I suspect it has a lot more to do with what's going on inside the character's heads than what their body parts are.

I do write a lot of Buffy, but outside of B:tVS fandom (a portion of my writing that grows larger every year) I tend choose the male's POV to write from a lot of the time when I have the opportunity. Usually, I think, that's because it was an overwhelmingly male story to begin with and the men in it had more power than the women, but not always. And nothing explains why I get so much applause for writing Wesley Wyndham-Price!

It all comes down to which characters a writer is most comfortable inhabiting, I'd guess; how well you can find an aspect of them that really resonates with you and spin it out from there.
