Another interesting thing is that she isn't even honest about not liking women in groups. The rejected arc in which Elly clashes with a woman named Marta starts off by assuming that when women meet, they are compelled to hate one another on sight and can only co-exist if one of them is proven to be somehow inferior. Since Marta was clearly supposed to have a better, easier life than Elly, there was no possible way they could be friends because both of them are the creation of a very insecure, self-loathing woman who is bitterly jealous of every other woman on the planet.
The third interesting thing is that Lynn eventually managed to retool this arc as well. Just as she turned Not-Weight Watchers into the Not-Aerobics Class, she recast the whole "I'm not jealous of this person, she's just plain EVIL" arc. Granted, the passive, whining dimwit in question was Lizardbreath and the EVIL woman happened to be Thérèse but Lynn did manage to get it published in the end..
