The problem isn't "feminism" itself. As feminism sexually liberated women, patriarchy framed this as women being freely available to fulfill the sexual desires of men. Women wearing less clothes, being hypersexualized, having more sex outside of marriage/commitments, etc was used to create this sense of sexual entitlement among men that women are on display for their consumption.

The only role of feminism is that reactionary men and male domination try to hijack feminist movements for their own purposes.

That's an interesting point.

I can see where you are coming from in terms of incel feelings of entitlement.

I would consider it natural as one grows up to have an expectation that one is going to have sex, and it certainly is deeply unhealthy to think of this is an entitlement.

What do you think is taking these people from having a reasonable expectation that they will have sex, to a point that they feel they are entitled to it?

It's perfectly fine for men to hope that one day they will have sex (if this is what they want, that is). But the difference between hoping for and entitlement, is the difference between seeing women as objects of their desire vs equal beings with their own autonomy.

Women aren't slaves to serve men's needs and desires. This is what entitled incels need to get through their heads and stop obsessing over. Instead of focusing on why women won't get with them, they should focus on developing and improving themselves.
