Family Guy Q: Why does Stewie hate Lois?

Has there ever been an explanation for that?

She has impeded his progress ever since he emerged from her wretched womb.

He's gay and is working his way through his Electra complex Stewie-style.

He's a megalomaniacal psycho.

And yes, it's funny.

He is a budding Super-villian.

Unfortunately he is also somewhat of a prodigy.

Whereas most Super-villians find an Arch-enemy in their teens at the earliest, Stewie is already instinctively seeking his. Most Super-villians find their Arch-enemies from amongst their peers, but Stewie has had only one brief, aborted foster-care incident in which to develop his age-appropriate, antisocial skills.

He has naturally selected the one human who has most tended to (inadvertantly) thwart his plans and has presumptively designated her as his Nemesis.

Hope this clears things up.

Or, maybe (as previously posted), it's just funny.

It is funny, but it also makes sense: Stewie wants to rule the world (or maybe fall for a rough trick named Steve) and Lois, being a parent, makes him eat his brussels sprouts, confines him to his crib, and takes away his death rays when he's at the table. It's enough to drive any ambiguously gay villianous monster to matricidal fantasies.

Seems like, in this season, Stewie doesn't seem to want to kill his mom.
Heck, the Family Guy movie shows an adult Stewie who is fond of his mom.

Right, but that was Stu Griffin, not Stewie. Different timeline and all.
