Stereotypical Lesbians

Todd Haynes makes it a point to have Therese's pov be of two lesbians (one with more of a butch style.) In the book version Therese looks at them and is confused because her love for Carol does not fit the stereotypical mold of what lesbians look like during that time. I think that is what Haynes was trying to express in this scene.
