I have a statue of Hecate on my altar. She is the aspect of divine I most identify with and have for as long as I can remember. Goddess of Witches and Magick...The Cosmic World Soul, Keeper of the Crossroads, Lady of Darkness, Lady of Death...etc. She is the aspect of Divinity that, for me, is most real and resonates with my spirit. She is, for me, the one that all other aspects of the Feminine Divine have come from...whatever their names be.

I was raised in a very christian household...and grew to loathe that belief system with a hard passion. I do not identify with any male aspect/god, although I recognize the duality and balance in Nature and the Cosmos. My reasons for lacking the desire to have a male 'god' representation on my altar, or my magickal workings, stems from my utter loathing of the largely patriarchal, misogynistic societies rampant in the world; as well as a childhood full of physical and sexual abuse at the hands of a paedophile stepfather who used religion as a way to justify his crime. My opinion of the male of the species, with very few exceptions, is that they aren't worth the powder it would take to blow the majority of them to whatever hell they may or may not believe in.

All that being said, I would say I was a polythieist. ;)
