    Go to Settings>General>Siri>Language. When you do this, you will see this screen, where you can select the language, United States English in your case.

    Have you tried rebooting the iPad? Press and hold the power and home buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, then release both buttons. Let us know if that works.

    Try turning Siri off, waiting a few minutes, then turn it on again. When you slide the switch to off, you'll get this pop up.

    I'm in the UK too and mine changes to female instantly when I change the settings as Scifan describes.

    Try asking the male Siri for a commitment. That outta scare him away. ;)

    In all seriousness though, Scifan's suggestion is the only one I could come across upon searching google.
