I remember in one of my summer leagues this one girl tried to hit me when I had the puck (3 on 3 league) so I pretty much just threw my hip at her to protect the puck and she went flying. She decided to throw a fit afterwards at the ref claiming that I threw a bodycheck... which made no sense, because I had the damn puck!

I get pissed when guys get overly physical, but more because of the "Seriously, I'm 5-foot-4 and you have to crosscheck me to move me out of the front of the net?" aspect. Bumping happens. I get pissed when anyone gets overly physical with beginners too, because that's kind of assholish and the guys who do it are invariably the NHLers-in-their-own-mind variety. It's friggin' beer league. They're not getting scouted.
You have to expect that in beer league hockey. Some guys will throw hits and some guys will get chippy in front of the net. We all deal with it from time to time... guys going for slewfoots, sticking the stickblade in the back of the knee, etc etc. Your gender won't earn you any preferential treatment.
