The image of a masculine God is just a common interpretation of the Bible. There is nothing in the book that makes reference to God's gender.
I'm not sure if this is right but most accounts claim angels are both sexes and are appealing to both women and men. This isn't a sure thing it's just a possibility.

“And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they [were] fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also [is] flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. There were giants in the earth in those days and also afterwards, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare [children] to them, the same [became] mighty men which [were] of old, men of renown.” Gen 6:1-4

Angles do not have a gender. If you really ponder, do they even need a gender? They are a creation from God to serve Him and protect us. They do not reproduce either.
Colossians 1:16 - "For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether [they be] thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him"
Angels are not human; they are spirits that are not physical beings. In the Bible, angles do appear in the form of men, not women, only if God commands them to but they do not have human features such as feet and faces.
Human beings are male or female because, in a sense, we are incomplete. Almighty God does not have a gender. With no intent to be disrespectful, God does not have genitalia. God is referred to as "He" for cultural reasons. The angels, as a creation of God, are whatever gender He chooses to make them for their role or assignment as messengers.

When we say we have an angel watching over us, what does that mean? What do you expect the angel does for you? I believe in angels-as many people do, and I have my own beliefs in who my angel is and what he is watching out for-but I would like to know what other people’s perception of an angel is?

Women. God’s afterthought and man’s curse to rule.I think it quite ironic that God, who tells us to reproduce as his first commandment to man in Genesis 1, does not give us something to reproduce with till Genesis 2; 18. Further, only after a severe chastisement without correction, even to...

I just to the time to reread Genesis as it had been a while since reading all of it. Do you think it's a lesson in morality? Would you read it all to children?
