"twoja" is not "a female speaking to a female". No Polish woman will ever say "twoja żółw" to anyone, because it's incorrect. The possessive pronoun has to match with the noun it describes, not with the person who is speaking. "żółw" is a masculine noun. So the options are: singular "twój żółw" (your turtle, Steve) and plural "wasz żółw" (your turtle, Steve and Bob).
What has to match with the speaker (or rather: with the subject of the sentence) is: the adjective describing the speaker ("I am tall" will be "Jestem wysoki" if said by a man or "Jestem wysoka" if said by a woman) and a verb in Past Tense/Future Compound ("I was in the store" will be "Byłem w sklepie" if said by a man or "Byłam w sklepie" if said by a woman).
