I don't think he would be confused with functor in SML.

Call functors static classes and you cut the language from intuition. In
such language anybody can express anything. But to arrive at something one
needs intuition!

Now, what mathematically blind programmers can gain from learning about
monad if they are taught that functor is a class?
