If you ever questioned the gender of God (as in the God Almighty, Maker of Heaven and Earth), there is little doubt in my mind that God is a man. Now, I do not base this on the male identity assigned to him in the Bible, or God Forbid (no pun intended) that he is a he because the Bible says so, rather I consider his actions.
Take child birth for instance. If God were a woman, this would be a condition regulated to both sexes. She would want the man to truly appreciate the pain and agony of birth. Not that women do not appreciate or love the joy of bringing a new life into the world, why limit the joy and pain to one gender.
If God were a woman, there would be no disparity among the genders. The centuries of women being socially and politically held down by men, would never have been an issue. There would be equality among the genders. All people, male and female, would have every opportunity known to man. Those last words, just another reference to the domination of men. If God were a woman, the reference of "mankind" would most likely be "to men and women". Should we applaud the term "mankind" as the inclusion of the female gender - as a kind of man? I think not. The references never end.Speaking of the the male tense. If God were a woman would the Declaration of the United States state "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal . . . " I doubt it. Neither the words "woman" nor "she" are mentioned in the text of that document.
