I wrote all this out, then couldn't decide if it actually counted or not. What do other people think?

  • Uryuoms in El Goonish Shive have alien biology almost as bizarre as Homestuck trolls. Two Uryuoms can create an egg, which they can then add their DNA to, but the genetic donors are not necessarily limited to the two Uryuoms who made the egg. Since Uryuoms are sexless (although they adopt human genders to fit into human society), that's not this trope. What can be this trope is when non-Uryuom genetic material is added to the egg, producing a "Seyunolu" or chimera. Since it doesn't matter whether the donors are male or female, it's as likely to be Homosexual Reproduction as not. (It's also liable to be species that really shouldn't be involved in conventional reproduction, of course, such as one of Grace's "parents" being a squirrel.)

Woah. This trope is wierd. I don't mind at all if some people are gay. However I didn't think it would physicly posible for such a couple to reproduce together. They are even trying to make this possible in real life. I knew it sort-of works with whiptail lizards, which was already given in the examples.

It reminds me of a fan-made picture of My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic. There is a slash of Flutter Shy and Rainbow Dash. They are lying together on a cloud. There was a foal flying by. She (or he) was pale blue, like Rainbow Dash, with a pink mane and tail, like Flutter Shy. I wondered whether that was sopposed to be thier baby. If so then that is an example of this trope. Flutter Shy is obviously a girl. Rainbow Dash is a girl too. Like the other mares, she even has visable eyelashes, [1], and a rounded muzzle, [2]. On the other hand she is a tomboy. I was wondering whether the artist mistaken Rainbow Dash for a boy. Who knows. Maybe Twilight Sparkle could temporarily turn Rainbow Dash or Flutter Shy into a stallion in order to help them out.

Sure. There is such an example listed. Loki is a god in Norse Mythology. He tuned into a mare, and seduced a stallion. They even had a foal, Sleipnir.

I'm not sure that isn't just Shapeshifters Do It for a Change. Shapeshifters often have pretty fluid gender identity (for obvious reasons) so calling one "homosexual" for turning into a female and seducing a male is... tricky.

I agree. This doesn't quite fit at all.

The current page image is hilarious. Might I ask what its origins are?

It's somewhere in Deviant ART... I see if I can find it.

Real Life: What I call "lesbian lizards" - this is cut'n'pasted from Wikipedia.

Desert Grassland Whiptail Lizard

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Scientific classification Kingdom: Animalia

Phylum: Chordata

Class: Reptilia

Order: Squamata

Suborder: Sauria

Family: Teiidae

Genus: Aspidoscelis

Species: A. uniparens

Binomial name Aspidoscelis uniparens Wright and Lowe, 1965

The Desert Grassland Whiptail lizard (Aspidoscelis uniparens) is an all-female species. It was formerly placed in the genus Cnemidophorus. These reptiles reproduce by parthenogenesis; eggs undergo a chromosome doubling after meiosis and develop into lizards without being fertilized. However, ovulation is enhanced by female-female courtship and "mating" (pseudocopulation) rituals that resemble the behavior of closely related species that reproduce sexually.[1][2][3]

The lizard lives in dry deserts from central Arizona to west Texas and south into Mexico.
