Just a few questions, of no one in particular

Why is it that I hear so often how horribly unfair and unreasonable feminism is to “demand” some particular personal sacrifice or other?

Why is it that I never hear, for example, how unreasonable vegetarianism is to demand the giving up of hot dogs? Or how unfair of communism to demand we not own factories?

Or, even more to the point, why do these folks never ask why patriarchy demands that we compromise our feminist values at every turn in order to survive?

Why is feminism the only ideology, body of work and movement that is supposed to contort itself like some kind of philosophical pretzel to fit the personal preferences of any person who wishes to espouse it?

Just asking.
