Well, in canonical Glorantha, males are specifically not ruled out. The
broo larva does not need a womb just somewhere to root and draw blood
and other nourishment from. I once had a group of players who were
infested with broo larvae and had to find the missing deity who could
both safely deliver the children and cleanse them of their chaos taint.
(Turned out to be Firshala from the original Griffin Mountain....)

They then had to find one of the tiny nests of non-chaotic broo to bring
the children up in. But that's another story.

And while nothing is totally impossible to Chaos I'd imagine the broken
glass broo is very much one of a kind.
