Only female common ancestors?

Classification: Query
AncestryDNA presents me with 5 matches with hints, the four I can see so far (the 5th is a private tree) all identify a female common ancestor. Reviewing the cousin relationship chart, it appears that the relationship could have been mapped from either the male or female partner of the couple. I understood the autosomal DNA test to be independent of gender. Is it because I am a woman that AncestryDNA software is by default showing the cousin relationship from the distaff side?
