Added DiffLines:

* Franchise/WonderWoman is an interesting case, while traditionally she was brought to life by magic combined with her mother's longing, Aphrodite's compassion and both of their love she has at different points been referred to as if she is their biological daughter as well. In some continuities Aphrodite gets help from a trio of other goddesses and Gaia is also oft used as Diana's other mother, as the clay used to form her body came from she.

Added DiffLines:

* OlderThanFeudalism example in ''Literature/TrueHistory'': after the hero and his crew return to the Moon after the failed war expedition against the Sun people, he's married to the King's youngest child, and then explains that Moon people, apparently all male, can reproduce and how: in a couple, the "husband" (above a certain age range) impregnates the "wife" in a spot in the back of the knee. The fetus then develops in the calf and upon growing big enough it's [[BodyHorror bodily removed]] from the leg. It's also mentioned that alternatively, Moon people can detatch their testicles and bury them like seeds, generating phallus-shaped trees that give birth to several Moon people. Also doubles as BizarreAlienReproduction.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/HashtagBlessed'': When the gods say their plan is to impregnate Joanna, she points out that half of them are female. They laugh and say that's not a problem for them.

** In Creator/{{Lopoddity}}'s Pandoraverse, same-sex couples with biological children include Rarity and Applejack, Bruce (an {{OC}} stallion) and Aerostorm (a Rainbow Dash/Dumbbell son), and Pandora (a Twicord daughter) and Cupcake (a Pinkie/Cheese Sandwich daughter). Justified in-universe, due to all cases of homosexual reproduction involving [[RealityWarper a draconequus]] either temporarily changing one half of the couple into the [[GenderBender opposite gender]] for a short while or actually being part of the couple. There's also the case of Bruce's female pet sea hawk and Pandora's pet chicken who had a clutch together, which Pandora chalks up to said hen spending most of her life in a high-Chaos magic environment.

* ''ComicBook/AmericaChavez'' comes from a dimension where humans are a OneGenderRace comprised entirely of women, yet still capable of having biological offspring. The mechanics of how this works are never revealed, it's just part of what makes her home-dimension a lesbian paradise.

* In Creator/WalterJonWilliams's novel ''{{Literature/Aristoi}}'', the (male) protagonist's boyfriend voluntarily becomes pregnant with the protagonist's sperm, using the commonplace technology of the far future. (It's so far in the future that people have godlike powers and can do just about anything.)



* In ''Literature/CourtshipRite'', the Liethe clan commonly create new clone-lines by fusing ova from two existing but not quite perfect lines, though they do also breed with the priests they seduce. Other clans do some broader gene-pasting. The maran-Kaiel brothers were produced from a complicated process combining Prime Predictor Taien's genes with genes from a past male Prime Predictor who died long ago.
* Creator/CordwainerSmith's "Literature/TheCrimeAndTheGloryOfCommanderSuzdal": When the planet Arachosia was originally settled, a bizarre happenstance, in the author's words, "rendered femininity carcinogenic". The end result is a [[OneGenderRace monosexual society]] of beings neither truly male nor truly female, incapable of conventional reproduction and with an abiding hatred of normal humans.



* ''Literature/HandOfThrawn'' leans a little more towards GeneticEngineeringIsTheNewNuke, but it turns out that [[spoiler:Major Grodin Tierce]] is a clone of [[spoiler:a Red Guard with a bit of Thrawn's mind added in]]. For that matter, [[Literature/TheThrawnTrilogy Joruus C'baoth]] could be considered to be the child of [[Literature/OutboundFlight the original C'baoth]] and Palpatine - we don't know much about his origins, sure, but while he looks like and thinks he's C'baoth, there's certainly an Emperor-ish cast to his thoughts and use of Force Lightning. That would make [[EvilKnockoff Luuke]], who is a clone of Luke but is an extension of C'baoth, another one of these.

* [[TheAntichrist Nicolae Carpathia]] of the ''Literature/LeftBehind'' novels is revealed in the prequel ''The Rising'' to be the son of two gay men, incubated in [[TheBeard one of their wives]]. You know, [[SarcasmMode because homosexuals are evil]]. Subtle as a sledgehammer.



* In Joanna Russ' novel ''The Female Man'', the narrator comes from an all-female planet in which couples reproduce by merging ova. She considers this obviously superior to mere parthenogenesis.

* In ''Literature/RangersAtRoadsend'' by Jane Fletcher, it is stated that the DNA of a gene mother is magically copied into her partner's ovum by a so called "imprinter", a person blessed by Celaeno. As this is all very secret and the temple is implied to be corrupt, it could just be science shrouded in mystery to be able to demand more money for it.

* Subverted in the ''Literature/TalesFromTheShadowhunterAcademy'' story "Born To Endless Night". [[spoiler:Robert Lightwood suspects that Magnus somehow did this magically when he and Alec suddenly adopt an abandoned, blue-skinned, warlock baby. Noting that Alec's eyes are deep blue, and Magnus's magic glows blue, Robert strongly hints that he thinks Magnus created the baby using himself and Alec as some kind of biological donors. Magnus is so stunned that he simply states that he is going to pretend that Robert never asked him about this. Which only seems to make Robert believe it more]].
* In ''Literature/TheTrialsOfApollo'', the third series of Rick Riordan's Greek Gods saga, Apollo mentions one of his kids' mortal parent is male. He then points out that his brother Dionysus was incubated and birthed from their father's leg so this shouldn't be so shocking.
* In Creator/WenSpencer's ''Literature/UkiahOregon'' series Jo and Lara's second child, Callie, is biologically related to both of them with the aid of a fertility clinic.
* The dystopian AfterTheEnd world of ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'' features the technologically advanced but politically eccentric state of Azania as one of the new nations built out of the rubble of America. The [[StrawFeminist ideologists]] who rule it have outlawed natural births, mandating that all reproduction be by cloning; by the time of the story, they are well on their way toward becoming a real OneGenderRace of lesbians.

* In the Sci-Fi series "Series/TheOrville" there is the Moclan race, who are an all-male species... who lay eggs to reproduce... and are sometimes born "female". They also urinate only once a year and can eat almost anything.

** In Creator/{{Lopoddity}}'s Pandoraverse, same-sex couples with biological children include Rarity and Applejack, Bruce (an {{OC}} stallion) and Aerostorm (a Rainbow Dash/Soarin' son), and Pandora (a Twicord daughter) and Cupcake (a Pinkie/Cheese Sandwich daughter). Justified in-universe, due to all cases of homosexual reproduction involving [[RealityWarper a draconequus]] either temporarily changing one half of the couple into the [[GenderBender opposite gender]] for a short while or actually being part of the couple. There's also the case of Bruce's female pet sea hawk and Pandora's pet chicken who had a clutch together, which Pandora chalks up to said hen spending most of her life in a high-Chaos magic environment.

** An established part of pony existence in the ''FanFic/TriptychContinuum'', courtesy of a unicorn working known as Mytilene's Truest Love -- although practically everypony just calls it The Most Special Spell. However, it has a number of restrictions. It only works on mares. (All attempts to find a stallion version which would work in conjunction with a surrogate mare have failed.) Pregnancy is not guaranteed: a mare under the spell's influence has the same chance of becoming gravid as she would at that point in her cycle. The spell generally only lasts one night, which means repeated castings are often necessary. Any pregnancy which does result is fully normal -- including the chance of miscarriage. And the foal will ''always'' be a filly. Castings are available free from the government, mostly to avoid con artists creating useless glow and leaving (or sticking around long enough to watch the conception attempt), along with arranging a health screening to access the chance of an [[InsistentTerminology "in the blood"]] disease being guaranteed in the offspring. Celestia saw that part coming -- but wasn't quite expecting centuries of the spell's use to push Equestria into a mare majority.
