in consequence of the missive, Respect, penned by Srirup
It's possible to respect someone immensely, but treat them disrespectfully. At that point in the story, Darcy is aware of his feelings (which he wouldn't have if he didn't respect her), but not self-aware enough to understand the reasons for them. His proposal is basically a continuation of his argument with himself about marrying her, and while that was certainly a disrespectful thing to say, I don't think it means that he didn't respect her overall.
