I am a Roman Catholic -----
I could stop there, because that is what defines me. I am a child of God in full communion with the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church of Jesus Christ.
However, I shall provide some background. I am a college student from the United States of America. I have Same-Sex Attractions (SSA), and this is the primary focus of my blog. I’m here providing a witness to the multitude of people who feel alienated by this cross. I’m here to show them that the love of Jesus Christ, found most fully in His Church here on Earth, is offered to them without hesitation. I’m here to bring people to Christ.
Now, I’m also discerning priesthood, so please keep me in your prayers as I do likewise pray for all my followers.
If you'd like to contact me via email, because you'd like to keep the question private, or because you'd like to go into further detail, my email is happyandcatholic@yahoo.com. I check it weekly. Any question posed to me in my Ask box will be posted.

MC Lil Cat Turtle in da House: Jesus refers to God as a woman →

Or what woman, if she had ten drachma coins, if she lost one drachma coin, wouldn’t light a lamp, sweep the house, and seek diligently until she found it? When she has found it, she calls together her friends and neighbors, saying, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found the drachma which I had…

Have you gone to see what the early Church Fathers had to say on this issue? I have not, and I don’t know if they even talked about it. It probably wasn’t deemed too important back then.

It’s funny that you state that Elohim is a masculine plural, which can include females, and use that as an argument towards God’s androgyny. Since it’s still a masculine plural. That means it can also include only males. So considering that “proof” of your argument is not really valid. It doesn’t support or destroy your argument. It really has nothing to do with it.

The key to a good argument is to make every single point support your argument. Otherwise, you risk confusing your audience by saying unnecessary things. I could not, in example, use the fact that in Spanish the word “tios” can mean “uncles” or “aunts and uncles” to prove that in a group of people referred to as “tios” there must be females, because it could be all males. It’s really useless.

As for your other arguments, I have little knowledge in this area, and cannot comment.

Is God being a male sexist? That is a good question. If He is, then we can’t really call it sexism because God is all good. If He isn’t, then it really doesn’t matter. Jesus called Himself the Son of God. He called God “Father” and told us to do the same. The Apostles and Church Fathers used masculine forms to speak of God, though I don’t know of any specific writings about God’s gender.

Does it really matter?

God is God is God. Don’t over focus on trivial issues.

What race was Jesus? Much art conveys Him in many skin tones. What race was Mary? She’s appeared to many people as one-like-their-own. It’s trivial. Their personhood is not affected by their race. God’s Godhood is not affected by His gender. Galatians 3:28 is a good verse for this.

God Bless!
