Anadewism questions 1: Gender marking

Part I of my questions.

Many languages only mark words for feminina and neuters,
leaving masculina unmarked. But are there languages where
males mark feminina while females mark masculina, maybe
even with the same marker? Or is that *too* sexist? ;-)
Things would become hairy in fairytales where objects such
as stones and trees or so can also speak. I guess thus, the
difference is only made for animates, in case the language
also has m/f inanimates.
