From your own post..... I just changed what was in bold.

Are you implying that they were made at the same time?

Gensis Chapter 2

7And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

18And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

19And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.

20And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.

21And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;

22And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

23And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

.

Even if you take this literally, which most Christians don't: What length of time do you imagine between giving the first souls to the first two humans?

God is one of those fictional characters where gender doesn't really matter - saying god is a woman is about as significant as when Jodie Whittaker was cast as Dr Who, or as Parker Posey playing Dr Smith in the new Lost In Space.

The question is whether it is blasphemy to say God is a woman. The implication that this is disproved by the stated order of creation in Chapter 2 of Genesis is that Eve's status is lower than Adam's. The stated order of creation in Chapter 2 is different from that in Chapter 1 - showing that the Ancient Hebrews were not so absolute and literal in their understanding of the order of creation. In Chapter 1 Adam and Eve are both created in God's own Image on the same "day" - Day 6.

.

In my view, other than Jesus, God is neither man nor woman. God the Father is often associated with males but is neither and God the Holy Spirit is ofter associated with females but is neither. To find the best attributes of either gender in the attributes of God is to recognise that the best in us is a reflection of God - and that can only be a good thing.

Exactly. God, like Doctor Who, can be whatever gender or non-gender their writers ascribe.

.

And the same goes for whether or not something is considered "blasphemous".

.
It's like asking "Does Darth Vader like cherry tomatos?" It depends on who is writing the Star Wars fan-fiction.
