Yes, but you have example here Nosotras somos hombres. Is that correct?

Nosotras for all-female groups. Nosotros for all-male OR groups of mixed gender.

As in English the male form is the default for mixed or unknown situations. This is true of most Spanish terms where there is a choice.

And if I am not mistaken, nosotros means we. So, if you are a man then you would always use nosotros and never use nosotras.

Isn't "Nosotros no somos hombres" wrong? Cause if, we are not men, then we are women, in which cause shouldnt it be Nosotras?

Let's say that you are hanging out with friends. You are a female with female friends: Nosotras (we girls/we women). You are a male with male friends: Nosotros (us guys/us men)

nosotras is feminine nosotros is masculine

https://www.duolingo.com/lukaszwojcik

So, is it correct to generalize the rule that "nosotros" means "a group of men" or "a group of majority of men", whereas "nosotras" stands for "a group of women" as well as "a group of people most of which are women"? Then it would work exactly the same as in Polish.
