41. Only a fool would look for reason in a concept that is completely unreasonable

So I can't understand it, which apparently I am faulted for since obviously I'm a man and have a vested interest in perpetuating the "patriarchy".

They are effectively saying what they think are virtues are the ones all women should value (when clearly this is not the case) and should apply directly to men (since the only difference between the two genders is the plumbing). It also turns out that the virtues they value happen to coincide with the virtues right wingers value. And while right wingers engage in slut-shaming with the motivation of controlling women and blaming victims, some feminists engage in slut-shaming with the motivation of freeing them from the "patriarchy". So ironically their motivations are nearly exact opposites, but the effect of their actions are exactly the same.
