Sexism in scifi

I was thumbing through as i usually do twitter to check on people i follow.

I came across a post by a female SF novelist commenting on the sexism of authors in that genre.

I believe anyone can write for any genre, a man writing romance, a woman writing scifi etc.

So as other authors amongst my followers, why is scifi stereotypically men with glasses; and romance women who drink white wine spritsers?
