In brief: Hard to predict
As genetic research of stuttering is only in its infancy it is hard to predict which gender has more chance of transmitting the gene.
But as a rule of thump the sex that suffers less tends to be a bigger carrier, but it may or may not hold true in case of stuttering.

In brief: Not known
I am not aware of a sex-linked genetic causality for stuttering, although more men than women stutter. Wikipedia has an accurate entry on stuttering.
