How do int/adv players REALLY feel about n00bs on the ice?

I haven't had that come up yet - I've only played in non-checking situations, and the others really don't want to run into me because...well, I'm a girl!
Someone did bump me the other day, didn't knock me over and was really barely even a minor bit of contact, but he felt pretty bad about it. He stopped skating, asked if I was OK, etc. I've seen some collisions, almost always inadvertent, and they don't seem to spend as much time checking on the person who goes down - but just a little jostle to a n00b chick and it was all apologies!
