I dislike "he" too, though I may use it out of linguistic convention. My God is both man and woman.
Isn't that contradictory? The feminine is closer to spirituality than the masculine, yet God, the ultimate representation of the spiritual, is both of them?
I never understood why some look at the masculine and feminine principles and say one is "more" spiritual than the other. It sounds like projection to me. "This feels like a more genuine expression of myself than that so clearly the other one must be flawed." All it does is stigmatize half of the natural order, and that ain't very "spiritual" in its effect.
