I think feminists have argued about it... they say that text books and stories always use gendered language that favours males...
Hope this helped ^_^

As well as the "he", "she", "him" and "her" used in textbooks there is things such as housewife rather than homemaker and policeman rather than police officer. Just basically when you give a career a gender or a person a gender when it could be done by either gender. :)
