Metamorphosis: Secret of male and female

In the gnostic Gospels there are certain passages that indicate very secret metamorphosis of male and female. one of such passage,

"Simon Peter said to them, "Make Mary* leave us, for females are not worthy of life.'

Jesus said, 'I myself will lead her in order to make her male, so that she too may become a living spirit resembling you males. For every female who makes herself male will enter the kingdom of Heaven.' "

- The Gospel of Thomas.

* Here Simon Peter is talking about Mary Magdalene, the beloved companion, and as hinted from the gnostic gospel to be the most wise disciple of Jesus Christ (blessed be his soul).

Now i would like you to give your insight and thoughts on this particular text where Jesus says, for every female who makes herself male will enter the kingdom of Heaven. I find it very significant when see the details description of the Heaven found in The Final Revelation, the Quran are mostly talking about male. i just wonder, is there a grand mystical secret itside it which Jesus gave hint here, when Peter asked Jesus to reject Mary from the group?! What did Jesus really meant by saing, 'make her male'?

Quoting the text (pg. 145) from the Book titled, Jesus : the Unauthorised Version (ancient accounts of the unknown Christ), edited and introduced by Mian Ridge (2006). publisher: profilebooks
