I want to be able to print names for grandchildren to do baptisms but as I am female the program only identifies female names for me to print.

I am just another 'lowly' User/Patron ...
[ And, I happen to be a Member of the Church ... ]
Although, you have not specified such, I believe that you are using "OrdinancesReady" ...
IF, that is the case; THEN, ...
Short Answer: You CANNOT.
You are not alone ...
The request, that we be able to "Print", the "Temple" Cards, for the opposite "Gender", from ourselves, is a FEATURE that MANY (Member) Users/Patrons have yearned for and requested.
We can ALREADY, "Print" the "Temple" Cards, for members of the opposite "Gender", to ourselves.
We can do that ourselves, in "Family Tree" of 'FamilySearch", in the "Ordinances" 'Tab', of our Ancestors.
We can (both, "Reserve"; and,) "Print", the "Temple" Cards for whichever "Gender" we desire, Male; or, Female; as, there is NO restriction.
That Said ...
What you request is SOMETHING that "OrdinancesReady" was SPECIFICALLY designed NOT to be able to do.
Please let me explain ...
Please be aware that the "OrdinancesReady" feature/function/facility is ONLY, really, for a quick; and, easy, process of, FINDING; and, PRINTING, the "Temple" Cards, when one is going to visit the "Temple", that day or the next, when one DOES NOT have ANY "Temple" Cards, 'on-hand', available.
The "OrdinancesReady" feature/function/facility is certainly NO substitute, for doing one's due diligence, well IN ADVANCE of visiting the "Temple" of, FINDING; and, PRINTING, the "Temple" Cards, for one's Ancestors, to have 'on-hand', available; regardless, of the "Gender".
Hence, the reason, that we ONLY get "Temple" Work, for people, of the SAME "Gender", as ourselves, is a DESIGN Feature of "OrdinancesReady".
Although, I totally understand your request.
I would humbly suggest that, your request, may not be considered as appropriate, in view of the intended Design.
Here are some "Knowledge Articles" in 'FamilySearch':
Where it states, among other things;
Ordinances Ready is designed to provide family name cards for the person signed in to the website or the Family Tree app. For example, if you are female, it only searches for ancestors who are likewise female so that you can perform their ordinances.
Ordinances Ready finds names for you that are your same sex (that is, male names for male users and female names for female users).
Who is to say things will not change in the future ...
I know that this does not help; but, I hope this gives you some, insight; and, perspective.
Thank you Brett! I appreciate the time you took to reply. Meg
In order for you to print out male names, you will need to reserve them from the individual's ordinance page. These names will allow you 2 years to get them completed, after the temples reopen fully.
Wishing you success in reserving male names, printing cards, and allowing your grandkids to do the ordinances.
