My apologies if I'm not too great a communicator in this kind of thing. I'll try to be clearer. God did indeed create mankind in his own image, but according to Genesis: And the Lord God said, "it isn't good for man to be alone; I will make a companion for him; a helper suited to his needs " Gen 2:1...
It seems that the horse is being put before the cart. God created man, so rather than God having male qualities, it would be truer to say man has god-like qualities. God created man in His own image.
