In essence, fonts have no gender. One style of typeface can also be used for several projects. For example: a clean, bold font can be put on wedding invitations, as well as posters, apparel, and book covers. The thing to remember though, is adjusting for concept.
Say you’re working on an office presentation and you need a font that would convey seriousness, boldness, and strength. Then you can use something like manly or masculine lettering. This style usually involves slab serifs, stencils, and distressed fonts. They are often characterized by added weight, or have a grungy or edgy effect.
