Maybe this page would help click here
if you click for larger image on the pics you can see the male/female connectors and the difference.

In short male connectors have pins females dont.So the bit you push in the hole is male lol.

Standard ethernet cables will have a plug on each end, as such are male/male. You could use an RJ45CP coupler to link two cables click here, but I'd be tempted to just buy a long enough cable from ebuyer click here I've never been a fan of daisychaining data cable.
