It's obvious what he means by male and female sperm, you Idiots. If you were as smart as you think you are then you would know what the question meant.

Men produce two types of sperm, those containing the X chromosome, (female sperm) and those containing the Y chromosome (male sperm). As the Y chromosome is smaller than the X chromosome the male sperm is lighter and faster than the female sperm and therefore gets a head start towards the egg. Female sperm being heavier have more staying power and can keep going for longer

Sperm cells are of two types male sperm and female sperm. Male sperm swim faster and live short life where as female sperm swim slowly but live longer. Male sperm make baby boy and female sperm make baby girl. I watched this on Dr. Drew program on discovery health.

Thank you "HAHA"!  We all know men are the ones who carry sperm, duh.  There are however x and y chromosome sperm.  If you want a boy have sex a few days around ovulation to up your chances.  If you want a girl have sex farther away from ovulation as they will love longer then the "male" sperm.  Good luck!

There is no female or male sperm; sperm are the male gamete, and they are all identical.  Whether the sperm are good or bad swimmers depends on the male body they grow in.

Please.. This is highschool science..I'm no genius but even 10 yrs after school has finished I can still remember the drill... Sperm are non gendered, the process of sexual derivation is during a stage of meiosis.. That is when the baby gets it gender..

Sperm are half the genetic code for the human dna, not x's or y's just half of the genetic code. And the egg is the other half, whilst both the egg and sperm go through the joining process there is a difference in the rate in which splits quicker or slower. The gender of the offspring is derived from this process.. I found some info on te net about it, sorting through a lot of rubish to find something worth referencing... The relavent info below.. And link provided for my sugested reading..

Not surprisingly,
gender differences are observed in the amount and placement
of meiotic recombination (reviewed in Lynn et al., 2004).
Recombination rates are approximately 1.6–1.7 fold higher in
female meiosis than in male meiosis and across individual
chromosomes, female recombination rates are higher than
males with the exception of distal regions, where male rates of
recombination are higher. The biological basis of this difference
between the genders is largely unknown, although it may
be controlled in part by sex-specific differences in the formation
of the synaptonemal complex (Lynn et al., 2002).

Males are the only one that can have swimmers, because females have eggs and not sperm. So the answer is the MALE. Because the eggs fertIlize the srerm to determine what sex it will be come.
