They conquered Afghanistan and took Russia in the winter. The Spartans wouldn't have stood a chance.

China Didnt have a damn army and 4/5 of Russia was so rural that they didnt have any defense either.

spartans were always prepared for war, they had their weapons right near their side. I dont think it would be possible to sack a barrack full of spartans without losing your own men.

secondly, spartans fought unitied, mongols just went full on melee. Theyre only advantage was horses and a proper battle position with spears could defeat the mongols. Mongols are weaksauce compared to Spartans.

mongols were heavy cavalry based while spartans had long ass spears and various formations to counter cavalry

It is fair to compare mongols to vikings as they both fallowed a similar battle strategy. **** all and go kill them. Now according to deadlyst warrior a Samurai can slaughter a viking. And from the same show Spartan > Samurai

Sparta won the Peloponnesian War, so they got to write the history books.

It's about contradicting historical sources. It's very hard to find something that is reliable when it comes to things this ancient. It's just like the Thomas Edison vs Nikola Tesla debate; there's just as much evidence favouring each of them.

Like Napoleon (allegedly) said, history is but a fable agreed upon. It really could be either of them.

I don't think it is so much that the sources contradict in this case, but rather this post is all true, but leaves out a lot of information that makes it a lot less glamorous.

Actually, women in Sparta strictly obeyed the word of their fathers until they were married. Then, the wife was supposed to do exactly what her husband said or be punished. If they did not bear good children, they were punished and forced to do more exercises. If they couldn't bear children at all they were useless and went unmarried.
The Spartans were barbaric people who only believed in war and preparing the strongest army. Hollywood has plagued history by making the masses actually believe their ********.

Now, I understand that tumblr posts (a majority of them) have a funny little sense of humor they use, with their facetious use of caps lock and hyperbole, and I think it's funny. However, when I see it so often, it really starts to bum me out. Does it bother anyone else? I'm not saying no one should enjoy the tumblr sense of humor, go ahead I have no problem with that, but I personally can't stand it anymore. It just gets so old to me and makes me hate seeing the tumblr posts.   
Sorry for posting an unrelated comment, here's an unrelated gif (well it's kind of related in a way)

kinda like Celtic women. Celtic women were terrifying. they didn't even NEED weapons. when the Roman Empire ATTEMPTED to invade Scotland, they're accounts of Roman Soldiers literally quaking in fear if a Celtic Warrior called upon his woman to fight. they would fight with punches, kicks, and their OWN. *******. TEETH. Celtic women were bad ass.

They were also usually in charge with teaching combat.
Most likely because the Celtic men were out fighting Romans naked except for a gold band around their neck, war paint, and hair they spiked up and bleached with citrus.

My family moved from the mountains where sparta used to be right before my father was born. I just want to say that not only can spartan women fight like the devil, but they came cook one hell of a feast afterwords. God damn so much good food.

Spartans: by far my favorite group of people in history.

I think; If this is true, then Sparta was quite dahm special, and i approve of the badassery of their culture. Any form of gender equality is quite rare in history
