Daniel Rogers



Daniel Rogers was born on March 22, 2012 at 6:23 a.m. at St. Andrews hospital in Rochester, Minnessota. All the papers had reported it accurately. A picture of the Baby Rogers was on the cover of every local, national, and foreign newspaper, under large headings that read “Wonder Baby” or “Lone Rogers” or, according to translations of the foreign papers, something like “Miracle Baby.”

From looking at Miss Bobbi Rogers, one would not be able to tell from the outside, apart from the large hump in her belly, if she were indeed a female or a male. However, the compelling part of Miss Rogers’ story lay in the fact that one would be equally confused when viewing underneath the woman’s clothing. For in fact, Miss Rogers was not simply a hermaphrodite; she was, according to modern medical science, the only known living mammal in recorded history to have been born with both functioning female and male sex organs. S-he had ovaries that produced viable eggs as well as testicles, which produced fertile sperm.

Remarkably, with the right kind of positioning and a strange, slightly uncomfortable—though highly pleasurable—action, Miss Rogers could actually have sexual intercourse with herself and self-procreate. Hence, the miracle Baby Rogers. The first human to be born from the efforts of a single human since the Baby Jesus.

No one was quite sure what the Baby Rogers would be once out in the world. On the ultrasounds and cardiograms and other dozen medical exams performed throughout the birth, the doctors, who were baffled, saw nothing physically wrong with the baby from the inside. And they were quite right, as the baby was born perfectly healthy, which according to them was indeed a miracle of sorts. Though, no one could foresee in what state the baby’s brain would be. In other words, would he be challenged mentally in some way? Would he be deaf or blind or perhaps somehow intellectually deformed? A question that would prove impossible to answer until the child had reached an age at which normal infants begin to respond to regular stimuli. For now, though, the Baby Rogers seemed perfectly and wondrously perfect.
