As David M. pointed out, you can use the level statement:

Binomial Proportion for Sex = M ャャャャャャャャャャャャャャャャ Proportion 0.5263 ASE 0.1145 95% Lower Conf Limit 0.3018 95% Upper Conf Limit 0.7508

Exact Conf Limits 95% Lower Conf Limit 0.2886 95% Upper Conf Limit 0.7555

Test of H0: Proportion = 0.5

ASE under H0 0.1147 Z 0.2294 One-sided Pr > Z 0.4093 Two-sided Pr > |Z| 0.8185

Note that 95% Upper Conf Limit (M) 0.7508 = 1 - 0.2492 95% Lower Conf Limit (F). I'll have to look at the documentation and its calculations to see if that always holds. Of course, that is not helpful for data with more levels.
