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!
Sorry if I caused any offence with the 'act like a girl' comment.
There was a female player playing with me today who said to a couple of the guys "why aren't you checking me like you do the guys?" or words to that effect. It is hard though, as much as I try to adopt the mindset of 'if its a checking game then they're fair game' it is difficult to carry through on it.
