I often hear people say "she" when they refer to a user of their application, for example. In documentation, or in email. Why do we say "she", why not "he or she" or "they"? I am not a native speaker, maybe this is a trivial question, but I do not know the answer.
It might be because of the stereotype that men are considered to be "providers" for women, and since most software developers are men, the word "she" is used to refer to a user because the application is "provided" to the user.
It might also be because a "user" in the software development world is generally considered to not be very technically savvy, and the existence of the stereotype that women are less technically savvy than men.
