devices have complementary genders (one female, one male) they need a
straight-through cable. A standard straight-through serial cable has
a male connector on one end and a female on the other.
If you think you need a gender changer, you probably really need a
null modem cable. There are exceptions to this, e.g. the kenwood D700
serial connector, which is an engineering screwup and you do need a
gender changer to use a standard cable.
