Are only Males (Man) made in the image of God and not Women? Well, Yes and also no. I used to be in agreement with the other commenters that man in verse 1:26 should be understood asexually as humanity and that there is no difference in the inherent image-bearing nature of either male or female humans...

So much confusion - because of the ‘added reasoning’. Just read the text exactly as it is, and don’t ‘add’. The understanding for this is actually quite simple. GEN 2:7 And 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. First, it says man, not Adam.
