Feminism Is Not Here To Help Men.
As a feminist one of the question I get frequently from men whenever I'm talking about feminism is "does it also speak up for men"?...

first I'm going to say, why do you have to be so fucking selfish, like you don't need to directly benefit from Justice to speak up against injustice, do you? And patriarchy on its own is injustice against women...
so why do you want this to be about you before you identify with it?

And now to answer your question, NO.

Feminism is not here to help you.

I know you've heard that feminism is about equality of both sex, which undoubtedly is true...
but it's focus is on girls, the under privileged gender, the one who needs advocacy in order to get the same preference as a man, the one who society tells only belong in the kitchen, the one the world measure her success only if she is affiliated with a...
Man in the form of marriage, because that will mean she has good character.

Now remind me how this is about you again?
Two, feminism is "the advocacy of women's rights on the ground of the equality of the sexes.

I personally prefer this definition to the other, because here it clearly shows the defect to equality, it shows that for there to be equality,...
Women have to be advocated for, there need to be voices as loud as a trumpet saying 'No to this system'.

Even, take a look at all the things feminism stand to liberate men from, most of them if not all are self induced and is largely beneficial to them that's why they cling to it.
Even though a lot of the times they blindly hurt themselves by also clinging....
to the system, women still get hurt the more. For instance, "Toxic masculinity", a topic for another day. Men, if you want change get it yourself because you're the one capable of liberating yourself from the prison you put yourself in...
