Bottom line folks . . . ask yourself this question
If the world were more masculine would it be better or worse?
Or if the world were more feminine would it be better or worse?

You would have Hillary Clinton as president which is just as bad as a Bush. If you follow her and everything she stands for is war. She helped promote the war in Libya, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iraq. Or you would have someone like Condoleeza Rice.
Or is there inconclusive proof that women could be just as bad or even worse than males:
Countess Elizabeth Bathory:
After 29 years of marriage in 1604 Count Ferencz Nadasdy died and shortly after rumors began to surface about Bathory's cruel treatment of her female servants. As she only tortured and murdered servants no one cared.
In 1609 Elizabeth's luck began to change. She was accused of murdering girls of lower noble classes sent to her for schooling. She was tried in 1611 and sentenced to house arrest.
Darya Saltykova b. 1730 d. 1801 was a Russian noblewoman accused of torturing and murdering at least 100 of her serfs. Most of the serfs she murdered were children and young girls Complaints about Saltykova were ignored by officials for a very long time until relatives of her victims were able to bring an official petiton before Catherine the Great who sentenced her to be chained to a public platform for one hour wearing a sign stating 'This Woman tortured and Murdered', Saltykova was later imprisoned in the basement of a convent for the remainder of her life.
One of the most infamous figures in New Orleans history Madame Lalaurie was a socialite who lived in the French Quarter of New Orleans. Delphine allegedly killed, tortured and mutilated 100 of her slaves.
One of the most infamous stories of Lalaurie's cruelty involves an 8 year old slave girl who was brushing her hair. Lalaurie brutally beat the child who tried in vain to escape but fell to her death from a balcony.
Catalina de los Ríos y Lisperguer
Catalina de los Ríos y Lisperguer was a Chilean aristocrat often called "La Quintrala", she was extremely cruel to her tenants and slaves, torturing them and murdering them. She avoided punishment for years due to her extreme wealth, she was eventually tried for the murder of 40 peasants but she was not convicted due to her familial ties. She died in 1655 and her house was abandoned for many years due to fear that her malevolent spirit may live on.
Enriqueta Marti was born in Barcelona, Spain. She is an extremely disturbing figure in history, she was a child murderer and also a procuress of children for the purpose of prostitution.
Another way Enriqueta Marti made her living was by selling charms and potions to the wealthy of Barcelona. What they did not know is that in those potions were the ground up remains of her child victims.
To conclude, because you haven't done nearly enough digging around into the subject you should have found women can be just as ruthless as men can be. The reason you don't hear of the atrocities is because there weren't very many women in charge.
Whether a man in charge or a woman you will have the same outcome in a different way, meaning death and etc. The world would be a utopia under women only if there was no race, borders, or a limited amount of resources. If there is a limited amount of resources it becomes my people have to eat before yours.
So please quit trying to act like womens crap don't stink.

A world of ONLY women, ... hmmm, ...instead of just alot of fighting, there would be alot of CRYING,... then FIGHTING,...(only much more sadistic and brutal)...LOL
I can tell you what I WOULDN'T do. I wouldn't kill or torture somebody to obtain food. I would look for all other ways before reducing myself to a violent, sadistic criminal. Despite that, your argument is flawed for the following reasons: I'm not arguing against stealing food when you're starving. I'm arguing against sadistic, violent and deadly crimes, something the male gender dominates by a very large margin. I never said I want to rid the planet of all men. I said I want to rid men (who are afflicted) of their sadistically violent streak.
