Are you sure it is a serial port?  15-pin connectors are typically for VGA adapters.  What are you using that has a 15-pin connector?

Callandor is correct (as usuall :)

serial ports are 9 or 25 pin (and are always MALE on the PC, or NTE (Network terminal equipment) though I dont see many 25 pin serial lines these days (unless they are doddering old UNIX RS232 connections) - or PIX firewalls

There is no electrical difference between the male and female versions - just make sure you connect to the correct pin, like pin 1, when called for, because they are mirror images.
