Have you considered that what you actually like might be genres more popular with male authors? Might just be a corollary of something like that.

It’s definitely a possibility. I enjoy horror and thrillers with lots of gore. I can rarely find gory books written by female authors

My experience is that as soon as a thriller is the least bit gory the female characters will be just fucking terrible. Even when the author or one of the authors (I'm looking at you "Lars Kepler" aka Alexander and Alexandra Ahndoril) is a woman.
