Does it really bug anybody else when men refer to women as “females”?

Why do guys do this? I’d like to think it’s because they’re including “women and girls” in their description, so “females” is supposed to mean “all female-gendered persons in particular,” but I don’t go around saying, “I haven’t been with many males,” or “Some males really like back rubs” or “Males enjoy gardening.”

It makes it sound like the men – “males” – in question are just dogs.
