Bear in mind that people aren't averages. On average more boys than girls excel at math, but no one told that to the chair of my university statistics department, or to my PhD advisor--both very talented mathematicians.
It is true that there is much more male than female players, actualy there are around 400 000 active male players, and around 60 000 active female players, but the best answer on this we can get if we take average ratings.
According to www.chessrating.info the average rating of all male players is: 1775 and average rating of female players is 1576, so it's clearly that male chess players are better than female!
