You are wrong, knowing that it's easy to please and get favours from Goddess (Lakshmi, Saraswathy, Parvathy etc.) for many including me they are there always in the mind. Only occasionally in specific locations and time others enter. In the South the number of temples for Goddesses are more. Christians too more often think of Maria (Mary) mother of Jesus Christ as his favours come routed thro' her.

Generalizations lead to false impression and that is how this misunderstanding is born.
In natural religions it is different; you often find a female God they see women as Donators of Life and not as Cause for Sin in the world.

This is ultimate Female Chauvinism. Do we also imagine only men when we say "Mankind"? In this Patriarchal society we take mother for granted and fear father. All those with Power and wealth are Males.
