On the french braid of hating her mother.

A few weeks ago, we were treated to a strip in which Elly stood there being defeated by her evil, chaos-worshipping, mother-hating daughter who declared that she needed to deny Elly the happiness of putting her hair up in a ponytail. It might look like a strip in which a goofy boomer lost sight of the fact that her child is a person in her own right with her own tastes but since we're dealing with a vengeful clod of an artist, the accompanying Lynnsight that had our hero whine piteously about how Katie learned to put her hair up in a style Lynn likes without having her loving mother help her kind of spells it out. We're dealing with a person who sees a child learning to do something on her own in order to somehow please the crazy woman who she calls a mother and comes to the stupid conclusion that she's doing it to be a jerk to her poooooooooooor, long-suffering mother who only asks the Earth and everything in it. Never does Lynn have the least inclination to see that people aren't trying to crush her because she assumes that they all have her overweening need to pulverize people for daring to tell the EVIL LIE!!!!!!!!!!! that people are individuals and all see the world in a different way than she does when it's clear to her that all understand as she does.
