Holden really isn't crazt about either sex. He doesn't like women and only sees them as sexual objects. Men don't fare any better, he doesn't like men with athletic builds..... rough and tumble sorts, particualry football players (at school). Holden generally only mentions men in terms of being perverted or idiots.
