      I thought all fonts were just 'bastards'.

        Maybe your fonts are PD, but mine aren't!!

            Have you tried a Google search? Not that I think there is such a thing as male or female fonts...

                lol... This is the first I've heard of it too, but I suppose you could genderfy your fonts the same way many languages add gender to different nouns. For instance, a train is male, a bicycle is female, etc.

                I'm still picturing Mr. PD trying to print a stubborn font and crying, "You bastard font!!!"

                  I've heard of orphan fonts. But they're orphans, no one cares about them, no one cares if they're male or female.

                    I'm thinking the same way Ckret is, not "male" or "female," but "masculine" and "feminine."

                    Futura Bold is masculine, Shelley Andante is feminine. But it's really really subjective.

                        in the os9 days when you couldn't match a bitmap font with the outline font or visa versa they were called orphan fonts.

                          Ooh, oh... I get what you mean. Post-script outlines. Those really bug me when that happens.

                                If your theme is responsive, it should do it automatically based on the layout you choose.

                                With regards to the logo you attached, no offense intended, but the first thing that hits me when I see it is "PMS".
