Seeds are from the female plant, however hop seeds are rarely true to type i.e. they are a hybrid of 2 different strains.
A single male can fertilise many female plants for miles around, this'll ruin your crop as you want the unfertilised flowers (cones) for your beer. As you don't know what male plant has fertilised the female, you'll be taking a gamble on any hops that you grow - the worst of which would be growing male plants.
