Why Did Fallen Angels Become Male Humans?

Q. My question is why were the fallen angels only attracted to human women and not men? If these angels were able to apparently shape shift and materialize into different bodies why couldn’t they transform into women instead and take husbands for themselves? It is interesting that they were only attracted to women. Does this mean they couldn’t transform into women or that angels are only masculine?

A. There’s no indication from the Bible that the fallen angels were monogamous. In fact, Genesis 6:2 can be interpreted as “they took wives of them, all that they chose.” History shows that if your goal is rapid population growth, having men with multiple wives is the best strategy. Since there were apparently numerous Nephilim, with works attributed to them being found in diverse places on Earth, one could logically assume that they became male and chose multiple wives for that reason.
