Only Spartan women give birth to Spartan men

We do not need to venture much further than the lede: "Nepali women rush for Gurkha training".

More than 1,500 Nepali women have signed up with private firms to train for a possible career with the British Army after it allowed them to join the Brigade of Gurkhas for the first time in nearly two centuries. Britain is studying how Nepali women could be recruited for its Gurkha force and authorities took out a newspaper advertisement this month asking women to give "notification of interest".
