Today, Lynn avenges herself against two drunken assholes who couldn't shut up and let her enjoy a night alone by by randomly damning every list-last man on the planet as a chauvinistic brute who HATES the idea of women being allowed out in public.

(Strip Number 4491, Original Publication Date, 6 April 1985)

Panel 1: Now that they've listened to the final seminar, Elly and Claire celebrate the end of the puppetry workshop weekend and their last night of freedom from unappreciative oaf husbands and clingy, needy children who want to get in Mom's way for some reason no one can ever understand.

Panel 2: When Elly asks Claire if they should celebrate (by getting stinko on gassy beer), Claire is all for that.

Panel 3: When they get to the pub, the two of them do that irritating and fake-ass looking thing and toast themselves, women, and friendship.

Panel 4: At the bar, Straw Chauvinist A tells his fellow wife-oppressing, sports-loving, culture-hating Neanderthal that this is what happens when you let them out of the kitchen. (This irritates me personally because the more appropriate and sensible response to what Elly and Claire are doing is to say "Saddest sorority reunion EVER!!!")

Summary: The irritating thing about today's exercise in randomly damning a gender because of a willful misinterpretation of events is that, as Lynn explains it, she's trying to avenge herself on two slobbering drunks who wouldn't take no for an answer and ruined her lovely evening with one of the soul-mates she'd made. Being the victim of asshattery wasn't the problem as such as her being struck dumb by it owing to her making a living stealing punchlines from sitcomsthinking up zingers.
