Male and Female ports/adapters Answered

I just realized why computer or plumbing parts are called male and female. The female one is the one you stick something into right? The male one is the one you stick into something. I'm just saying who ever named them must have a weird mind. I realized this when one of my friends made a joke, so please don't say I am perverted.


well i wont say you are perverted, but you do come close because you posted this forum. Kudos to your friend for thinking that one up.

Perverted? Not at all. It is this way most of the time. It does make it easier to know what to get to hook to what you have, when it comes to cables, cords, plugs n sockets etc.
