Position your cursor where you want the male or female symbols.
Make sure you are in code editing mode, not WYSIWYG.Type:

In wordpress you should be in the TEXT screen and see the symbols in the Visual Screen.

♂ - for the male symbol ♀ - for the female symbol

Save your file and open it in a Web browser to test that it worked.

You should see: ♂ or ♀
