Shouldn't feminae be optional here?

Why doesn't it accept "discipulas"? Are students exclusively female? If so, why do we even have "discipula"?

In fact, women probably wouldn't have been teaching boys in Ancient Rome, so you'd think "discipulās" would totally work... (haven't tried it; don't want to lose a heart for bloody-mindedness)
