Female equivalent of "creator"?
Or is it unisex?
I'm a programmer and I named a variable "creatingFunction", which sounds even worse than "creatorFunction".

a person or thing that brings something into existence:
James Bond’s creator Ian Fleming
water—the creator of climate and weather
- (the Creator) used as a name for God.
ODO defines the word creator as a person or thing — not just as a person, let alone a person of specific gender. The dictionary does not define a feminine gender of creator, nor does it list the word ?'creatrix'.
Furthermore, per OP's comment above, the hypernym function may be feminine in Spanish, but in English it is neuter.
