Not that you care, but . . .

This is a new wrinkle on the generic he / generic she issue:

"In RT [Relevance Theory], speakers or writers are commonly marked with feminine pronouns while hearers or readers are marked with masculine pronouns."

From Gene L. Green, "Lexical Pragmatics and Biblical Interpretation," Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society 50.4 (Dec 2007) 799-812.
