Feminists often say that women have been regarded as inferior and men as superior. Isn't what they really mean that they regard the traditional female roles as inferior to the traditional male roles?

And by regarding the traditional female roles as inferiors aren't feminists being prejudiced against women's natural or intrinsic properties, and therefore prejudiced against women.

I think they're implying that women are capable of more than just the traditional female role. They're not questioning the value of this role, but stating that women can do more.

Feminism is about giving women a choice.

If a woman wants to be a housewife, then so be it so long as that's what she wants and not because it's the only thing she is allowed to do.

Definitely some more extreme feminists are ignorant in that they would condemn the housewife who simply wants to be the housewife.
But as a whole, no. Most won't find these things inherently inferior themselves, it is simply the trap set upon many women to only see and be available for these roles in society that is the obvious issue.
