What does "all skirt, no cattle" mean, other than a slur on women?

The expression "all hat, no cattle" (or horse) is a cowboy or rancher metaphor that can be applied to anyone, male or female. Your substitution of "skirt" implies that Royal's only argument lies in exploiting her femininity (charm, good looks, etc).

If that's what you mean, then you should argue it properly. Or stop making allusions of this kind.
