Question: Why do people call God a man and the devil a man? Which one is the man and which one is the woman. I would think God is the woman and the devil the man. The reason is if it wasn't for the woman, the world could not go on. There would not be no one here because women have the children to make this world go on. So which one is the man and which one is the woman?

Answer: God can be called a man because when He came in the flesh, that flesh was male. Since Jesus Christ is God manifested in the flesh. God is indeed a man, though He is not limited to being man.

The devil is only spirit. He cannot be called a man.

Your theory that without women, the world could not go on because there would be no people is interesting. Suppose you are correct and there were no men, only women. I wonder how those women would get pregnant!
