Pagans, Wiccans, and all "similar": Am I confused?

First off, I'm not even sure if the terms Pagan and Wiccan are interchangeable or not. Is it similar to, say, Methodist and Christian, where one (Methodist) is part of a larger group (Christianity)? Just curious.

Secondly, and my main question: is the gender imbalance on R&S real, or am I just not seeing the men? It seems as if there are 9 women to every 1 man, and off the top of my head I can't think of one "regular" man. (No offense if I missed you, guys.)

If that imbalance is real on R&S, does it hold true in "real life" as well? If so, why do you think that is? Are men intimidated by what seems to be a (correct me if I'm wrong) goddess based belief system?

Many thanks for your kind answers.
Update: Stephen: "does not follow the teachings of Abraham" -- does that imply that Buddhists, Hindus, and so on are basically pagan?
Update 2: Less than half-an-hour in, and I'm already going to apologize to those who don't get B.A. -- many great answers and explanations.
