This episode is one big plot hole. If we assume that all Moclans are 'males', procreation would, in this case, be unisexual, and the concept of 'maleness' and 'femaleness' would not even be in the lexicon of the race. Also, in that case, all Moclans would be exactly the same genetically (barring any mutations), and look exactly the same (for the most part).
Now, in this episode, we learn that there are still two genders in the Moclan race, but females are all altered to be males. In this case, the question of how reproduction occurs is still confusing, as it appears that 'males' have all the necessary equipment to reproduce and continue the existence of the race (males mate with males), which actually implies the race is hermaphroditic. If that were the case, Moclans which were exclusively female (or male, for that matter) would have been bred out as useless long before the race had developed the ability (and thus the need) to convert females to males.
