Follow TV Tropes
I wrote all this out, then couldn't decide if it actually counted or not. What do other people think?
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, , and a rounded muzzle, . 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.
Would a Voluntary Shapeshifter taking the form of the opposite sex count?
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.
Depends on what image was up when you asked. I've seen three.

Real Life: What I call "lesbian lizards" - this is cut'n'pasted from Wikipedia.
Desert Grassland Whiptail Lizard
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Species: A. 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.
The lizard lives in dry deserts from central Arizona to west Texas and south into Mexico.
