I've been wondering the same thing since my 10th grade English teacher asked the class that very question. I personally like to think of it as an accident. But any reading I give it comes out sounding misogynist, and I don't think the author so intended, so I don't talk about it much.

That, of course, is what makes this story great--the not knowing.
