Well in this area they call them Orange Tabbies. What we call Ginger Tabby is like a Brown Tabby with orange interspersed with the pattern of brown, black, and grey. (The shelter where I volunteer held a whole class on this for those of us who take in surrenders, to cut down on changes that the exam room has to make to the information we enter during the intake of the animal.) So for us, yes anything Orange Tabby is usually male, but we consider calicos and torties to have "ginger" in them, not orange, so they are usually female.
Confusing, I know, but my vet is in a different area than the shelter where I volunteer and she agrees with the coloring so I guess it's a regional thing.
