not all authors are "he"

why? why do students do this?

ANNE Lamott.

ANNE is not a man's name.

Really people, come on.

Then again, for the final exam last semester, I told them all to refer to the author as "she" and only half of them actually did.

In that instance, the "he" was Adrienne Rich. Discuss.
