I would think it makes sense, as many women tend to be overemotional and unable to handle criticism well. Not that men can't be, but men tend to be a lot more confident and uncaring then women. If someone blasts their riding on a forum, they're more apt to shrug and go "whatever you say" and take it with a grain of salt whereas women tend to over analyze everything.
Haha, which I guess wasn't the point of the topic, but just general experience. I've gotten angry at my coaches before for not being more critical and overbearing on me, and it actually stems from almost being "afraid" because they're so tired of getting cried at. I hate hearing "No, you look good!" when I know I look like a sack of potatoes. I'm not paying you to compliment me dang it!
Huge congrats on your progress, that's a great compliment! Personally, I think when women put their minds to it, they can easily learn faster then men. If women can get past the hinderance of being emotional, they're harder to sway from perfection whereas a lot of men tend to be satisfied with the subpar if THEY think they're doing a good job.
I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.
