If i was so intimidated by falling that i would quit training, i wonder why i would have started to begin with- couldn't they See people flying and falling and splatting? Did they think somehow that this will not apply to them?
Good point. But perhaps that they thought they could learn to do it, but then decided it wasn't for them?
I think it's best to try to see if you like it first, and even if they didn't stick around, they should at least be appauled for trying. They tested their limits and discovered them. I see nothing wrong with that -- male or female.
