How do I respond to a non-Catholic calling God she?

I have a non-Catholic friend that called God She. I don’t believe they do it out of disrespect, just ignorance. We had a short conversation on how God is neither man or woman but spirit, then I said that I didn’t know more than Jesus and He said Father. I know my friend was wrong. Can anyone give me a better way to explain this to my friend?

Thanks and God bless,
