Tolstoy seems to have a low opinion of women much of the time. However, for as much time as his male characters spend demeaning women, the men are the ones who are constantly screwing up and are most of the time lost, confused, naive, overly emotional or not emotional enough, ask too many questions or not enough questions and spend a lot of time being weak.

Tolstoy seems to be quite aware of this too. It’s funny.
