The Irish-language Wikipedia article on Esperanto has this:

Teanga idirnáisiúnta is ea an teanga Esperanto (baineann Gaeilgeoirí áirithe úsáid as an leagan Sprantais freisin).

Am I reading that right?  Some female speakers, and only female speakers, use Sprantais?  Why only females?

“baineann ...  úsáid as” means “makes use of” here.  “baineann” is a form of the verb “bain”.  It has nothing to do with females.
