If you saw the earlier post on David Gilmour, writer and sexist asshat, you'll know that he doesn't deign to teach any women writers or works by people of color or most gays because they just aren't his bag and being master of the fucking universe he only has to expose students to shit he likes, which doesn't include any women but Virginia Woolf. But he doesn't teach her because their little heads can't comprehend her awesomeness and he's in no position to help them with that, being a teacher and all.
After the sky rained down "WTF?" on him, he makes it better by saying it was because he was conducting a conversation in French while the young woman was interviewing him and they were "tossed off" remarks. He's also really sorry to hear people were offended.
That cleared everything up right there.
