I can think of at least one way it could be taken wrong. People might think that the message is "women are only happy without men," which of course, it isn't.

Well, that does sound like message (or at least, it's Justice's opinion). 'Nique "looks happy," therefore she must have spent the day without men. What alternate interpretation is there?

How about:

'Nique has been experiencing near-constant personal angst with the patriarchy and running into Dudes Who Don't Get It as well as generally frustrating dynamics that come up within patriarchal social structures almost any time that men and women interact, so a sudden shift in her demeanor to one of unworried and untroubled happiness is recognizable to another women who has experienced the same as being the result of a rest from all things Patriarchy and a chance to revel in human socialization without it.

See, no need to generalize it to all women when we know what 'Nique's unique personal circumstance is. OR EVER. BECAUSE FEMINISM.

...exactly that. That it's her opinion.
Also, not so much an absolute as a more-likely-than-the-alternative.

You might be be surprised at how many women dont appreciate the company of other women in general, other than their besties, simply for the fact that they are women and therefor, uninteresting and unworthy of attention.

Alas, I was one of those unawaringly man worshipping, women (self) haters in retrospect.
It really is so subtle and insidious that it took deep introspection for me to become self aware of this.

Its not about putting men down, but not placing them on some imaginary pedestal either, at the expense of realizing yourself.

We all do this all the time with people we know and talk to regularly. "You look happy, you must have heard back about the job," or whatever. Change the variable of what Xanthe interprets as the cause and it suddenly sounds less inflammatory.

Ah, fair enough - it makes much more sense as a personalized message.

After re-reading this, I think what Xanthe wanted to hear was actually the opposite of what she said. I think she wanted 'Nique to be happy without having to be around "only a lady friend in a women safe space with no dudes around"; her posture in the last panel seems to be one of melancholic affirmation. Kinda like "Yeah, that's what I figured, but I wish it didn't have to be that way." sort of thing.

Darq makes a good point. Xanthe isn't going all 'Hell yeah girl, who needs men!" More like "kind of sucks men around you make you feel this way."
