...was that Darcy despised only the ladies ;-) at the Meryton Assembly because he agreed to dine with the officers in ch.7 along with Bingley and Mr. Hurst.

We can't say how Darcy felt about militia officers in general, but I'm just saying we can't judge his feelings about the truly local inhabitants (male or female) by the way he acted towards the officers.
