The problem is that women have very varying views of what "equality" is - many women want to have their cake and eat it too.
A man cannot go out on a date, and not expect to (at the very least) offer to pay for everything - it's expected of him. Yet, that same woman he is forced by society to purchase meals and entertainment for gets preferential treatment for jobs. Similarly, if a draft were to be done again, this man may get his card picked to go, but the woman wouldn't have any chance of being drafted at all.
Suppose this same woman became pregnant due to her own ignorance involving properly taking birth control pills. That man would either be forced to accept that the woman will kill the child via abortion, or the man would be forced to pay child support for the next 18 years. He gets no say in the process. If they were to decide to marry, the man also has to spend 2-3 months of his salary on an engagement ring, while the woman he gives it to bears no financial obligation to repay him. Should this couple decide to get a divorce, the woman would almost be guaranteed custody of the children as well as come out with a majority of the couple's assets, regardless of her contributions towards obtaining them.
The fact of the matter is that males have given up their power, and are moving towards (if not as close as it can come to) equality. Women have the choice to work, and it is commonplace for both the man and woman in a marriage to have jobs. Women can do pretty much everything that a man can.... and yet feminists aren't happy with this. What has being a woman prevented you from doing? Please tell me!
Men have given up so much for equality that young boys are now falling behind their female classmates in schools - mostly due to a female-oriented education system. They altered it such that women may succeed, and now they are, but at the expense of the boys in the classes.
As a man, I definitely do not 100% agree with all I have said - in fact, I probably only really believe about 50% of it. I'm excited to buy an engagement ring, I'd never ask a woman to go to war in my place, and I could go on, but I was trying to make a point. Reading that, surely you can understand why many men feel that feminist's demands are excessive (especially in the case of extreme feminism). My point is that no matter how hard we try, there will never be a true "equality." I'm sorry, but women were biologically meant to become pregnant. There is nothing I can do to change that. As a man, I will have higher car insurance and will actually be purchasing an engagement ring within the next few days - and in doing so will be spending a large sum of money on what I consider to be the most important investment of my life. Obviously, I'm okay with that.
I'm trying to make you understand that there is a TRADE OFF between the genders - men will always be one way, and women will be another. There will be certain advantages and disadvantages to both sides, and while you need to protect your interests, extremism on either side is pretty silly. I believe in equality as a concept, but in reality, equality will never happen. You just need to try to meet up somewhere in the middle - give some here, take some there, and get a happy medium.
