Men are more disadvantaged than women in western societies by far and its not even close.
Men can have almost everything taken away from them and their lives destroyed because a woman claimed she was raped by him.
They can have their children/property taken away and have other rights/privileges taken away in courts when/if the woman decides to get a divorce. And women initiate the vast majority of divorces within the u. s. which not only hurts children but hurts men just as much.1

I don't really have a problem with feminism itself, but the large social justice warrior section of it. The ones that want equality of outcome instead of equality of opportunity. The ones that spout nonsense statistics without any critical thinking (wage gap, 1 in 5 women... etc.). The ones that campaign against male rights (for example shelters for men) and any conferences or speeches talking about them (for example talking about male suicide). The ones that want to live in a bubble and have their safe spaces and not debate about anything or talk about these issues.
So yeah, I don't identify as a feminist, but am and advocate of both men's and women's rights and equality of opportunity.2
