Male seinor architect bullying junior female developer. What to do?

I've only been working at my current employer for 4 months. I'm new to the technology and to the business domain. I basically don't know much about anything.

I am working on the front end of the web application and I've never worked on back end anything in my entire life.

I need to ask the senior dev questions about what the server expects and every time I ask this person a question or ask about a possible server-side bug the man rips my head off.

He gets extremely agitated and says stuff like 'you're knowledge of this or that..' and shakes his head. I just started how would I know this information?

I feel burnt out because I can't get the information I need to do my job without being subjected some kind of hostility. I want to quit.

I find it very strange that he said he wishes there were more women in this industry but then rips my head off?

What should I do?
