"It definitely seems as though you have a general hate for all men. Yes, it may stem from your personal experiences with certain men, but from this you have inferred that this planet would be better off without men. Blatant sexism.
"Who's to say that human actions and consequences are a uniform thing?
That is, perhaps this universe's uniqueness lies in our ability to do right or wrong, or to have these concepts at all.
