Hey, not all females.. that 3rd photo you got both on one spike. (I think it is so cool when they do that! What's the name? Definitely looks like some Ctsm. tenebrosum in that one!) And the last one looks like you're going to get males.

that one is ctsm brent's black hawk 'xint' X ctsm Dark tale 'black surprise'

from another view it looks like a female flower with the odd hood, it is at least way cooler to look at

Definitely a male flower. And careful in moving it around... takes nothing to fire off the pollinia. (I hate to take these to society meetings... I always lose several and therefore lose the flowers soon after)

The Ctsm. tenebrosum is really dominant... Brent's Black Hawk is 3/4 tenebrosum, and Dark Tale is 1/3 tenebrosum. Actually, both have Ctsm. Donna Wise as one parent. Fred sure knows how to breed dark flowers!Take a look at the pedigree in OrchidRoots Really neat things in the parentage.

Too bad on all of the female blooms. But at least this is proof that your culture is spot on. Have you tried any cycnoches species or hybrids? The nice thing about them is that even the female blooms are beautiful (and the scent is unbeatable too, especially for Cycnoches warscewiczii and chlorochilon). So no need to worry about which gender you'll get. Hopefully you'll get some males next season on you catasetums.
