What did this part mean? Am we supposed to know?

>The way it ended with Gertrude Stein was strange enough. We had become very good friends [...]
>It was before noon but the maidservant poured me a glass of eau-de-vie, put it in my hand and winked happily. The colorless alcohol felt good on my tongue and it was still in my mouth when I heard someone speaking to Miss Stein as I had never heard one person speak to another; never, anywhere, ever.
>Then Miss Stein's voice came pleading and begging, saying, 'Don't, pussy. Don't. Don't, please don't. I'll do anything, pussy, but please don't do it. Please don't. Please don't, pussy.'
>I swallowed the drink and put the glass down on the table and started for the door

It makes sense that Stein was so arrogant and smug in public, she liked to play the subservient bottom dyke behind closed doors.

It means Hem admired and valued Gertrude Stein's friendship and mentorship until he saw the lesbo side of her life.

I doubt he gave a fuck about her being a dyke, he was a man who understood the appreciation of the female form, but that submissiveness and servility is something that would turn his stomach - or at least turn the stomach of the image he liked to project.

i think he just left because he heard them fucking

Can someone confirm this? It's bugging me. Did he hear an argument or sex? What does this mean:
> I heard someone speaking to Miss Stein as I had never heard one person speak to another; never, anywhere, ever.

It was her partner walking out on her. It was a fight.
>>

Still, Hemingway is a pretty worldly guy. He even describes earlier in the book how he is crude in comparison to another lady who advises him he spent too much time in the army around perverts and ruffians. So what has he never heard before ever?
>>
>>7577268
It was still a different era and he didn't like seeing that type of thing. Especially in someone he's supposed to look up to.
>>
>>7577261
I think this correct. If I recall, "pussy" was an affectionate nickname back then.
>>
>>7577268
It's always hard when the people we look up to become mortal in our eyes. That's what he couldn't stomach.
>>
>>7577408
Yes, this. He was fine with Stein being a lesbian, he just didn't want to see it. Walking in on a fight and having her all submissive and begging was too much for him, so he stopped seeing her.

What a faggot.

Well, Hemmmingway was rumored like like the d.
