Firstly you are completely contradicting yourself by saying 'This is hugely insulting to mean', but voting for con. Okay let's ignore this confusion and get to the debate.

Feminism was founded when women were treated as if they were inferior to men. They weren't allowed an education, couldn't vote and were nothing more than sex-slaves to the men of that day and age. The whole idea of feminism was that woman should be treated equally to men and have the same rights as them. Hardly insulting to men. Since then they have been treated better, but still are still on average paid less than men and in some countries are still denied education. In the 21st century a few individuals calling themselves feminists have been rather insulting to men. They are not true feminists. They're just attention-seeking idiots who have taken advantage of the women who fought immensely for their rights to justify hating men.

In conclusion the idea of true feminism is not insulting to men...

Feminism is a movement for the enfranchisement and empowerment of women. At it's ideological core, its interaction with men is limited to equality, whether that equality takes the form of removing traditional barriers women face (for instance, preferential hiring of men over women; valuing men's work inherently higher than women's*), or removing the discriminatory treatment of femininity (the idea that women are inherently motherly or weak; the idea that women aren't sexual, etc.).

* The topic is on occupation, not on the gender pay-gap. Professions that women undertake at a greater percentage than men are more likely to be lowly paid.

Actually, the goal of feminism is to be superior to men, not equal. They are already equal.
