Ice cream man! Ice cream man!

Why is it always an ice cream man? I don't remember ever seeing a single ice cream woman. Primary school teachers are usually women, which is often justified by saying that women are better with children, or children bond better with women, or men are untrustworthy. Why not the same for ice cream folk?

EDIT:
Woah. Ok, the above thought came to me because an ice cream truck just went by, and brought with it a wave of nostalgia. It just went by a second time, and I friggin' went for it. Yessiree, I'm enjoying a cotton candy bubblegum swirl popcicle right now. Anyways, the ice cream man... was a woman! Go figure.
