In pre historic times they could just use force to obtain what they wanted from women.
From the dawn of civilization they were prohibited from doing that but could use wealth to get a wife. Furthermore through most of history sex outside marriage was looked down upon meaning everyone got a partner each.
Since feminism women no longer need men for financial support. With the reduction of religious influence people can have multiple sex partners, allowing all the women to just date and sleep with the good looking men.
Unattractive men no longer have any means to get women for dates/sex/relationships/marriage. Is this the worst time to live as an unattractive man?

So first of all I think you should probably read "The Score: How the quest for sex has shaped the modern man" it sounds like something that would interest you! And possibly send a little less time day dreaming in history class and a little more time actually studying, because at the dawn of man (aka pre-historic times), it would have been even harder for an "unattractive man" to get a date/sex/relationship/marriage and women generally slept with whomever they felt was attractive in order to raise the likely-hood they would get pregnant, hence why women can have so many more orgasms in a shorter period of time then a man. It is only with in stricter and relatively modern civilizations and the influx of mono-god religions that humans that created a society which shamed women for their multiple sex partners and ended up with less "attractive males". Even at those times, however, a male could be left without a partner if families saw him as an unattractive mate for their daughter. All the influences that you could bring up that would change this still exist today. You can still mail-order a bride from other countries, buy a woman's love, or forcibly raper as much as you could during those times. Of course you would be looked down apart now just as much as you would then. (Just to make it clear I am not saying it is OK to rape a woman, I'm just saying that it was looked on just as much in pre-history as it is today)1
