact, he's not certain if he has a gender.

** From the same mythology dept., Teiresias. (Although no "natural" shapeshifter - he killed the female of a pair of snakes having sex, and got turned into a female. 100 points if you find out how he turned back without using Wikipedia.)

* Mystique, also of Marvel, is made of this trope. Although not as much as Creator/ChrisClaremont wanted; she [[ExecutiveVeto was meant to be]] Nightcrawler's ''father'', [[HomosexualReproduction not his mother]].

* In ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'', M'gann once turned into ComicBook/BlackCanary for a roleplaying make-out session with ComicBook/{{Superboy}}. The real ComicBook/BlackCanary was not pleased when she saw the security tape, though MartianManhunter tried to explain that this was a common "game" on Mars, since everybody's telepathy made [[BedTrick actual deception]] impossible.

* OlderThanFeudalism: As a trope involving shapeshifting and sex, [[ClassicalMythology Zeus]] ([[DoubleStandardRapeDivineOnMortal GOD OF HORNDOGS]]!) naturally gets in on the action--with a twist. Most of the time, when Zeus decided to shapeshift in order to bang someone he found attractive (male or female, with or without permission), it was in the form of a male. However, when Callisto caught his eye, he was much chagrined to find that she had taken a vow of chastity in order to serve Artemis. However, he noticed that the vow of chastity left a loophole in that she ''could'' have sex with Artemis. Naturally, Zeus changed himself to look just like his huntress-goddess daughter, and had his way with Callisto. Somehow this got her pregnant, which, long story short, [[JustSoStory is why Ursa Major and Ursa Minor look like long-tailed bears, and also why (the Greeks thought) there are werewolves]].

* OlderThanPrint: Loki, [[NorseMythology Norse god]] of [[TricksterArchetype mischief]], is a shapeshifter. He was born a male, and two different goddesses have borne some of his children; by the giantess Angrboda, he sired the elder wolf Fenrir, the world snake Jormungand, and the half-dead Goddess of the Norse land of the dead, Hel. By the Aesir Sigyn, he had two sons: Nari (and/or Narfi), and Vali. In the form of a mare he also bore the eight legged horse Sleipnir, fathered by an actual horse.
