At first glance, the distinction between male and female connectors is somewhat counter-intuitive. “Male” or “female” refers to the metal pins within the connectors rather than the actual plastic housing of the connectors.
The housing of the male connector has a large opening at the end, with the actual pin inside. The connector of the female pin, however, has a long tip goes fits into male connector when the two are mated.
