Hermaphrodite Impregnates Self, Gives Birth to Hermaphrodite Twins

MANILA | 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.

    How is it possible how do he or she inpregnant there self?

  3. Jose Maria Garcia Im so proud of you and congratulations,You are so very beautiful,I would love to meet you and see you smile.🌹

  4. I’m curious to know, how do we knw they’ve never had sex with anyone outside themselves?

    And, does that mean they stuck semen up their vaj? Why would they do that?
    And, usually when a fetus comes from so closely related, say as in incestuous relations, there is an extremely high risk of birth defects and/or retardation. This is why there are incest laws.

    This person is perhaps lucky this time to have healthy kids, unless and until we hear otherwise;
    They may not be so lucky in the future. And we do not know if the second generation will have future defects.
    And, did their parents have “The Talk” with them about the birds and the bees?

    I’m not so sure it is a miracle as much as it is an anomaly; both, for which one would have better odds winning the lotto and it would be more preferable.

    There’s still that embarrassing little matter of self-fkery, tho. How DOES one do it? The rest of the world needs “The Manual” for when they’re told to EFF themselves. This is Empirical Evidence!

    Congratulations, I guess?

      Dear reader please take in the consideration that hermaphroditism is different from inbreeding. hermaphr-Oditisim is a form of cloning using the same genes from the parent cell dividing and multiplying. While inbreeding has two self- sterile species only able to outcross with the other species then if they’re offspring back-breeds with the parent species it’s offspring will be infertile or horribly mutated

    • You should ask yourself “why it is so hard for me to congratulate and be happy for a mother who just gave birth?” In your world of rules, this may be impossible. But luckily we are not living in that world.
