Well, you see when two cables love each other very much they decide to connect and transmit data.

It’s not just usb cables.
When I was struggling to connect the hose to the tap to fill up my paddling pool like summer my cousin made a comment about did I have the right male & female parts. Found it quite puzzling tbh.

She is dropping a hint 🤣 you missed it
Just realised this on Monday yeah I know why that's the case to be honest and don't see the point of it.

Also French and Spanish be like: pff that's nothing, we have a gender for everything: chair; desk; microwave; milk, you name it.

It's really obvious why. Just look at it.

The pc (politically correct) names of plug and socket should be used for gender neutrality. smh.
It should all be even more obvious when you realise that they sell caps for the female USB socket!
