Holden doesn't have a very high opinion about women. He finds them phony and lacking in depth of character; he also gives women no credit for having any type of intelligence, believing men to be far superior in their thought processes. Holden sees women as moving through life on emotion, acting on their instincts rather than giving their actions any type of thought. All in all, he sees women, or maybe I should say the "girls" he socializes with as nothing more than "things" to use for enjoyment. He is quite immature and overly vain about his own worth.
