I like the balance, too, that a goddess & her male consort, both equally important, bring to the game. And of course, the terms god & goddess & consort are metaphoric in nature.

Why limit God with our human characteristics?  I see God as a complete unified being with masculine and feminine traits of personality.

One's reality is another's nightmare.

Don't think this has anything to do with God being male or female, more to do with man's lust and need for fulfilling his desires!

how human of us to attach gender roles to our deities

JGirl, I totally get your point, but unfortunately with the Christian Biblical texts that state God is your Father, Mary though human was female.
There is no mention of a Mother in Heaven, only God the Man-Father.

Isn't that what humans are?

You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world..

Be cheerful.

Strive to be happy.

Rephrasing: God contains the full integration of all traits which humanity divides into masculinity and femininity (and probably some other traits of which we can't conceive).

I can accept that as likely. In my understanding,  in christian theologygod did not create MAN  in gods image but humanity. Not necessarily in any physical resemblance, but in terms of what it means to be self aware and able to think at a human or more complex level. As an evolutionist I think that god and humans both evolved similar traits and chaacteristics which allow us to recognise and commuicate with each other. I understand god and perceive "him" best as a male because i am a male. if i was a woman I would, perhaps, perceive and understand god as a woman

The closest person to Jesus was a woman, Mary of Magdala, if we can rely on the bible and gnostic texts, as companion, confidant and messenger. Mary has been much venerated over the years as, with Mary the mother of Jesus, she replaced the missing feminine element which had been so important to most previous religions. Jesus's attitude to women was clearly a major factor in his mission and his treatment by the Jerusalem authorities.

A woman yes, probably. Though most likely she was a child who had just come to puberty and was around the age of 11 or 12.
Jesus's attitude to women or girls, could be seen to be that he didn't quite appreciate the men in his life.

God is defined as a entity Without gender or other characterist,thus giving this"Male God" or "Goddess" the title of "Demi-God" or "Demi-goddess",which is clearly not a god

Well through some my studies, the feminine concept of the divine came before the masculine. Mainly because women were looked at as the primary producers of life. The masculine was looked at as a half of the feminine energy. Going back into ancient cultures, many people actually don't know that the Sphinx of Giza portrays a woman and  the primary deities of Egypt prior to their Sun deities was Bes and Taweret. Bes for those who didnt know was a hermaphrodite showing the female/male sides equally in the concept of God.
