Does God have a gender?

In the Holy Bible, God is always referred to in the masculine singular, with a capital letter - He. In the religion Islam, there is no feminine for Allah, their word for God. Does this mean that God is male? Or is it male-dominated human society which has created this datum? Would God be angry to be called "She"? Give your opinions here.

Yes, it's totally wrong. God is male, and would be furiously angry
Yes, it's wrong. God is quite simply male
It's somewhat wrong, because it sounds wrong
