Hermaphrodite Impregnates Self, Gives Birth to Hermaphrodite Twins


MANILA, Philippines | Jose Maria Garcia, a 19-year old born with both ovaries and testicles and who has both male and female sex organs has given birth this morning at the Amisola Maternity Hospital, reports the Manila Times. 

Both babies were also born hermaphrodites, displaying physical characteristics and genitals of both genders, a “miraculous event” according to Dr. Xi Huan Chow, Medical director at Amisola Maternity Hospital.

“We are privileged to experience such an unusual birth” he told reporters, visibly happy with the turn of events. “Hundreds of people have come to witness these miracles of nature. Both babies are extremely healthy and vibrant with life,” he explained with enthusiasm.


The two hermaphrodite twins were named Hermes and Aphrodite, both parents of the god Hermaphroditus in Greek mythology

An unexpected birth

Jose Maria Garcia, the mother and father of the two children, admits the birth was not expected at all.

“I have never had any sexual experience with someone outside of myself. I was unaware that I could impregnate myself, but I would never go back even with what I know now. These children are beautiful and I am happy to share my life with them,” he told reporters.

An extremely rare chromosomal disorder

Most experts believe such an occurrence is impossible outside of the animal kingdom, although many cases of human self-fertilization have been reported in medical literature, explains leading researcher Dr. Akira Hashimoto of the University of Tokyo.

In asexual reproduction, an organism can reproduce without the involvement of another organism. Asexual reproduction is not limited to single-celled organisms. For example, a great number of snails and slugs are hermaphrodites. Hermaphroditism is also found in some fish species and to a lesser degree in other vertebrates,” he acknowledges. “The evolution of sexual reproduction is still a major puzzle for biologists,” he admits.

The first account of self-fertilization in history is ascribed to Juanita Franciscella, a Spanish street artist also known as the “bearded woman of Castilla”, who in 1483 is said to have given birth to a child of her own conception. The birth was judged heretical by the Spanish Inquisition and she was burned with her child at the stake.

    A wise man recently told me women were once asexual and used reproduced without men… he also said men are just mutations of women… just like white people are mutations of people of color.

    • That’s cool..but what does that have to do with this article or instance?.This is not asexual reproduction, this is sexual reproduction, involving the fusion of a gamete. Also, he/she is a hermaphrodite…not a woman. They possess BOTH sexes.

    • So what if it isn’t precisely what the article was about — it’s interesting information. Don’t insult people for contributing to the conversation.

      Hmmm, who is the wise man you speak of?

    • “Sniffs intensely” aaaaaaahhhh I can smell the grease dripping from this fat tumblr feminist.

  5. So…he and/or she creampied him and/or herself and +/- 9months later twins? Feel like I just watched Predestination again
