I can kind of see how they came to that conclusion. I tend to shy away from female fantasy authors because many tend to for whatever reason include a lot of graphic sexuality, sometimes to the point of nearly being porn. That is not to say that all female fantasy authors do that, I love Margaret Weis for example, but so from in my experience female authors are more likely to feel the need to lift the veil and describe scenes that male authors would leave off page and to the imagination.

Given that trend it might be possible to conclude that those female authors are doing so because they think, or are told that is what female readers want. Of course the fallacy there is to assume that female authors would be gearing their work towards women rather than a general audience.
