I detected a snideness to it, first of all, and it comes at a point
where she's talking about not having learned much in
college--presumably because of all of these politically correct
liberals, etc. The snideness seems to me to indicate that the
professor had some sapphic interest in her because she's also been
writing in that letter about how her looks affect people.
