It's got nothing to do with feminism and everything to do with seeing women and femmes as something to be owned. If anything it's a last gasp, not a new development. There's been entitled nerds who think women owe them shit for as long as there's been dudes without self-awareness. Trying to link the increasing acceptance of (for the most part a very liberal and conciliatory branch) feminism to it is completely ignoring the problem. It's not that women are more free to choose 'high-value' (again from a completely patriarchal and toxic perspective) men, it's that young men are encouraged to see sex as an aspirational object, something to be taken instead of gifted.
