Why are motherboards called motherboards not fatherboards?

@PeterCxy That's because the original motherboard is full of female plugs 😶

@PeterCxy because fathers aren't always as intimately involved with children. It's similar to mother earth, which has always been with us, but I'm not sure how a father planet would look like
