That's at least correct.
If we apply our conception of God through the lens of our Earthly experience, then since we are all born of a woman, shouldn't God be female?
Sometimes I wonder if we're going down a slippery slope of trying to determine the gender of the Supreme Being. Just suppose (being devil's advocate-no pun intended), if God is a woman, is it possible that Satan can be a woman also? I'm just curious that those who describe God as a female, somehow (whether accidentally or intentionally) describe the devil as male, unless there was no other option. If Satan is evil, is he evil because he defied God or is he evil because he's male?
I could be horrendously wrong, but it seems we're trying to portray spiritual beings as guests on the Maury Povich show, (i.e. making God as female, but yet leaving Satan as male, therefore making him the evil "deadbeat dad/baby daddy" of the universe).
