Faced the same problem a few weeks ago. You need a propane torch and an ice pack. Put the ice pack around the male portion and heat the female portion with a propane torch. Then, using a big screwdriver hit the female portion in a direction to unseat it repeatedly. It takes two people. The first 1/32 of an inch took many blows, the next 1/8" less and finally I was able to twist it apart.
If you have ready access to it, dry ice would be preferable to the ice pack but the ice pack worked for me.
