  • Temple builds a squeeze machine that she wants to keep in her college dorm, but professors don't let her keep it because they think that it is sexual, but there is no discussion of sex nor does the machine resemble any sort of sex toy.

There are scenes in which male chauvinistic attitude towards a woman's intelligence and ability plays a significant part in what the protagonist has to overcome.
