Only if the bloodline was cursed, even then that would probably by preventing the men producing sperm. Now that I can imagine being very Babester Gor. But then Nandan wouldn't get pregnant either.

That's assuming he gets pregnant through sexual intercourse, it could be an immaculate conception.

Perhaps Androgeus is a priest of Nandan. Even in the RW some children are born with both sets of sexual organs, if this was more common in Glorantha the cult could be where such individuals end up. Such complications make modern ideas of homosexuality rather irrelevant.
